Question about the 30 cent deals.

#1Banjo2553Posted 1/27/2013 11:56:06 PM
They all seem to be games already on the Wii's VC. So I'm just wondering, if you already have downloaded the game on the Wii's VC and want to transfer it with all the added WiiU features, what will you have to pay? The normal $1.00, or just the 30 cents? My guess is on the 30 cents but I just want to make sure.

The Wii U VC is not fully implemented yet. The 30cent games are a trial of the service, and as such, I'd wager that whether or not you own the game on Wii VC, it'll still be 30 cents.

But if we buy the 30 games, will we still have to pay the $1 upgrade fee?

You're not buying it on the Wii's VC, you're buying it on the Wii U's VC.

In other words, if you buy it on the Wii's VC, and then transfer it to the Wii U, it'll cost you $6.00, but if you buy it just on the Wii U's VC, it'll cost you $0.30. Even if you already have it on the Wii's VC, it'll be cheaper to just buy it on the Wii U's VC than transfer it.

The 30 cent games are 30 cents. Period.

The 30 cent/pence/yen games are Wii U VC from what I figure, if you were to buy say Balloon Fight on the Wii and transfer then yes you would have to pay the fee, but buy on the Wii U`s store and you will get for 30 cents/pence/yen etc.

Also TC I`m pretty sure if you`ve already bought it, you will be paying the 1$ transfer fee and not 30 cents as that is a purchase price for the Famicom 30th on the Wii U`s store.

My God.

Okay, since a FEW people in this thread STILL don't understand the BASIC ENGLISH used to tell us how it works:

-You can transfer your Wii VC to the Wii U for free.
-If you want versions of those games that make use of the GamePad and have MiiVerse functionality, you will have to pay a fee that's 20% of what the regular price for that game is for a second copy of the game.
-For a limited time, seven Wii U VC titles will be available at different times for 30 cents.
-If you already own THESE games for the Wii, you can download them on the Wii U during their sale periods for 30 cents. If you MISS this sale period, when VC officially opens, you can download them at the 80% discount price. You will not have to pay any "upgrade fee" if you get them at 30 cents BECAUSE YOU'RE BUYING THE UPGRADED WII U PORT.

Thanks! Pretty helpful posts, especially darkjedilink. I knew most of the points you brought up, but I wasn't sure about how the "trial" would affect the upgrade fees. Good to know.
