    Gamespot spent some time with the virtual console, here is their impression and confirmation of 5 titles for the console (not that there was any real doubt about these 5)

    I think the virtual console is a great idea, hopefully the games won't be too expensive so they'll provide a nice alternative to going out and laying down $50 for something new to play

    I looking forward to the first Zelda ever released. That has to be one of if not the best game ever created for the NES.

    Nintendo has come up with a winner this time; the Virtual Console concept alone will make the Wii worth buying, time to relive my glory days of gaming. And they will have it open to independent development; this is a great boom to gamers.

    Definately looking forward to finally being able to play Super Mario 64 and Link to the Past. Hopefully Sega will put all their old gems on there too- I'd like to see the Streets of Rage and Phantasy Star series.

    The Virtual Console is one of the things about the Wii that I am most looking forward to. I am a huge fan of the Mario and Zelda serieses (?), but I haven't played any of the older games in them. I am definetely going to play all those Super Mario and Legend of Zelda games that I missed out on.

    Did anyone hear about the rumored Dreamcast games on VC?

    If Nintendo does Dreamcast games, Miyamoto will be my new God

    With dreamcast games available on the Virtual Console, maybe this will bring back some classic sonic games as well as old school Sega gamers. How about NBA Jam and Mortal Kombat which I believe were originally sega games, not to sure though?

    I would agree that its possible to have playable dreamcast games even though it well take away alot of campacity on the hard drive

    Sorry, both MK and Jam were made by third party company Midway.

    while cool i don't think it is very feasible, the wii only has 512mb of storage for vc games and saves built in, granted there are two expansion bays, but dreamcast games were stored on cd so they can run up to 700mb which means also buying an expensive sd card per game you want to download from the dc (or a big one that might hold two games for even more money)

    Actually it was 1 GB, but I heard about an attachment for bigger memory too

    Most DC games only used about 100-250 MB
