Guess rebuying VC games isn't the worst after all

This really sucks. Hopefully Microsoft does like it did with the 360 and keeps backwards compatibility. If not, Wii U is gonna be the only BC system for a long time.

Metroid Zero Mission and Super Metroid are some of the finest 2D games ever made and are the best in the series.
Metroid Fusion is pretty cool I guess.

I expected this for some reason.

This sucks for Sony. I guess I'm keeping my PS3 then, not going to lose all my purchases.

I would hope since the games are tied to an ID that the games would be offered free or with a discounted price for people who own the software. Only time will tell, but nintendo was able to do it without IDs for what it's worth.

And when it comes down to it, I'd rather have PS3 BC on PS4 than Wii BC on Wii U. So many more worthwhile games on PS3 than the handful of gems on Wii. This truly is a boneheaded move

I disagree with the handful of games vs. ps3. I personally liked wiis library better, but thats all opinion. What is important is BC and transfers for early adopters of a system. I skipped ps3 and went wii/360 and was hoping for BC, but instead I will get the ps3 for cheap and play the handful of games I missed.
