    Virtual console is a scam. You can download n64 emulators and other emulators that allow you to play those games for free!

    True but you need a good PC and a decent pad.

    Also you need a copy of the original game in order to own said roms or else your breaking the law

    Those free emulators are mostly illegal. Expect this thread to be locked soon.

    i Say that VC is more of a... RIP OFF.

    lol

    not a scam. VC is the legal way to reminisce back to the old times and replay your favorite classic games that rarely or barely exists today.

    Oops, my mistake, Prinny is quite correct. The VC is itself an emulator, after all.

    i think its a total rip off, not because emulators, but you can buy the original game, for like half the price. well i can and so can the whole of UK at least, from second hand shops.

    i way prefer playing these games on the consoles they were made for aswell, controller suits them way more, especially the N64 games.

    1) Emulators are not legal unless you own the game and have it in your possession at the time you play. If you don't, it's a crime and it's punishable by law.

    2) It's a lot more convenient to have it all set up on one gaming system, rather then going and having to get one online. It's also more fun, due to the heightened graphical detail.

    3) If it was a rip-off, I doubt thousands of people would of paid money. You're not the first to accuse this and be proven wrong.

    how have we been proven wrong?

    people buy them because they are there.

    many people dont buy them becauase the steep preices, i bought them but think they are a rip off.

    1) They are legal its owning the rom files that isnt (the roms are the game)

    2) True
    But the wiimote/classic controller isnt ideal for most games
    Try geting hold of Alien soilder, Geoman any neogeo games and Syn and punishment (in English)
    Trust me there expensive
    Yeah but whats the point
    You have it on a console

    N64 Emulators suck. There's always some sort of graphic spec missing. Also they lag so much. I'd prefer to own it on VC. I mean, you'd have to be really f***ing cheap to not fork over $10.
