    IIRC, Agito is just for the PSP, and what TSPRGs are you talking about? Yes you can download PSP games from the PS3, but that's to transfer it to your PSP.

So now Nintendo can sell its few good GC games to the vast Wii user base who (quite reasonably) did not get GCs because most of the games weren't that great.

    2) Nintendo systems even more than other gaming systems are always dealing with new users. The Gamecube was released in 9/2001, it is 9/2008 now. That is 7 years. A kids who were 1-4 when the GC came out (and very probably not playing video games at that age range) are now 8-11, and quite possibly own Wii's.

    It is also lot easier to download something from the Virtual Console, than going out finding some used GC then finding the appropriate used games for it.

    This is also why companies like Square Enix can get away with so many re-releases for the DS and such.

    Nintendo made a totally reasonable and smart business move especially since the Wii has such a HUGE base. So honestly vphamv/Jyuu I don't really understand why you guys are flailing your sarcasm sticks.

    As for the DSi.... =_= thats kinda fail but I have no doubt that at the very least Japanese school girls are gonna inhale that stuff like no other. So again a good business move for certain demographics.
    So this is the best reason to re-release GC games as Wii games instead of GC games, because some people didn't get it last gen. I was under the impression that the Wii was revolutionary, and it makes you play video games in a different way while the other two systems are just about graphix. This is totally next gen gameplay. lolololol

    Giving people(including me) who already own the GC games they wanted as brand new Wii games isn't justifiable imo. What's so next gen? Oh right, Motion Plus, what the original Wiimote was supposed to be.

    I like my DS Lite, the DSi on the other hand is just like the PSP3000. Pass.

    SD talks a lot about the PS3, but actually knows nothing about it.

    Then you buddy, are a tool... to advertising. And vphamv your opinion fails/does not matter in the face of 32.71 million consoles sold since launch for the Wii (source: http://www.vgchartz.com/). Evidently some people liked it, and I really doubt all 33 million of those buyers were like ZOMG THIS ISNT REVOLUTIONARY after they got it.

    Btw the GC games arn't being released as Wii games... they are being released as Virtual Console games, and that has been around since the start...

    Oh ya and I'm pretty sure the DSi will NOT be able to play GBA games, because they dont have a gba slot. But then they may make it so you can buy gba games from the DSware store, and download them to an sd card via the sd card slot.

    It sounds good, but until my current DS explodes, I'm not buying. Better audio and a Camera really won't make a huge difference for me, I've got an iPod and my 10 megapixel camera for that.

    Sure there will be some games that use the camera, but its not like its going to be a HUGE difference, unless there's a game which uses photographs as textures to procedurally generate a game world for you to play in... Wow, I just wrote my concept of a game which focuses on the use of real pictures to give you a special in game experience (its bound to be unique).

    Jeanne D'Arc, Valkyrie Profile 1 & 2, FFT: WOTL, etc. Oh cuz I was gonna hope that I could play Jeanne D'Arc on my PS3 since I can buy it there for 30 bucks.


    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
    before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends

    ^An actual used copy of Jeanne D'Arc is only $15-20 if you had a PSP. xD Also, VP2 is only for the PS2. o.o

    Sigh....no, you have a broken sarcasm meter.

    It's going to be on the Virtual Console, sure about that? How many MBs can you download with that storages space of the Wii when GC games can be more than 1GB? I'll tell you right now the first Pikman is over 1GB, just google for yourself.

    I've got an interesting concept already. I just need to learn how to implement it...

    But besides that, they'll probably make something like the eyetoy, but with the DSi, so it'll be portable...
