If you want to continue your progress on your NES games, make sure the system stays on.
The post has been updated with new information. The post was not misleading or information false. There are different was to switch between games.
Nintendo just keeps making mistake after mistake. Not gonna waste my time with these then
Why not? They are free (if you got a 3DS early), and you'll be able to upgrade them to the full version (including full save functions) free of charge when they are released to the public.
Wonder why there are disagrees to my comment? I don't think that I said anything incorrect! The games ARE free if you bought the 3DS early, and you CAN update them free when they are released to the public. These are facts, so why disagree?
I think the notion behind it seems that they just rushed it out to try and keep those people about the price drop thing happy.
That may well be the case, but at least the updates are still free, and the 10 GBA games are not set to be publically released in the near future. I still don't understand why there were disagrees to my comment, though, although it does happen quite frequently on here. The OP stated that he's not going to waste his time with these games. So, either he has a 3DS already (and would be silly not to take advantage of the free games, since he is entitled to them anyway), OR he doesn't have a 3DS (and therefore wouldn't be eligible for the free games anyway), and is therefore commenting negatively just for the sake of it. The facts are: 3DS early adopters get 10 free NES games and 10 free GBA games. The NES games will be updated free of charge when the final versions get released to the public, and the GBA games are not scheduled to be released to the public at all. How exactly can facts be disagreed with? lol
"The facts are: 3DS early adopters get 10 free NES games and 10 free GBA games." See this is the thing. I don't consider them free, because ambassadors paid $70 more in comparison to everyone else. So in a way people paid $70 for these games. To be honest the ambassador thing felt last minute in terms of planning it with the price drop.
Many would agree that this is the price you pay for being an early adopter, though. The people who have to have the latest stuff always pay more. Do I think that I should be compensated for buying my PS3 on release when the price was dropped soon after? Or because it is now half the price it was when I bought it? No I don't. I understand that price drops occur - sometimes early, sometimes quite late. Nintendo didn't technically have to do anything for the early adopters, but they did, just like Sony didn't have to give free games etc after the PSN incident. It's a thank you to the fans for supporting them and sticking with them, and I'm quite pleased that they did it. And besides, didn't IGN state that the value of these games is actually worth more than the price drop anyway? EDIT - And now I'm out of bubbles, so I can't carry on this conversation. :( However, as always, it was nice to actually have someone join the discussion. :)
I do agree that it's nice that they did this. It's just that I felt they could have gone about it in a way that made it seem like it wasn't last minute. :p As far as the IGN thing though, I'll be honest with you, I barely if at all pay attention to them. And yea it's a shame this bubble system holds up how many messages you can give. Then again, a lot of stuff needs to be revamped.
I guess this is a throwback.
I thought this was already explained, these games would feature limited functions until they went public, then Ambassadors would be able to get a free update for the game with every thing functioning, including saves.
You realize how dumb that is? You cant even save your game? What's the point of playing? Idk about you but I'm not one for starting a game over everytime I wanna play it.
I agree. There used to be a time when you lost progress when you turned it off, but that was stopped for a reason. It sucks, thats why we can save now.
Here's what Nintendo say about the early access versions of these games (and it certainly wasn't some hidden secret that has just been revealed): "Features of the Virtual Console NES titles (priority delivery version) - An electronic manual explaining game controls will be included. - The official version* (which will be delivered at a later date) will include a full electronic manual. - Alternating multiplayer modes are supported in some titles, but simultaneous multiplayer modes are not. - The official version* (which will be delivered at a later date) will also support versus play. - Does not include the “Restore Point” function (which allows you to create and load restore points at any time while gameplay) usually included in the Virtual Console Game Boy and Game Boy Color games. - However, it will include the “VC Suspend” function (which allows you to save the game when you suspend play by pressing the HOME Button). The official version* (which will be delivered at a later date) will support the Restore Points function. - You will be able to “Transfer to another Nintendo 3DS” with the “System Transfer” function that will be provided in future system updates. - *Official versions of the games will be launched later for a fee, but Nintendo 3DS Ambassadors will be able to upgrade from the priority delivery version to the official version free of charge. "
lol, what are these companies thinking?! FAIL!
Nintendo throws us back 23 years be ready to write down the password at the game over screen.
Why are people shocked by this? First off, these are NES titles. Most of them didn't even support saving in the first place. Secondly, this was announced by Nintendo a long time ago. You will be able to download an updated version of every game with save features for FREE. You guys should be glad you're getting these amazing games. And besides, I keep my 3DS on 24/7. I leave it on my mount every day. Just be careful with the battery on trips.
What a waste of energy.
:O Man I know their limited versions...BUT CA'MAAN
i just turned my 3ds off.. they all have resume after i turn them on does this happen only when u ran out of battery?
Yes you are right. The post has been updated with the new info. You have to manual close the game before you turn off the 3DS. There is more details at the post.
i feel special now <3 w.
Would you guys care to read the whole story before even jumping on the hate train lol. I guess you are all now silent. I also think that if a story is updated because it isn´t totally true, then its title must be changed, because it definitely is misleading.
Damn, everyone got all angry. It was announced by Nintendo a while ago, so technically you all have been warned, but alas, who reads instruction manuals or stuff like that in the 21st century?
