    I was excited for Super Mario World, but then I bought a copy for 20 bucks at the flea market for my SNES. So no need for me to get it now.

    And to you European users, yes, all games will be the 60Hz NTSC versions! Also the Japan only title Mario's Super Picross will see a release here.

    I wonder how long till more games come. Only confirmation we have is Super Metroid on May 15 as far as I know.

    The 3DS virtual console is pretty bare bones, I wonder if this will be more like 3DS or more like Wii as far as releases go.

    I may be more likely to buy since I don't have to go through the middle man of buying a block of Wii points but it still sucks that these games are tied to the console and not my account so maybe not.
