Pokemon Silver Version is making its way to Virtual Console on Nintendo 3DS! This game, which debuted as a Game Boy Colour title in Japan, is being recreated into a Virtual Console version such that the screen appears just as it did on the Game Boy Colour. This game box includes a download code for Pokemon Gold Version (no game disc is included). The game must be downloaded from Nintendo e-Shop using the download code enclosed.

I did think that but saw "Delivery at no extra cost for Prime members".


Are you sure. ARE YOU SURE?
Alternative if you don't have prime is they're £9.99 each at GAME, which is what I've gone for! Heat

Wonder if it's just the game code or if we'll get snazzy extras like the Japan versions did..

Yes.
I don't know anything about these games. Are they similar to the red, yellow and blue that were (or still are?) £6 on the eshop recently?

Nice so is this a new game? Do they just email a code to you so no box to open on my nephews birthday ? Do you need an sdcard on the 3ds?

Pokemon Gold and Silver are the 2nd generation of Pokemon games developed for the Gameboy Colour. They feature full colour [unlike the original games] and lots of new gameplay elements including a real day and night cycle, pokemon eggs, and as well as the new map it also has the map from the original games once you complete the new one

So if I buy yellow for example, it's not even in colour??

No. No. Yes
These are 'Virtual Console' games of Gameboy Colour games. They come as a physical box containing a download code to download on 3DS family systems. All 3DS family systems come with a MicroSD card already in them, and as these are Gameboy Colour games they'll be a small download size

The original games are Gameboy games which have some added colour when played on GBC, but not full colour. Yellow has even more colour when played on GBC as it was made with this in mind, but still not proper full colour.
The Virtual Console versions are as follows:
Red & Blue have no colour, just like originally on the GB.
Yellow has the added GBC colour.

Yes.

So really digital only should be cheaper cause the companies are losing money shipping a box with a code in
Tbh I think £9 for a retro game is a rip off but whatever floats your boat.

Cool, now what does that have to do with anything apart from showing that you wanted to be a stalker in order to "win" a point? I agree that £130 is a rip off for a keyboard, but I posted the deal since I was looking at mechanical keyboards at the time and that was the cheapest I could find that particular one (which I went for at the time). I'm not trying to tell people what they can or can't buy, I'm just giving feedback on my opinion towards a deal. If it were a physical copy I'd be more inclined, but when I can get more recent games for around this price, I think retro gaming would do better if it were more suitably priced. Otherwise I'd rather emulate it or just grab my copy of gold, silver or crystal I have laying around, though the battery probably need replacing in the cart :c. If you thinking otherwise then fine, but no need for petty stalking.

Though on the plus side, this will probably become pokemon bank compatible.

This is the cheapest legal way to play this game.
You would pay more than this to buy the original version.
I would prefer a physical cartridge than a download code.

A brief look on ebay seems to suggest that doesn't seem to be the case:
[Edit: nvm removed :D]
They do both say opened but unused, whether you believe it is up to you.


Though as stated, you may need a replacement battery and of course a console capable of playing GBC games. Personally I'd rather go for the convenience of emulation, especially since eshop games are tied to the console. I'm aware there will be happy customers and that's fine, I'm of the opinion that these things should be cheaper, at least from the e-shop. I think there can be big improvements to nintendo's online distribution.

Though even if the older carts did cost more, I still wouldn't personally consider it a deal since I would compare it's price to quality games a few years back at the same price point or retro style games/original games elsewhere for a fraction of the price.

Not sure there's much room for legality in the listing bud.

I have to admit I've only just started collecting old GBA and GB games and soon learnt how much fake stuff is out there, not that I should have been surprised

My bad, I didn't check it out thoroughly and have only read about more obvious fakes. I still stand by the rest of my post though. I guess it goes to show how untrustworthy listings can be despite positive feedback.

I bought Super Mario World GBA years ago and came fake, easy to tell with the colour of the label but really good fakes!!
I collected the whole collection of pokemon games and the game boy ones are really not easy to tell apart between genuine and fake on a listing.

One I even thought was genuine with my own eyes (GBA Sapphire) until I cracked open the case to check the codes on the chipboard and quickly realised it was a very good fake.

Glad to be able to resist for once on a pokemon deal as I already own both, phew!
Expired?
