    Yeah that's messed up You can probably find them cheaper on craigslist or something. That's why a lot of us make legal backup copies. In case things like that happen we still have the game. That's why we gotta keep legal backups legal because things like this are the alternative. Which is just more money out of the pocket of us consumers. Sorry to hear about your troubles. I love Nintendo, but lately seems they're just trying to make a buck off of everything they can (but they're a business, and that's what businesses do).

    That's why I have all of my games on a HD. My son is really good at destroying discs! You can probably find them used @ a gamestop or similar store for less that postage plus $35.

    I assume you're speaking of Nintendo? I was simply agreeing with you, they were wanting to charge you too much

    Ah, that's why I love back-ups. I can safely call myself an expert on destroying disk. Some look like I tied them under my shoes and used them for skating or something (I actually do this with disk that contain sensitive data and need to be destroyed :P ).
