    This may be possible, but I doubt it. We'll just have to see.

    They obviously can make it work for 32 bit games if they have N64 "64-bit" running without a glitch, The bigger problem is is this going to be profitable, sure you could charge more but would it be worth the investment of buying up licenses for games that really arnt that old? I know they dont get a tone of money off me for VC because the fact i have most the old systems still why buy them twice?

    Now i doubt it will be able to emulate games that are 128 and higher like Dreamcast,GC,PS2,Xbox but everything prior to that shouldn't be a problem,the only issue is space not power.

    Anyone who has messed with homebrew and making roms and emulators to work on other systems knows you can go just about as high as the previous gens limits, you can't match it most of the time because of what it takes to run the emulator in the first place... I had some N64 games running on a Dreamcast just fine.

    VC has been doing well but i doubt you will make a tone of cash trying to cut in with "newer retro" lol oxymoronic statement in the first place... They should stick with trying to be creative and take advantage of the Wii-mote.
    If demand is high enough for a specific retro game that Nintendo can get rights for I'm sure they will do what they can.

    Its not like your gonna be playing your favorite Xbox/PS games on the Wii anytime soon.. Ms and Nintendo can't stop fighting over 007 Goldeneye, they arn't going to share anything they dont have to. And you cant just make a copy of a favorite game to try to get past exclusive titles or license agreements... They can probably get the rest of the SEGA system on there Maybe 3D0 that would be awsome considering they are the corny Shooter arcade "with live video" games from the 80's and 90's and would work great with the Wiimote!
    But beyond that what are they missing in VC in the previous gens taht they are "able" to get maybe atari? but you can buy a 100 in 1 of atari games for 20 bucks at any department store.

    exactly! what does a DVD cost when you buy in bulk? 10 cents at best?
    If you re-releasing a title it would be almost be more profitable to do a cheep game in a cheep package for these semi-retro re-makes. That way everyone see's them not just the online Wii owners. Kids with a spare 5-10 bucks would buy these up like candy, aparently even Developers dont have a clue how to make good shovel ware.. ha ha
