@aaronsullivan accessible meaning not much effort should be required. I understand the contract thing as I deal with contracts as well as exclusive deals that may come along with them. But my educated guess coupled with my following the industry closely all my life is what's behind that list. Atari, now a small company in NYC of merely 12 employees would love to tap open any revenue stream that comes their way. How do I know? I spoke with them on the phone the old fashion way and they are very interested in spreading their classic IPs around. They can't afford to be exclusive with anyone they're looking to grow and not limit their IP to the Flashback consoles! I wish them well! And none of their games or any on my list would be being unearthed from 40 years ago they've all been utilized in recent times. Taito, whose tons of classic IP is owned be Square Enix, has several vc titles in wii u in japan right now! Midway published the MIDWAY ARCADE ORIGINS not too long ago which was a disc of 30+ classics for the 360/PS3. These games were already published on mobile phones. Activision who unlike Atari doesn't need the money, is always publishing their 2600 classics all over the place. Sega is just being the new Sega not the old Sega of the 90s. Namco has only put out limited classics on wii u here and wii shop prior while they sit on the rest of their classics in which a TON of then were published on the Wii shop in japan but for whatever reason never came to the states! 15 Data East classics in disc were published on wii only a few years ago. Konami seems to just be on the fence and just not interested at all yet a few of their classics are just now starting to appear on PS4! . Capcom while thankfully has been behind wii u is STILL leaving a ton of their games in the vault!? Y?? Finally while many are already aware, many of the turbographx 16 games on my list ,30+ vc titles are already on wii u in japan but not here!! Qbert was just posted on Ps4/One. Colecovision flashback has a bunch of arcade classics on it like jungle hunt & frenzy!! Minecraft I mentioned only cause it just baffles me that the game is on everything save Nintendo formats! Yea there may be a few challenges there like Popeye but majority of titles listed here are obtainable and just takes some effort. I myself do not bother nor have the time to bother with roms or emulaters and I like most avid gamers would rather pay for a legit copy of a game digital or what have you.
Sure they're a few gems out there that some joe owns the rights too in say Gary,Indiana but this list was crafted with some thought and realism in mind.
As far as Nintendo eating some loses to get this done, we all know the $$ they have. Sometimes you have to spend to earn. Of course were not seeing the numbers but They clearly need to hire more staff to expedite this to AT LEAST DO BETTER than 1 vc game a week!!! And in case you didn't notice, I'm not the only one ragging here! Lol! Enjoy your 4th of July!!

@aaronsullivan allmost all of these titles are easily accessable and shouldn't have license issues and if their is in any way then Nintendo needs to make an effort to secure them. As far as the wii goes vc was available day 1 and we're hitting at the pace of 3-4 a week then and this was way before the wii blasted off to 100 million in sales so I'm sorry I just can't give Iwata nor Nintendo a pass here on this because even though the wii u is a flop(I guess 10 million in sales is for the dogs these days for 3rd parties) there is still no real good excuse for the torturous pace of 1 vc game a week for the better part of the last 2 years!!!. They should really stop being cheap greedy people and add staffing to the vc program to expedite. Lastly what the hell took ANYBODY so long to pose this question to Nintendo anyhow? None of these game sites have asked them for whatever reason and from all places the question came from one of their own investors??
But still Nonetheless Iwatas response is a big heaping pile of crap!! Sometimes I don't know who's more full of it him or Reggie!! Sorry....

this people, is just a sample of what the virtual console could be!! To me Nintendo is blowing it big time!!! There are THOUSANDS of classics out there. They just have to look & track them down and then open up their damn checkbook!!!! Contact sega! Contact Atari! Contact Warner bros/Midway etc etc!!!

@RCMADIAX I agree with most of this but japan wii u has 300+ vc titles while North America stands at 174. And while I'm not doubting the labor involved, 1 vc game a week for the better part of a year & a half to me is unacceptable! How was it then that the wii vc was a nice pace of 4-5 vc titles a week spread over several systems?? Only thing I can conclude to the Iwata explanation is to simply hire more staff to expedite and achieve a better release pace especially if the concern is the project could interfere with new development! Thanks and I'm still waiting on a follow up to shut the box!😃👍

joey302 commented on Shovel Knight is Coming to Retail:

Dear publishers,
Is it that difficult to release these games day 1 as retail and digital formats?? Please let us decide for ourselves! I would've never DL shovel knowing a boxed version was coming!! First duck tales then Wolfenstein old Blood and others and now this!! Cmon people!! Don't be greedy!!

For whatever reason it seems wii u will never get minecraft so this will be a big gap filled in. Although I realize some actually prefer terraria! But nonetheless it still boggles the mind how or why Nintendo can't seem to secure Minecraft for its systems! Oh well 505 should do well with this on wii u/3DS. Hopefully there will be a retail option as well

joey302 commented on Sonic The Hedgehog is Now 24 Years Old:

What a shame to think Sega will not be posting any classics be it sonic or their other classics on wii u vc anytime soon. I personally think sega missed out on some coin there. Hungry Wii U owners woulda been snapping them up!! Oh well maybe with the NX?

Wow totally disappointed! Seems to me that the wii u got less love than the 3DS and it's the Wii U that needs it most!!! No vc surprises either?? Thought maybe they would finally announce bringing some turbographx 16 games over from japan! Yes I know they're in the wii shop but still!
😭😁😭😁😡😞💤 ugh!!

Anyone who deems this as no big deal is crazy!! Wii U needs games! Period!! Call of duty while annual is IMO always a solid experience although I prefer the battlefield series but that's a separate conversion entirely!!

@ThomasBW84 hey Tom! can you please reach out to the folks at Natsume and point out that with tomorrow's wii u update, it will make 3 out of 4 weeks that an Snes vc game was posted(in the states)! Bacause I'm trying to understand what that article was all about a month ago regarding that Natsume was stating that Nintendo's interest in the snes was waning? I think I can speak for a lot of fans that we would LOVE to see POCKY & ROCKY 1&2, spike mcfang and other Natsume snes classics on wii u!! Great classic games, expensive on eBay and would be a day one purchase for me! I would love to see a follow up on this subject? Thank you in advance sir!!

What a disaster! But typical of the wii u scene! I also feel that ANYONE who backs a project on kickstarter and others should ABSOLUTELY BE REIMBURSED if the project either fails or is cancelled!! It's like getting robbed in a dark alley way at gunpoint!! Kickstarter and others should protect supporters in a similar way that eBay protects buyers from bad sellers!! Simple!
