Punch-Out is on the 3DS VC if I recall. There's probably others as well.
Are there ANY VC games on the 3DS that are ALSO on the Wii U right now? Is it a coincidence that Balloon Fight is the one ambassador title that hasn't been officially updated yet, and it's also the one NES game from that list that's on the Wii U now? Maybe they're being very careful to not let a person buy a game in both places because they are indeed combining the systems later on, and don't want people to have bought something twice.
That's the obvious, consumer-focused thing to do, so it isn't likely to happen.
Cross platform, shared Virtual Console content, so I don't have to buy multiple copies of the same game. Please be this.
Discounts for buying the same game on multiple platforms and a clunky and overly-complicated way to transfer your save data between the two seems like the most likely scenario.
Oh that sounds good
It was bad because they didn't have a killer app to show that everyone was sure was going to be there, so it was kind of a disaster because we literally waited for the E3 after the system announcement to show the games and all the great reasons to buy one last holiday, but instead it just reiterated what the console was and they showed Nintendo Land.
Not getting 'hyped' for Nintendo this E3. Last years hype train crashed spectacularly.
This year they'll have some stuff to show like a not-NSMB Mario, Mario Kart possibly, Zelda possibly... it'll be better. How much better is the real question.
If games become cross compatible I'll be very happy though.
Yeah, Smash on 3DS is pretty much all I need. Some nice surprise anouncements like Revelations 2 wouldn't go amiss.
New Smash alone would make it a great E3 for Nintendo. Since that's already confirmed to be there, Nintendo will surely have a great E3.
This is very reassuring, hopefully this means you'll be able to play GBA titles portably as God intended.

Nintendo looking at possibly to bring back gifting, do a feature where some of your Wii U VC games can be playable on 3DS, and vice versa.
Savior = Wii Fit U (whether it will be one is up to debate, however)
Not saying she isn't, but can we have some genuine examples? Last thing I heard from her was about YouTube on 3DS... awkward.
I know this is sarcasm, but Emily has been reliable in the past. And judging by her scathing blog post about Iwata, she isn't a corporate ass kisser.
