    ..the launch of Super Mario Bros (for the Nes) on your VC :) along with Street Fighter II :D :

    Kinda sad to not be getting any free points, but it's cool to know 2 great games are coming to the VC on Christmas Day.

    i still see no point of buying an old game like vc games when you can get them for free off the internet

    The multiplayer games may be online playable in Q2 2007. We'll have to wait and see. Reggie hinted at Mario Kart online. I hope he means Mario Kart 64. Nintendo is also trying to obtain Golden Eye. My personal guess is they want it for possible online gameplay. It's not hard to port any of the snes mutliplayer games into online mode. We have stuff like Zbattle and Zsnes, Kailera, Mame. Last year Nintendo looked into Mame.

    Even if Nintendo says, "No." We may see people hacking their Wii's later for such usage.

    Suppose you gotta point, though I'll probably get a couple of games, just to see how it all works out :)

    I purchased the Gecko and will get the Action Replay soon to be able to run ROMs on the Wii. Been doing it on computers and the Dreamcast for years. I personally believe that it is worth the $5-$10 for a game to be able to boot up and play and not have to setup the gamecube (ie: plug in gamecube controller, put in game) for games that I will play a lot like Street Fighter II.

    The options for playing these old games are endless. I do believe that enough people will buy it on the VC to make it worth it to Nintendo. But not all the games are worth the price IMHO.

    Same reason people buy music (online or via CDs)...it's legal. Although there are still grey areas (if you already own the game, if you're "demoing" it, etc), downloading ROMs is illegal.

    I think I might wait to see if Allstars debutes for SNES rather than buying all of the mario games seperately.

    Well, not legally, not to mention, it won't be compatible with the Wii, Man, if the ROMS for PC emulators worked on the Wii, i'd throw my goldeneye on it, also, I think games play better on the Wii then a PC emulator

    Oh joy I have to pay for old games.
    Boooooooo this is no present this is just BS.
    A present is FREE and GIVEN to you not something AVAILABLE to you for MONEY.
    Well Im still hoping they'll give us a free game or two but if they dont I'll be dissapionted, because a Christmas Surprise is not suppose to cost money....... I thought this was nintendo not microsoft

    Is this a worldwide release or just part of the American Monday update?
