    Due to Nintendos "the correct order" realese policy and high priceis for even the rubbish VC games here are some retro game packs that will save you a bit of cash

    Well that is fine and dandy if you have more than one system...which I dont!!! Only the Gamecube ones apply. This is like saying go buy a Genesis or SNES, and buy the games....

    all of these games r hard to find, not to mension the SNES!! Ebay would be the only place, better to get them for VC, makes the value of the Wii WAY higher when / if you go to sell it.

    There only hard to find if you live in a field some ware
    Or in a place with out shops and internet access (like a field)

    Yea, did anyone ever notice that there really wasn't really many retro game collection games for the wii besides sonic and a few others I do not know.

    It wouldnt be totally out of this world for someone to own a PSP or Xbox as well as a wii.

    Capcom collections sound nice.....SNK as well.

    Its too bad we have to go to other systems to get Nintendo games, because Nintendo is trying to make us buy Wally Bear and shit for $11 every week.
    I guess Ill buy an XBOX so I can play Bionic commando and my other favorite NES games...??????? .

    What's the betting most people simply ignore these collections and continue to buy VC games at a much higher price per game? I like to do my homework before shelling out almost 5 just for one Mega Drive / SNES game.

    The Capcom Collections are nice indeed (I have both). Note: Bionic Commando on that Capcom Collection is the slightly inferior (though still good) arcade version, and is basically a different game to the one on the NES.



    I never add friend codes.
