Luneth commented on Nintendo Download: 3rd April (Europe):

So £6 for a game that I'll play for at least 20 hours? I don't see what's bad here. Saying you can download them for free from the internet doesn't suddenly make your piracy right. I don't mind buying Advance Wars because I know the money will go towards Intelligent Systems to make more fantastic games.
And Drill Dozer day one, because that masterpiece needs a sequel.

Any word on the price of Nintendo Pocket Football Club yet?

@Kifa
1) Why would they go to the trouble of configuring every game for every little multiplayer mode that are all setup in different ways? GBA games aren't just "plug in a controller to controller port 2" you know. Why would they waste servers on something no one would use and something which was never intended for that game to begin with? They release the games to be played as they were on the console, not to whatever features you saw in VBA.
2) They're really similar graphically and in power, plus most of the games don't scream "this was meant for a portable console!" considering the amount of long games and RPGs.
3) Nintendo won't release GBA games on the 3DS because of their commitment to Ambassadors. I really don't care though, I'd much rather play them on my phone if I wanted to play them on the go.
4) Then what do you want them to do? Release nothing on the eShop until Mario Kart releases? The point is that now they can have a clump of games being released each week that keeps the userbase going back to see what's new and potentially buying some to keep them occupied. They could have 1 NES game, 1 SNES game and 1 GBA game per week or cycle between them, whatever; the point is that there's nothing wrong with adding a library onto a console that needs one right now.

1) Most GBA games' multiplayer required personal copies for each player and everyone had different screens. Expecting them to go in and work in essentially another emulator for a second player to popup when you select the multiplayer option is pretty ridiculous. Online play is stupid beyond belief considering the option wasn't even available in the first place, maybe when DS games come along, but not now.
2) GBA games are practically SNES games, this "wahh, they're portable games, it doesn't make sense" nonsense is a load of BS.
3) Blame Ambassadors for GBA games coming to Wii U first.
4) Wii U needs more releases on the eShop to fill out the space between releases for now anyway
5) Pokemon games are never being released on VC, the only GBA Pokemon games that might make it are Mystery Dungeon Red and Pokemon Pinball RS
6) Advance Wars has single-system multiplayer anyway, so who really cares?
