I still think they should allow regular Game Boy games to be on the Wii's VC through the Super Game Boy or even without. It could even increase sales having the games available for download in more than one location. I suppose it could still happen, but I doubt it.

But that would hurt one of the selling points for the 3DS. Besides there is already plenty of games for the systems that are on the Wii VC that Nintendo can release on the Wii without adding another system.

Not a bad idea actually, but there's still lots of good games yet to be on VC to be released (Yoshi's Island is one)

That's not a bad idea. I guess it would work like the Game Boy Advance Player did on the Gamecube.

From what I remember, the GameBoy Player contains the actual GBA hardware.

We will probably see Game Boy games on Project Cafe's VC instead of the Wii's VC.

A Super Game Boy contains real GB (monochrome) hardware, so for a VC release they'd have to simultaneously emulate the SNES and the Game Boy.
Considering they won't even put gun/mouse games up... :P

The stretch would look much better than how the 3DS would stretch them. I'm 100% for this, but we'll never see it happen. :P

Though this is highly unlikely, it would be nice to have GB/GBC/GBA games on the Wii.
it's a shame that the Gameboy player from the GC didn't work with the Wii.

I play Gameboy/Color/Advance games (occasionally) on Wii through a special method. Stretching isn't a huge deal (since I can change the resolution and whatnot).

Though, I do prefer to play these games on a handheld. I had a GB player but I never really liked using it much. It was cool how some games such as Mario&Luigi SSS had a rumble feature, though.

I just use my GBA SP to play my Gameboy Games and my DS for GBA games. I had the Super Gameboy adapter for the SNES back in the day but I only used it for Pokemon Red since at that time my brother kept stealing my Gameboy so he could play Pokemon Blue.
