When do you think Nintendo will get around to putting GBA games on the VC?

Nintendo makes stupid decisions a lot of the time.

With four swords anniversary I think it was great that they made it free. But why in the world wouldn't you put it up for sale after the celebration was over so that other people can play it? The game is finished and I can tell you that my wife and three of our friends would like to buy so that we can play but Nintendo won't let us.

Whenever GBA games go up for Wii U, I'd expect it for 3DS around then.

What I have never understood is why they didn't just put the Ambassador games up on the VC after the event. They already had the games, why not make a mountain of cash on them?


They said they wouldn't when they announced the Ambassador program.

It'll be interesting to see what happens. Do they go back on their statement for the obvious cash they'd make, or do they maintain goodwill to a large-but-still-a-minority faction of 3DS users by not changing their minds?

Goodwill? It's not like we are asking for the games to be free.. we want to buy them! I love the selection and prices on the PSN store, I can buy my favourite PS1 games for 3.99 and the transaction is forever connected to my account, the eshop is extremely overpriced and console-bound, ridiculous.

Goodwill as in keeping their 'promises', not giving away free games.

Personally I'd be fine if they made the Ambassador titles available for everyone, though I shudder to think of the fallout the entitled people will cause when Nintendo 'backtracks'.

I wonder how much Nintendo loses every day to people willing to pirate since they won't put the stuff on the shop.
