this, unfortunately :/ maybe an update could add accounts? Since the WiiU uses accounts... :/
and DS games on the eshop would be really nice. I'd pick up all the games I missed out on like Chrono Triger


WiiU doesn't even use accounts the right way, they both need to be updated alot the networks are a mess, and the fact that it's plural is an issue as well.

Although that idea would be pointless since you can still get DS games a plenty all over....heck I can still get GBA games all over O.o


no you can't

professor layton and the curious village is out of print, so is dragon quest 4 and 5, along with trace memory

you can't complete a decent ds library without spending alot of money

Maybe but just for hard to find games or only if they implement a system that lets you register your physical DS games and receive digital copies of them. I'd kill to be able to play a bunch of my DS games whenever I wanted.

3DS can play 99% of all DS games perfectly fine as is, and not to mention that Nintendo would overprice the stuff on the e-shop anyway like they already do with all their content, whereas retail stores will offload them dirt cheap unless its a pokemon/first party game, so I don't see any benefit to be had whatsoever by having them on the eshop.
