I think Nintendo should give all Wii U early adopters a complete VC with unlicensed 3rd party games for sale. When the IP owners complain, Nintendo should just say it's not them doing it but they take copyright infringement seriously.

I want Lemmings on VC!!

I love Nintendo and everything, and I've never complained about the Virtual Console's pricing, but there's no way I would ever shell out that much for a "rare" download. There's no way I would pay $100-300 for what amounts to a Virtual Console title. If anyone submitted this to Nintendo for serious consideration, they're probably laughing at it too, because even they know that's a little extreme. I could see maybe paying $15 for the VC iteration of Ninja Gaiden Trilogy on SNES, considering that's three NES games in one, but that's about the extent of it. Anything more would result in me boycotting Virtual Console altogether.

People come up with ridiculous ideas like this, and y'all wonder why people go the ROM emulation route instead?

I'm really glad to see this idea is spreading. I just filled out another Club Nintendo survey suggesting this strategy. I'm sure Nintendo will have this implemented before that unnecessary account system some people have been asking for.

Some people already complain about the games on the VC being too expensive. You really expect them to buy a game for $100-$300?

This is a stupid idea.

For those of you that paid "too much": the value of the item was worth it for you at the time as a collector. The fact that someone is so angry that they purchased a "rare classic" for far too much money and now want everyone else to pay the same is just misdirected anger, look in the mirror, then begin your rant... the rest of us with common sense here, we'll reap the benefits of patience and good 'ol' common sense! Wow, this is the lamest forum thread I have ever read! Seriously... Charge more for non ownership of a game? Clearly a troll forum! I'm out.

Technically even a physical copy isn't "full ownership" either ;)

How isn't it full ownership? :P They can't suddenly rescind your ability to play a physical game.
If I delete my VC copy of Yoshi's Cookie, that's it I can't play it anymore. (luckily Wii VC games play just fine offline, so in theory I should still be able to play that for as long as my Wii works and I have a SD card and I keep at least one backup copy of the VC file.)
But as long as I have a functioning Game Boy I can play my Game Boy cart.

What if Nintendo just put them all out at a normal price ? that would give them more money and popularity.

Nintendo should offer 'Rare' downloads at a slightly inflated cost to deal with the money they'd have to give MS but there is no justification to charge extra money for what is essentially a 1-64mb ROM file with a basic emulator attached. I tolerated it with Earthbound but it's a dangerous precedent for us, as fans, to set and will ultimately lead to high prices for every sought after game.

They should also be making Xenoblade and MPT in HD because they're two games that game shops are taking massive liberties with the pricing and would definitely beef up Wii U's library. Both would be amongst the highest reviewed games of 2014.

I only tolerated the price increase for EarthBound because I felt a bit guilty from downloading and playing an illegal rom version of it and Mother 3.

Is this conversation still going on? Seriously? Earthbound is $2 more than any other SNES game on the service. There's your "rare download" price. Case closed.

Question 1. Yes, it's still going on.
Question 2. Yes, some people are actually taking this seriously. :P

This idea is very silly. No one will pay 100$ for a digital copy of any game! Earthbound costs so much because since it didn't sell very much, thus there is not many copies today. Because of this, getting the game complete with cartridge, box and what not is pricey.

At the end of the line, digital games aren't rare at all, so 'Rare downloads' is pretty much an oxymoron that will fail to generate sales.
