Virtual Console

In an article ranting about Nintendo’s poor support of the Virtual Console, Kotaku writer Jason Schreier recently got in contact with a Nintendo of America representative to ask about the service on the Wii U. While the rep said that they couldn’t share any specifics, he did tell him “we are moving ahead with development of Virtual Console for Wii U, and we plan to make it so you can play it on the Wii U GamePad alone.”

I’ve blasted Nintendo for their treatment of the service before, so I’m not going to repeat myself here. Despite my ranting and raving, I really want to see Nintendo’s Virtual Console do well, and letting people play their older titles on the Gamepad is a good first step. The next step would be to put Virtual Console games on the eShop and, you know, consistently support it.
