    The answer is yes! They mentioned it at E3 when they first showed off VC. Judging by the current rate of VC releases the next console will continue to release VC where Wii left off.

    The bigger question is... Do we wait 5 years, or 15 years to get all our VC games? Do we have to download the other 75% on a new console, or will they get them all out before then?

    That is a very valid point sagema, tbh i would like to see the Wii bring out at least 65% of the Vc liberary before moving them onto another console or maybe the new console could up date old games and rerelease them (crazy therory)

    Great news! I just wonder how they will transfer the games from the Wii to the new machine...

    My question is, why are you thinking about a new machine already?

    It's not going to happen for a long time. 5 years? That seems like such a short time for the Wii to be out for?

    How long was the Gamecube out for before the Wii was released?

    Just curious, but what about the PS2 before PS3? I heard that was the longest run before a new console.

    6 years between them, which was roughly about the same length of time as between the NES and the SNES.

    As for the Gamecube, that came out 5 years before the Wii. If we assume it'll be the same amount of time until the next Ninty console, we should be waiting for about 4 years yet.

    And it's a perfectly valid worry, I don't like the idea that in 5 years in the future I'm going to have to drag out my Wii from the cupboard every time I want to play VC games.



    I never add friend codes.

    Hmm fair point but lets not ponder on it until we hear about a new console and enjoy the Wii and look forward to the VC games we have now and sre still to come even if they arent always the games we want.

    The Wii will probably last 7 years. The PS3 is more likely to last 5 years, and the 360 6 years, maybe 7 as well. If you are deadlast, you are out fast. Only a few times in console history were there exceptions, and even then the ones that lasted past 7 years held on to a narrow amount of consumers.
