Looks like it's only Europe at first.
I can't find the source of this quote, but it's popping up everywhere, from Bala Keilman the CEO of Commadore Gaming
By working with Nintendo of Europe, we are ensuring that future generations of gamers can play some of the best and most popular titles that kick-started the computer games revolution and so keep the C64 legacy in gamers hearts.
It is universally believed to mean that C64 titles are definitely heading the way of the VC.
Good news then!
500 points is a bit steep for games that cost £1.99 originally.
I can't think of one C64 game worth playing ... this is bad news as it will only stem the flow of better games.
500 points for C64 games? Rip-off!
Normally I'd say the more consoles, the better, but I'm not so sure about this one...
I never add friend codes.

How is that a rip off? They are more advanced than NES games but are priced the same.
AAAAA! I'll never forget the feeling of playing Ghouls N' Ghosts on the original C64! You had to run the ANALOG CASETTE all the way to the end, then run it backwards and (if u were lucky!!) then u could play the game on your tv!!

So instead of more SNES, and N64 games, we get another console. Computer games? I don't know much about the C64, other than it's really freaking old. It's great that we have all these consoles. Now Nintendo should focus on releasing more Virtual Console games in general. I don't want to wait until year 15 for Chrono Trigger.
perhaps nintendo has nothing to do with moving the games over to VC... it woiuld be the commodore gaming group via nintendo's technology?Originally Posted by sagema
