I wish Nintendo would just put the Wii's VC on the eShop.

Until the system is no longer relevant...


The wii VC shall move to the wii U VC.

It would depend on the game really. Some games aren't going to do as well on a handheld as opposed to a console. Especially multiplayer games. I think it's fine the way it is now.

Not to me it isn't.

I don't think the 3DS could handle all the Wii's VC games. On the other hand, what if the Wii Shopping Channel got all the 3DS eShop titles? (sorry if it's been said already)

Granted I don't expect N64 games would be workable on the 3DS

The only problem the 3DS will have with N64 emulation is the lack of buttons(some of which could be mapped to the touch screen). Other than that, the 3DS is PERFECTLY capable of running N64 emulation.

Seriously. I'm really disappointed that Nintendo didn't let 3DS owners link their systems to their Wiis and play NES and Super NES games. I guess that they needed an excuse for people to buy Excitebike twice.

I think there is a great deal of titles that would be awesome if they made it to the eShop from the Wii's virtual console. But Nintendo intends on keeping the home and portable separate, which to me continues to ignore the market that pirates on the PSP made obvious that there is a market for (old console games on portables).

Still, I suppose it was inevitable once the DRM/eShop set-up was announced. I think Nintendo is still behind on the times in terms of their web strategy, and it's largely due to them being a Japanese corporation (since the country is small most people meet those they want to play locally, and general acceptance of bad DRM schemes is higher there as well).

You would have to buy them again because Nintendo don't have linked accounts as such like Sony. I know it sucks but what can you do?

Nintendo would have to do updates for their Wii VC (Cutting N64 as those will not play right), link shops, remove point value from the Wii's VC with cash, have a way to link purchase history, and a whole lot of other things.


The N64 thing is silly, there are many games on PSN not playable on PSP, and I would think most fans would be happy with NES and SNES on the 3DS VC.

The other things you mentioned are improvements the VC desperately needs anyway.
