So this is for the person who:
- Didnt already have a wii but wanted one
- Has no interest in virtual console games
- Isn't buying a wii u
What the hell is nintendo thinking?
There are millions of people in that position. $300 is a lot of money, $99 is not. Nintendo is making a good move by releasing this. Most people don't play virtual console games on their big plasma TV anyways, that's why SNES/NES/N64 emulation is so big. This is going to sell well, I don't see anything wrong with it.
Have to admit I'm one of those people. Metroid Prime 3: Corruption, Metroid: Other M, and Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword are a few games I've missed out on being an Xbox 360 owner. After following along with the Giant Bomb crew on Wii U launch day and getting an idea of what to expect going forward, I don't think the Wii U is for me. At least not yet.
