My theory is this, Sega and Hudson Soft happen to be the developers for the respective Genesis and TG16 titles. Both Sega and Hudson don't have a lot going on in terms of developing many brand new titles, right? So, they probably have a lot more time to consult negotiations with Nintendo about liscensing downloads for the Virtual Console.Originally Posted by durabull
As for the other more successful third party developers, Capcom and Konami, Nintendo was probably willing to press a little harder for Street Fighter II and Castlevania IV because it only enhances the equity of the Wii's uses in the eyes of the consumer. Those were more or less staple franchises, they are still making CV and SF games. Sorry to make the responose so long.
