I don't have a Vita, but from what I've heard, it's the superior version solely due to screen size.

Oops, you're right, I'm an idiot. I thought the Club Nintendo thread had sales listed too, my bad.

A thread like this has to have the OP as a Wiki post.
Thread title has to have some of the actual deals in it.

My problem was this hoarder took all of them including my one copy as I helped her.

Yeah, there's an eshop trailer. It looks like one of those games that has lame graphics (lines and arrows) but might actually be fun

The OP made this exact same thread three days ago and abandoned it to make this thread, so it might be better for somebody that's more stable to do this sort of thread.

I'm sorry, I'm a bit new to this. That was an unannounced sale thread, and (mistake mistake) I failed to realize I could edit the thread title. Why not give tips like others rather then imply I'm a loose cannon?

You're OUT OF CONTROL, 45! Hand in your badge.

Not sure why deal threads aren't Wikified by default.

If you're actually going to try to keep it up, then here are some tips:

  • Alphabetize the list in the OP and combine everything into one list. You don't need to separate them by date.
  • Double check that everything on the list is still on sale each week when there's no end date mentioned anywhere.
  • Anything that does have a known end date, include it after the price so people know how long they have to get it.
  • Remove your opinions from the list since the OP should just have the facts in it. Nobody really cares about your opinion unless they ask for it.
  • Keep the thread title updated every week so we know it's updated.

You don't need to wiki the thread for something like this since there aren't going to be a flood of deals on the eShop because if you do end up giving up, then somebody will make a new thread anyway. The Xbox Live thread is a whole other beast entirely.

Since you missed it from your other thread, the Pokedex game thing has a known end date that you might want to add to it.

You read it. You can't unread it.

Off topic, but are there any free games on the 3DS eShop?

No games, just demos and apps like Swapnote. Earlier on, they gave away games like excitebike and four swords but they seem to have stopped that.

Wow...the eshop payment setup is awful. Even if you fund it with your credit card, you can only add funds in increments of $10, $20, or $50. And they charge tax, leaving you with uneven cents that will likely remain in your wallet forever.

I just grabbed Rhythm Core Alpha and was hoping to get EscapeVektor, but, thanks to the extra 40 or 50 cents each for tax, I'd literally have to add $20 total to get those two $5 games.

EDIT: Nevermind. Ignore my rant. I just missed the fact that there's a "necessary funds" button tucked away in the corner of the payment screen. Thanks for the heads up, Bios Element.

At the bottom of the payment screen, you can just pay the amount needed for the current order.

Thanks for the info! I guess I missed the "add necessary funds" ability. First time using the eshop and all. Paid the extra bit and grabbed EscapeVektor. All's well now...lol

It should really be at the top. Big "Pay $5.39" button, so either they're greedy or their UI designers suck.

It's a step up from the competition, but yes, their UI designers totally suck. You really just noticed this? >.>

I'd say they're about the same since the art style is so minimalist. I got the 3DS one today and it's fine. 3D is nice too, get it for whichever platform you prefer.

Hhhmm...and that doesn't interfere with the authentication of your credit card?

Btw, actually feeling better about not knowing you could pay the exact amount now. I mentioned it to a friend of mine who has a launch 3DS AND an XL, and even he didn't know you could pay the exact amount and has had a balance sitting in his account gnawing at him.
