    In an Investor Q&A, Nintendo President Satoru Iwata discussed the Backwards Compatibility regarding the Wii U console. Specifically the continuation of selling software for the Wii. He elaborates on the significance of giving the consumer a large library during a console transition phase, reducing the amount of devices on the T.V stand and capturing the consumers who never played Wii. There was no mention of the GameCube or GBA being re-released on Virtual Console. Both of which have been speculated to appear on the service sometime in the near future.

    it doesn't matter if every type of game gets dlc if they are garbage. it's only when the top games have dlc then it becomes a @%$#%@$#.

    DLC is just a shitty excuse for an unfinished game.

    Not all the time. It can add on to what has already been presented.

    That's pretty rare to find but yeah I have to agree it's possible.

    However for most games it's just another shitty excuse for an unfinished game.
    3 DLC's for 20 quid and the whole game for 60 quid.
    That's not a game anymore it's just pure thievery imho.

    I've missed your reasoned and insightful analysis, NarutoFan. I really have.
