    I think that, after they've released a larger catalogue of games, Nintendo should start releasing bundles for the VC.
    E.g. Sonic bundle with all of those games in for a price cheaper than buying the games seperately.
    Who's with me?

    Hmmm...thats interesting. I really doubt Ninty will do it, seeing as how cheap they already are.

    I dont really care as long as Metroid and Super Metroid both show up in the near future.

    I agree it's a great idea but I tend to doubt they'll do it. Let's be honest... most people who like one Sonic game will buy them all bundle or not. Ninty knows this and I can't blame them for taking advantage of that! They don't really gain or lose money either way in the end.
    I read an interesting interview with somebody from Konami at ign.com where they asked about the 100 point hike for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles on the VC and they explain it has to do with publishing rights etc. so when you figure stuff like that gets into it, I couldn't see them cutting prices on some of the games. Like Levesque said (btw when the hell is HHH coming back?!?) the games are already cheap as is. There wouldn't be a HUGE discount either way. I do think they consider stuff like this though. Just cuz you don't see changes happening all the time doesn't mean they're not thinking about them.

    that would be great
    all 3 Bonks for 1500 points (saving of 300) would be music to my ears!

    Bundle packs are a nice idea. But Nintendo will calculate how much they may lose before doing that though. But I will definitely get more VC games which are bundled like that.

    We havent been given any info as of late...Its still hopeful that he'll be back for SummerSlam.

    He is a proffessional wrestler. One of the best heels (bad guys) of today, and in some people's opinion, of all time. Depending on your age, you may remember him as the guy who's career took off with D Generation-X, a clan of fighters (led by Shawn Michaels, and later, Triple H) who disrespected all rules and basically did whatever they wanted. Some of us younger wwe fans just see him as an incredible single's competitor, The King of Kings, Cerebral Assassin, or simply The Game. He has held 10 World Titles and is currently out of action due to a full tear of his second quad (he already tore his other).

    He is my favorite wrestler, and (as pathetic as it may sound) my idol. I am currently training to become a professional wrestler, and depending on when Triple H retires, and how fast my career takes off, I hope to some day meet him and (dare I say) hopefully have some matches with him.

    [Right now is when everyone is supposed to flame me for watching pro wrestling and try to convince me (even though I already know) that its fake and not to watch it anymore]

    I myself love HHH. I live in his homestate as a matter of fact and have seen him quite often when he lived here. I used to drive by his house all the time when he lived in Bedford, NH. I actually remember him starting off in WCW wrestling under his real name. So I will not flame you...as I share your interests in HHH. He is and always will be my all time favorite wrestler. I have never hated the guy at all. I cannot wait till he comes back.

    :shocked: you have NO IDEA how jealous I am. Youve seen him in person? Have you met him? That would be pretty cool.

    Yeah I've actually seen him working out at Golds Gym where I live. I turned around and he was like right there. It was crazy. I've also seen him and Chyna at Best Buy when I used to work there. He sold his house in Bedford a few years ago. Probably around the time him and Stephanie got married. He had an awesome house from what I could tell. My gf would always get mad when I drove by there :lol: I know he is going to be in Nashua today (about 20 minutes from where I live) at a baseball game I believe.

    This thread has gotten weird... cuz I was gonna say all the stuff about him in Nashua. That's kinda creepy. I didn't know the baseball game bit, but yeah he's always at Gold's Gym cuz I think he owns it or something. At least he used to. A loooooooooong time ago my brother worked at Sports Authority in Nashua and he used to see them there occasionally. I've never seen him but when I used to where a DX shirt, a lot of people in Nashua would say they'd seen him recently or whatever. Small world I guess.

    Bundles would be a great idea! I think Nintendo would sell even more if they offered a weekly bundle download option. It would also make people play games they didn't know were good. Like Ogre Battle 64 (Not out yet).

    I hadn't thought of it that way actually... I was thinking bundles of franchises but if they released each week as a bundle at a discounted price, I'd be up for that and they WOULD end up making more probably cuz it's the only way some games might EVER get downloaded AT ALL.

    I think you've got something there, having a grouping of related games for one console is a great idea, it will take a long time to download, but then, like mentioned before, it will cost less points to group them all together, also, it will save channels for other Wii software and VC games

    Knowing Nintendo though, don't think they'd do it, but a great idea nonetheless

    Buy three get one free for the Wii, hehehe... :lol:


    Joking aside, I think it's a great ideal. Nintendo may even sell more VC games then they are selling now if they make bundles. Think, if I were to buy Mario Games I would only buy Mario World, Yoshi's Island and Super Mario Bros 3. That would come up to 2100 points but if Nintendo made a Bundle (Mario Bros 1-3, Mario World and Yoshis Island) for 2500 points I'd definately get that instead. I think the same would go for someone getting just the two Mario's on the SNES for 1600 points would just go ahead a pitch in the extra 9000 points for three more Mario games to make it complete for a collection...

    I don't see this happening anytime soon but Nintendo may take this into consideration if there are high demands for it or if they realize this may bump up their sales on VC titles for end of 2007, early 2008...
