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.
