Didn't they already say that GBA wasn't going to come? At least not for a while? And why would they release so many at once, if they could space them out for months?

Yeah, that was a translation error, GBA won't be available straight away (though hopefully it will at some point).
I'm just really looking forward to Link's Awakening DX, personally, since I never played it. I'll probably end up putting money into Super Mario Land as well, even though I still have the original game cart.

This is for LAUNCH? I really don't think we'll have that many games at launch.
Anyway IF GBA games come Mother 3 FTW!

I want Kid Icarus of Myths and Monsters to be released, with Uprising, and maybe to get Japanese gamers ready for Uprising they could release OMAM for the 1st time.

I would buy Pokemon Red and Blue Day 1 if it came on the Virtual Handheld.

It better have Super Mario Land there at launch. I always wanted to play that when I was a Gameboy-less child. Also, I would buy Pokemon Red for the 4th time it was a launch game.

My intention was predictions on WHAT WILL BE the launch titles, not WHAT YOU WANT.
Predicticting the unpredictable is pointless. All we can do right now is hope. With that said, however, I would be very surprised if Super Mario Land wasn't a launch title. Same with Tetris.

How large are GBA games? Will it really be possible to download all of them? As long as Tetris is there, I'll be happy, the internal battery of mine has always been dead, it is older than me, I just want to be able to save my scores.

You'd be surprised. Uncompressed, a single GBA Rom can weigh in at a couple megabytes, usually between 4 and 32 MB, to be more precise. Obviously Nintendo will require they be compressed to a much smaller size, but chances are you won't be able to have more than 20 or 30 at a time on even the largest currently available SD Cards.

They're about the size as SNES games, so I don't think it'd be an issue.
You'll probably need more SD cards to download all of them that will ever be released.

I don't see them publishing Red/Blue on the service simply because they can make way too much remaking the game for more than the original cost(HG/SS) but they could do a remake for ruby and sapphire of the service and 20 bucks would be pretty dang reasonable considering what they could charge and the fact that it's a DLG

Pokemon Red will be a cool start-off, thanks.

Actually, no, GBA games are much bigger than SNES games for some reason. The GBA carts can hold way more, so they put way more in with certain games. Plus I'm sure they didn't bother with much compression. The largest SNES game was about 4 or 5, maybe 6 MegaBytes decompressed. GBA games can go far beyond that.

What a load of BS
The GBA was physically limited to 32MB games (although I think there was a work around) so even with a 1GB SD card (which I don't think you can even buy anymore) you'd be able to fit 31 of the biggest GBA games. I don't think holding GBA games will be much of an issue... and if you do happen to want to hold 60 GBA games on your system at once on the 2GB SD card the thing is apparently bundled with buy another SD card. They are as cheap as chips.

Really? You think so?
Because I just did some math and you could fit 64 GBA games in 2GB at the least (with only the largest games) and if you only played the smallest games, you'd fit 512 of them.
There are 949 GBA games which (if they are the largest size possible) is 29.66GB, so I could fit every GBA game ever on an SD Card in a worst case senario. And I'm pretty sure that in reality the games are smaller.
