    Any differences? I mean, I sure as heck didn't see even a single Japanese letter playing the J version...

    Don't think this is a commercial game but rather a download available to nintendo club members!

    As for any difference then i haven't seen any either.

    paul

    EDIT: then again i could be wrong about it not being a commercial game ebay link

    This is a commercial release, but only available through Club Nintendo. Is that why it gets an XXXX? If so, that's silly.

    I think because it's considered a promotional game, since you can't really "buy" it "new".

    That's exactly the reason. It's happened to the Japanese versions as well.

    Is this game any good?
    I mean, ofcourse, it's Game & Watch, but are there any "new" things or something that aren't on the original Game & Watch?

    Somewhere in this potatoland!
    You can't buy the G&W in a store, you can only get it by earning enough club nintendo points (registering bought games if it contains a card with points)
    Then you can trade in points for a gift, being stupid wallpapers till an exclusive club nintendo only game.

    Pitty Europe has for a long time there Nintendo Star points (now called nintendo points) to trade in such stuff, but we never had anything descent exclusive like a g&w game.

    Very cool. So it's a "collection." Anyone know what all that entails?

    i don't think this is really the (U) version... anyways... i got this one about a year ago... it was really hard to get... and it's #xxxx because... they don't sell it... it's like a special edition game that you get with some points...

    It's only a Club Nintendo release and not a "real" release such as, for example, Animal Boxing, which came out over a month ago. You have to get this has a lame-upon-lame prize for paying for a plethora of other Nintendo materials first, then you can play, golly, three different game and watch titles in their maddeningly bleeping LCD-esque glory. I just hope the NDS doesn't catch fire trying to gather itself the raw processing power needed to run these THREE G&W titles! Any more and it might've caught fire! I certainly can see why it's a "collection" when it contains three--not two--massively epic G&W titles. If they had gone with four, it would have to be called maybe the "Game and Watch Mega Super Ultra Complete Pack Collection Plus Extra".

    It's scary how much fun you can have with this.
    The games are so simple, they're addicting.
