Why not make every single VC game cost $1 and re-introduce everyone to those franchises creating the most insane value for money ever.
Think how many people would go by a Wii U just for the virtual console. Atm it's better to just run emulators on the PC.

however if one could choose any 50 old school classics you wanted to for $50?
Atm a old forgotten not so great old game can cost the same price as Bio-shock Infinite on a Steam sale.
Steam recently broke records with 7 million concurrent users btw. Elitist pricing only attract a small userbase.

Nintendo simply fails to see the bigger picture.

why not make a $999 VC pack that comes with only half the currently available VC titles and calling it the "ultimate Rare Download pack"?

looking forward to Codename S.T.E.A.M.

this thread has helped me to realize that the clash at demonhead is a real game, and i might try to find it now. hope it doesnt come out on vc for way cheaper the day after i find it.

Clash At Demonhead will never see the light of day on the VC so you are pretty safe picking up the cartridge.

I miss Japanese games, the good stuff... Games that are imaginative, have good and unique gameplay, a great soundtrack, and replay value.

Correct. I don't know if VIC Tokai even exists in Japan anymore (I know they were primarily a cable company, and making video games was a side business they had for awhile).

I'd happily pay more for games that need to be localised, like the old Fire Emblem and Famicom Wars games,Joy Mech Fight and Nazo no Murasamejo.

I think the "rare downloads" should be more expensive than the cartridges. It makes sense because of all the hard work Iwata has to go through to get the "rare downloads" directly to you.

Well, the way I see it I think it should be a $70 "rare download", plus $20 for translation, and $60 for Iwata to get it directly to you. So $150 total. Yeah, I think that sounds about right.

I'd be ok if they charged $15 or even $20 for mother 3, but it would fail if they charged the same price as the GBA carts. I'm glad I got a cart back in 08 for $20, and as much as I love the game, for most fans it's not worth more than a new wii u game.

Please undastanding since 2012.

looking forward to Codename S.T.E.A.M.

Maybe to make it an even $250 they could add Cranky Kong, so another $25 Cranky fee.

This thread is getting out of hand. I bought Earthbound a couple of days ago, and while I don't have any problem cashing out €10 for it, it sets a worrisome precedent for future releases. Back on Wii, I've gladly spent €12 on Sin and Punishment, an absolutely superb N64 game only previously released in Japan.
I'm not paying more than €15 for Virtual Consoles games, ever. Not even for the GameCube second coming.

I noticed that was dropped in 2003. One of the first games with the Nintendo Seal was Fire Emblem (Blazing Sword). (Final Fantasy Tactics Advance, released a couple months earlier, still had it.) Well, it was the first time the franchise was released outside Japan so maybe they felt they needed to play it safe and say they don't guarantee the entertainment value of the game. Don't want to have a large number of people who can't handle permadeath (or just resetting whenever someone dies) returning the game because it "sucks". :D

The emulation quality is not good enough to justify higher prices. (It should be at least as good as the best amateur efforts considering they have no docs).

Buying bootlegs is terrible as well (People seem to call them repros but they are bootlegs).

This way all of @ogo79 's rare NES and SNES games will go up in price, and he can have another gold swimming pool. I love this idea.
