Hello everyone

I have gotten fed up with the lack of good games on the 3ds eshop. So I decided to make a petition. This may not do anything at all but it will at least show nintendo how many people want these games. If you all could please take a few minutes to sign my petition it would be greatly appreciated. also please leave suggestions down below on how I can improve the petition (i.e. if you find spelling mistakes, grammar mistakes, or have suggestions on who to contact when we have enough signature

They've already made a promise because of the ambassador titles, Nintendo as always will do everything they can not to break it, for better of for worse. In any case, the WiiU is confirmed to receive GBA VC instead.

And the 3DS eShop is fine as far as content goes, the near future is looking pretty good too, Shantae, Mighty Switch Force 2, Shovel Knight are all coming soon to the service. VC is lacking but the amount of original content is decent enough.

No, just no. This rumour spread fast throughout the internet and caused confusion.

All they said was no current plans to make these available for normal purchase. They never stated it to be exclusive or anything.

The press release indicates that the GBA Ambassador games are Ambassador exclusive and that they have no plans to make them available for purchase, while the NES Ambassador games are merely early exclusives. The "rumor" as heartgold calls it is based on the language they used in the press release, and since much time has passed and much potential sales for those excellent GBA Ambassador titles has still not motivated them to begin offering it for sale, I really doubt they will make those titles available on 3DS eShop until there is a major change to the 3DS platform (i.e. DSi to the DS/DSLite).

Here's the relevant part from the US press release:
Since Nintendo 3DS launched in the United States on March 27, more than 830,000 people in the U.S. alone have purchased one to enjoy 3D visuals without the need for special glasses. These Nintendo 3DS owners represent some of Nintendo’s most loyal customers, and Nintendo is rewarding them for getting in on the action early with 20 free downloadable games from the Nintendo eShop.

These free games are available to anyone who owns a Nintendo 3DS system and uses a wireless broadband Internet signal to connect to the Nintendo eShop at least once before 11:59 p.m. Eastern time on Aug. 11. These users will automatically be registered in the Nintendo 3DS Ambassador program. The program contains two elements:

Starting Sept. 1, Nintendo 3DS Ambassadors will be able to download 10 NES™ Virtual Console™ games at no charge and before they are available in the Nintendo eShop to the general public. These games, including Super Mario Bros.™, Donkey Kong Jr.™,Balloon Fight™, Ice Climber™ and The Legend of Zelda™, are slated to become paid downloadable games, but Ambassadors get them early for free. Once the paid versions of the games are posted to the Nintendo eShop later in the year, the updated versions will be available to Ambassadors for download at no cost.
By the end of 2011, Nintendo will provide Ambassadors with 10 Game Boy Advance Virtual Console games. These include games like Yoshi’s Island™: Super Mario™Advance 3, Mario Kart™: Super Circuit, Metroid™ Fusion, WarioWare™, Inc.: Mega Microgame$ and Mario vs. Donkey Kong™. These games will be available exclusively to Ambassadors, and Nintendo currently has no plans to make these 10 games available to the general public on the Nintendo 3DS in the future.
More details about this program will be announced in the future.

Signed. Only because I still believe Nintendo will save these games and release them to extend the 3DS's lifespan in its twilight years.

They've always emphasized the "exclusive to ambassadors" part even if they add "no plans to release them to the general public" afterwards. It's possible, but unlikely I think.
Especially taking Wii U GBA VC into consideration, that's an indication that they really don't want to remove the exclusivity they've been mentioning so much, the emulation on the 3DS is already ready for GBA and all but nope, they put it on Wii U instead. Either case, a poll won't do anything.

At least I'm taking some sort of action against it. Ya it might not do anything. But comments like yours just discourage people from trying. Please keep this thread positive

Show me where it says exclusive? I think that press means timely wise.

NES games got a eshop release. For GBA they said no current plans and people took that as an exclusive.

Anyhow, I think we will see GBA VC on the 3DS.

This is directly from their USA press release regarding the price drop which I quoted in my previous post in this thread:
By the end of 2011, Nintendo will provide Ambassadors with 10 Game Boy Advance Virtual Console games. These include games like Yoshi’s Island™: Super Mario™Advance 3, Mario Kart™: Super Circuit, Metroid™ Fusion, WarioWare™, Inc.: Mega Microgame$ and Mario vs. Donkey Kong™. These games will be available exclusively to Ambassadors, and Nintendo currently has no plans to make these 10 games available to the general public on the Nintendo 3DS in the future.


