@DefHalan: The difference is that one is covered by the EULA, so in the event it ever happens, you are SOL. The other is not, however, and legally you will be made whole again afterward, else they could face a class-action. :3

@Mickeymac: Indeed. This instance here is a non-issue, but I like putting that out there because people can get quite angry when users like me put our feet down about buying digital vs. holding out for retail. :3

that said, for those few who may still be afraid Nintendo will delete games removed from the Shops or whatever — there was one instance of a glitchy game that had been released via the Wii Shop (Last Ninja 3 iirc) that was removed and users were offered refunds. If the refund was accepted, the game was deleted from the user's console, but if the refund offer went ignored the glitchy game remained. No action was taken by Nintendo before the user made the decision to accept the offered refund. For all other instances of games being removed from the VC, users who purchased and downloaded them were/are still able to play them absolutely unhindered, and i believe we may also have the option to redownload them still — i haven't checked my Wii in a while so ymmv, but last i knew the option was still there.

I've reached a conclusion that as long Nintendo doesn't delete any of my games(that is, without returning the money) I'm fine with it, I normally only download games not available in physical media(being Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate the first and only exception :D )

Right, totally agree with you on that point. It was a great motto but then customers took advantage of that which caused companies to say F that.

My favorite one is the person who orders a hamburger from a restaurant eats all of it but two bites and than says it was made wrong and that they should get a free burger.

The one I love is cause I work for a donation place I get customers trying to donate nasty tore up sofas or soiled mattresses and I tell them that its against company policies. They love to say "you're a donation place you can't refuse me" as I show them the list from corporate on what we can and cannot take.

Or the customers that only order a drink, eat the free chips and salsa, and leave a Mexican restaurant

Yeah gotta love those people too.

again, I don't think this story is true, but if its true what Nintendo did is illegal......

1. Guy have club Nintendo Account, and creates family account with sub-users under the main account
2. Register multiple copies of FEA and SMTIV under the different users of the account, this is permitted
3. Got multiple promotional codes nothing wrong so far
4. Redeemed all promotional codes on the same 3DS, here Nintendo decides is fishy and take action.....

Now the problem is that yah its fishy, but everything was done according to Nintendo own rules

In retrospect, if the multiple games were purchased legally, Nintendo didn't really lose anything.

One massive flaw in this, it assumes that the games were actually purchased by the person. You can open up unsold games, take out the registration code, then reseal it .... if you work for a game store. It's not that difficult to do, thus, Nintendo has no obligation to simply trust everyone who does something that looks suspicious. There are so many variables, Nintendo did the right thing.

Hence why I said "if" ;)

As for the digital vs. physical argument, I think this is moot. I doubt Nintendo will willingly delete your games if you did nothing wrong. Besides, like others said, they can also brick your system.

It sounds like he tried to scam them. If anything, he didn't even give the $30 promo eShop funds to their rightful owners, which were his family.
1 promo code was allowed so no one takes advantage. They just fixed a loophole they thought no one would try to cross, probably.

Either way, he jacked his family's codes or didn't follow the promo rules. Hmmm...
No on goes on to their Club Nintendo account, sees 3 promo codes, and says "hey, thanks family". I'm pretty sure they would want there promo codes.
Regardless, Nintendo has the right to take back what is not entitled, which is clearly states is the case with this mishap.

It's like if someone gives you back the incorrect amount of change at the register(in your benefit), you walk away knowing they gave you something extra, now they're asking for it back, and you don't wanna give it back, so they take it back.

@TBD - Yeah, I try to keep it in mind, I know I don't own everything I download. I guess it's just because I only play my games once these days that I don't have much of an issue with it, though since that's just a personal take on the matter, it would be wrong for me to dismiss the worries of others.
