ACtivision own bond rights for NEW releses! Goldeneye is an old one witch Nintendo owns the rights! If Nintendo want they can keep selling goldeneyes for Nintendo64...
And the VC Games arenīt new releses.. are the same old games. Nintendo is just selling the right to play the same old games for the same old consoles on the wii. They arenīt relesing goldeneye for wii or for virtual console, they are allowing you to play goldeneye for Nintendo64 on the wii. Thatīs something completly diferent.
Activision could say something if Nintendo start selling goldeneye for the wii, but VC games arenīt VC games.. they are games for their old systems playing on the wii throw VC. Any game for NES, SNES or N64, made by any company can be played on any console if Nintendo allows! Nintendo owns the playabily rights of the games.
Thatīs why you arenīt buying the games, but the right to play the games on the wii (this aplys for any game on VC). Nintendo owns that right and they are selling it to you.. not the game, the right to play it on the wii.
And thatīs why if you buyed SNES games or N64 games you have to pay for it again (if you want to play them on the wii), cause when you buyed the game, you buyed it and the right to play it on that perticular system (wii not included).
If you have any doubts read the VC license contract or the manual of your old games.. Thatīs all in there!
