Why 30 Cent Games Don’t Justify a Lame Virtual Console

Jed Pressgrove at Fate of the Game says: "A lot of people talk about their Wii consoles collecting dust, but I’ve played more than 20 games on it since the beginning of the year. My favorite thing about the Wii is its Virtual Console, which allows me to revisit somewhat forgotten classics like Blades of Steel and to discover the awesome shooter library of the TurboGrafx-16, a console I’ve never seen in person. I was very excited when I heard the Wii U would be getting its own Virtual Console in the spring. I kept thinking that a new Virtual Console, upon or shortly after its launch, would have new games – in this case, games that you can’t already buy on the Wii’s Virtual Console.

Well, I was clearly having an idiot’s dream. The Wii U Virtual Console officially launched on April 26, and we still haven’t seen a single damn game on it that you can’t already find on the Wii Virtual Console." (Virtual Console, Wii, Wii U)

Good read ;)

I wish there was more to choose from and I still can't believe Mega Man has more VC games out on the eShop than other Nintendo owned ip's! I question why the games are taking too long when both the Wii and the Wii U share the same architecture...

But with that said i'm satisfied with the titles I currently bought on the VC and to be honest with you i'm having a blast! I just wish we had an OPTION to stretch the image out on both the gamepad and our TV screens. ;)

For a console that has so many generations of games,they should release huge amounts of classic games like a catelog and give us the choice to purchase all the old classics,nes snes,n64,gb,gba,2 a week is to little for as slow as its taking to release just 1 great game for the wiiu. Back catelogs should always be there if you want to buy all the old classics.Not for nothing the prices should also go down 30 cents is a nice price.for better games 5 dollars for n64 would be worth it.

Go tell Sony to dump their entire PS1,PS2 library on the on the PS4 day 1 and Microsoft to dump there entire Xbox1 library on the XboxOne on day one. Then this will make sense.

My only gripe: The games should be cheaper. $4.99 and $7.99 is too much for a 25 year old game. I'd like to see them $2.99 and $3.99

Nintendo's slow burn strategy is just dumb. give us like 5 a week!

All online game services like this take a while to build a library. And the price problem started with Wii. Nintendo has always charged too much for old games.
