@jdarrell: you may as well say that not keeping track of high scores in SMB makes sense because if you choose to stomp on a series of enemies individually as you go rather than chasing a launched koopa shell down the line (for the doubled-as-you-go and eventual 1-up bonus), the points you gain come at the expense of the points you didn't gain by doing it the other way. no offense, but how does that make sense?

@Q&B: i'm pretty disappointed in the lack of high-score saving as well. i get that it's artsy and stuff, it's really about life and stuff happening to you as a person and all that, but it still seems like a glaring oversight to not give me the opportunity to do better next time IMO. He's already quantifying our choices in his games by assigning point values to them in the first place, may as well give us an easy way to keep track of how well we've managed to do according to his standards.

This came up earlier. It was actually a dev unit, meaning it'll do whoever stole it no good.

NL reported on this statement back in August, though Nintendo is naturally repeating the warning now right before the hands-on events start. Feel free to add your thoughts here :3

@SSBFan1999/Limelight 788: Nintendo did try to get CDs going for the SNES, but we all know how that turned out.

also, if Blu-Ray can hold up to 25GB, sure (idk, haven't researched it myself), but when you look at an SD card holding up to 32GB with lower loading times and no worrying about a drive wearing out or not being able to read it or anything, you start to see how maybe cartridges could be a possibility.

i don't really care either way, myself. i've got a Wii and i've got a DS, and i can keep track of both sets of games just fine. :3

honestly, i've gotten a lot more use out of my DS/i than my Wii. I do love the Wii too, but the DS/i has a great library of games available, and there's something about being tethered to a television that i've always hated to be honest. portable gaming ftw :3

@HeroOfTime007: yeah, that was the 'street vendor' prices -- N64 games were pretty expensive at retail, easily in the $60-70 range depending on the game. SNES games were about as bad IIRC, and same for NES games -- especially when inflation is taken into account.

It's probably because of where you are in the world. What country do you have your Wii set to? Try setting it to a nearby country with known-provided WC24/Shop service and see if it starts working.
