No, it's not pointless at all. All those hundreds upon thousands'a melee lovers don't give a damn 'bout the old stages, they give a damn 'bout melee. Every single Smash game is radically different from the others 'cause of all the game mechanics. They all play incredibly different from each other, despite the most base gameplay mechanics remaining similar (damage foe, send 'em sailing off the stage). Whether or not SSB4 will be even better competitively than Melee and superior casually than Brawl, people will still play Melee. And as a result, there'l be demand for it to be downloadable since there're only so many physical game copies. Melee deserves a VC release. Each Smash Bros. game isn't a sequel or an improved re-release, they're all vastly unique experiences.
