    Read about this last week, I think its a good idea. This title was one of those that didn't really warrant a retail release.

    Might be worthwhile if they were releasing the whole thing instead of charging repeatedly for a years old game. Yay DSiWare.

    I feel bad for the people who have retail copes of the game. Retail copies of Electroplankton have become pretty rare, selling for upwards of 100 bucks. All that will end with the DSiWare release, though...

    A complete Electroplankton would be good. But, think about the Club Nintendo points that you'll get also!

    No, enthusiasts prefer hard copies over just files. It's like saying, there's no point in paying 500 dollars for a copy of Earthbound because anyone can play it on an emulator.

    When you have the game on a cartridge, it's a piece of matter, which isn't what DSiware is.

    Lol. This reminds me of the Japanese version of Electroplancton at my Gamestop that was $70 used. I asked the clerk "why is this 70 bucks?". He responded "It's Japanese so it's really rare."

    I wonder if I can become rich by selling imported games to gamestop.

    What's odd is I remember buying Electroplankton directly from the NoA site years ago.
