    Pixelation wouldn't be a problem, take a look at any of the PC emulator's that are out and you'll know what I mean. A simple AA filter and all the jaggies disappear! My personal favorite is Super Eagle. I can play at 1024x768 and it looks smoother then it ever did on a GameBoy, which is the same resolution used by HDTV. Normal TV's are 800x600.

    I hate to admit it but the main reason I want it is so I could have my complete Zelda collection on one system

    and the fact that DS plays GBA games means they would lose out on potential sales on GBA games (the actual cartridges..)

    also, does no-one think the idea of using a 'virtual' console to re-create a piece of hardware that was made for backward compatibilty a pointless idea? why not just do the games directly? (if doing it at all...)

    normal TV's are 640x480 actually hence 480i and 480p and 16x9 widescreen HDTV's are usually closer to 1280x768. Don't ask me why this translates to 720p though. And old school PAL and NTSC resolutions were different as well, I think NTSC is 576x480 and PAL is 640x480, hence why PAL games came with black borders top and bottom.

    Anyway appologies for the off topic rant, I am kinda ambivalent about this idea. Handheld games should really be played on a handheld, but then Gameboys and games aren't as common as they used to be so having the option wouldn't hurt, it would be nice if we could download em on VC then upload em to our DS's for a real handheld experience. (wishful thinking I know.)
    Next there will be a big hoopla about how the Wii isn't actually fun to play, as the funomoter2000 wasn't included in the hardware, Nintendo were lying to us this whole time and we weren't having 'real' fun it was all fake and tacky fun.

    hmm yeah i dunno... ive not been into nintendo handhelds since gameboy pocket... really wish i had a ds tho.

    Im just hoping for DS to start communicating with my wii, cuz then ill have to get one It'd be nice to see some basic stuff.. like ds for a vc controller for some of the games. Or heck even ds games showing up on my tv screen.. 2 screens to three.. not needed yea i know but still. I'm shure it'd be cool to see your ds mario runing around on your big 60" tv

    With handheld games on the wii, it would be more material on "gameplay > graphics" to throw in sony fanboys' face.

    i am sure when the vc picks up and and they start running out of stuff for the nes and snes and 64 that everybody wants they will break out the gameboy games. and maybe sega will show us some gamegear not that their were any good games on it.

    "Shinobi" on GG was awesome,on VC with a save ability would be great.
