more Rare download ideas!!!

  • nintendo should make rare downloads an app that shows the players games they'd like but that are hard to find in that Eshop filled with stuff!!
  • Nintendo should Buy Microsoft and turn windows in a NintendOS with RARE downloads of games not available in VC
  • We should get contracted by Microsoft to make people buy XBone instead of WiiU and then everything WiiU related would be "Rare"!
  • Nintendo could make a sort of monthly puzzle minigame where the 100 first people to complete in each region would get a free download aka"Rare Download"!
  • nintendo_should_charge_more_for_vc_games_that_are_rare(lol)
  • Nintendo should start selling 16x16x16 LEDCube console with NES-like( it would be 12Bit by my calculations but it would have 8Bit look in every layer!) games in REAL 3D instead of a fake(yet prettier looking) 3D!!!!
  • I should stop making weird sugestions since most people will ignore it for being too long and looking like a troll post even though it's not my intention to troll! :(

If you had to pay like $100 for a rare game, it would be no different looking on eBay for a more reasonable copy.

They originally only cost a total of $300.
Has one of them suddenly become valuable?

Also, I downloaded Ironclad on Wii. I hear that is actually an unreleased version, so how do you calculate the value on that one, smart guy? ;)

$700 at the very least. BIN are always, always, always accurate. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Brikinger-Iron-Clad-NEO-GEO-Cartridge...

I miss Japanese games, the good stuff... Games that are imaginative, have good and unique gameplay, a great soundtrack, and replay value.

I'm off to continue my $10/€10 Wii U VC copy of Earthbound. Whatcha gonna do about that, Ogo?

If they keep releasing more cheap Virtual Console versions of rare games that cost a fortune on eBay, I'll definitely buy them all just to make you all sad pandas. Enjoy your overpriced copy of Earthbound :) !

Make Nintendo release Mother 3 on the 3DS...for $100 :D

Oh, and before you throw out the "but it's not rare" argument, there will only be...400 available downloads! And then Gamestop will buy back your 3DS with Mother 3 for $120 and then sell those "Vintage 3DS with Mother 3" for $400! It's a win-win for everyone!! :D

If @ogo79 is anything like me, then he is enjoying his complete copy (multiple in ogo's case) of Earthbound valued at $450 right now. At any time we could put them up on eBay for real cash money. :)

ive contacted nintendo about this. ive got a whole list of rare games they can add on the rare downloads program.
as the price for physical carts goes up they can raise the price on virtual console games.

Have you heard back from Nintendo? I hope they agree with you.

I've just noticed that since games on VC are downloadable so their rarity disapears at the instant they are available for download.......(not really it was obvious from the very start, I just wanted to keep the madness of this discussion alive :D )

This is exactly why Nintendo needs to make these games much more expensive. To extend the rarity. In fact, they should make the VC Downloads a couple $100 extra so that the download becomes more collectible than the cartridges.

@CaptainCharlie YES and they should put a few extra $1000 on new games that aren't selling well to compensate and make people want as collector's items! :p
