That is why I **HATE** things like Steam and the other electronic resources. Prime example. Nintendo's Wii Ware shop. Gone. If your Wii breaks, and you get another one, all your games are gone. Nintendo got your money, they don't care. Sure, you can find them online, but there are a lot of people that do the right thing, and invest good money in these games, and deserve to be able to show them to their grand kids 30 years from now.
