    Dreamcast on Wii?

    Wondering if there will be any DC games on the VC. The DC is the most underrated console of all time.....games that would be awsome are..
    -Powerstone
    -Soul Calibur
    -Sonic Adv
    -Metropolis Street Racer
    -Jet Grind Radio
    -Skies of Arcadia
    -Shenmue
    -Marvel vs Capcom
    -Street Fighter Alpha 3
    -Quake 3
    -Virtua Tennis 2k2

    Hope the DC makes the cut...

    Its not going to happen. Mainly because to do so the Wii would have to use Software emulation to emulate the DC. The DC is a 6th gen console (along with the GameCube, PS2 and Xbox) Software emulation tends to be about 2 generations behind hardware. So 5th gen consoles are possible to emulate on the Wii (eg, the N64)
    The Wii would just not have the grunt to emulate a Dreamcast. Also there is the size of the ROMs. DC games came on GD-ROMs which hold about 1.2Gb.

    Shame really, looks like the Dreamcast will continue to go ignored for a while longer. At least there's a possibility for Saturn games.



    I never add friend codes.

    but couldn't the games be converted to be compatible with Wii. I mean PSP can officially run converted PS1 games fine, maybe this could be possible with the Wii with dreamcast. Most DC iso's aren't that big, but you will need an extra SD card.

    i could list a few u could try, but i would be breaking board rules, so im not going to discuss it. anyways, saturn games would be cool. i really dout it would appear on virtual consold cause of game size being a CD. but nintendo would be really cool if u could buy USB port external cd drives that play sega games like Sega CD/ Sega Saturn / Sega Dreamcast, but theres only 2 usb ports, so u might have to use 2 or 1 at a time.

    Yeah, isn't the Saturn represented for the VC? If N64 games can be made available (as and when Nintendo decide to offer us some), why couldn't the Saturn titles? Can't be a rights issue, because the Mega Drive/Genesis is represented.
