It is a rather disappointing list. There are:
12 NES games
2 SNES games
1 N64 game
10 Sega Genesis games
5 TurboGrafx 16 games
And, yes, we did not get that wrong, there will only be two SNES games and one N64 game. The two SNES games are rather disappointing too, F-Zero and Sim City. The one N64 game will be, obviously, Super Mario 64. It is rather strange that Nintendo is offering more Sega Genesis and TurboGrafx 16 games than their own ones. Maybe they are trying to start off strong with the other two company's consoles.
NES games will start at 500 Wii Points, SNES 800, N64 1000, Genesis 800, TurboGrafx 16 games will be 600. I love the fact that "start" is thrown in there, which makes us here at GoNext think that some games will be more than others. This might happen if Nintendo can not get a good deal with 3rd parties and have to give them a little more money or something such as that. Or enhanced games that Nintendo may have redone.
Lets all hope that the SNES and N64 games are released more steadily in 2007. Check out the full game list below.
"Virtual Console talk: NES games start at 500 Wii points, Super NES games start at 800, and N64 titles start at 1000. Sega Genesis games start at 800 Wii points, TurboGrafx 16 titles start at 600 points. Take note of the wording…all purchasts start at a certain point. It leads me to believe that certain titles may be more.
