I own 50+ games, and I don't feel that your complaint is legit. I guess owning 50+ games doesn't really add anything to your argument... Maybe you should bring up the fact that you make more money than other forum members.

You're going to need to post sources regarding your other comments since Nintendo never made any official statements prior to today about the implementation of GamePad support for Wii U VC games or potential pricing. They have only made statements regarding the development or potential plans of the Wii U VC, and you should never make decisions based off of non-specific statements such as those. It's not Nintendo's fault that you bought their system under mistaken assumptions.

You say they are small, minor features. If so, then why are they so important to you? If they are, in fact, that important, and they are features for which Nintendo has to spend additional development resources and time (whether on games or the Wii U VC in general), then be prepared to spend some money.


Actually it would be, part of advertisement is getting people to make assumptions that don't pan out, unless of course you are willing to outright lie. Nobody saw them charging to use your digital games on the new emulator and they hinted that they were going forward with the whole internet thing and wouldn't be in the dark ages still.


You should check the modality of your statements. I certainly figured that there would a charge for the Wii U VC. I don't think many people got the impression that games such as NSMBWU or Nintendo Land would utilize online multiplayer. Considering Nintendo has previously featured online multiplayer, I'm not too worried that games like Mario Kart of SSB won't feature it.

Then don't pay and play them on the wii mode.


This is a dumb argument. I bought the Wii U for the games and because Nintendo told us we would be able to play VC games on the GamePad.


Again, source? The first official confirmation of this feature was today.

I remember reading they were talking about it but I'm too lazy to go find it. It is only $1 but I wish it added more too.

I'll do the work for you: http://kotaku.com/5973939/when-it-comes-to-the-wii-us-online-store-nintendo-is-dropping-the-ball

First, this was 2 weeks ago. Second, it's even prefaced by "We do not have any specifics to share at this time." Finally, this is included in the article: "Excellent news. Off-TV gameplay is the best reason to get a Wii U, and the thought of playing games like Wind Waker or Skies of Arcadia on my GamePad is already making me drool, even if Nintendo does make me pay something like $10 per game for the privilege."

They said they were working on the ability a couple of weeks ago, but they never said it'd be free.

And guess what? You'll be able to. You'll just have to buy Wii U VC. Why is that hard to understand?

Why can't we have a real discussion about this? Instead we have trolls and fanboys clogging the tubes.

I am still peeved about this and the biggest issue with yesterdays ND is that I have seen most places cover the VC fees than the games that were announced. joystiq, kotaku, cnet are all talking about the fees instead of discussing the 2 new Zelda games, Mario Galaxy 3 or Mario Kart 8. Those should be the highlight but instead we are arguing over a $1 fee that shouldn't be there in the first place.
