Missed it by one day....Donkey Kong was on sale till 8/13.
Sadly for me, this was part of my motivation to pick up the console. I knew I was going to get it eventually and F zero and Metroid and Punchout!! for 30 cents with the new features sounded cool. Found a nice sale on the console and jumped on it. I only missed balloon fight.
I am still waiting for my Wii VC purchases to be available on Wii U (reduced price), I have several games and not that I know of are available yet and I plan on upgrading them. I know SMB3 is coming so I will get that.
Isn't Nintendo launching an online version of the eshop? It would be nice to know when these games are coming out without having to use my wii u.
