Astro's Playroom (both should be removed because it's pre-installed software)

Sound logic. Let's remove Brain Age Express: Math and Brain Age Express: Arts & Letters as well.

It's still a video game. I would understand with something like StreetPass Mii Plaza, Nintendo Video, heck, even with the Netflix and YouTube apps (Why are these and others like them even listed here?). But whether pre-installed or not, or some form of ROM hack without a physical release, anything else that's a video game should be deemed worthy of an entry. This is a video game database after all.

But I digress, this isn't the place to storm up this type of discussion. Y'all keep playing however you want to play.

I believe that the reasoning is that these are software for a video game console. As opposed to software for a computer, which we would not cover. For example, we do not track banking software for PCs or micros, but we do track banking software for video game consoles. A similar logic is applied to the digital platforms, but it hasn't really been decided by anyone officially. It gets somewhat tricky because we only would track games and DLC on Steam and not other stuff like movies or soundtracks. And even worse is that the MS App store is not actually broken down into separate chunks like we have it broken down in the db, but is one giant monolith with all sorts of apps on it. Although I'm not certain if it is possible to see Office 365 from and Xbox One, despite the fact that it probably wouldn't let you install it.

There are two entries for this game with a reversible cover.  I've submitted Cover Art / Back Art / Game title corrections for one of them already.

Keep:
https://vgcollect.com/item/144239 "Aaero (silver cover)". --> renamed to "Aaero (reversible cover)"

Delete:
https://vgcollect.com/item/164542 "Aaero (blue cover)"

As far as I know, separate entries for items like this are created since these items are packaged with both covers outward-facing, with the version someone receives being random. Many collectors never open LRG, etc. products, so separate entries are a means of differentiation. Had these items had been released with one standard outward cover with the reversible cover never packaged outward-facing, it'd be different. There are other entries for items just like the one you're mentioning with the same circumstances.

Multiple references to the same item seems like inflation to DB imo ... I feel like I do it more justice with the Cover Art / Back Art / Game title corrections, but those are still pending. The blurb about the "...cover is reversible ..."  and "..randomized from factory .." have not been removed from the Product description, so in my eyes, the one combined-updated listing should still satisfy those LRG collectors that you mentioned.   
If there are other entries for items like these that exist, and I happen across them... I'll update them with further accuracy as needed.  Imo, if 2 items in the db are exactly the same (i.e. all the same details, ex. item #, barcode #, etc), and they're just shipped with whatever-side of the reversible cover as 'outward-facing', then those 2 products should be merged -or- update one, then delete the other.  Naturally, the final decision is left up to the mods and db admin on accepting/rejecting the submitted changes, and to instruct us how they want these products added when the scenario occurs.

Variations are allowed multiple entries. No entry is allowed to be multiple releases. Do not try to make 1 entry represent 2 separate items. Those edits to put multiple covers on one entry were rejected and the items you posted here will not get merged.

Thank you for responding! That clears it up for me, and now I know for the future how how those should be handled. :)
