2 wicked games, Super Mario world was the first game I completed 100% and all the world and enemies change!!
I assume that's a mistake since half of £7.19 isn't £2.69

Also title could be misleading since its only half price if you buy a full price game

Got properly exited for this, then realised I have one of the last "old" 3DS's..

Wish there was a discount for those who own it on Wii U, or some kind of cross-buy.
Cold because the the amount I'd have to spend upgrading to a 'new' 3DS for no apparent reason offsets the deal considerably ;p

Yeah. Cant see why the "old" 3DS would have trouble running SNES games.
Disappointed owning as I do SMW (Wii U) via the Virtual Console I cant simply add it to my New 3DS for 'free', but, count me in for Earthbound, ALTTP, Super Metroid, F-Zero, SMK and (perhaps) at least one of the DK Country games...

For those who claim Nintendo's library is lacking in some department, I'm finding it tricky to keep up with everything in my (growing) library.

​It would play them just fine, but Nintendo have to incentivize upgrading to a new console. Even if that console is only slightly better than the last one.

It's getting people to buy the new console ...
I've bough some of these on the Wii, Wii U and now they expect me to buy them again on the New 3DS!!! Nintendo really need to sort out cross buying for their customers

They're not going to because they expect you to buy them again (and they expect people will).

You can also expect to see article online saying you shouldn't feel 'entitiled' to cross by despite the emulator being the only difference between the two versions.

Personally, one of the reasons I don't generally buy Nintendo DD is because of a lack of cross-buy (the other being their awful DRM), so if money is what they want, money isn't what they're going to get from me unless they're going dirt cheap like Super Metroid was when I first got my Wii U.

! Wow this passed me by totally. Gba games now please and for everyone! but I'm purchasing metroid regardless. Heat.
I'm not buying these again after getting them for My Wii U, the fact there is not crossbuy or even discount if you have the Wii U versions is a joke.

​Don't worry about me, I only spent £65 to get Super Mario World first time around, red box and everything.

​Nintendo said many years ago that GBA games are only for those who joined the Ambassador's Program (basically early adopters before the huge 3DS price cut), so glad I was able to transfer me GBA games from my original 3DS to my New 3DS.

​Not a mistake, Mario world is 2.69. The mistake is listing it as half price
At least on the Wii->Wii U transition they didn't charge you full price for the upgrade. But the lack of crossbuy is a real kick in the nads.

I didn't include cartridges in this they're exempt from cross buying for obvious reasons. I have SNES and MD games stacked to the ceiling as well as crates of loose cartridges. Christ knows how much I've spent on those over the years...I don't want to think about it...
Why can't you buy £5 credit? Restricted to minimum £10 deposit on store as well.

I assume, in this case, Nintendo realised that the order you bought them in would affect the final price (it would have been cheaper to buy SMW and get Earthbound half price than the other way round), so they lowered the offer price of SMW to make the two the same.
awesome

Just choose to pay the exact amount, unless they have removed that option?
I'm not buying these as I own most on original cart and have heard of something called emulation. Nintendo charge too much for their classics and with the lack of cross play, also lack of being able to download to other machines renders the whole thing a joke.

Nintendo need to really up their game in regards to their downloads.
Nintendo have been terrible to their customers for a while now.

Get CFW if you haven't already. At this point it's morally acceptable.

I believe it's that price so that it's the same for both (almost 1p difference) no matter which you buy first.
Wish they did what Apple/Google do with digital purchases ie tied to account and a purchase lets you have the 'tablet' (console) and phone (handheld) versions. Then I'd buy these without question
I don't get it, is earthbound £4.49? Or full price?..
Why have we not had a rom related comment yet?
Everyone interested in this sort of thing should check out retropie.
How do you know if you have a new or old 3DS?

I, well my son has a 3DSxl, are all xl "new" version?

It's full price (£8.99) but if you buy it you can get the other game (SMW) for half price.

If you buy SMW first, you can then get Earthbound for half price, but either way it adds up to the same price overall for both games.

There are four products in the 3DS line:

- 3DS and 3DSXL
- new 3DS and new 3DSXL

The easiest way to check is to look for coloured buttons - the new XL has coloured lettering on ABXY.

Genius from Nintendo, now you have to buy our 'new' console because its the only one that the 'old' games will run on!
I have a Link Between Worlds 3DS XL and a Wii U with multiple games for both systems, yet I still need to buy a slightly better 3DS to be eligible for this deal? Screw you Nintendo.

If you buy Super Mario World at full price then you get EarthBound at half price. Or if you buy EarthBound at full price then you get Super Mario World at half price. So if you buy one (doesn't matter which one), then you can get the other half price

The New 3DS is the one that has better 3D and the C stick near the X button. The picture below shows the difference. The one on the left is the New 3DS and the one on the right is the original one. So if your sons looks like the one on the right (only bigger screen) then it would be the original one

sure I know about the ambassador program. Times change and hopefully minty will bend a little at some point. Stupid not to as I would think there are a lot more people offering money to buy gba games on the 3ds than there are ambassadors who might be upset after 4 years of elitism.
