Thomas I share your concerns, Nintendo could power down the service tomorrow, and never have to refund anything. Who knows how long they will support it?

Nothing lasts forever. I don't understand why people are upset that that reality counts for downloads too. - waltzelf

Because you do not own it. You cannot ever get a refund or trade it. You cannot do anything with it. You get a bad game, it is done, points gone. I buy a bad retail game I list it on EBAY the same day and get paid money for it when it sells.

That is a huge difference what am I missing?

i don't think you're missing anything, man. in terms of WiiWare and other digital downloadables, you pays your money and you takes your chances, really. i'm not really okay with it, but there's quite a few great games i wouldn't have ever been able to play had i not just gone with the flow on this one. i'm dreading the day when my Wii and DSi finally go kaput and i'm out hundreds of dollars in games i won't be able to transfer over to a new (or newly-bought used) system because Nintendo refuses to support the Wii anymore. :/

No, what customer service does is skim through the hundreds (if not thousands) of e-mails they receive daily in order to come up with an answer to all of them. From the way you explain what it was you asked, it sounds like they mixed up the terms 'firmware' and 'hardware' and replied to you thusly, that's all. I'm sure if you reply to that e-mail correcting that person politely, they'll respond with a canned answer about how they don't know about any firmware updates coming down the pipeline at this time. no ranting necessary. :/

@garicnebula: if you paid for it or had it gifted to you, you don't (or at least you shouldn't) have to pay for it again. seriously, call Nintendo's customer service hotline before paying more and see what they have to say.

if you've already purchased or have been gifted something, anytime you go back to check out that game you should be presented with two buttons -- one for 'download, 0 points' and the other for 'gift' at the game's full price. i believe there's also an option to just see things you've already downloaded that are re-downloadable (so you don't have to go searching for 'em). if you're saying you purchased the game and the wii shop is now telling you that you haven't, that sounds like something you'll need to call Ninty's customer service hotline about.

if you've bought something via the Wii Shop, you can re-download it as many times as you like for free.

that's... odd. GameStop is supposed to test the games/systems they receive as trade-ins before they put them up for sale, so i'd take it back and show them it won't work in your DS. they've got a 14-day guarantee on used games anyway, iirc; hope you saved your receipt that shows the date of sale. :3
