    I suppose it's handy if you should be want to trade in games to pay for a download for a game that's hard to find online. That's about it though, as I'd think most would prefer a disc/cart if they have it in stock.

    I have to say seeing this now makes me want to trade in my 3DS collection and make it digital as I have no intention of selling any of them, it would be nice to just have my collection on a SD card or two and GAMES prices are cheaper for the code than they are on the e-shop.

    Cheaper yeh, but not cheap.

    Layton is £32 download, but I bought the boxed version for £12...

    I'll never pay more than 25 notes for a 3DS game though really. Or any game for that matter.

    What's the point of going into a shop to buy a card that gives you a code that you can take home to download?

    It's less convenient that the normal download method and the physical cart/disk method.

    Its game trying to remain relevant. Although, to be fair, apparently their efforts to sell steam codes and all that caper in store have actually been reasonably successful, so what the fuck do we know?

    I don't have a problem going to a shop/online to get a code to download. If you buy in GAME your also getting points towards something else in the future which is a bit of extra cash.

    Thats how I buy my steam credit/Microsoft points/itunes vouchers and so on and so forth.

    I dont. But you cant help wonder what the point in getting off your arse, going to a game shop, buying a download code, then trotting home to download it is.

    Theres a huuuuuuuge step in the middle you could do away with if you bought it from, say shopto.

    It's my day off, and my Wii U is to arrive within the next hour (aka early o'clock). Excited to finally get my hands on one!

    Welcome to the party bud. We're waiting for Nintendo to do a 3ds currently.

    Well, I'm waiting for Game and Wario and Pikmin 3 at least.

    I'm still enjoying Nintendoland, though I fear I'm the only one! Had my wife and almost 3 year old playing Zelda with me the other day, was so much fun seeing the little man be able to play along with daddy. He was beaming from ear to ear! :D

    Nintendoland is great fun, far better than I expected a minigame collection to be.

    In fact I wasn't bothered about Pikmin 3 at all until I played Pikmin Adventure.

    Loving the controller, I like how it's large but comfortable to hold. My god, the Wii U menu's are atrociously slow though.

    The menus are definitely a bit slow, but I noticed one thing. Loading the Wii U up is ten times quicker than loading my 360.

    It should help if you clean the cache (on your Xbox 360) ... did wonders when mine was taking nearly forty or fifty seconds to show the dashboard in its entirety. Think it takes a little under fifteen-twenty seconds now, thankfully!

    I also deleted all of my demos, the odd trial or two and game files for those I no longer played, or owned for that matter.

    The game pad battery - did Nintendo source them from Poundland or something? I can live with the 3hr battery life, I rarely have marathon game sessions these days and its simple enough to whack it back in the stand. But the drain when OFF is appalling. Not used my Wii U for about a week, took the pad off the stand when it'd completed its charge. Switch it on this morning and its flashing low battery. Crazy. Yeah yeah, I can leave it on its stand permanently but that's hardly energy efficient.

    Thought I may have a duffer, but a quick google shows I'm not alone. Quite surprised given how awesome all other Nintendo stuff is for holding a charge - I can switch on a DS after 9 months idle and it's still got practically a full charge. The PSP, in contrast, was infamous for always been dead when you've not used it for a bit.

    I can see a new iteration of the gamepad in a year or so.

    Better battery, better screen and a little sleeker. Probably to coincide with some dual gamepad game or something.

    Maybe Pikmin will be out by then!

    There's a reason for the humongous battery space in the Gamepad; I expect there will be a “Super Power Battery” which last up to 10 hours released around Christmas time.

    Apart from the fact the battery is wired in. I don't see Nintendo doing anything that isn't plug and play.

    Not arsed about 10hr battery life - but it'd be nice - it's the draining whilst completely shut off that's frankly pathetic. If I leave my iPad on, wifi on, for a week, it'd probably lose 10%. Off, it'd still have 99%. The game pad loses almost all of its charge whilst off in a week! Have Nintendo never heard of Sanyo Eneloops?

    Haha, very good. They're amazing, if you could ever describe bloody rechargeable batteries as amazing.
