    DreamCast on VC?

    I was downloading Super Mario World for the VC and I saw the Sega titles and the idea of playing Marvel vs Capcom 2 popped in my head. Is there any word if VC is going to have dreamcast games, or if we are going to be able to play DreamCast CDs on the Wii?

    Dreamcast games are probably too big to download onto the Wii's tiny memory, so I can't see it happening.

    I'm not sure how they could add DC backward compatibility, since the Wii doesn't support the DC's disc format (GD-ROM).

    I think the consoles that you can buy VC's from right now are the only councils that you'll ever be able to buy VC's from. They're about to make new VC games, I don't know why they would release games for a new council then and spend even more time working on VC's and not new software. Sad to say given the great tittles on the dream cast

    Actually they are adding new consoles (the Neo Geo and the MSX).

    But yeah, it would be great to play Dreamcast games, it's just not very feasible.

    I think it could happen; especially with NiGHTS: Journey of Dreams coming out. Publishing the original on the Virtual Console would be a good opportunity to cash in on the hype.

    Uhh NiGHTS was on the Saturn...
    Anyways Dreamcast was in the last generation. Their file size would fill the Wii's system memory after a few games, if not a single game. But Marvel vs Capcom 2 on the Wii sounds awesome........
    Spoiler Alert!

    The word you're looking for is "console"
