oh wow this is massive. If marketed correctly this could be a game changer

I don't see how this is "Massive" or "huge news". Good news, but not huge.

There are over 150 million DS out there, and over 40 million 3DS out there. Ds on Virtual console is not a game changer in any way, since that audience is already being served, not to mention they're 10 year old games that most people should have played by now, especially considering the DS sold that many handhelds.

It's good for some fans to re-buy their favorites to play, but it's not going to help the Wii U with it's current problems.

The one thing it does do, is pave the way for a potential "Fusion" console like the rumors aka I've been saying Nintendo should do with their gamepad and next console. If DS games are coming, then there's a chance 3DS games are coming once a successor is announced.

While i find the DS VC on wii u okay, they need to make GameCube games available on the Wii U and even Wii games.....

It's backwards compatible with wii games. Why on earth would they put them on VC.

There's a few Castlevania games I'd LOVE to play on my Wii U!
Actually there's just this huge plethora of games that I'd love to have on my Wii U from those days; I've lost so many games from back then and the loss is always painful when you really loved the games...
