naah, i could see them trying to battle the overload by giving it more power to the point where it decided that humans were a disgusting race of liars and therefore the Earth should be cleansed of their hideously untruthful ways through mass genocide. that would be pretty awesome :3

@weegee: probably because they both have five letters, start with A, and end with S. to be honest, though, I'm kinda in your boat — i'm not a fan of dungeon-crawlers at all, SRPGs are generally too tedious Ispending an hour+ on one battle and still losing in the end... just doesn't make me want to continue tbqh), and they make up quite a bit of their library of games. Also wasn't a very big fan of Contact (I liked the pop culture it incorporated, but the game kinda bored me, especially toward the end). Radiant Historia freakin' blew my mind, though :3

Ecto-1 is correct — original DS games only support WEP connections and will not work with WPA or stronger. DSi and 3DS games support a wider range of security settings. that's why Jfilesguy can use his DSiWare titles online but not find his AC:WW FC (the game doesn't recognize his connection), and that's why the 3DS gives you that option, Tendoboy.

@zez: it's closer than VG/KT/MM are to NL, yes, but it's not an exact mirror duplicate. I'm still kinda iffy on it myself, but i'm sure I'll get used to it in time. Either way, i'd appreciate it if you didn't attempt to belittle his opinion with the 'well you're just a Nintendo fanboy, no wonder you don't think it's a 10/10 design' excuse, please and thank you.

By not ready I thought they meant that ISPs are too locked down and moat people only have the basic Internet plans which are too slow for downloading mass amounts of data. Also on the phone side you aren't even allowed to download big files over 3G because of the time it takes. Unless your running fios or tootle Tiber your sol.

there are multiple reasons behind it, and of course access to internet (whether via wi-fi or 3G plan) is going to be an obstacle too, but yeah — IMO the average person is not yet ready to take that step into a fully download-only gaming culture. we walk into a game store/poke around Amazon and eBay and expect to see physical copies of games available for play on our brand new consoles, not to be told that most of the playable games (for now) are only available for download over the internet. we're slowly making the transition (tech-savvy and gamers perhaps quicker than most?), but we're not fully there just yet.

@Tendoboy: You're missing my point due to your natural inclination to run threads down tangents. The Go flopping spectacularly was a prime example of the fact that John Q. Public is not ready to rely on a downloadable service for all of their gaming needs just yet. At the moment, the App Store is doing nothing but reinforce the idea that downloadable games are merely cheap diversions meant to be played while waiting in doctors' offices, airports, on the can, or in between solid, meaty retail releases gamers gladly throw their money at devs to get their grubby hands on. Retail sales have shrunk, yes, but the retail gaming store is not dead in the water just yet.

My original point was that the lack of playable retail games at retail for Vita (due to the lack of backwards-compatibility) stands a good chance of making initial Vita sales quite sluggish. At launch, people were able to walk into a store, see that the 3DS could play not only the handful of launch titles but allll those lovely available DS games as well — sure, the eShop wouldn't be around for a bit, but who cared? We'd be all right in the meantime until the 3DS titles we wanted started rolling in, right? As for the Vita, it'll have a few retail titles available and then the clerks'll have to talk pretty fast about social network connectivity and the SEN, at which point... y'know, your phone can download games too, and most downloadable games are like Angry Birds, just bite-sized little things, aren't they? And they're probably cheaper in the App Store anyway, so who cares? What do you need a Vita for just yet? that's the hurdle at the moment.

iOS devices and Android say hi.

the difference you've apparently missed (so what else is new) is that people have those devices as phones first, gaming devices second. you need a phone. you don't need a Vita.
