They're still trying to update the prices, but @ogo79 has filled Nintendo HQ with so much gold that they've clogged down productivity! Be patient people.

With the partying over and gold problems sorted, Reggie is only waiting for the OP's command to update the prices.

From a reliable source:

It was revealed earlier today that "rare downloads" will be launching on May 31st. In an interview with Sony Life, Nintendo genie Urbane Champione revealed that "rare downloads" were "Going along according to plan". The reason for the delay was to incorporate Mario Kart 8 into the program, he says. "We knew that we had to start this program off right, so we thought it would be a good idea to launch it with the next hotly anticipated entry in Mario Kart." According to what he says next, the first 11 copies will retail for $60 on the Nintendo e-Shop, and every download after that will be $11 more expensive. The physical release has been cancelled to make sure nobody misses out on this historic event..

It seems the wait is almost over!

According to sources, the new Star Fox game will retail for $599 as a "rare download". Thanks to Ogo79 and everybody's hard work, this is finally happening! They'll be revealing the full lineup of "rare downloads" later tonight. Stay tuned!

But I thought the Famicom cart was still sort of affordable.
Unless it's a rare download because we get the game in ENGLISH, which MFF BADLY needs! :D

Yeah, the program wasn't revealed at E3 this year because @Ogo79 got lost in his gold vault and couldn't make it. Now they're waiting to announce it so they can incorporate the Wii Balance Board.

its taking a little longer than expected, but that just gives people time to save money for the games.
if i have to suffer by paying what i did for carts, im sure going to make sure you all suffer as well.

Nintendo should just reprint everything that is selling for double RRP or more. Sell it for say 80$

Well, I will be sending some paperwork to OP, and he'll have to review if we should continue to allow your thinking and opinion privileges.

Thanks to my epic hoarding program, the price for an E.T. cart — and the privilege to play one of the greatest games of all time — will soon be $500.

Five hundred and ninety-nine US DOLLARS. I believe the proper quote is.

You're talking to the resident Sony E3 2006 fan, I know my quotes. :P (Was gonna edit it but I thought it sounded okay anyways)
