Huh, I seem to recall someone else, Miyamoto or Iwata, saying these were shown purely for demonstrational purposes, but I don't recall where. It'd be neat to see old games with pop-up effects, or just to make the characters, enemies, and moveable objects appear raised. Not sure how I feel about the prospect of buying all these games I just bought on VC though...

So we're supposed to be excited about them rehashing old games? Especially annoying is that Nintendo has repackaged some of these titles more than once.

I don't care if it's 3D or not, it's over a decade old and NOT worth 30 bucks, no game over a decade old is worth that much.
Yes, because completely redoing the graphics and making updates to the game itself (I hear something about making the Water Temple what they always wanted it to be) aren't worth money anymore. Obviously, the work the company puts into this is imaginary, so the game shouldn't cost you anything.

Remember the NES classic collection for GBA and Play on Wii series of Gamecube remakes and how it was never carried through to the end? The same will probably happen again

The work may not be imaginary, but it is absolutely not as much work as making a new game, so no, it absolutely is not worth $30. However, considering we don't have confirmation that the game will be released or what the average 3DS game cost will be, I have no idea why anyone would assume it'd be $30. Nintendo has done a good job with Wii and DS distinguishing games worth full price and games that should be at lower prices.

Every game ever made coming soon to a 3DS near you! In 3-D! heh... Well, the way the press releases are stacking up, it sure seems that way. I don't mind them re-hashing the classics for a younger generation to enjoy. I kind of worry about the "not a direct remake" thing since it's fairly clear they're mostly just going to add 3D sequences and tweaking the control schemes. At least, that was the buzz for Ocarina of Time. It's not like they'll be adding any game content - which I suppose is a good thing, these games were great just the way they were.

you know, remaking is not just "lets edit the original file and say its a remake", they really need to REmake everything probably from scratch (resdient evil remake) or a existing game engine (pokemon soul silver used platinum's which used diamond's). Its more of another game with same story and characters. So if you completely REMADE a game that was good to start off with and has a HUGE fanbase, why would you want it to be cheaper than the original, at least?

That's a big assumption. Nintendo's most recently history with remakes, the New Play Control games, do none of this. Nintendo said they'd want to make changes to Ocarina if they rereleased it, but they didn't say it would be completely remade. So far it sounds like a graphically enhanced remake with some balancing improvements and minor enhancements.

those are just adaptations, not remakes at all, like the NES classics for the GBA.i dont think they can use N64-extracted code for their newest handheld, though, i heard the N64 was awkward (and a pain) to program on. But thats only an assumption too.

I understand remaking N64 games in 3D but everything before the N64 generation, just leave it be. Remaking NES games and SNES games in 3D sounds like a quick way to rip off the customer, especially if they cost over $10 per game as downloadable titles (or even worse, more $ as retail remakes) and just have the same game with 3D gimmicky features. Considering most NES and many SNES games can be cleared in less than an hour or two, it's sketchy.
However, it makes sense that Nintendo has seemingly stopped caring about the Wii Virtual Console in favor of this idea. Why release Yoshi's Island for $8 when you can "upgrade" it at little cost and sell it for $20 or more? Sketchy and sleazy but that's business and people will be suckered in.

Considering Yoshi's Island is one of two major first-party titles I can think of that Nintendo hasn't released in the west yet, each with difficult-to-emulate chips, I'd hardly start accusing them of not caring about the Virtual Console or being sketchy and sleazy. Most likely Star Fox and Yoshi's Island will come out this year if they're to come out at all. They have to have something to release, so it's natural to spread out the titles. Either that or they've just had too much trouble emulating them and a remake like this would be easier.

Oh imagine Star Fox 3D, all those pixels flying at you.
btw adam i though you where talking about the n64 remakes, for some reason, sorry.

Well, when you were talking about Ocarina, yes, I was. My last message was in response to Kevohki. I should get into the habit of quoting or addressing people, but most of the time I forget and think it's clear just because the messages are back-to-back.
