Click on the link and find out where it is



Lol, yeah I know, just a friendly reminder to the OP to put the store in the title!

Good spot. Have ordered 2 lots for myself.

Good deal! Thanks

Bargain

Great price but please be aware that when you download to a DS or DSi you cannot transfer when you change your DS. I lost about £50 worth of stuff on my sons DS when he upgraded. Not sure what the situation is with the Wii would imagine that is fine but not sure. For that reason alone I never buy these now but this is a good deal if its what you want.

No, the Wii is the same. Purchases are tied to your console not your account and so are not transferable. Nintendo love money.

Are you serious? there's **** loads to download, some great WiiWare games plus loads of NES/SNES/N64..........Zelda games, Mario rpg games, Mario platform games, Mario Kart etc.

I have saved mine to my sd card in my wii.
I presumed if i took my sd card out and put it in my brothers wii, the game would work on his too

Nope.

I only use these points on my Dsi XL as i know im not gonna need to upgrade for some time as the screens are bigger than anything due out for many years, and for me Handheld gaming bigger screens makes all of the difference.

I was tempted but after reading the posts im not too impressed, I've already spent £40+ on games, and I cant transfer them if my console breaks and I get a new one? NOT GOOD!

Thanks OP. Great price. Just ordered one. Have some heat!

hot thanks

What a rip off by Nintendo!!! You are right, I have looked into it, and downloads are linked to the specific machine. So even if it's replaced by Nintendo as faulty, you lose all your software.

What a con! I will never buy any more Nintendo download software again.

Good price, thanks have some heat.

Nope.



Why???? Its not saved to the console

EXACTLY you obviously know what your talking about because anyone with any gaming history behind them would know that the service provides the Biggest amount of quality compared to any of the consoles, and yes i do have all 3 consoles.

Anyone "with any gaming history" has already played most of the SNES, N64 (and possibly NES and other 16 bit console) titles before - or has them on carts.

I stand by my criticism of the Nintendo online store being poor. The XBox Live service probably has the most choise, followed by the PSN store.

I say that as a huge fan of most of most first party Nintendo titles (particularly Zelda, Metroid, Mario generally, F Zero, Pilot Wings, SNES Star Wing - the list is endless).

Anyway, the biggest flaw of all is that you lose your downloads when your Wii (or DSi) console dies.

Except that Nintendo hardware never dies!

If you send your console (DS\Wii) in for repair you do not loose your downloaded games, or the ability to redownload them
