I agree that Nintendo has not done nearly enough to promote the service. Why can't they give away some points like with dsiware? The 500 point cards with big games at gamestop was a small step in that direction.

Most of my friends who own a wii don't even know that you can download retro games on it.

WTF? Really? How is that even possible if they have their Wii's online? Surely if they've ever visited the Wii Shop Channel to download games, they've seen the big old "Virtual Console" icon sitting right next to the WiiWare one there.

The lack of releases is only one complaint in my overall dissatisfaction with Nintendo's handling of the VC. Honestly, if they wouldn't keep us in the dark about everything VC releated, I probably wouldn't be that upset. Why the secrecy? It's been that way since the beginning.

I agree with this. Some sort of official schedule would be most welcome.

I made Kid Tripp! PocketGamer gave it a 9 out of 10! You should totally buy it now!

No one ever said it was the biggest outrage in the world. We're just venting because that's what you do on internet forums. Are you forgetting where you are? This is the Virtual Console forum. If you want to read happy, "everything is great" comments, go over to the WiiWare or DSiWare forums. I'm sure they're happy campers over there.

great comeback

@Brookes: going so far as to call Nintendo's VC handling offensive is just a tad OTT, also 50 great wiiware titles sounds pretty good to me, not much VC stuff left at least not Nintendo owned stuff anyway, if a big company like EA put their games on to VC, then absolutely give VC more focus, otherwise the wiiware focus is the obvious sensible way to go, but whatever, I'm done beating a dead horse I'll leave that to outraged retro betrayed.

Looking at the Wiiware releases from the last month and a half, I can't imagine they'd be very happy either.

I know, right? There are so many good games coming out that my wallet just can't keep up with them. Stupid Nintendo, you need to slow down with the WiiWare releases. ^_~

LOL! Very true, but at least they get something every week and some of the games are alright I guess. That Pearl Harbor Trilogy game is supposed to be pretty decent.

U dont want VC too run out do u, I know it wont be for a long time but still every game released on the VC is another that wont be but at least we have what we have for VC although I would like a VCA version of Pac-Man, DK and Street Fighter. I also want Saturn Games like NiGHTS.

@Reala - I'm guessing the VC wasn't a big factor in your purchasing of the Wii, but to me it was, so I can't help but feel a little dissapointed in Nintendo's handling of it. I don't sit around angry though, I just spend my money elsewhere.

America is in danger of having only one VC game a month. Ufouria has GOT to come out next week.

Edgey, Gumshoe, Godot, Sissel, Larry, then Mia, Franziska, Maggie, Kay and Lynne.

I'm throwing my money at the screen but nothing happens!

No, Ufouria is definitely not coming out next week if Capcom is right with its VC schedule. Aero the Acrobat is scheduled to come out July 2010 and since today is the 19th with no VC, there's only one Monday left this month so Aero will be released on the 26th so Ufouria will be released in August at the earliest.

Yeah, I feel the same way. The Virtual Console was one of the biggest reasons that I decided to buy a Wii and Nintendo's treatment of the service and it's fans is a huge disappointment. I've been spending the majority of my download money on XBLA and PSN games lately. Hopefully Nintendo will get it's act together but I'm not holding my breath.

Well if they start to release one vc game a month, if that one vc game is a good game, I wouldn't mind much.

Check my topic of games that have been released through 2010. Even though there are several good games released, people still complain that they don't like particular genres so there's been very little they have been interested in. So even if it is one release per month, if you don't like that particular genre, then you're screwed for that month.
