    Although I am slightly annoyed I already have the majority of these games, it's very good for those who don't and Nintendo in general to show their online store can act as a real one with events such as this.

    Nintendo sales?
    Is this a dream?

    This is good, I was going to download DRW today of all days, after I went on ONM. Will wait now :)

    How much is Dillons Rolling Western at the moment?

  5. MartinIsAwesome Friday 22nd Jun 2012 at 11:19

    Oh darn. The only ones I'm interested in I've already got.

    I'm not upset though, because the future potential for this is fantastic. I look forward to future sales where titles in my Watch List will be on offer, like Mutant Mudds, VVVVVV, and Kirby's Dreamland 2.

    I've thinking about downloading Super Mario Land 1 & 2 for a while now. Now seems like the perfect opportunity. :P

    I'm still 90p short.

    Dillon's Rolling Western will have a big price drop due to it's original price.
    I'm thinking of getting Link's Awakening, Mighty Switch Force and Super Mario Bros. 2.
    I may just end up getting MSF. The original bad points were the shortage of levels for the price, and more levels have been added and the price has been reduced so it should be great! Yeah, I'll probably get that!

    As if I bought all the virtual console ones last frigging week -.-

  12. fisher2007 Friday 22nd Jun 2012 at 16:05

    Oh darn. The only ones I'm interested in I've already got also my balance is Ł1.30.

    Never thought I'd see the day when Nintendo did sales! It's really good to see them finally doing this, plus it'll drum up interest again for older released titles. Makes you wonder why they never did it before...

    This will encourage me to get some points for games like Links Awakening, Mighty Switch Force and Dillon's Rolling Western, which I should have got earlier except I couldn't be bothered to purchase any e-shop coins, and Dillon's Rolling Western seemed a bit pricey.

  15. MistaChristopher Friday 22nd Jun 2012 at 23:07

    Now this, this is great. I haven't yet invested in most of these so I will now. Awesome!

  16. Nickario Saturday 23rd Jun 2012 at 11:05

    Finally! Maybe now I can use up that money I still have stored on th 3DS.

    Okay this is nice, but I think its till too expensive. 20% is better than nothing but its all so over priced to start with and 20% is quite a small drop. I would just like to say, I brought sonic CD for Ł2 today on the xbox live arcade (50% off).

    In fairness, Sonic CD was first released in 1993, and then re-released for Windows 95 in 1996. It has looooooong made its money back. ;)

    The 3DSWare titles here are newer and are still in the phase that Sonic CD was in in 1993.
