So you spent tons of money on getting a rare piece of software and now that everyone can download it cheap you are mad?

How can anyone WANT a game to be expansive? Having an original cartride doesn't make you special.
Everyone should be able to enjoy great games. Stop being selfish!

expansive? thats exactly what my rare downloads program is all about. the rare titles get expanded to an audience that otherwise doesnt own the cart. if you meant expensive well thats not my problem. im expanding the expensive.

id never try to cartride my copy of little samson. now im not a heavy set guy myself but i can imagine if i tried to ride the cart it would probably crack and break. cartriding should be banned.

The thread that keeps on giving.

Nintendo should REALLY get Famicom Battletoads up on VC.
It's like... double rare.

So I guess Nintendo is still charging normal price for digital Ocarina of Time 3D?

Look at ebay sales and you can see. It seems to be January 14 was the day the price shot up. Because of some rumor Nintendo was pulling production on the game. I don't know if it's completely final (though the release of Majora's Mask could perhaps create more interest in the first game for those who hadn't already bought the game in the nearly four years it's been out) but I do know they stopped it at least once before. I can only guess maybe Nintendo thought they had enough supply out in retail (Nintendo is definitely a company that doesn't want to E.T. their products ), and they probably would if not for the ebay vultures. And I think that sort of artificial price inflation is sick.
Oddly enough it probably comes back to encouraging more digital sales (a win for Nintendo ).

I can't wait for Ninty on smart devices. With all these rare $1000+ microtransactions @ogo79's pile o' money will finally be so huge nobody will have any other chance than to swim in it too.

With Iwata announcing amiibos will unlock VC demos, and the announcement of a Lucas amiibo...
yay maybe they'll give us Mother 3, or at least three minutes of it anyways.

RDP was going to give us full games, was it?

yes that is correct. the demos will be half full game price.

Bleep

I think that there should be a virtual Amiibo program too, to compliment this. Each one could be $20 each (to balance the prices of all of them out, especially with the rare ones obviously). With these virtual Amiibos, you'd be able to separate the amateur collectors from the real ones.

And with these virtual Amiibos, you'd need some virtual shelves. Head over to Ikea-tendo™ to buy some virtual shelves, all of which would reflect their actual prices (of course).

DS games will cost £8.99 here. Thats charging more for rare downloads in my book. Even if some games are worth more, there are many that will be worth far less.

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

I heard last week Nintendo felt too many people got to play free EarthBound.
(aka Club Nintendo "sell out")

This makes no sense to me, i enjoy collecting and having the cartridges/boxes and manuals. I have to pay more for this as they are no longer in print. The VC is a way for people who'll never find or pay the price required for the original cartridges(or even have room), the VC allows them to enjoy old classics.
I will probably never get earthbound, so when i had the chance to try it on the wii u i did.

If have chance take a look at my youtube channel, mainly nintendo console focused

]I'd rather play with games than with boxes. Games are more fun. I enjoy collecting digital games and filling up my folders on Wii U and 3DS. I like digital manuals for the GBA, DS and N64 games which are scans of the originals.

Seriously only the hard copy Is rare not the download where there are infinite copies available vc games are a little over priced as it is. If you choose to pay more to have the hard copy to play on the original console then thats your choice but people should not have to pay extra to download it just because the cart is rare. Next you will be saying that critical acclaimed vc games should be more expensive than poorer ones nintendo is right to price them by console era.

Wasn't there a quote even in this thread Nintendo themselves said they could charge more for something like Super Mario Bros. 3 than like Urban Champion? But they didn't want to "hold gamers' nostalgia hostage."
Still on the 3DS VC, while the NES games are consistent, Game Boy and Game Gear games actually are priced individually.
Buying one of the acclaimed Mario or Sonic games is gonna run you a couple dollars more than like TumblePop or Dragon Crystal.

ogo, you've left out PSN as another avenue for the RDP.
Last year Suikoden II and just last week, Misadventures of Tron Bonne.

I would say contact Microsoft but I don't know of anything on Xbox consoles suitable except for Metal Wolf Chaos.
