3DS eShop is really weak.

Especially the virtual console. No GBA or SNES games? Cmon Nintendo, I'd be willing to part with my cash for a lot of GBA and SNES games, not these awful Game Boy and NES games. This seems like an easy cash-in that they aren't taking advantage of...

It boggles my mind that Nintendo doesn't release GBA games on the 3DS. Its the obvious decision to get more people to buy a 3DS and spend money on the eshop.

I want N64 games on there. Paper Mario and MK64 are on the Wii shop so why exactly aren't they on 3DS?

It's an iterative process and they artificially slowed things down with the ambassador program. I'm pretty happy with what's there at the moment and I'm confident that it'll get better every year. I don't expect to see N64 games on it though, the architecture of the CPU might make an N64 emulator too unstable for Nintendo's standards.

If they wanted the eShop to be successful, all they have to do is put Pokemon RBY on there. Then slowly add all the other games up to 3rd gen.

They would sell unspeakable amounts of these games.

While I agree that they need to add GBA games, I must question how you can call GB and NES games "awful". Makes me wonder how old you are.

He's obviously under 20. So am I, but I actually enjoy NES/GB(C) games. Although I still would like SNES/N64/GBA games on the eShop. I'd re-buy a lot of my GBA games if they put them up. They also need DS games on the eShop. I mean, the Vita has PSP games on its store, so why can't the 3DS have its last gen games on the eShop?
