@kaiserbirdo: duct-tape solves everything... just watch out for random half-bird freaks >:3

in all honesty, though, losing your system after the unified accounts thing goes through would still be a crappy situation... you'd have to replace your system if you wanted your account to be usable again, after all :(

@tat2: by the time i realized it was gone, i was already home. i didn't know what to do or who to ask — wal-mart has signs up saying they can't take responsibility for what goes on in the parking lot, lock your vehicles, etc. etc., and the deductible on my insurance is $500 or so. they'd make me shell out for it myself anyway if i reported it, and I didn't have the money to buy another. in all honesty i felt so stupid for having had it happen in the first place that I was honestly prepared to just go on without one until some very good friends of mine pitched in to buy me a replacement.

thank you ever so much for telling me everything i should've done, though — i'm so glad you have all the answers. I only hope if something like that ever happens to you that you're able to navigate the situation as efficiently as you've explained to me, because the world is totally a perfect place and things always work out that way.

i'm going to ask you now to stop being a jerk to me personally about it — Nintendo has been offering account transfers in terms of theft ever since the DSi hit. My situation is nothing new. this will be the only time I ask.

@GuardianKing: basically, they're asking for you to prove that the console was indeed stolen before they'll transfer everything over to you. when i finally got a replacement for my original 3DS I did call and ask about it, and they said they'd be willing to transfer my account and stuff (including my Ambassador status, the few DSiWare titles i'd transferred over, friend code, etc.) but first i'd need to fax them over a copy of the police report... but since i didn't file one, i was SOL. i don't remember asking if i'd have to send it in or if they could do it remotely, though.

you don't technically "own" a physical copy either. You are not free to do as you please with a physical copy, so aside from a piece of plastic with electronics inside there's no difference between physical and digital copies.

the problem with this argument isn't really about 'ownership' of gaming code (which you are correct about; you don't purchase ownership of game code when you purchase a physical copy of a game) but about the things that traditionally go along with ownership of a physical item. with digital games, you're entirely at the mercy of the game companies allowing you to play your old games on your new console(s), or on a used console you just picked up — there's account transfers, whether or not they'll support your old system(s), and number-of-download limits to be considered, all of which can get bungled quite easily in this day and age. With a physical copy, your only potential problem is losing the disc or cartridge; you can set it aside and sell off the console it's for, pick up an old console on eBay ten years later, and fire it up like you just bought the game yesterday with no worries.

in short, the argument of physical versus digital is about longevity and ease of use between consoles. for some, $30 to play a title and not be assured of being able to play it ten years later without paying again is too much, and it's their decision to make. who knows, it could go on sale later on, they could get it with an eShop card they were given as a gift, or they could change their mind about it later and purchase it on their own, y'know? it's not worth arguing to the death over, so if we could all chill out in here, that'd be super. thanks in advance :3

I just wanted to ask what is the extent of this.

Some view that (best example possible) threads going into iOS discussion is deviating far away from the topic that is at the top of the page. If the topic has flowed that way do you just let the discussion carry on or does someone step in

sorry, i didn't see this when you posted it, apparently — it depends on the situation. did someone bust into the 3DS Friend Codes thread with a rant about their day at school and how their teacher assigned too much homework, or did that same person decide to share their PSN/XBLA user information as well as their 3DS FC and a few other users joined in to share their other-console info? or in another case, has a topic derailed into yet another tail-chasing argument between rabid fans from both sides of the tangent, or is it a mature discussion between individuals who are honestly listening to each other and countering one another's points like rational human beings?

in short, each situation is different, and that particular rule gives us just enough leeway to cover not only users with nothing better to rebut an argument with 'go away troll', but also useless 'first comment' replies, users flooding articles with silly statements for the lulz (it happens, especially now with the live-comment system), people with nothing better to do but advertise other websites or products in our article and forum threads, and other useless BS.. To be honest, until a thread is reported (thus letting me know that someone's having a problem), I'm more likely to let tangents slide as long as they've had something to do with the natural flow of the discussion.

the question would be 'is it DSi-enhanced'? if it is, it's gonna be region-locked if you're playing it on a DSi or 3DS, but not on a Phat or Lite. If it's not DSi-enhanced, though, it'll be playable on any region DS, DSi, or 3DS.
