Game|Life Video: 5 Ways Nintendo Can Fix Wii U’s Virtual Console

Virtual Console, the service that allows Wii owners to download and play classic games from ages past, has been one of the best and worst features of Nintendo’s game machine.

Hundreds of games are on the service, virtually perfect emulations of memorable titles from the Nintendo Entertainment System, Sega Genesis and other retro platforms. But over the last few years, Nintendo has slowed the release schedule to almost a full stop. So far in 2012 it has only released 15 games on the service.

With the next-generation Wii U platform coming soon, Nintendo has the opportunity to reinvigorate its downloadable games initiative and make Virtual Console more than just an afterthought. In this week’s episode of Game|Life’s video entertainment program, we discuss five things it can do to boost its appeal on the new machine. (Virtual Console, Wii U)

I want to play virtual console on just the gamepad as well. Nintendo has stated that they will add gamecube games to virtual console. If they are doing gamecube, then they should be able to do GB,GBA, and DS games would work because of the touch screen. The gamepad can go a certain distance away from the Wii U, now i do not know about anyone else, buuuuuut Melee and Sunshine seem a lot more appealing on the toilet lol.
