Nintendo really needs to merge Wii VC and eshop.

I'm assuming we're only talking VC here, as obviously WiiWare and DSiWare are going to be tied to their respective consoles due to the difference in controls and screens.

I think the decision was basically made to make the Wii "backwards compatible" with home consoles, and the 3DS "backwards compatible" with handhelds. You might see a port of one show up on the other at times, but I think that in the end the goal of the virtual consoles is to make them feel as much like the original experience as possible, meaning console on console and handheld on handheld.
