I own a 3DS, Vita, PS3, and PC, and yet the 3DS is the only one of those I don't buy anything digitally from.

I'm not saying there aren't great games on there, because I'm sure there are, I just think it's incredibly overpriced you get no discount on full retail games and the eShop originals are pretty pricey themselves, you could get a full PSP game on PSN for about the same price as a short eShop game.

Nintendo is known for their Nintendo Tax, they never have price drops on anything, which is why games like Mario Kart DS are still $30. It's a shame because their are some eShop games i'd like to play I just can't be arsed to support them as it stands now though.

it sucks, but nintendo can get away with an astonishing number of things. (purchases not tied to accounts, transfer limit,etc)
Only stupid people make generalizations. No exceptions.

I agree the eShop is way overpriced. 3.60 for a Gameboy port is practically insulting.
