Freaking Jumpman Junior. Contrary to popular belief, my username is not derived from Mario's original name from Donkey Kong.
I would have preferred the regular Jumpman but this will do just as well.

I still have that game and my C64 in my closet along with my Atari 2600

What do you think the prices of this games are going to be?
There´s a bunch of people who think that 5 dollars for a SNES game and 8 dollars for a N64 one is too much.
I´ll be pleased to pay US$8 to play Mario 64 on all it´s glory.

I hope this includes the basic programing screen :3
Just for portable nostalogic purposes.
That and a virtual keyboard atleast.

It'll be interesting to see the C64 on the list.
I wonder if the Atari collection might make a visit.
Honestly, Im hoping for the Jaguar collection

Something you just cant emulate right now.
A console that was lost for good.
Maybe they'll have a console memorall thing or something like that.

Oh man, that HMD mask better come out along with Virtual Boy games on the VC list.
Image all those old games with a next gen HMD mask. Now thats gonna be great xD

I can play commodore 64 games for free on my modded xbox. Or if I ever have the space I can use my actual c64. I got a MMC cartridge so I could use SD cards on the C64.

While this may expose those great games to some people who would otherwise not experience them, I find it hard to get excited about this. I mean, I've already got a C=64 emulator for my PC and if I realy want something that hooks up to my TV there is always this.

I'd go dig my real C=64 out of my parents attic if the 1541 ][ wasn't shot. :/

I was so happy about the virtual console, until they announced the prices. Then I was only slightly happy about it.

I am now just as happy as I once was.

The news of c64 with nintendo isn't that new i've known about this for a while now, and some games like impossible mission 1, california games, winter games, summer games I&II, and the last ninja trilogy will have remade graphics for the ds version. Im not sure if the wii version will have updated graphic's or not, but they are actually making this for the psp too for some odd reason. Some of these games actually aren't comming out till next year sometime, so till then i hope they remake some of the hundred's of rpg's like the ultima series.....that is if you old enough to know what real games were.

P.S You can't get excited untill the prices come out, and they better be like 50 cents each at the most.

Hmmm lets see with 20 years of inflation, and the way currency grows in this day i woud have to say not more than about $1 or $2 considering that they are about a few cents on the net now.

P.S Summer games is supposed to post your world records online, and anyone can challenge each other making it have unlimited replay value.
