Nintendo myths that need to die: Virtual Console edition

Many of Nintendo's most popular titles are still not available on the Virtual Console, and gamers have come up with their own explanations as to why. Wii U Only examines some of these myths to determine if there is any truth to them. (Donkey Kong , Donkey Kong 64, Nintendo, Star Fox, Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island, The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask, Virtual Console, Wii, Wii U)

Its cause Nintendo doesn't want our money for some odd reason.

I find it odd that some of these are myths to begin with

>Donkey Kong 64 is a massive game. The Wii doesn't have enough storage space.
>massive game

The maximum size of the N64 game cartridge was 64MB

>The Wii can't handle games that used the Super FX chip. The Super FX chip is too hard to emulate.

Super FX chip too hard to emulate? No. Not at all. SNES emulators I have used handle it just fine.

the problem is SFX chip was codeveloped by 3rd party company, GBA version of this game (Yoshi's Island) was created without need for SFX

look at this

M in circle is i thing some kind of copyright for integrated components

otherwise i agree the virtual console is mediocre at best, no saving for ghost data in MK64, no gfx filters, no resizing it looks horrible on modern LCD

These myths do exist. Do a Google search for 'em. They appear in a lot of forums.

Here's a story about the Virtual Console from last December. If you read the comments section, you can see some of these myths being debated. After seeing stuff like this, I decided to write this article.
