Depends whether you want to pay an extra £6.86.

If you lose your 3ds, it gets stolen etc do you lose the game forever?

Yes or if it breaks, I hate Nintendo digital copies.

Thats what I thought, for this reason it's cold from me. At about £7.50 it would be hot for a game you can't sell and can actually lose. I think they sorted things out on the wii u though so digital games for that are okay

I believe you can recover your game but you need to contact Nintendo and you will need the serial number I think.

what about in my case where I sold my 3ds in preparation for the new 3ds? I only had 2 digital games on it and wasn't too bothered but vowed not to buy nintendo 3ds digital stuff again. (I didn't realise I couldn't just sign into the new one and download my stuff like you can on every other gaming device)

I wish all the games were linked to the account and not the device but that's just how Nintendo like to do things. Still a good price for a fun game, heat added

Not sure in this case but your 3DS wasn't lost,stolen or broken. I guess you could claim that it was lost if you have the serial number but I don't know how that would affect the new owner. To say you can't recover your games in the scenario you gave to begin with though isn't strictly true.

Nintendo's digital policy is crap, it is why I haven't sold my 3DS yet, I don't know why they don't just tie stuff to accounts like the others.
Edited by: "SVRich" 1st Feb 2015

Just make sure you have the serial number and club nintendo login and you'll be about to recover you ganes if the 3ds is lost or stolen.
You can even recover you games from a sold 3ds, just a bit of a faff having to phone nintendo but it is possible.

So these games are a one shot buy? I pre-ordered a 3DS and was hoping it would be just like Vita? Can the system backed up??

What happens to the user of your sold 3DS if you advise Nintendo it was lost?

They probably don't want to force the user to go online while they play a digital game otherwise the user could share their account details with a mate and they could play the same game simultaneously.

Even if they did force the console online they also want to prevent people sharing games by taking turns ie logging in and playing the game and then logging out.

It is possible to borrow a physical game from a mate as only one person could play it at a time and in Nintendo's view this should not be possible with digital games as you're choosing the convenience of being able to access the game at all times over the option of a physical game.

The 2 games will be gone from new owners 3DS, I believe.

Unless the new owner never created a new Nintendo ID and the old owner had never removed their Nintendo ID details they wouldn't have been able to access the games anyway.

If the console is reported as being stolen by the old owner then Nintendo may impose blocks on the console when it next goes online.

If I had my console stolen then I would definitely want Nintendo to lock the console and prevent the thief from using it!

What if I were to buy the new 3DS? How could I download all the games I've bought digitally?

Ordered a New 3DS and trying to build up the back catalogue. Thanks OP.

Just need a decent Zelda deal now.

They wouldn't need to force you online they could just make you do a one time licence transfer much like you can do on the 360 etc. after all you can transfer all your purchases to a new console if you have both consoles. In my opinion there is no excuse to have such a backwards digital policy when every other digital distribution service allows you to transfer purchases to a new device, I lost all my ambassador games because of it.

I was thinking more about would the console be blocked from the eStore as I don't want to eBay it then have an angry buyer.

I don't what happens to the old 3ds but you can certainly transfer your games without having the serial number as I did that when using got the new 3DS ambassador edition. Just called them and had to answer simple questions from my account and wait a few days. Worked for my Wii U as well.

I think only if you use Nintendo network ID.

Anyone got the current code wont show on tablet xx

That is correct. I was informed via email that my consoles had been reset. When I linked my ID to my new consoles, all my old games were available from the previous download list on the eShop.

Also to clarify, one of the questions I was asked for was the serial numbers of my previous consoles. I just responded that I didn't know the serial numbers and that was it.

Nintendo's digital policy IS a joke.. However there was a very interesting article on Kotaku the other day explaining why. They're a Kyoto-based company who are rigid even by Japanese standards, and anyone can veto anything new just by saying no.

I found the link.

I figured as much - it's still a big step from the previous situation where your downloads were irrevocably lost. And this was new info I didn't know - previously, I knew you could always get Nintendo to restore your account from a lost or stolen item via a police report and/or a serial number. It appears, that Tireeq had a relatively simple and painfree experience.

To be fair, Nintendo has publicly said they're trying to change things and that NNIDs were a step towards that change. They've acknowleged that their current system DRM is not up to market expectations.

I'll just throw my experience in this thread in case it helps.

Digital downloads are saved to your NNID account just like any other service like PSN, LIVE or Steam.

Where Nintendo differs is that they have an archaic 'linking' system which binds your account to a console. This is where people have trouble and lose games usually.

To use your account on another console you need the old console's serial number and then call Nintendo who will unlink it remotely. Talking with them myself the process can take 7-14 days because only one person in the office has access to the system and has to do them manually one by one.

Once your account is unlinked, you can link it to a new console by logging in and then download all your games from your account history.

I noticed someone here said they didn't need the old serial, I personally can't confirm this and was specifically asked for it during the process.

I can confirm through experience you do not need the old serial number, and yes it can take weeks for Nintendo to unlink the old console!

Cool it is easier than I though, unfortunately my ambassador game were from the original 3DS and it was sold before NNIDs existed. I am still curious what would happen to the sold 3DS if I did this because I would like to sell my Zelda XL before the new one but I don't want to lose A link Between Worlds or have an angry buyer.

if your 3DS gets lost or stolen with a physical cartridge in you'll also lose the game forever

Nintendo digital games really are a con. On every other device you either have a physical copy you can physically insert to your new device or a digital copy you can re-download. This nonsense of tying games down to machines is backwards and anti-consumer.

Con is a bit strong and suggests they're doing it on purpose. They're just really behind with the times and it's not impossible to transfer content, just harder.

Great price, and I was tempted.. but is there really much to want this for if I've already got Mario Kart DS and mostly use my 3DS to play singleplayer?

How do you get the code once you liked them?

Out of stock now
