It's not the same thing. The steam versions of these games don't have to be manufactured in order for people to get them. They just get a copy. To get a new 3DS Nintendo would have to manufacture it. But I get what you're saying.I want to buy a brand new 3DS from Nintendo but they don't sell them anymore they want you to buy their newest thing instead. Is it anti consumer bs as well?
At least you can still play these games if you already have them on Steam.
