@Priceless_Spork Read their privacy policy, fin out what country the business is headquartered in and look up the privacy laws of that nation. If it's an Australian organisation and they have a good privacy policy, then they can't seel your details without your express permission. I don't know aout other countries though.

@MarceloKamui This single hour had many millions of people trying to play, and they still got it working. On release, there will be less than a million. So the teething problems are all gone now, it should be smooth in release, when everybody can instead play 24/7 instead of just one hour.

Luckily when it's released there will be less players and games will be 24/7 and not just a one hour window for every Wii U owner.
It coped with the millions in the 2nd hour quite well, so it should be able to cope with launch day just as well, and they may get some more servers up for launch week.

Because it was extended for an hour I got to play the whole time as it finished at 9:30 am.
It went much better than the first 3 sessions by the time I logged on, even on my slow degraded copper.
I can't wait until release!

MadAdam81 commented on Nintendo Download: 21st May (North America):

@Windy the "taking a picture and sending it to someone on a friends list" was so badly abused. People share IDs with strangers in an online facebook page, and then would receive an R rated picture that they didn't want, and there were kids getting them. It's either Nintendo sacrifice swapnote or cross their fingers and hope nothing worse happens and hope that no tabloid gutter press gets ahold of it and makes basically every parent refuse to buy one.

I'm getting the shakes, I knew I was going to be hooked on reveal and the second testfire began I was heavily addicted.
I don't care about the wwater pistol, as even when summer gets here in Australia I will still be inside playing Splatoon.

10% discount is for Australia as well. I will give the second round a go if it falls in a decent AU time, and I will compare the digital iscounted price to the retail disc price, and I may be tempted to cancel my disc preorder for the digital version, but I will definitely keep my Splatoon Amiibo triple pack pre-order,

@97alexk Not sure how region locking makes them more money, it stops imports and therefore reuces sales, but it also means you can't buy grey market SE Asia games either. I don't think that's much of a problem nowadays though, so hopefully it means Nintendo don't have a reason to region lock anymore.

I like how Europe & AU/NZ get 10% of the digital game if they have the demo - I am tempted to see if it will be cheaper than the disc, because this will be my most played game ever, and I like the idea of not having to chage discs when Lego Jurassic Park and Yoshis WW comes out.
