I already have them both, but I'm glad they gave us the warning. I'd better get the TG-16 R-Type now too, it will probably be next to go.

What's going on with Irem? They self published Super R Type on the VC, so why is it getting removed? Factor 5 is no more, but their games are still on the VC (probably better grab those games too, just in case).

It's nice of them to give notice. I wonder how many more sales the notice will generate than if they left the games up forever though — could be a smart business move to scare fence sitters into purchasing.

If the R-Type series will be removed in PAL territories, it is likely the game will also be gone in the U.S. since R-Type for the Master System was removed over here as well. It is really unfortunate to know games on the Virtual Console service are going.

I'm still upset I missed out on SMS R-Type. I didn't get the news it was being removed until it was too late.

If there will be an option to transfer DL games to Wii U i´m worried if they can´t let us to transfer this games (or another deleted).

Not surprising since the SMS RType was removed last year. This right here is why physical media is better than digital media

@DarkEdi - That's a good point. If they let us transfer games at all, I'm curious to know if you can also transfer games that you own that were removed from the Wii Shop.

It would be nice if the VC would reach 400+ games. It looks like its headed in the opposite direction. I wonder what will get removed next. :P

I wonder if the R-Type games on the PSN will be removed as well.

I collect carts too, but many I sold when the Virtual Console arrived. I wish I had never done that. I love the concept behind downloading classic games but the service is becoming unreliable. Its like everytime I log onto NL I find another game has been removed (or will be) from the VC.

yeah im kinda reverse of that, i started buying more carts like a madman once i seen how the VC service was going. i love the service, but i started seeing that most of the games i like probably wont see the light of day on VC, i love rare and obscure games so when one pops up on VC i get it rather i have it already or not. if yer serious about it (if you dont already) id suggest getting an nes, snes and sega genesis system.
