Confused vision: Wii U Virtual Console needs to deliver

"By now you’ve probably caught wind of the news emanating out of Nintendo’s investor meeting earlier this week that the Wii U Virtual Console would become home to digital re-releases of Nintendo DS titles.

If you’re like me, you’re probably wondering why there was no indication of this for the 3DS. After all, wouldn’t DS games be a better fit for the 3DS’ Virtual Console?

Seriously, they need to step up the releases. This tricking method is just hurting them!

Well the good news is they can up the resolution making the games look quite sharp, but would look awful if they use the standard DS resolution blown up.
