Nintendo eShop: Pre-orders?


The Nintendo eShop has been experiencing some traffic over the holiday season and because of this Nintendo felt it was necessary to disable communications to the 3DS and Wii U eShop until the traffic lowered. Now that it's back, I thought I'd say some things that, if I had the power, I would modify to make the eShop even better than it was before.

Pre-orders would really help when you're really busy and a game is coming out. I've been waiting for games like Super Mario Bros. 3 on Virtual Console and the long awaited Flipnote Studio 3D, but I don't feel like checking the eShop every day. I think pre-orders would really solve this problem. What you would do is go onto the Nintendo eShop and tap the software you would like to purchase. If the game or application is not on the eShop yet, one of the options given would be "pre-order". When the game comes out on the eShop, connect your 3DS or Wii U to the internet, and the software should automatically download. Similar to the Wish List feature, the Nintendo eShop will deliver a notification to you via Home Menu that says "____ was released on the eShop. This title is currently being downloaded." along with a link to the eShop.

Does this seem like a good idea, or could it have some flaws? Tell me in the comments below.
