I heard they're going to release Cheetahmen 1 and 2, Action 52, Little Samson, and Stadium Events on the Wii U & 3DS VC. The prices are going to range from $150 to $200. I'm so excited!

Some guy bought the rights to Cheetahmen a few years ago and actually did want like $200 I think for Cheetahman II (or $500 for a "collectors edition" with two copies, a "collectable" sealed copy and "play" open copy. This guy knows collectors!)
Though it made a few people mad because the owner contacted the guy who made an unofficial ROM patch to fix the unwinnable level and was reselling the patched version (even though if he's the legal copyright owner of the game, then that's legit to resell).

you do realize i have some pull with vc releases right?
thats why when i get people mad on here they know better than to talk back to me because ill slow down their most wanted games on vc, or suggest they never see the light of day, or until i see the price is right. the right price is whatever makes my wallet fatter.
keep up yer funny business and ill have nothing but urban champion all over yer vc like its going out of style. thats all it will play. that and Urban Champion U, because after all, everyone likes a champion.

Are you saying you're going to pull a ROB and turn all my VC games into Urban Champion?
(too bad there isn't a demand for Urban Champion, even if VC games could be resold)

I'll make blood donations for the Rare Download version of Castlevania 3. 666 should be enough, right?

Castlevania III isn't a rare game, though.

I'm sorry Mr. Only but Sony has beaten you.
Charge people to stream games (not even download them, and because it's streaming you get extra lag) and even then only rent streams (sometimes at prices at or higher the cost to buy).

no one ever beats me. ever. nobody.
i will just jack up the prices a little more. when you raise the price on something it adds more to the desire factor. it gives people a goal.
then they feel they have the right to complain about it online.
rare downloads is here to stay folks. your money=my pocket

Well, it is almost Mother's 25th birthday.
If they'd put EB on 3DS I'd be more excited (and I could actually download it, no Wuu presently).
Still hoping they'll put Mother 1 on it at least.

That's witty because there is no such thing as a rare download.

I really love how you guys made an entire sarcastic thread. GJ! :-D

If there's no such thing as a "rare download" then why would @ogo79 say there was? Huh?

I don't mind if Nintendo slightly jacks up the prices of Saturn or Dreamcast games, maybe even Nintendo games that have to be translated but it sets a terrible precedent if they get away with charging over the odds for something just because its original format is rare but is effectively just a ROM.
