Wii U Deluxe owners can now receive $5 credits to be used on the 3DS/Wii U eShops based on previous purchases.
Digital is the way to go (for me, anyway :P)!
Yay! I've already spent $80 on the eShop ($60 for ZombiU, $20 for Trine2), so I guess I'll get back about $8, which will go towards Nano Assault Neo or another future eShop title (already own Mighty Switch Force and Mutant Mudds on my 3DS). :)
I know, I bought AC3, Scribblenauts, Trine 2 and Nano Assault Neo in digital form. That's a bunch of credits already! Edit - I already earned 2 $5 gift cards, which is nice. The only problem is I end up with 496 points left over. 4 measley points shy of another $5 code. Talk about a bummer there.
Aw, crap, I didn't know it gave you credit in a $5 by $5 basis. I guess that makes sense from a marketing standpoint, I mean, you for example, will have to buy something else on the eShop to gain those pesky 4 points you need to get another $5 credit... and then... you will get even more credits that will be short of another $5 bonus... so you'll buy something again... Sneaky Nintendo. This is kind of assholish, but it's genius. XD
digital is fail sureee you get your 8 bux back but in a month when that game is sitting on your hdd doing nothing and cant be traded for a $40 gamestop credit compared to you swift 8 bux.....
Most people don't trade games in at GameStop. Have fun getting screwed!
You're right, you could waste time and money (gas) to go to your nearest Gamestop to trade in your old game and get 8 bucks for it... Oh wait. :P
He probably traded in his PS2 with 2 controllers and 77 games... I'm seriously considering the same! ...
I'd be interested in this if they would remove the drm that ties the download to a single console. I'd like to be able to move my external drive from one room to another and be able to play the game. I guess I'll need to stick to physical copies until they fix this. I would be very angry if I purchased hundreds of dollars worth of games and have my console break. As it is I would lose all those games if even though I had a second console.
only one or two games worth buying on there
gamestop here gives trade 2 get 1 new its been like that for years most store do here futureshop bestbuy all have trade in 2 for 1 not bad at all
