    If taken literally, “Winter 2014” means “Dec 21-31”. That isn’t enough time to move units before Christmas. If they meant “in time for Black Friday” – which is a reasonable assumption to make if they want to salvage the Wii U – then they should have said “Fall 2014”

    So the PSN is having a huge sale on older games (and Lego games) this weekend and I figured I’d go over to the eShop and see what they have going on for Easter. Oh right, they’re Nintendo. :-(

    Shame too, I was planning on getting Retro City Rampage on 3DS if it went on sale but you can’t beat a 99 cent CROSSBUY* on PSN.

    *I do not own a Vita but am thinking about it just because I already have access to such a big game library. It’s a shame 3DS owners can’t apply the same logic toward getting a Wii U (or vice versa).

    Unless your in certain parts of North America, where Winter 2014 is apparently trying to be from January 1 to December 31.

    The vita does have fun games, not like the 3ds has, but it has it's very own fun library. Gravity Rush alone is worth it. Love that game.

    Wasn't Nintendo going to release Virtual Console versions of GameCube and DS games? They're getting slowly better with releasing old games in a digital format, but they've still got a long way to go with this comparatively easy method of boosting revenue...

    Nintendo has never made proper use of the VC imo.

    The 3DS can play DS games.

    Gamecube? You're out of luck with the Wii U. You better have a working Gamecube or Wii.

    Actually Nintendo was talking about the possibility of putting DS games on the Wii U VC. Nothing’s set in stone though. Even if it was, at this point I think Nintendo has broken more promises to customers than they kept this gen (anyone hear anything about Swapnote 3D lately?)

    Still, it would be nice to play Dragon Quest IX on a system with working wifi. I never got to experience most of the postgame content because the DS internet support was too outdated.

    Any Gamecube discussion that doesn’t include the phase “HD remake available for retail” is just wishful thinking. Nintendo can’t even be bothered to put N64 games on Wii U’s VC and only just started to convert the Wii’s large SNES library so that’s a LONG way away if it happens at all.

    Edit: I was thinking of Flipnote 3D. The game is so late that I forgot what it was called.

    I'd much rather they release a Super Gameboy style add-on for Wii-U and DS, rather than just VC.

    That does seem more efficient (especially since my 32gb is already nearly full) … but then they won’t be able to sell us the same games again so they’d never go for it.

    Sure they could, have it that the add on can hold memory and the games aren't emulated but the actual game and runs off the add on.

    I personally would love a retro nintendo console that can play original games and have hard drive space on it for Virtual console games also.

    Sort of like the retron 5. But official! It would be cool if nintendo and other companies re released older games again in their original boxes and instructions. I know they will never do this, but that would be awesome.

    When I saw that Nintendo remade the ball game and watch on club nintendo, I used my points to get it right away. But, I wish they made it the Super Mario Bros or/and Zelda game and watch, those were the best out of all of those. The Zelda game had a dragon boss to it too!
