Nintendo reimbursing me for DSiWare games lost due to stolen DSi

Lucky you. If it was up to me, I'd give you nil. It's not my fault you lost your DSi (not that I'm saying it's your fault as well). Nice of them, really. One thing though, if you lost a DSi, wouldn't asking for Xenoblade Chronicles and Kirby Cursed Canvas, both Wii games, be kind of out of place?


No, because he doesn't HAVE a DSi to play them on.

Not to mention the fact that Canvas Curse is a DS game, not a Wii game...

Putting my initial skepticism aside...


Wait, so it was actually mostly physical games that got stolen? In that case, it was indeed very generous of Nintendo to do something like this.


No, only DSiWare. Well, and a copy of Canvas Curse that was in it, but that has nothing to do with the reimbursement. At least Canvas Curse wasn't valuable - beyond my heart.

They're just doing physical copies for the reimbursement because they prefer it that way, for some reason.

So you're saying that you would take no responsibility for making a viable account system to protect your consumers from these things happening.

If it wasn't the standard, I'd say "okay". But it is - the least they could do was compensate for their faulty design.


If it was a standard, this topic wouldn't exist >_>

Why you even bought that much is beyond me anyway.

I bought that much because I wanted to have a good perspective of what is good and what is not good on the DSiWare Shop Channel for a Buyer's Guide.

And yes, if it was a standard, this would exist, because it is the standard and this problem still exists. Just because it's a standard doesn't mean everyone will follow it. Nearly everyone does, however. I can use my Steam account on any number of computers, I can and have moved my PS3 and 360 games; even my PSP, seven years 3DS' senior, can do this.

Load of crap. This isolated, obviously placating attempt does not rectify the lack of a unified, transferable account system.

Glad they hooked you up, TC.

Awesome. Did you get paid for this? Someone has to do the job, but that job usually goes to a reviewer...as a job.

Also, a standard is a requirement or norm. Considering Ninty's one of the biggest videogame companies that's still going strong and has some influence over the industry as a whole, I don't believe this would be a standard. Kind of how touchscreens used to not be a standard. Or CDs, Internet Connectivity, HD...it's not a standard until all of the 'big' companies start using them on applicable devices.

I don't see why they couldn't just let you redownload your CN games to a 3DS / new DSi, instead of giving you games you didn't buy in the first place.

Sometimes I wonder about Nintendo.

Nope! Just for fun.

Also, Nintendo is not the end all be all of standards. In fact, I would argue their irrelevance for many of the standards of the industry. PS2 and Xbox both used Internet, including for the second most popular MMORPG out there. Nintendo even stated that online gaming wasn't a part of the company's plans.

Was DLC not an industry standard before Nintendo did it last year? Was HD not an industry standard until the Wii U? Was the ability to transfer games not an industry standard until Nintendo made an awkward means by which to do it a few years back? There are a lot of things that Nintendo hasn't done that are ingrained in the industry.

Apologies if that's what I seemed to have implied. I even left the touchscreen bit to show that was not what I meant. I still stand by what I mean - all major companies have to use something to be a standard. It matters not where it started from.

Examples:

Dual Screens and touchpads aren't a standard, but gyroscope technology is becoming one.

Handheld-Console connectivity wasn't a standard until the PSP.

Transferring between systems was always a standard; I think it's called "Backwards Compatibility." It just got more difficult once downloadable games became a standard. I'm ignoring the PS4 for this though. There should be something for that. Otherwise, it breaks the standard.

I don't believe DLC is a standard at all, but that goes into actual games instead of companies themselves. The ability to add DLC, however...I think that was a craze that finally became a standard later.

Now, relating to the topic at hand, that was a waste of money <_<. Reviewers could have done this and gotten paid to do so. I'm certain over half the games you bought were a waste.
