Virtual Console Coming To The DS?

Reggie speaks about the upcoming game download service on the DS
The rumours have been circulating for quite some time but the concept of downloading ‘complete’ games to your Nintendo DS is becoming a reality, if a recent interview with Reggie is anything to go by.
Nintendo’s main man spoke to the New York Times recently about the new ‘Everybody’s Nintendo’ channel and how DS owners will soon be able to download entire games to their portable machine.
Here’s a small quote:
Complete games as well as game samplers will be able to be downloaded into the Wii using its broadband connection, and then transferred wirelessly to the DS.
Although he hasn’t said as such, many people are taking these comments to mean that a Virtual Console-style service may be coming to the DS. Gameboy connectivity is the most obvious choice, and it certainly would be nice to play some of the classic Black & White GB games from way back in the day.
