It's a huge topic, I think in lots of ways if Nintendo was addressing the "itch" of these fans (myself included) with a better service for playing older games these kinds of devices wouldn't exist. The fact they exist is down to demand of fans wanting to relive all these old games with modern convenience. The best way for Nintendo tackle this would be to get more games on VC and much faster, obviously which isn't exactly easy.

If, like me, you spent £1000s on games the first time around, getting a flash-cart now isn't going to ruin Nintendo, if anything its going to make you a more loyal player long term.

@Cyberbotv2 kind of, the 3DS uses them ;) I'm not sure it would be cost effective for large console games though - Nintendo could of course keep their download sizes small, look at Mario 3D World (1.5GB was it?) that would easily fit on a cart/SD card. However, it'll never be cheaper than optical media, which means it'll never happen.
