    Newsflash: Game Freak can release new games rather than resorting to remakes. We saw this in Generation V.
    I never said they couldn't release new titles but remakes we all know while there great and all make Nintendo and Game Freak Boat loads of Cash which would make the more cash than the VC could

    Remakes also require considerable time and resources (read the HGSS interviews), which ports wouldn't. You should compare the profitability of remakes to that of new games.

    Those Pokemon games for the DS arent even that old, and are still playable on the 3DS. I doubt they will be remade anytime soon, even then, I dont see this interfering with them remaking the games in the future, so I dont see the harm in putting them on the Virtual Console and tweaked to work with Pokemon Bank( though I somehow doubt they would since they didnt make D/Pt and HG/SS work with it in the first place but that's a different subject) I also somehow doubt they would stop 3DSes from being sold, I imagine many people still own their copies of these games and even if they sold their DSes, can play them on a 3DS without problem, but it might be a nice idea for people that own a Wii U that wants to play these games on VC or maybe dont own these games at all. I just dont think it can hurt.

    The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time was ported onto the Wii's Virtual Console and was still remade for 3DS. Sonic the Hedgehog was ported to the 3DS' Virtual Console and still received a 3D remake on the same console.

    And the four SMB NES titles were put on the Wii's Virtual console before Super Mario All-Stars got ported to a disc

    When I saw Wii U, I had wished for an accessory to play DS/3DS on it, though it sounds impractical. (The Game Boy Player was my favorite part of the Gamecube)
    This is... well, it's a good start.

    My brother thinks the Wii U is Nintendo's last traditional home console, that they're gearing up for all future platforms to be hybrid handheld/consoles, which you can play on the go or on TV. Sort of like a Wii U / 3DS mashup.

    I don't subscribe to that belief, but DS titles on Wii U certainly lend it credence.

    I hope the prices aren't too exorbitant. VC titles are ridiculously expensive.

    They said in the investor's meeting that they're working on improving crossplay between the 3DS and Wii U, that is more likely to be the reason we're seeing DS titles on the Wii U. The way they were talking, they want to make that hybrid console sometime in the future, but they're not doing it next gen (maybe the technology isn't quite there yet).

    Are they putting DS games on the 3DS virtual thingy too? It seems like something they could make available on both things (for people who don't have both), an/or make ds games playable on both. (if you buy it on one it works on the other, sort of like what the playstation has been doing with it's current handheld?). It'd probably give them more sales anyway..

    It is worth mentioning that Junichi Masuda has previously said that he believes the series should remain portable and that Red/Blue have yet to be released on the 3DS Virtual Console, so this is pretty unlikely to happen, but what do you think of the idea?

    Firstly, as most people with a Wii U/Looking to get one have probably played all the DS games they like and likely still own them. I don't think this is going to sell consoles.
    I think Nintendo's motives for this tie in with their lawsuits against Modchip companies and sellers; they want to demonstrate that DS games are not adandonware.
    Though this does raise the question of why aren't N64 games on there yet.

    Secondly, I'm curious to how 3D games like Metroid Hunters would translate to a 1080p screen from the DS's tiny resolution.

    Thirdly, I'm still waiting for Gamecube VC as I missed out on the GC (My main reason for getting a Wii was backwards compatibility, but by the time I got one in mid 2007 the Gamecube games were gone). Though I guess a lot of the ones I want probably wont get licensed for VC like the Zoids game and the Rogue Squadron games.

    #3 is, I want to think, also partly why it's in planning. It's for new players who missed the DS or certain games. (Where I live, they're getting sparse in places, except mostly for Pokémon Gen 5)

    After all, most VC games I have are SNES, a system I was too young to own.

    I had this thought earlier: PokéTransfer is a separate app than Pokémon Bank. At first, I thought this was really annoying (As it can make transferring fiddly) but then I realised: What if the decision behind this is because there are plans to release Pokémon games on the Virtual Console (or as a fail-safe in case they decide to), giving players a one-way transfer system by using PokéTransfer to send Pokémon over to Bank, but obviously lacking Bank compatibility themselves due to the inability to place newer Pokémon into older games?

    That's why GC games are a more important priority. My sole reason for buying a Wii and the reason I'm disappointed with it is revolves around the Gamecube. I hoped to play GC games but in 2007 there were no Gamecube games to be found. I also expected the Wii to have good games like the Gamecube did but that turned out to be a vain expectation. (This was followed by me hacking my Wii and using it illegally till it broke and Nintendo swapped it with one that can't read DVDs).

    It is very easy to get your hands on a second hand DS cart or download DS software (Don't ask me for links). Assuming Nintendo wasn't planning on putting them on VC they would be considered "abandonware" which means the copyright holders no longer sell the software and people on the internet don't expect legal trouble by downloading it.

    Who is making sales by the Wii U's lack of Gamecube games?
    According to the Dolphin Emulator forums; Dolphin Emulator works best with Intel processors.
    So the answer is Intel makes sales, not Nintendo.

    Sorry for the rant.
