Well, let's see.....
I bought one at launch. That's 1. 7 or so months later i think they release a limited edition zelda 3ds that I find to be absolutely gorgeous......so yeah, I pick that up. That's 2. Later still, they announce the 3ds XL that I also pick up. that's 3. Make more sense now?

You don't call paying more for a download that you can't do anything with once you've finished with it getting ripped off? How about no box, no manual? You will have to repurchase should anything happen to your 3DS (because Nintendo refuse to get with the times) What do you class as a rip off?

Actually the eShop, unlike the wii, is account based, but there is no user facing indication of that. A Nintendo Support rep can confirm it is account tied and that they can switch it for you should your 3DS fail, as they promised me.

I plan on owning digital should the account system revamp coming with the Wii U prove to be something I like.


The games have digital manuals, and oh wow , a box. So terrible. Anything happens to your 3DS, guess what? It can be gotten back. No repurchasing. Try harder.

Instead of carrying around cartridges, have the retail games all downloaded on your 3DS. Thats-a why!

I wish Nintendo would get off its lazy ass and start porting all the stuff from the Wii Virtual console to the 3DS. Yeah it will require them to re-emulate them but how hard is that for Nintendo to do? I don't know anything about programming but I'm guessing if you were given the codes source it would be really easy to make the changes required for a game to run on a 3DS...

The lack of all the GBA games is really disappointing. So many GBA titles I want to replay again. I could emulate them myself but it just isn't the same.

It's like Nintendo DOESN'T want free money. The same could be said for a lot of companies.

The game is already made...just emulate it over (Digital!!!) and make pure profit because its DIGITAL. GENIUS.

Whatever though.
