    Pretty much everything mentioned here is disappointing. I also don't understand why you can't enter the HOME menu.

    its probably cause GBA is experimental and the NES titles are not the "finished" versions.

    Wouldn't it be funny if an exploit was found in one of those exclusives.

    Am I reading this right?
    Not only do the GBA titles lack Auto-SRAM saving (you have to manually save the SRAM after saving in-game), but they don't even go into sleep mode when you close the lid?
    Or do they mean, to save using the ROM's save function itself?

    Yikes, Nintendo you can do better. It's not hard to just...pause the emulation, is it?

    Yay, looks like the GBA games do not have state save [​IMG]
    Actually, the GBA part sounds really rushed >_

    i really don't have a desire to get the games early. i would rather that they polish the games for a final release and just let the ambassador program people grab the titles at that point free of charge.

    Yeah if the game supports in-game save...you can save it and then when you close it that's when that game gets saved. I've comprehended it that way.

    @FrozenIndignation: why'd you want a state save in GBA? Isn't that kinda like cheating...

    yeah we're basically beta testing the nes and gba games so you can't expect polished product functions in a beta version.
    i expected this when i first heard about the free games early and it doesn't bother me because we will eventually get the finished products for free, and though it may bother others Nintendo could have been dicks about it and done nothing to compensate those who jumped on the 3DS band wagon early.
    the fact that they did says a lot about how they handle there customer service and commitment to the consumers who buy their products.

    They're not getting any money out of this so they're probably putting little effort in this...

    Optimally I'd like a quick save option... save deleted after use... Or the closest thing to it: save states, just like the other VC content on the 3DS... Even more so if I cannot put the game in sleep mode like with these GBA games...

    well that sucks... At least NES games will be updated, but I'd like to get multiplayer, at least for Mario Kart Super Circuit [​IMG]

    Why the hate?

    We are getting the full features of the NES later on for free.

    So what if the GBA doesn't support restore point and suspend mode. It's nothing big, is it?
    I never expected the GBA to support multiplayer. Who knows maybe if they release it to the public next year they'll improve on the GBA features.

    Online multiplayer for both NES and GBA was a farfetch.

    not only did ninty rip you off, but disguising the ambassador program as beta testing.

    I see no problem in it.

    1. Ambassadors are getting them early, unassumingly with the option to re-download later if there are updates.
    2. Why would you even need save-state in a GBA game? The original GBA didn't do that!

    i keep thinking of the dsi-ware transfer app we "beta tested" and how it damaged some systems (assuming it was the reason because i haven't read anything saying 100% that it was).
