Well, it's a start.

We've gotten these games dozens of times over, though...I would've rather seen other launch games for previous systems.

I seriously hope there's a lot more than just this. Half of these games are already playable in multiple ways.

Give me stuff like Kid Icarus or Star Tropics.

Yeah, I was hoping for that but pretty much knew this would happen instead. I would have even liked it if Nintendo just dropped all the Black/Silver boxed NES games on day 1 (stuff like Pinball, Ice Climber, etc...)

We knew most of these from what Nintendo showed at E3 and the ESRB leak, the only one I didn't see before was Metroid but that seemed like an obvious choice anyway.

I was going to say this list is really pathetic but given that it is only 13 games out of 60 coming out for launch, I won't say that yet. They'll likely release a lot of big guns at the start but hold onto a few, which should leave some space for less popular titles (games that GAF wants).

A good strategy IMO is basically any franchise with multiple iterations per console generation should only contain 1 game from that generation at launch, which is probably close to what they're following.

At launch:
SMB
SMW
SM64
LoZ
LoZ: Lttp
LoZ: OoT
Sonic 1
etc.

For Future:
SMB3
SMW: YI
Zelda II
LoZ: MM
Sonic 2 and 3
etc.

EDIT: Don't take this bare-bones lineup so seriously, just some major franchise announcements. This is so far from a full lineup that it's hard to really offer any impressions of what they have in mind.

Where was this confirmed? I'd be happy at this point with 60 that would be great.

Well, I don't know what's the point of BC of old titles is if it's only gonna be like 30 or something at first... that's basically just Xbox 360 BC then, only difference is Nintendo's back catalog goes back way longer. It's not like putting the titles up takes any herculean effort. In the end, I assume the only reason they don't put more up is to give each title its 'spotlight' for more exposure and thus more $$$. Which, ya know, I don't care about.

Anyway, just give me Tetris Attack and I'll be done with this service!

It was said at the Nintendo Conference recently that there would be 60 BC titles for Japan before the end of the year... how that breaks down for US and Europe is not clear.

Not at all. It's fully backwards compatible with the Gamecube from day 1, the virtual console is much more akin to XBLA, which is on a much more anemic schedule.

XBLA titles have new functionality, HD graphics, online play... something to do with, ya know, effort. Nintendo VC titles - up to this point, anyway - are basically just equivalent to throwin' a ROM up online. If they were adding new stuff, maybe you'd have a point.

Serious question: Are these games going to be in 480p?

I'd probably bite on SM64 just to satisfy my Mario craving (it's ****ing launch for crying out loud). Was tempted to play it again on the DS but I'd rather play it on a big screen.

I believe so, at least at E3 I remember hearing they were.

New Virtual Console games are being developed too. I bet there's even effort included! :lol

So what? The service and content delivery is still far closer to XBLA than 360 backwards compatibility (who's natural comparable would be Wii GC playback), only Wii's significantly more loaded already in both areas. There's obviously reasons for that, but c'mon...

In delivery only, but that should be the easiest part. Like I said, it's only being done this way to give the titles more exposure and thus more $$$. Of course, if they get 60 titles before the end of the year and are consistent with releases it won't be terrible or anything... but I'm just saying, you can't expect me to be impressed with such a lackluster job. If they were adding stuff to these titles, then I'd understand.

And Microsoft is the constant target of bitching, moaning and whining about the glacial pace at which those titles are being released. You can't have it both ways; shoehorning network code, higher resolutions and new features into games never designed to accomodate those features takes time.

And last I heard all VC games would be running at 480p, but I've taken GAF at its word before only to be burned.

Hm, so I guess the difference between breakdown in Japan and US releases is pretty major, then. Japan gets a whole 30 more releases before the end of 2006!

I'd say pricepoint and the actual content itself is far closer to XBLA than Xbox playback as well. There might not be achievements or new visuals or online play (or there might actually, we don't know), but the VC and XBLA are basically identical concepts.
