More Wii Virtual Console games for Japan & Europe compared to America

After the announcement of 30 American Virtual Console retro games coming to the Wii download service this year, you might think that would be the same worldwide, but you'd be wrong!

I want those games, too! I'll probably be buying a different game every day for the first couple of weeks... unless there aren't any good choices!

Thats kind of why I hold back on buying forun things like that because we dont get everything they do in there country. Usally they end up having more games there for it.

Retro gaming is bigger in Japan, so I guess they have more staff working on converting their games. I hope we get more soon over here, though. If they can keep up with 10 per month, I guess that will be OK.
