It's unfortunate that most third parties are not interested in releasing third party games on the virtual console.Nintendo is running out of games to release,that's why they expanded the console lineup.I wish Nintendo could do something to get more third parties on board.On topic,I don't want a subscription model like PS Plus.Don't they take away your games if you lapse your payment?

@Yorumi Chopping up a game before release,while also not reducing the price, to get more money is a scam.This is releasing extra content that they did not even think of after the game has been out for a while.Nintendo did not do that.I don't even know where you got that.

@Yorumi Originally Nintendo did not plan to release dlc for Super Smash Bros.The reason it took months to release is because they made it after the game was released.Nintendo saw the fan demand and changed their minds about releasing dlc in Smash Bros.

Also from the same thread, http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1015363 Why the shortages and why no universal emulator?
Why are there platform availability differences, as well as why there's no cross-buy?
Because Nintendo got some weird licensing deals with various companies regarding releases of their titles. Remember stuff getting removed from Wii VC on Wii U launch? Yeah, this sort of thing.
There are some poor souls which will purchase the same game twice. Sometimes, no cross-buy is also enforced by licensing deals.
This didn't necessarily need to extend to all titles. Imagine the accusation windmill that would happen if some titles were cross-buy and some wouldn't, though. Way easier to just cut it out and make nothing cross-buy by default.
Iwata's shareholder talks imply that beginning with their next system or something, availability of things is going to get better.

Why Nintendo releases each emulated title as a normal title instead of DLC for an emulator app?
There are absolutely no dev time advantages for this, there may in fact be disadvantages. On Wii they already used a single emulator for a platform 99% of the time (they updated it for newer releases, but it was the same thing), configured with an extra file appended to everything. The only real technical disadvantage is waste of space. Nobody nowadays cares about space sadly. The advantage of this model is that they don't break already released games when emulator is actually updated. If you weren't aware, they did something very similar with the whole "not-really-OS" of Wii - they kept old versions for old games, updating them only for bugs regarding these old games.

The virtual console situation is mostly because third parties don't care to put their games on the service.Nintendo has put almost all of their Nes and Snes games on the service.The drip feed was because Nintendo was trying to make the few games they had access to last.Call your favorite third parties and ask for them to put their games on the virtual console service.

I am sick and tired of people making more about an new advertising campaign that will earn a little money on the side.Remember mobile equals more console fans.So far this is a good move.The NX is probably Nintendo's next handheld based on the time.People need to stop spouting that hybrid console/handheld gibberish though.

Mobile is nothing more than advertising for Nintendo consoles and handhelds.

Not much is going to change inside of Nintendo it's self.They are still going to make a home console and and handheld.The development tools are just going to be more integrated with the console and handheld.Nintendo still won't develop smart phone games that are the equivilant of real games, that's why Nintendo contracted DeNA help them to do it.Those games will be like demo experiences to the real games that will only come out on Nintendo platforms.It's sort of like a funnel start at the top and go down on to the real games.All this smart phone stuff is advertising Nintendo brands.Pokemon will still be on 4DS and Mario platformers will still be on the Wii U successor.

Man,people are going crazy in a few places about this.I understand it as a marketing tactic with a few extra dollars on the side.That is all this is ,Nintendo will still release a home console and a handheld.Business as usual.

@Yorumi There are more people on smart phones to pull off of than both DS and Wii platforms combines.They have never tried it in this way before.It also is what their stock holders want and will earn them some more money.People will pay for the advertising.Two things knocked out with one stone.

People need to calm down not much is going to change.What does change will all be for the better.An example of good change is a new account system coming this fall.Mobile is just an advertising strategy.I think it is a stroke of genus! People on mobile will play the small advertising/demo game and think "Wow, there's a full version that I can get on one of Nintendo's platforms"? Then they will proceed to look into it and get those consoles/handhelds and games.Exposure.

NandN3ds commented on Poll: Which New Nintendo 3DS Will You be Buying?:

I am was going to get a regular size black New Nintendo 3DS,but it isn't coming out in America.I really don't like the XL form factor. Unfortunately, I need to get a new 3DS because the original one that I got at launch has a broken 3D slider and is in general bad repair.I thought about it and have decided to get the black XL.If Nintendo releases the regular size a few months after I get the XL I will be disappointed and angry.

No reason to watch Ubisoft or EA's press conferences for me.They won't release any of the software that they show on Nintendo systems. Even with the 3DS doing moderately well it gets no 3rd party software.I will probable watch it anyway. When ever they say nothing about Wii U/3DS I will scream into the monitor.

NandN3ds commented on Hardware Classics: Nintendo Virtual Boy:

I have a Virtual Boy and enjoyed it before I got a 3DS two years ago. I still like the Virtual Boy and would never sell it unless I needed the money for something really important. It would be cool if Nintendo put some VB games on the 3DS virtual console. I have never gotten a headache from using a Virtual Boy and people tend to over state headache problems.
