Are you going to upgrade Wii VC content?

Yes! ALL of them I can.
Yes, but only select titles.
Nope. Don't want to spend the $1 to $2.
Didn't buy Wii VC. (but own Wii)
See Resultz

Wii U Virtual Console is finally here.

Things to know:

  • off-TV Gamepad support for all games
  • MiiVerse Communities per game
  • Games have new save feature (restore points)
  • Customize your controls - remap any button!
  • $1 NES and $1.50 SNES upgrade prices for people who own same game on Wii and have transferred to Wii U.
  • GBA and N64 games coming at later time. (unknown if rest of VC consoles coming)
  • PAL 50Hz issue. It appears that Nintendo is making it a case by case scenario if they will use the NTSC or PAL version. However, it will be stipulated in eShop when you go to download the game. It also may not matter on certain games like Kirby's Adventure which is using 50Hz version that was already optimized but WiiU version will also fix the page size while keeping the various languages. Where if they had gone to NTSC, it would be English only.

I'm going to replace any Wii VC game I have as it comes up. For less than $30 I can do that to all of them and it makes it worth it to me.

NA ain't getting Super Mario world? I could've sworn I saw it.

Maybe I overlooked.. hold on... ok you're right. fixed.



Good job on making the thread (:

SNES games are such a robbery. N64 games on Wii costs just a tad bit more than that.
I will likely buy Super Metroid and Earthbound.

Earthbound and F-Zero. I would buy both Fire Emblems, if I would be a japanese ...
Didn't they convert all the other Wii-VC-games to WiiU?

predict! / Can 3DS outsell PSP? / Does Vita have better 3rd-party support in 2014 than 3DS?

Bet with platformmaster918 and ethomaz about PS3 overtaking Wii in total sales.

Bet with Lawlight: How many PS3 will Sony ship over 2013. He wins if that are more than 11 million, I win if it are less.
