If I try to add funds, it says something like "The funds could not be added to your wallet." If I try to Buy Now, it gives me an error code. I've tried multiple credit cards, all of which work fine anywhere else.

i'm pretty sure lz was telling me he had the same problem — he's had problems adding funds via card to his PS3 account, and he'd tried more than one card as well iirc. perhaps it's worth contacting Sony to see if there's something they can do to help?

Shantae and Cave Story aren't made by Nintendo. Art Academy is.

and you think Nintendo isn't getting a cut of those sales? if so, i guarantee you are mistaken, sir :3

Hardy83 wrote:

I could be wrong, but if we see an Art Academy 3D then I'm right.

why would that automatically make you right? i wouldn't be surprised if they had another Art Academy title for 3DS in production for quite a while now. for all we know it could be some kind of internal issue with how it handles on the 3DS, and why bother recoding the game entirely if they've got another version up their sleeves?

there's also plenty more Nintendo-published things that aren't on that list, like the clocks/calculators, and perhaps most importantly Aura-Aura Climber. if they were really going the greed route, they'd'a kept all of their offerings from being transferable, not just these few.

Hardy83 wrote:

I doubt it would be a licensing issue since these games have been already rated in their appropriate regions.

that's not the licensing i'm talking about — i meant stuff like Domo in particular where maybe the devs/publishers paid for the rights to release a game based on that character specifically on the DSi (without taking into account that it may be possible to sell the game on another console), and the games perhaps sold so poorly that it wasn't worth pushing for the rights to release it on the 3DS as well? idk, it was just something to consider :3

I'm not impressed about Nintendo's own laziness and possible greed.

if Nintendo were playing the greed card, they'd've made damn sure none of the Art Style titles would've been transferable, as well as stuff like Shantae and Cave Story. there's gotta be something else going on with those particular titles, whether it's licensing issues, something that's up with the publisher(s) in question, or the games just won't play right on the 3DS for some reason.

mariofanatic128 wrote:

Does this mean you they won't be on the eshop as well or you just can't transfer them?

that's a good question. if it turns out the titles aren't available at all for 3DS, the kinda random-ish nature of these untransferable games would make a lot more sense :3

When the forums are finally upgraded, we'll finally have the ability to merge threads. Until then, locking and redirecting is our only option in terms of keeping discussions together on the forums as opposed to splintered across seventeen or thirty-five different threads. It's nothing personal when a thread is locked as a duplicate, I promise. :3

@soccer686: i don't really think they've said yet whether we'll be able to choose a color palette (like with a Super Game Boy or GBC) or not, have they? i'd think they'd put that functionality in there (but then it wouldn't be the first time i'd ever thought wrong, haha)...

I'd be ok with a scaled game with or without the blur filter. It's still better than playing on a backlightless regular GB! Hopefully they'll let people choose the resolution they want, like with DS games or GB games on a GBA.

this. hooray for no more eye strain and/or fiddling with my old Cobra attachment for light, lol :3
