Just not a fan of this for any platform
except my pc
I rather just bust out the cartridge or disk
or get the rom to a game I already own

you buy all these digital games and get comfortable when really you dont own them at all
and 1 wrong move wipes your collection and you have to rebuy them all.

technically you are supposed to legally have a copy of all games you own but fancy tos's probably wiped that away.

Well the idea of making a collection or library on console seems like a fairy tale at the moment.

Console makers want to be able to sell more games, they dont like it if people are stuck on the old games. Its not like PC where people can still play 20-25 year old games on the most modern machine they got.

People must have spent thousands of usd buying games this gen, when the next consoles arrive there is a high probability things wont work.

Anyone truly wanting to make a library of hundreds of games and not wanting to be at the mercy of some companies decisions should be looking at the PC as a platform of choice.

I'll buy digitally when Nintendo guarantees that if my console dies I can redownload my purchases...I mean a $5 NES game is one thing but a $60 Wii U game is another lol.

I do have a TB on my Wii u I want to use so please get this right Nintendo!