People "take it to mean exclusive" because of the language Nintendo directly used. I certainly hope for more GBA VC content other than those 10 games, but those particular games will probably never be sold in the 3DS eShop, at least until there is a major platform change.

Yes as I said time exclusive as the word 'currently' implies.

There's nothing stopping them doing a GBA VC. It's just not in their plans or they don't want to for whatever reason like everything else.

We've seen what "currently has no plans" means multiple times before.

It means "currently has no plans". :P And time moves forward.

Rydian, I just think it's wishful thinking and not helpful to derive and assert that it actually means "Ambassador games are only exclusive for now" just from a PR standpoint and in regards to the rest of the content of the press release.

Even if they don't release the 10 gba titles of the ambassador program, it doesn't stop them from releasing other gba titles outside these 10. Thus, the petition is not invalid and can even benefit ambassadors since brand new gba titles in the 3DS may appear, stop being a dick and sign it.

THANK YOU!! this is exactly my point. I'm so tired of hearing people say Nintendo wont release them, or they said they have no plans to. ugg its annoying.

Being called a dick sure is inspiring. :rolleyes:

I don't have anything against the petition and I think it would be great if there were some GBA releases for VC, and I definitely don't feel like I need to have the ambassador titles all to myself.
I'm just being rational here, and the only way Nintendo can really avoid backlash for releasing the Ambassador titles to the general public is to wait until there's such a significant change to the eShop or 3DS platform that no one will care. They put a huge emphasis on customer loyalty. Building brand loyalty on the trust of a market primarily dominated by children and teens is srs business.

    still only 600-700 nits i have to use the contrast enhancer to make bright lights look as bright as they are supposed to but the alternative was the next tier up and buying a demo model that would've been about the same cost, that had 1000 nits but issues with black crush

    very dark scenes are more common than very bright scenes so i think i made the right choice

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    there was also a sony with worse local dimming and the glow was really apparent
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Human vision is non linear anyway. 100 nits is about 50% of the peak output of a 10,000 nit display.

  • Julie_Pilgrim @ Julie_Pilgrim:
    "very dark scenes are more common than very bright scenes" not in the games i play

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    really have to buy the top end model to get a tv that doesnt have any of those compromises and that would've had more dimming zones too but i am not made o money

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    @Julie_Pilgrim "very bright" is essentially pure white
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    pure white doesn't show up all that much it's mainly when looking at a bright sky
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    and if the clouds in the sky have slightly less definition to them because i turned on the contrast enhancer who cares
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    that's not important
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    i can't tell the difference
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    but i can certainly tell the difference with black crush if i'm watching a scifi movie and i can't see wtf is going on
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Human vision is logarithmic, it's not linear. And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness. OLED'S look brighter then LCD's even when both are set to the same nit values because of the higher contrast ratio on OLED's
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    OLED's have a 3D look

  • kenenthk @ kenenthk:
    Charging port is more likely to fry up or battery fail before the display tbh lol
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    "And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness" it's not about perceived brightness it's about all HDR content in TV and movies being mastered for 1000 nits so it doesn't look right with anything lower, it's also about dynamic range
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    "OLED's have a 3D look" no they don't lol
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    As an owner of a OLED and you saying that you never seen an OLED I think I know what I'm talking about lol. I'm not talking about 3D as in 3D glasses. I'm talking about depth and pop in the picture
    Gift
  • kenenthk @ kenenthk:
    I mean to be fair og vitas are still kicking and not many have suffered from pixel bleed and they're going on nearly 10 years
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    OLED's can get away with a lower peak brightness and still provide punchy HDR because of their contrast ratio. Like I said human vision is logarithmic. The higher the peak brightness the diminishing returns in perceived brightness.
    Gift
  • kenenthk @ kenenthk:
    Just get 5 years enjoyment out of it until Nintendy releases something and everyone forgets about switch games lol
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    @The Real Jdbye Oleds hit around 750 nits nowadays. The difference between a 1000 nit and a 750 nit isn't huge. It's only about a 4% increase in perceived brightness. Not huge at all. You'll need at least 2000 nit displays to notice a bigger difference.
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Read this thread it explains it. 1000 nits is not a huge jump from 750 the LG OLEDs can hit. As I said human vision is non linear.
