    Get ready for a bunch of Newbs flooding the boards asking how to get their precious games... [​IMG]

    In the words of a Joystiq comment.... "As much as I love Nintendo... DEAR GOD GET SOMEONE THAT KNOWS HOW TO DO ONLINE. ANYBODY."

    It makes sense, they don't want to put it on the shop until its available to purchase.

    Can we have some sort of sticky when they come out, so we don't have 30 threads a day asking how to get the games?

    Well, it could be A LOT more complex. Just have to know where to look.

    I'm starting to understand the "because its Nintendo" comment, people have been making since the gamecube launch day.

    Well, I understand why, they give you the ticket, so basically, the eshop thinks you downloaded it before.

    Because that'll help [​IMG]

    Sounds...pretty smart if you ask me. Although just a "My Downloads" or a "My Games" button would be a LOT simpler, this is good too.

    Redownload? Sounds like cool think to do once in a while instead of the straight download thing. I bet all the kids is going to like "Where is my games?!?!?! *Logs on GBAtemp and rages*". Lets all wait for the wave to hit GBAtemp.

    It doesn't matter how complicated it is. People are still going to freak out and flood the boards because of the slightly weird proccess. I'm thinking Nintendo will probably post the instructions in the "News" tab of the eShop. Maybe that will help. [​IMG]

    While this isn't complicated, it just goes to show how terrible Nintendo is at building something as simple as an Online Shop system.

    Not really complicated - but seriously, the eShop really needs a vast improvement. It's simply odd..

    I agree, the whole category thing is a mess. I don't understand why they did this...
