    This was answered in the Virtual Console forum.

    The answer is no, due to the fact that rom isn't the format Nintendo intends to use for their Virtual Console titles.

    For one, it's raw cartridge data, leaving games open to be copied from console to console. Second, they aren't compressed, meaning they'll require a decent amount of bandwidth to transfer and even more space to store.

    A proprietary format that can compress SNES games down to half a meg just seems more practical for everyone.
