I agree with this article in every sense and I am a fan of the Wii U. The VC is in a sad state right now because of all the reasons listed in this artilce. Nintendo definitely mis-read this market. They thought we wanted classic games released as if they were big releases. They thought tricling them out would make them sell better, but they were dead wrong there. I would much rather have them drop 5-10 a week or a bunch all at once at cheaper prices. NES games should be $2 max and SNES $4-$5 max. I would buy more of them and several at a time. One per week is lame.

their e shop would be so great if they WOULD simply put gamecube games on the wiiu e shop and gba games on the 3ds one.

Agree in every way too. NES and SNES will not do the job. And the price must be lower. I am putting it on hold for now.

Kind of disappointed they aren't all free tbh. Be a great bonus to market and we all know they can use all the help they can get.

If they would finish the library with GameCube they could market a console that would play all past Nintendo games free. I'm sure some people would jump on that. A free epic library and something the others can't offer.

The way it is now is rather insulting tbh. I'm not paying .01 for an almost 30 year old game. Free? Yes, thanks for the bonus of buying Nintendo.
