    What are the chances that the handhelds will be on the virtual console, I see pretty good -
    1. Nintendo said ALL their games in the past 20 years,they have made games for their portables
    2. For the ds emulation, there is already an SD slot on the Wii so you can actually plug the ds games into the Wii and not have to download them
    3. They have done portable emulation on console already so why not again, less processing power to emulate, should be easier?

    they didnt say all the games, they just said all the games from certain consoles. i think they will leave the handheld backwards stuff for the DS and GBA

    Have you tried to get the old gameboy monochrome games at your local game shop, didn't think so, so the gba and ds are kinda useless without the cart, I know they are backwards compatable but seriously who keeps the old games laying around. Its good to have on download/storage so you have it there to reminiscene back on when you feel the urge.

    i didnt say you couldnt get the games. you probably just wont be able to download them off the wii. ive only heard that consoles will be on the VC.

    I wish they would. I've got loads of old GB and GBC which I can play on my GBA SP but its hard to find old GB and GBC games in he shops, so being able to download Gb and GBC games would be nice.

    Handhelds on a console? I'd be thinking more along the lines of something like games from the Neo Geo Pocket. I thought that was a great little handheld that just never got the chance to take off. Card Fighters Clash and it's hard to find sequel Card Fighters Clash 2 would be great additions to the virtual console program in my humble opinion.

    no but you could hook up your ds and then use that as an attachment to play gambeoy games because you would use the pad but play it on the big screen

    Right behind you.
    Well.... Theres always GameGear.


    ...Although Nintendo wasnt very specific if they're going to let you download gameboy games... but I know for a fact that some GameGear games will be downloadable...

    So, why download Sega's handheld and not your own? Beats me......
