It appears I was a little behind on this story as http://gonintendo.com released an article on this according to one of the moderators on my own site.

Hey, maybe our Wiis will be worth a lot of money in the future, because they'll contain WiiWare that can't be purchased any longer. And the lower the sales the title received the more rare it'll be $$$$$. (<:

The only problem is most of the WiiWare that can no longer be purchased isn't very good, so they probably won't be in as high demand as, say, Mega Man 9 and World of Goo would (if they were system exclusives of course).

How good a game is rarely has anyting to do with what collectors will pay for it. There are numerous examples of this on Virtual Boy where some of the worst games are the ones that go for the most money (Waterworld!).

The real question is whether virtual games will ever really have collectors value as unlike old cartridges etc there is literally no difference between ones bought officially and ones sourced from dubious means. In ten years time I imagaine that latter will become a common justification for these titles being viewed as abandonware.

this does bring up an interesting issue. Do you think having online games always available for purchase makes them less attractive in the consumer's eyes? Vs retail games that are supply limited...
I'm not talking about the big sellers, since those are always available in excess at retail, but rather the smaller games that you don't expect to sell millions of copies and be in demand for years, like the magic obelisk. If it was a retail game (assuming for the sake of this argument such a thing made sense) it would have received a limited run of maybe a hundred thousand copies and that wold be all. Would that have encouraged interested customers not to wait? If so, does removing the game from WiiWare only to bring it back at a much later date have potential to increase demand?

@nObody I don't think it'll create anymore demand by removing a title and bringing it back later. I believe it's potential to sell would stay the same, as it would still appeal to the same crowd. It would just draw more attention from Wii owners who were potential buyers in the first place, but had chosen to procrastinate.

Can someone change this topic to "Wiiware games removed from the wii shop" so we can keep tabs on all games that get removed in one place?
Looking at you TBD :D

I wonder if they just took it today? Pretty freaking annoying that they keep doing this.

edit: And no one's still said why at for sure, right?

I talked to someone at Nintendo and apparently Bruiser and scratch, Evasive Space, Pitcrew Panic, and Planet pachinko are gone as well.
It was either Magic oblisk or Neves Plus (I think it might have MO) as far back as around April 2011.

edit: Wasn't someone on this site involved in the making of Planet Pichinko?

This is very bad! Downloadable games should always stay available on the download services! Well, maybe not the shovelware. But good games getting removed is very bad! The magic obelisk never hit Europe sadly, though I feel for the Americans that still wanted to download it.

It also makes me a bit worried about DSiware! I want to catch up with DSiware when I have a 3DS. I really hope that by that time some of the games I want aren't removed!!!

I think only the original poster can change the name of a thread. All the original poster has to do is go to the first post and hit edit and delete the old name in the subject box and put in the new title.

It's especially unsettling for european gamers since they aren't getting anything for the service :o
But even in america we're only getting one new wiiware game a week vs. five or six which are being removed :(

"I'm a little annoyed that we weren't warned that this could happen. Does this happen on xbox and psn?
The least they could have done was give us a headsup that these were to be taken off soon"

I agree. And I also wonder if this happens at Sony/Microsoft. After all I might pick up a PsVita in the future. Not only for PsVita games, but also to catch up with the downloadable Ps-one and Psp games!

And yes, this issue is worth a Nintendolife article! Because most people aren't aware that games on download-services doesn't stay forever (Well, not on Nintendo services apparently. I don't know how the situation is at Sony/Microsoft). It also proofs once again that cloud-storage is bad. If you buy a digital game, you should always download it to your device. That way they can't take it away from you!

Maybe the name of the topic should be changed yet again. This time it should be: Games that got removed from Nintendo download services. And maybe it's better suited for the "General discussion" section. Just a idea!
