    PC Gaming Space =/ Console gaming. Besides that, there are slight differences here.

    3DS is going to be pretty much exactly like PSP where stores offer digital downloads on either cards, or just digital codes if they're an online retailer. The library of 3DS games on eShop will likewise only be a bit less limited than the PSP's, as licensing contracts for many titles likely were struck well before this. With Vita every game that's available physicially is also available on PSN the same day, much like Wii U should be.

    If I recall right this ability to store multiple 3DS games for easy access was pitched as a feature early on, so really this digital push is Nintendo making finally good on a promise. I did a little homework and it seems the 3DS accepts SDHC memory cards, up to 32 gigs, and a 3DS game card maxes out at 8. These are gettable on Amazon for as low as $25, with smaller cards selling at much less. So that's decent, I guess, so long as you don't mind redownloading games from time to time is your library grows and you inevitably need to shuffle things.

    That they're doing this for WiiU also is a surprise, but that's for another topic.

I'd probably check out a couple of games and be done with it. By separating the releases, I may give some consideration to the one game released during the current week, and might end up buying it, whereas in the previous scenario I may not have.
    True, but I hardly think a regular release for GB's (at least 1 or 2 titles per month) would hurt their eShop success.

    Incidentally, I'd like confirmation and details on the following:
    1. I hear there are more NES titles on the way with The Legend of Zelda among them. Can anyone confirm, as well as providing other titles that have been confirmed.

    2. Is SML 3: Wario Land definitely coming sometime as well?

    Oh definitely, they should release at least a game a week, as this 3DS VC drought is ridiculous. Fortunately it's back next week as they've confirmed Kirby's Block Ball (GB).

    They should be, as Zelda NES and SML3:WL have both been released in Japan and Europe for a while now. Japan even has WL2 and WL3. I say they're definitely coming, but I have no idea why NoA is stalling them so much. It's not like they need to be localized.

    At least, the NES Ambassador games should be coming soon as Nintendo promised those would be released at some point.

    Things will definitely get interesting in August, when 3DS retail games are added to the eShop for download. I also expect GBA and DS games to show up further down the line.
