    I'm not sure if it will be a site or some sort of software you access. But it will be done through your Wii console. You will not only be able to download N64 games, but also NES, SNES, Sega (Genesis), and Turbo-Grafx games as well.

    Well one factor could be the size of the games... the N64 games were cartridge sized (with a maximum size of 32 mb if Im not mistaken), whereas the Dreamcast had 1gb sized discs!

    It would be really interesting to experience Dreamcast games on the wii... but then again the memory announced (512) is not enough for even one game!
    I also speak Yoshi, by the way.

    True, the discs had a lot of memory for the time, but most Dreamcast games didn't really take advantage of all that space. Besides, you can also use SD memory cards if you don't have room on the flash memory.

    Indeed, most discs didnt take full advantage of the space... but still, 600 mb for example are more than enough!! Plus how many SD cards could one have around if he wants to have, say, 3-4 DC games?? Then theres also the issue of the speed of an SD card, the issue of dishing out doe for extra SD cards, the issue of how much it would take for such games to be downloaded (because of their size) etc. etc.

    The only "hope" for such a possibility (which i would REALLY like to see on the wii) is a new method of compression so that game size could be decreased and therefore the above problems could be solved...

    The ps3 has broken down before it got to the starting line. The 360 had a head start but Wii will catch up in no time. There will be one winner in the end. Nintendo.

    I think Virtual Console will be great, being able to play most of those awesome games on SNES and N64 on the Wii. It definitely won't go the way of the Dreamcast 'cause it's only part of the system.
