To clarify:

1. This charge only applies to users who purchased the game on their Wii and transferred it to their Wii U. Otherwise, the game will be priced at $4.99 for NES games and $5.99 for NES games, with import games having a $1.00 surcharge.
2. It's an item on the eShop. There is no mandatory charge and download. In other words, it's optional. You don't have to buy it. You're not being forced to-- okay moving on.
3. You can play your existing Wii Virtual Console games in Wii Mode as you were already doing before the Wii U Virtual Console was announced.

For those who may not know, purchasing the Wii U version of Virtual Console games adds Miiverse, off-TV play, and Suspend/Restore points, as well as Wii U Pro Controller support. Wii U Virtual Console games are already compatible with the Wii Remote (Plus) and Classic Controller (Pro).

There's no misconception about it. People know how it works and know that it's idiotic.
I want to move to a nice, quaint house in the suburbs with the T-Mobile girl and make lots of babies with her.

I'm not mad. I'm just getting annoyed by the amount of incompetent people misunderstanding the facts.

Anyone who's willing to pay $4.99 for a NES game or $5.99 for a SNES game has no right to complain about $1.00-$1.50 anyway, and this is coming from someone who actually grew up with Nintendo. That's an absurd asking price for games anywhere from roughly 12-26 years old.

But "Wii Mode" was the most idiotic idea ever.

If I want to play it without paying, I can go to Wii mode. If I want to play the enhanced versions, I have to pay a dollar to a dollar fifty. No one thinks thats idiotic. Makes perfect sense.

Don't have much of a life outside of gamefaqs do you? If you did...I don't see how this could bother you.

It's technically not a patch, it's a different version of the game.
