just as the both of you will always be around to harangue them, I'm sure. Can we keep the social commentary to a minimum, please, and focus on the topic at hand?

Money is what's wrong with us. Haven't you read the VC updates for 99¢ posts? Haha. That game's still pretty expensive...

no offense, but one copy of Xenoblade versus 45 or so Wii U VC games... it's a no-brainer
and by 'no-brainer' i mean 'choose Xenoblade' :3

... in all seriousness i meant no offense, though, i was just messing around. :3

Why should this be free?

Because it utilizes features the Wii U is based around, i.e. Miiverse, gamepad use, and the activity log. Something I find would be very fun to take advantage. I'm so sorry I want to enjoy the most out of the games I buy and the system I paid for.

You bought and paid for a Wii, which is what you purchased your VC titles on. You didn't buy them for a Wii U, you bought them for your Wii. Nintendo has graciously provided you the option to transfer these games to your Wii U if you like, but you didn't buy them for that system, therefore they're under no obligation to provide a version recoded to utilize the features of your new console for free.

I'm not saying it's you personally who's been gung-ho for buying digital vs. physical, Chrono, but I know for a fact Waltz has been all for it — this is what happens when you buy things digitally, and I guess for some of y'all it's a 'worst case scenario' kind of deal. You purchased a license to play your VC titles on a Wii, with no GamePad, no Miiverse, no savestates. The agreement between Nintendo and you when you purchased the game was laid out quite clearly in the fine print. They don't have to provide you a free copy of the Wii U VC version of your Wii VC title no matter how much you want them to do so. It'd certainly be nice if they did, but they have the right to decide against it.

Nintendo is being anti-consumer and gouging. No cross-compatibility with the 3DS - I can't just copy my existing copy of Balloon Pop over - and the Wii U can't even stream Wii VC games without costing extra.

Well, peeps, if you want to know the reason that the industry is flagging, it's because of that. Cheap gamers that refuse to support the products they claim to love.

@Bankai - I thought you were for people being paid for their work, and against the devaluation of products? This is Nintendo doing work to improve the Virtual Console. And unlike others, they're asking to be compensated for it. Just because others are saying "we'll do it for free", why is it a bad thing because Nintendo doesn't feel they can do the same thing at no cost?

thank you for putting my thoughts into words.

no, but you are suggesting that people who have purchased it for one console should be able to download a version updated for use on another console for free. It's the same principle, you're paying for the same exact game twice, but this time around it's able to take the fullest advantage of the current console. If you don't want to pay, fine — play it in Wii Mode. No one's forcing you to pay for the Wii U VC version, you're welcome to keep using the Wii VC version of said games on your Wii U.

@TBD: It's more of the fact that Nintendo is doing this out of pure greed. I just never thought that they would charge for updates, but I should have known. It's really the idea behind it that bothers me more than anything else.

If this was for the Wii itself, you might have a point about 'greed' and paying for updates, but it's for the Wii U, a brand new system. For them to go out of their way to even offer the updated VC titles is a good thing, much less to offer people who've already bought the games for their Wii a discount on the updated versions.

Again, it's an option. If you don't like it, no one's forcing you to pay for it.

hey guys, we understand that the video has been removed — please, if you're going to post a link to the same video hosted on another site, make sure the site doesn't ask our users to download anything. We'd all love to be able to trust everything we see available on the internet, but in truth there's no telling what's lurking out there on file-sharing sites waiting to bite, and downloading an .exe from a site you've never been to before is a serious red flag. If the video is no longer viewable over the internet and someone wants to go find it to download, they can take the risk and google it up for themselves. Thanks in advance! :3
