i dunno if it's true where you're at, but you can't find 1000 point cards around here, which is the denomination of points i usually like to purchase (no sense buying too much when i don't need it, and it's not like i'm getting some kind of discount for buying in bulk or anything). therefore, i usually just buy via the Wii/DSi Shop.

@LinktotheFuture: you want to make absolutely sure the SD card's data has been corrupted before reformatting. Sometimes just ejecting and re-inserting the card can make the computer recognize it again, or trying it in a different computer or card reader may make the data suddenly readable as well.

that said, yes, reformatting will make your SD card useable again should it really be corrupted. :3

The only thing Nintendo is out is the tiny bit of band width it takes to host and deliver the game but until it sells enough, the developers don't see a dime. Why even mess with trying to put your game out there on their service? This is just the same thing they did to third parties back in the NES days for the new generation.

poor, poor innocent developers, never had a clue what Nintendo was going to do to them, never had any idea they wouldn't get paid until their games sold a certain amount of downloads, boo-hoo... oh, wait, no, they had to have signed a contract. seriously, if they were told up-front how the payment system was going to work, it sucks, but them's the breaks. it's like gambling or any other kind of risk -- you pays your money and you takes your chances.

Nintendo's not stealing if the developers agreed to their terms before release

The developers absolutely had to have agreed to these things before release; there's no way Ninty wouldn't have had them sign a contract on it before any money for a development kit changed hands. With WiiWare/DSiWare, companies were fighting for the chance to develop for it if i remember correctly, and surely if they didn't like the terms, they were free to develop for other consoles/services instead. WiiWare sounds like something that's going to pay off over time -- no instant gratification for developers -- so if a game still isn't profitable after a couple of years, it's time for the developers to look at whatever feedback they received on their game, professional and unprofessional alike, and figure out where they went wrong.

how do we even know what the 'full price' of Wii Play would've been anyway? for all we know it would've been $10, for all the work it seems it took for them to slap together a few lame minigame/tech demos.

either way, Wii Play is a glorified demo disc IMO. it's all right to mess around with when you first get your wii, but after that first fifteen minutes most people move on. 's cool that it's got its fans, i guess. :3

People want virtual console releases on the Wii, too, but I don't see anyone suggesting they hang on to their N64s in preference to the Wii.

that analogy would make sense if the DSi was actually a next-gen handheld, which it is not. it's more a tangent to the current generation of handhelds; it's a little more powerful, and it's got a different focus (downloadable games vs. backwards compatibility), but without the must-have DSi-only games backing it up, it's still not fundamentally better (yet).

that said, i wouldn't buy a brand new Lite myself, but that's only because used ones are now plentiful and much cheaper :3

@WaltzElf: do you not hear the people clamoring for a Virtual Handheld service? with the phat/lite, you've got no need for it (unless you're waiting for GB/C games, lol). you may not be playing any of your GBA games at the moment, but it's still a valid concern for someone else who may play games in their collection more regularly than you.

and another thing -- you like puzzle games, but not everyone else does. it's still a valid concern too IMO.

@WaltzElf: the point is that though both the phat/lite and DSi can play DS games, the phat/lite have access to almost the entire existing GBA library (it's not hard to find GBA games used in dedicated game stores or online) whereas the DSi only has DSiWare and maybe one or two DSi-only games so far, neither of which are omg-must-play titles. DSiWare is nice, but so far there's no omg-must-play titles on the service either. Until we start getting DSi-only releases for serious and start seeing more variety hit the DSi Shop, i wouldn't recommend a DSi to anyone but a fan of larger screens, puzzle games, and/or sound/picture applications.

the library is only 'huge' if you're a fan of puzzle games and messing around with applications. the GBA still has a much larger library with far more variety at the moment.
