man, why are those eshop prices so high?

It's probably been discussed before, but why do they seem to not want to even compete with the iphone's store? Even the same exact game will be twice the price on the eshop. I also have 5 dollars leftover I'm pretty desperate to spend, and pretty much the best thing I can find for a price that low is a breakout clone from the DSi shop. Do they even do sales?

How is he sol when he will have money instead of wasting it on the eshop? Having money is better than overpriced system locked DLC anyday.

Why do all online stores have to compete with iOS?
Not everything has to be valued at $1.

And yeah they have sales, some regions more than others.

Yeah the e-shop is pretty 'meh' in my opinion. I'm glad it's there but I haven't bought anything yet and am dissapointed that there aren't any N64, Gamecube, or Wii games available. Also compared to the Iphone/Ipod Touch 'App Store' the e-Shop just looks bad, plain and simple. Nintendo just doesn't get that there has to be incentive for 'digital downloads'.

And it does make me peeved that nintendo doesn't offer demos of their AAA titles. These are minor gripes though and I do love my 3ds xl and nintendo. but they aint perfect.
