    There's probably going to be the Ambassador's VC thing which they've had on 3DS and WiiU (selling old games for very little).

    I do not care about VC. It will be available when they think its ready. Be patient.

    I'll be too busy playing zelda and I am setsuna to care, but it would have been nice. Hopefully they'll take their time and do it right htis time and we get proper 60hz games. with 2x speed options.

    Sorry Bladexdsl, I didn't see you posting this here before I submitted it to the USN... Anyways, I agree with playing Zelda rather than old games. Why buy a new system only to play decades old games.

    I'm doubt most people were holding their pre-order ransom over VC. People are probably still gonna scream about it for the next couple of days.

    Me neither. But I would if the VC was decently priced which most of the time, it isn't.

    If you're actually upset that you can't play old games on your brand new system that has brand new games on day one, you are a baby

    With no d-pad it's probably for the best.

    Shovel Knight and Fast RMX as launch titles, I'll gladly take that instead of VC for the moment.

    Nintendo will fix that by releasing these for the masses: Joy-Con Plus

    I get why it has buttons over a d-pad but it's still a shit decision overall, for those that want to play a game that requires the precision of a d-pad the Joy-Cons are useless!
