    Hi guys,
    I found a video which seems to suggest the e-store will sell retail versions of 3DS games on the e-store.

    http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2011-06-...update-detailed

    On this video, look at 00:30, you can see that there is an Ocarina of time section and on this item it lists the item at 4800 Yen, which equals £34.99, which is the standard price of 3DS games, so it seems likely the e-store will sell retail games on the e-store!

    The e-store is looking better everyday!

    Are you sure its not just advertising the game and its in store price? I highly doubt you could download full 3ds games cos it'd take too long plus you would need a bigger SD card.

    It would be cool to have it on my system without the need for the cart but surely something like this would make it easier for hackers to rip it?

    I think you are looking at that wrong. It may be like a video demo thing.

    Yeah, they are demos that tell the price of the game. Not the actual price.

    The e-store wont sell retail 3ds games, what you saw is just a section where it shows u upcoming game's details and lets you download and watch a trailer

    I want it to become a reality since games are expensive here compared to US so an eShop option would be great, though highly unlikely [​IMG]

    Dunno why there's a price there.

    But compare that eShop to the one they showed before:

    Looks like they delayed it to make it look different at the very least. Hopefully works better too.

    they should just release some king of sdk that uses a little part of the 3ds firmware for like 99$ so we will have some nice apps coming out .......for example photo-shop on the 3ds *-*
