I got Whomp 'Em, when it was a $3 game nobody heard of (the best time to buy!). When did that change?

Where's mah Hotel Mario?! It better not be a cent under $799 when it finally releases on the Virtual Console, or I'll be pissed that I won't be able to give more of my hard earned cash to the sexy company known as Nintendo, now run by the glorious ogo79.

This thread gave me a good laugh somebody trying to encourage insane pricing for VC games because the physical version is rare and expensive... a VC has to be cheap due to pc emulators otherwise nobody would pay for VC games,

I have nothing to add here that hasn't been said in the past 16 pages. Just please grasp the concept of owning an original physical copy of something vs owning a digital download.

It's only rare because they're not producing anymore physical copies. You own a physical copy, so the amount and value of said physical copy will always increase.

@ogo79: I think Nintendo got the wrong about the "rare" downloads with the releasing of the Rare Donkey Kong Country games!

I wonder how much ET would be worth on VC

ET isn't even a hard game to find, prior to the documentary you could easily get a copy for 3$ online.

Since The Binding Of Isaac is already old as heck it should definitely qualify as a Rare Download.
666 bucks should be worth it to anybody eternally begging for this game now.

Nintendo put the NES Adventures of Lolo on 3DS over the Game Boy game. Nintendo is now actively opposing rare downloads.

What do you got against British 3DS owners compared to their counterparts in the rest of Europe and Japan?
(I'm confused... did NintendoLife ACTUALLY enter those prices on their page? )

Well, then it's a good thing I already have both reasonable price copies of the game. (the Famicom and the GBA. Though unlike the GBA, the 3DS will certainly have the full resolution graphics)

Next rare download coming up...Metroid Prime Trilogy!

If Nintendo was smart, they wouldn't charge anything less than a hundred bucks for this.

Way to revive a dead thread lol

I think Xenoblade downloads should be Gamestop exclusive. That way they can sell them used and somehow get around a non-existent rule that new games have to be a certain price.

if they charge more for rare downloads then they should charge less for common downloads.

Edgey, Gumshoe, Godot, Sissel, Larry, then Mia, Franziska, Maggie, Kay and Lynne.

I'm throwing my money at the screen but nothing happens!
