The eShop channel has been out for a few weeks and is a much needed improvement over the older DSiWare Shop channel for the DSi. Thank you Nintendo. I do, however, have a few gripes with the current eShop set up.
Currently the eShop is lacking in content. While we are only a few weeks since launch, this is understandable but why are there 400 different ways to find the same 25 titles? Come to think of it, why is there only 25 titles? Sure we have DSiWare that we can all download but frankly who wants that stuff that isn't optimized for the 3DS and priced too high for sub-par graphics? Am I wrong in this logic? Nintendo and 3rd party developers need to create more 3DS exclusive content to make use of the 3DS 3D capabilities.
Why do we only have 4-5 old school titles in the Virtual Console? While I'd love to see Nintendo launch their entire old catalog right from day 1, I understand the reasons why they don't. But only giving us 1-2 titles a week is just too painstaking. Where are the NES games? Where are the great Gameboy games?! However, I will say thank you again to Nintendo for re-releasing Super Mario Land. The problem is I have played SML about 40 times and beat it more times then I have beaten the other Mario titles. We need/want more!
Also why aren't their any demos? With all major consoles (Wii excluded of course) having demos for nearly everygame, how come the 3DS and even the DSi have no demos? I am sure that myself and others would spend much more hard earned money to buy games if they tried them.
