    Sorry, no one knows when it'll appear.

    P.S.: Have you ever heard of a full stop, also known in America as a period? They're supposed to go on the end of sentences where you're not asking a question or implied to be shouting something.

    They'd have to translate all of the games. I wish they'd port some of the older computer games, though. There were some cool Commodore 64 games I used to play like Law of the West.

    Also, there are a few other games I'd love to try out like Rad Warrior/Sacred Armour of Antiriad which is supposed to be a game similar to Metroid but made before Metroid was even released.

    A computer from Japan. Never got popular in the US. The major reason why people want to have it on VC is because of Metal Gear II. The Metal Gear II we got for NES was a game made by another company and stinks from what I've heard. The special edition of Metal Gear Solid 3 had it as an unlockable.

    Ha period,Anyway the msx is not even that good the controller was to heavy and cheap the games were either crap master system or nes ports,Plus the early metal gear games are very overratted.

    They weren't ports on a lot of occasions. Besides Metal Gear there was Castlevania which was called Vampire Killer on the MSX. This version wasn't exactly a port. It actually added some extra rpg stuff to the gameplay. You bought stuff from merchants, found hidden keys to open treasure chests with extra weapons and shields.

    Read up on it. It's actually a deeper game than the NES Castlevania

    Actually, in most cases it was the NES and Master System games that were the ports, e.g. Metal Gear, Zanac, Parodius, and Puyo Puyo were all initially released for it.

    The dreamcast came out to late to be on the vc,plus since the wii has limited power it would take up to much space to have dreamcast games.
