Does anyone know if they will combine the 3DS VC games with the Wii U ones?

So Games Brought from the 3DS VC can be played on a Wii U VC

I feel if they don't do this, it will be a big kick in the nads to those who have supported the VC Since it started on the Wii

I don't think they're gonna do it anytime soon but you know, GBA games ARE appearing on the Wii's VC for some strange reason, I think it was announced on one of the previous Nintendo Directs. Who knows? maybe a service is possible, but cross platform hasn't ever really taken off on any platform yet. There are two games that I know of that are gonna be capable of cross play, Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate for WiiU and 3DS (which is by far the nearest game to have cross compatibility, it comes out in a couple of days) and then there's the next Super Smash Bros for both the WiiU and 3DS (which will also have cross play, but not a lot is known about either version yet).
A cross platform Virtual Console would be a great idea, but the implementation probably won't make it until Nintendo's next set of hardware, I'm sure both machines are capable but it would probably mean you'd have to pay again (abeit less, like with the future WiiU VC is gonna have when you pay a small fee to have your past Wii VC games have better features like miiverse intergration).

If they release GBA games on the eShop for non-Ambassadors, I think at least at first, Nintendo's only going to allow transferring between 3DS and Wii U for NES and GBA games, while GB and GBC will be 3DS exclusive while SNES, N64, and GC will be Wii U exclusive. Then things will change later.

Probably not.
Nintendo's already making us re-buy NES VC games if we want to play them on 3DS and we already bought them on Wii.

Sony are doing it with PS1 and PS Mini games on the PS3 and PSP/Vita, and they are still making money off them. Maybe not for the entire VC, but I really think they should do it with at least NES and GBA games.

Yes, but they're also forcing people to rebuy all their PS3 games for the PS4. I'd honestly love Nintendo to use this system, who wouldn't? However right now 3DS users have to rebuy games bought on their Wii and Wii U users will need to pay extra to get their Wii VC games to Wii U ones. Following these trends it doesn't look likely that Nintendo would do that, but I'd love to be proven wrong - even if it was only for NES/GBA games (which to be honest are the only systems it would make sense for as all others aren't available on both 3DS and Wii(U)).

Actually we don't know what Sony is going to do about your old games on the PS4. We know it won't be backwards compatible, but it's possible they will let you stream your old games that you purchased on the PS3.

It makes sense because that's what PS3 and PS Vita do (not counting the PS2 Classics). The 3DS needs to at least have GBA games on the 3DS VC... it makes more sense than putting them on the Wii U.

Games I'm playing currently: Legend of Zelda: A Link Betweeen Worlds, Tearaway
Games I'm excited for: Super Mario 3D World, Super Smash Bros. 4, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, Mario Kart 8
