    Toned down?

    I think they need to release games before they can be toned down

    If the VC hasn't been as successful as nintendo hoped, it is their fault. The VC is probably the main reason that I bought my wii originally, only to find out immediatley that there weren't many games available. They only release a decent game once every couple of months (in my opinion).

    The majority of wii owners probably don't get the emails saying what new games are released this week, or if they do, they don't read them. I believe the typical user goes to the wii store once when they first purchase the console and get it online, then rarely (if at all) afterward.

    Just build up a library of good titles and they will be downloaded. It doesn't take much to prepare a game for VC. Everyone knows there is no change or improvement to any game on there (which would be nice). Virtual Console should be about nostalgia; people buying games that used to be awesome! Not a bunch of crappy shooters from legacy systems that no one ever played.

    I think the VC was actually MORE successful than they expected. Look how fast people were running out of storage and begging for some sort of solution (and that was well before WiiWare came out). If they thought people would be downloading so many games, they would have had a better storage solution from the start.

    That's my theory at least.

    Most of these games aren't gamers usually get excited over. Their just not a very healthy selection of games.

    I don't believe this at all. It's just some phone/email rep at Nintendo. These reps(Nintendo, Microsoft, Sony) are notorious for just giving their opinions. They don't know and they don't control what does/does not get released on these services. They are just customer-service reps.

    you gotta be freakin kidding me..... Virtual Console is the best thing on the wii next to
    wii games, personally...WiiWare sucks. If they dont have enough good games on VC,
    its theyre fault. i could name alot of good games that are being left out of VC, and could name alot of games on WiiWare that are better being left out.....


    Conclusion: they are crazy
