Wii U Virtual Console…did Nintendo get it right

Nickerous writes, "So, as it turns out, Nintendo did announce the Virtual Console for the Wii U during their Nintendo Direct presentation today. NES, SNES, and even GBA titles were discussed. One key item the Wii U VC needed was off tv play on the Gamepad and, thankfully, Nintendo confirmed that this will be available. Unfortunately, this was just about the only thing Nintendo did right with the Wii U VC. Click below for more." (Retro, Virtual Console, Wii U)

I understand that Nintendo needs to make money but when they make us buy games over for a third time you can't help but shake your head, unless of course your blinded by your fanboyism. Also I'm still rather pissed about the Wii channel in general and for many good reasons, I'll name a few... No pro controller support wtf why did I buy it, very limited download space for no good reason other than lasiness and lastly the way the Wii U displays older Wii games and even virtual console titles is simply atrocious. I don't know how they fucked up such a good thing so badly and I absolutely refuse to do a data transfer for these reasons. All this shit should have worked hassle free off the Gamepad from day one and without the washed out mess from horrible up scaling which should infact make things look better not worse. I love Nintendo but they make some baffling decisions.
