    Yeah. If the can code the games to a miniscule size, then hopefully they can get some GC games up there.

    i strongly second that...all of em...game boy, game boy color and advance

    there was a SWEET Kid Icarus game on the original Game Boy i had that i wouldnt mind playing again...forgot the subtitle of it

    i also used to have a Super Game Boy it was a SNES cartridge by which you put ur regular GB games into and you could play them on the SNES...duno why that came up butttt

    GC games on Virtual Console would be dumb and pointless, you can already play GC games on the Wii. Gameboy games? Great idea. Might happen some day. Super Game Boy was awesome, so was Game Boy Player for GC.

    GCN Games...

    IF they had GCN games on the VC, Compared to N64 games they would probably cost 2000 points or more, I can already find GCN games for less than 10 bucks in some places... :wink:

    Well if you haven't heard Nintendo has stop production of gamecubes AND gamecube games, so some of the games may be hard to find.And yes I know you can play gamecube games on the wii, why not be able to download them for like 1500 wii points?

    More likely Nintendo and Sega may reprint some GC and Sega Dreamcast games to play on the Wii. Nintendo has already done ithis with games like Resident Evil 4. Sega has remade Saturn games like Nights for the Wii. I also heard something about House of the Dead coming to the Wii.

    They'll extend to Gameboy and other consoles. It's practically a matter of when rather than maybe.

    Nah, considering the Wii plays Gamecube software, there would be no real reason to do it, even after GC games are unavailable.

    they should re-release some games. i missed the whole GC bus (was a poor college student and liked PC better). it would be kinda like what xbox did with their "platinum" games.

    they should get the dreamcast and/or sega cd games to work, or re-release them and edit them to work with the wii

    Yeah, exactly. I highly doubt they would try to put GC games into the VC considering they already worked on making the Wii backwards compatible for the GC.

    Sooner or later Gamecube games will slowly dissapear from the markets.(due to stop of Gamecube production) Why use disc compatability as an excuse if you cant find any of the games for it.Im just saying maybe later this could be a suggestion.

    $$$$$ - money is a good reason to put GC games on the VC........

    its not like its going to cost Nintendo to make games avail on the VC.......I really think they are selling those Wii point cards like crazy.

    A lot of people never bought a GC and would like to download games on their Wii.

    Those of you who say there is no reason to put GC games on the VC forget what drives all of this............$$$$$$$$$$$$
