Snes Emulation is nothing and clearly the GBA VC is ready to go since ambassadors have 10 games. But even if they hold to the ambassador exclusivity for those titles, where are the rest? Why not fill in the release droughts with sure-fire sellers? Why waste everyone's time with extremely dated NES and GB titles?

I read some blip about GBA games coming to the Wii-U VC. THE WII-U!! What is going on??

This could be one of the issues.

Cashflow problems. Namely what to do with all the incoming cashflow that would result from SNES and GBA games being released on the eShop. It would be too overwhelming for Nintendo to handle and thus we are doomed.

Possible Legal Issues for some games, maybe they are planing the merge both eShop and Wii U's shop, laziness (with how we have only 6 out of 10 ambassador NES games finished over the course of a year doesn't help)

this is why legit emulation sucks... i shouldn't have to wait years hoping to get a game i may never get. And no i don't emulate games unless i already own legit copies(which is perfectly legal according to the ESA's website)

It just seems so simple to me to supplement revenue with these VC titles people actually want. They literally just slap the rom in there, bug check and make a few banners and icons. It's like the 3d classics. They stopped making them because they weren't that profitable but that's cause they put out crap like Xevious instead of Mario.

I've never understood Nintendo logic. Almost 2 years in, what are they waiting for?

there logic is "let's wait several years to release every game people will want so that'll buy other games while waiting" and every time they start vc on a new platform they hit the reset button.

It makes no sense to me...

I wish Nintendo would hurry up with this too.

I for one don't want them yet, the GB, NES and 3DSWare games are murdering my wallet with games I want right now. In fact for me the eshop is worse than the Steam Summer/Winter sales at the moment.
