@Adam: here's him mentioning Earthbound at E3 2005. it was Excitebike, Earthbound, and Punch-Out!! that were mentioned together, and while both Excitebike and Punch-Out!!/Super Punch-Out!! have been released for VC, Earthbound has yet to be seen.

on that note, I found this article interesting... apparently there are some music similarities that could be hindering its VC release. hmm.

@Adam

believe it or not, late in the development cycle, they removed Wii Motion Plus functionality so they could tout the Virtual Boy Wireless Networking Adapter. You know how Nintendo loves their peripherals!

the only reason you do not owe me a new keyboard, good sir, is because i had just finished my drink a minute ago. well-played! :3

he's talking about Eiji Aonuma, who's served as designer/producer/director/whatever on LoZ titles since OoT, and the Split Timeline theory.

Star Trek started off pretty bad. If I had been by myself, I might have walked out halfway through, but fortunately the latter half of the movie is much more interesting in plot, and all the worst acting is in the beginning.

Star Trek was chock full of fanservice to the very end. The only part i didn't like outright was the Spock/Uhura thing they had going. AU or not, i just can't wrap my brainmeats around that impossibility. :/

@Adam, Chicken Brutus: sorry, guys, I sold the only one I had to Iwata. He gave me a golden Wii for it, how could I refuse? :D

@SSBFan1999: Chicken Brutus summed up my point pretty well. Download the ROM, don't download it, play it, don't play it -- it won't make a lick of difference as to whether or not Nintendo releases a game on the VC. As I said before, if they were honest-to-goodness tracking ROM downloads the way you say they are and choosing what to release by whether or not a ROM had been downloaded frequently, we would never have gotten any of the games we wanted on VC, ever. in fact, the VC would be filled with utter crap that no one in their right mind would ever buy, instead of games like OoT, MM, any of the SMB series, any of the Sonic series, Star Fox 64, BoFII, SMRPG... and the list of good VC games that have been released that people actually want to play goes on. :)

i've been doing some thinking... by your logic, SSBFan1999 (by playing a ROM of a terrible game, we can prevent its release on the VC), I could sell you a rock -- not just any rock, either; this rock i am offering to sell you is a magic tiger-repelling rock. when i sell this rock to you, i will tell you that you will never be attacked by a tiger, ever. Since the probability of you being attacked by a tiger IRL is pretty freaking low (unless you live in Asia or like to jump into their cages at zoos or something), provided you go about the rest of your life not tempting fate, you will not be attacked by a tiger, and thus you will die believing that the rock I sold to you is indeed imbued with some kind of tiger-repelling powers.

in searching for and downloading this illegal ROM, you have figuratively bought a VC-game-release-repelling rock. if the game is truly that crappy, chances are it'll never be released for VC anyway (also, Nintendo does not seem to be interested in selling compilations of games in the form of individual releases, Super Mario All-Stars is a prime example), so by having downloaded and by playing it, even though Nintendo had no original plans to release it, you are tricking yourself into believing that whatever it is you're doing has worked. and if the game truly is never released for VC, you will continue to that whatever you did actually worked, even though it really didn't.

long story short, if you want to still go through with your plan, it's your call, but in reality it's a waste of time that could be better spent playing unreleased games that don't suck.

also, another thing to think about: many of the games that have been released for VC already have been circulated as ROMs on the internet for years already -- in some (NES, Atari, etc.) cases, perhaps even decades? If Nintendo truly followed the 'only games that aren't downloaded a lot will be released for VC' rule, we would never have gotten stuff like Super Mario RPG or Majora's Mask no matter how much we begged for it.

Is this serious? Nintendo has no idea if I am playing Mother 3 on emulator right now. No one does. I'm all alone. I could be doing anything.

Even if you are referring to the act of downloading the ROM and not the act of playing it (which doesn't seem to be what you're saying since you said we'd have to "suffer" through the bad ROMs), Nintendo doesn't have access to that data. They might see that it's available on some ROM site, but they don't know how many of us have downloaded these ROMs.

To be honest, yes I'm dead serious about it. In fact, I might as well download Action 52 BY ROM to prove my point.

good luck with that, lol. :)

ok so when i read this, i immediately pictured a new style of pokemon battle where each screen is a 'side' and you have to aim or shoot an attack at the opposing pokemon somehow (you can move your pokemon around with the D-pad) with taps or by flicking the stylus. attacks are chosen via a menu or something at the bottom of the screen.

I wouldn't trust what the rep said as absolute fact under ANY circumstances. Do you honestly think that Nintendo keeps their in-store reps up to date on this stuff? I don't.

Also, it was my understanding that the DSi actually DOES still have GBA hardware hidden inside, just without a GBA cartridge slot. Granted, I don't know too much about it, but I believe I read that before.

I still believe that Nintendo would break stupid records by not having a DSi VC. It's just a matter of time until something gets announced.

not to mention the fact that if the NOA president himself is denying it at the moment, with all the online furor over a DSi VC that rep could get in some seriously hot water for continuing to fuel the rumors.
