I have never see one in store yet. If it wasn't for the internet I wouldn't even know it exists. I don't think they ever ship any to my area. But I stopped looking a long time ago though. Instead I installed an emulator on my NVIDIA Shield TV with a nice front end that shows box arts, etc., and now I have my own classic system. I can't be bothered with Nintendo anymore. They could have gotten a sale from me if they had made enough. I always see Switches on the store shelf and that's harder to make so I don't know what their problem is.

"Most blockbuster movies moving forward" are SJW crap and not worth watching in 4K or any other resolution.

Why would I want to play a vr version of a board game? You're going to be looking at a static image of the board in a lower resolution than what you would see in real life looking at the real board, or ever on a 2D HD display. What makes current VR great is the immersion you experience when you are looking and moving around in the virtual world. When you stare at static images it doesn't look as good as a regular display, or seeing the thing for real in person. Unless I'm going to be walking the fields of Catan while playing the game I don't see the point for a VR version of this. They don't even have gameplay footage to show and the release is only 3 months away at the most.

Who actually believes Nintendo when they say they'll make a significant amount more?

The real value of this is whether or not it can be hacked and you can load your own stuff.

With only 21 games its not the best deal. There are more first party titles Nintendo could have thrown in for free.

The excuses for ending backwards compatibly are starting. Just like the 360 I wasn't expecting MS to follow through.

@lonesamurai1: You still have to archive digital games with big expensive hard drives for 400+ games. And when that hard drive dies it will take your entire collection with it.

But If you're going for a minimalist clean look than digital is definitely the way to go for you in your case and I understand that.

@lonewolf1044: Yeah, you're right. I don't know why I put GOG on the list.

@lonesamurai1: Digital offers convenience as long as you have an internet connection. Especially when it is accessible across many platforms. Physical offers ownership and in most cases doesn't require internet dependency.

With digital you don't actually own anything and that is why you can't resell like physical. If your digital provider (Steam, GOG, Apple, Google, Microsoft, Sony, etc...) goes out of business you loose your purchased collection. You may even loose it if they don't as is the case with google's movie content license.

"... you will have the non-exclusive right, for the period selected by you ... for as long as Google and the applicable copyright holder have rights to provide you that Content ..."

What that means is if the copyright holder looses their right, or google, you loose yours even if you paid for it. They can remove it from your library without notice and or reimbursement.

Digital video games generally have a better license than Movies and Music. I bought the game Rootbeer Tapper on the 360 back in the day. Than a couple years later Midway went out of business and the game was pulled from the store. I could still redownload it via my download history though new gamers couldn't get it anymore. But eventually MS will stop supporting marketplace downloads for the 360 and than I won't be able to redownload it again.

With a disc you own it for as long as it can last even if licenses and or companies expire.

A single player game that is always online sucks. If ever I don't have wifi or data I can't play the game and Nintendo expects me to think this is good value? Maybe they don't know everyone else beat them to the run style games. The only thing special about this game is Mario not being on a Nintendo platform.
