Why would I want to have/use Single-Card Download?
- 1. Learn about, and play, new games.
There are lots of ways to learn about new games. You can read reviews about them in magazines and on web sites. You can check out the
promotional material provided by the publisher. You can even try them out personally by borrowing them from a friend. You could also rent them
from a local store or online service. While some games are given good reviews by everybody and widely accepted as a success, that doesn't
mean that an individual person will enjoy it. On the same note, a game can be trashed by reviewers and down-talked on the Internet, and be
the kind of game an individual will still enjoy. With Single-Card Download, you can try out a game - either a part of the whole game or
mini-games that contain similar themes and controls - without ever having to take responsibility for a game cartridge you don't own or deal
with someone else's game cartridge that might already be previously damaged and not work right.
- 2. Preview/select the best games before spending the money.
There are a lot of great games out there, and each individual person can find several if given the opportunity. The questions is, which
game do you want the most right now in order to make you the happiest? With games that feature Single-Card Download, you can check out which
ones you'll want NOW before spending your money NOW.
- 3. Allow siblings or friends to share games.
When talking about having multiple game-playing siblings in one house (or multiple game-playing friends in a dorm/apartment/etc.),
gift-giving becomes a matter of buying multiple copies of the same game. For Multi-Card Play, this is still necessary, but if a game has Single-Card
Download features, you can buy different Single-Card Download titles for each sibling/friend/etc. This provides more selection for game-playing later,
more choices for the siblings/friends/etc. of what to play next, and the ability to choose from two or three multi-player games to play instead of the
same choice all the time. Who wants kids (or even college students for that matter) getting bored?
- 4. What if siblings/friends/etc. can't share in a safe and friendly manner?
One of the beauties of Single-Card Download play is that the host doesn't have to physically let the guest touch anything. In the Single-Card
Download process, a wireless connection sends the Single-Card Download data from the host to the guest. That way, if the disagreeable parties don't
play nice, nothing gets damaged, so there's nobody to blame.
- 5. Have the ability to play in a group without rebuying each game repeatedly.
Almost everybody that's ever owned a handheld video game system has had the occasion to want to play multi-player games. Consoles (video game
systems that hook up to the television) have always allowed for at least two players, but handheld systems have just the one display for just
the one player. As a result, you must have an additional system for each player. Traditionally, if you then wanted to play a multi-player
game together, each person would then need to have their own copy of the game and a link cable would then need to be provided to connect the
systems together. While some games still require each person to have their own copy of the game (Multi-Card Play) because the amount of data
is too large to save in temporary memory, there is now the Single-Card Download option, which allows a wireless link to send data from the
host to as many as fifteen (15) or more guests (the number of guests depends on each game) at the same time for multi-player matches
without each person in a group needing to buy a copy of each game for themself.
- 6. Share.
No matter how much fun they are, some games are just simply more fun with more than one person. Sharing the experience of playing, either by
helping them beat a puzzle or by shooting them down and watching them crash and burn, the laughing and teasing actually becomes part of
the game; it's an entirely different experience. Almost every Single-Card Download game features multi-player gaming and the ones that don't
still enable everyone to help each other out just by learning the game and how it works.
- 7. Play even when you don't have a lot of time.
Sometimes, you'd like to play a game, but you don't have a lot of time on your hands. Single-Card Download games only take around a
minute or two to download and nearly all Single-Card Download games include some form of quick play (play that takes less than five minutes) as an
