@Sneaker13: right, and i get what you're saying, but the title of this thread is 'you shouldn't have to pay for games you already have or had'... it gives the OP the flavor of 'they should give me these games for free since i already paid two decades ago', and that's what we're all reacting to. by the title of the thread, it's like he's saying that you shouldn't have to pay to re-buy your games on VC when your SNES (god forbid) finally kicks it, which, again, is false.

to be honest, Kid_A, i don't understand the mentality of preordering when there's going to be an abundance of copies of a game out everywhere, unless you're that hung up on the bonuses. A niche game, sure, because chances are you'll walk into GameStop and they'll just stare at you like you're a moron for asking about (insert game here), but something as big as Other M you'll be able to get everywhere (and probably a bit cheaper at Wal-Mart to boot if you're not into ordering things from the internet). it's not like canceling a pre-order means you'll never be able to buy the game ever, lol; he could very well change his mind once it's out and the general public has had their say about things. :3

@Sneaker13: by past re-releases, i meant retail versions. not all of us enjoyed the graphical upgrades some re-releases featured, and sometimes there were other drawbacks (like Super Mario Bros. Deluxe, with the smaller screen area naturally hampering your view and making you have to scroll around to see everything). yes, most of us either bought or were gifted all these classic games before, but that doesn't entitle us to be able to download them again for free just because we owned them on their original console.

i think the fact that games being re-released for newer systems is nothing new at retail kinda helps this topic to span more than just the VC... that's kinda the tangent i was leaning toward with my other replies. short answer: the statement is false.

@Sneaker13: with the VC, though, being able to play games just as they were played back on their original consoles (same slowdown issues, graphical quirks, etc. and so forth) was a selling point (though granted, i don't know much about the Hz thing people argue about here all the time, nor do i care). other games have seen improvements/graphics upgrades/whatever in past re-releases, though, and to be quite honest, i can't say that I re-buy old movies just for the making-of featurettes or better audio quality. i just re-buy them so that i can watch them again.

I suppose for me, its like if you want to listen to a song you own on cassette or record but now prefer to have it on CD. Or if you have a movie on VHS but would rather watch it on DVD.

this is also a good point. we've been re-buying things in newer formats/for newer technology since forever now, really. how is re-buying a video game any different?

if I want to play it on a current-gen console, i have no problems with re-purchasing it. if i want to play it on the original console, i have no problems with hauling the thing out and setting it up so that i can. they've been re-releasing older games on newer consoles forever now -- the Namco Museum and Super Mario Advance series-es say hello, y'know -- so it's not like there's no precedent or anything.

i do believe Nintendo has taken down games in the past that were glitchy -- didn't some WiiWare game get taken down for a while? idk what's up with Arkanoid Plus, though... the internets are not providing tonight. Perhaps a call to Nintendo's support hotline is in order?
