    I may get some hate for this but I don't see the big deal.... if people REALLY want those games on the shop they can pirate them.

    Piracy is good because you can play older games because if you leave it up to the companies they will be non-existent or force you to buy the remake or gimmick collectors edition.

    I just have one word for all of you, and then you're going to have to look it up yourself: MarioCube. If you have any issues, just ask my buddy @Larsenv. :)

    Nintendo is dumb. If they publicized they were doing this there would have been an influx of dsiware purchases. Now that they just yeeted it they lost out on this opportunity in those specific regions

    That's a lot of games to delist without any announcement. Wonder if it means 3DS' EoL is coming sooner than expected.

    I didn't even know there were that many DSi titles. I had Photo Dojo, Flipnote Studio, Inchworm Animation, the Wario Ware one, the one where the birds eat the falling beans, and the paper airplane one, and I believe the latter two were Wario Ware minigames made into standalone titles.

    Finally someone with the same opinion like me. Piracy its a problem service and price.

    Steam gives better prices and its very rare to see some games delisted in their platform.Nintendo its very famous dont give discounts like Mario,Zelda or Metroid Games and delisted their games. because its anti friendly consumer company like EA,they give a huge fuck them for their loyal fanbase.

    the delisting thing seems to be more of a recent plague...though at the same time they have actually started doing sales on there first party games recently...this isn't exactly the trade off I wanted >.<

    Wouldn't be surprised if it were somehow erroneous. I don't think it's saving any server space if they're still available for redownload.

    I already saw one post on Reddit saying "zomg I need to get the games for preservation!!!" As if every DSiware game hasn't been spread on the Internet in a conveniently-downloadable package a hundred times over at this point.

    The one DSiware game I was sort of interested in was X-Scape, but it never went on sale for a price sufficient to justify its purchase, considering I have a zillion other things to play already.

    And we're not even talking about games that were originally released for the 3DS here.

    Why the heck would you think that?

    That's why I never trust eShop for to buy digital games to download. Nintendo company is trying to mess with eShop that would affect some or most people would get very angry then fill complaint in court to do lawsuits against Nintendo.

    What happened if Nintendo end support for eShop on Nintendo Wii U and Nintendo 3DS? That will be very bad! :(

    I'm old school always stick with physical copy of game discs forever. I'm not fans of digital download from eShop and PlayStation store. I find out that why digital is trash means take our digital games away and no way to get back when company end support on them. Thanks god I don't have to worry about it.

    Why would you think I was being serious?

    Obviously if you can’t buy something people are more likely to pirate it.

    That is exactly what they did, they removed the docking function so they could sell it for less money.
    And the Switch Lite is still a small tablet, not something that fits in your pocket. Especially clamshell designs work well with that.
    Just checked it out of curiousity, a ps vita still fits in my pocket.

    I mean, the DSiWare service did have a decent amount of high quality games but most of them were first party games (stuff like X-Scape, Aura Aura Climber, etc.) and there were a good dozen or so high quality third party games (like Shantae Risky's Revenge) but I will say that yeah alot of the DSiWare library is garbage

    imo they didnt need to redesign the whole thing, they could have easily made a package that only had the tablet and joycons for 200 dollars, and that would've let you upgrade later down the line
