I think their mixing up the portable and home console VC games on both platforms so that they can be tied eventually. By the time you buy a GBA game on Wii U, you'll probably be able to share it with your 3DS. That's just what I think...

I don't see any reason why Nintendo wouldn't let the systems allow game sharing when they obviously can. That's why I think they're working on it. They aren't trying to keep features from customers as much as making sure it works appropriately.

why don't they just put the GBA and N64 games on both wii u and 3ds. wider selection = more buyers.

Because that would require effort.

I had fun once and it was awful.

My hope is that they are working on a VC re-launch. There is no other sensible explanations as to why there is such little support especially compared to what is already available on Wii. However, knowing NOA and NCL they probably aren't making it a priority because it probably doesn't make them that much money.

Games available both on 3DS and WiiU = less incentive to get a struggling WiiU.
That's why the 3DS isn't getting SNES games, either. Because the WiiU needs them.

Virtual Console is not, by any means, a system seller. The Wii U would be pretty in bad shape if the best it had to sell was SNES games. And by the way, the Wii is cheaper and has a much better and comprehensive VC selection than 3DS or Wii U combined.
