Nintendo's boss first addressed the question of how big the Virtual Console is in terms of revenue by stating that download sales have grown - but crucially didn't reveal what slice of that pie was down to retro games:
Regarding your question on the scale of Virtual Console title sales, the download sales as a whole for this (75th) fiscal year are 31.3 billion yen, and I have shared publicly that this is a 30 percent increase from the last fiscal year, but we have not disclosed the individual sales of Virtual Console titles only.
I don't care that much about Wii U 's VC since Wii's already has the games I really wanted and I don't need to buy them again.The only one missing is F-Zero GX,hopefully it will get the Wind Waker HD treatment.
This is why I feel mostly guiltless about PC emulation of old Nintendo games. That and the fact that I bought or rented most I play and payed much more to purchase them the first time while renting is close to their VC prices. Think of how many games are totally lost legally due to defunct hardware that plays the software, i.e. bad chips, dead battery packs, supply & demand inflation, etc. It is amazing my PC can emulate almost flawlessly but the architecture on my Wii U somehow needs it reproduced.
If it's something that will make you more money, then hire more people to do it. Porting games is a purely technical matter than needs none of Nintendo's core creative team to do, and could be outsourced to basically anyone.
Only Nintendo would moan about the amount of work they need to do to get all the old games on the e-shop. Nintendo is also the only company who moans about HD games being hard to make. Other company's don't moan, they just do!
Understandable, but may I suggest using all that hard-earned money to expand on human resources Hire some more people, people specific to a certian task. I mean, how hard is it to spend some of that extra cash (I know you have it ) to get more people working on the VC It's not like there's a shortage of programmers and game designers today.I more or less don't care for the obscure and lesser known titles, but give us all those big-hitters from back in the day. The popular games, the ones sporting the mascots. Those should be high up on the list as the main priority to release before everything else. There are still a bunch of Mario games missing. After all this time, it's still undoubtedly a pretty weak list, imo..What happened to the N64 VC And no mention of GameCube games, yet Wii games can be downloaded -.-
Also, Nintendo needs to develop an emulator for each platform, for each new destination hardware. 3DS is nothing like Wii U for instance. Every emulator is tuned for each game. You are downloading the emulator and the game.
@aaronsullivan allmost all of these titles are easily accessable and shouldn't have license issues and if their is in any way then Nintendo needs to make an effort to secure them. As far as the wii goes vc was available day 1 and we're hitting at the pace of 3-4 a week then and this was way before the wii blasted off to 100 million in sales so I'm sorry I just can't give Iwata nor Nintendo a pass here on this because even though the wii u is a flop(I guess 10 million in sales is for the dogs these days for 3rd parties) there is still no real good excuse for the torturous pace of 1 vc game a week for the better part of the last 2 years!!!. They should really stop being cheap greedy people and add staffing to the vc program to expedite. Lastly what the hell took ANYBODY so long to pose this question to Nintendo anyhow None of these game sites have asked them for whatever reason and from all places the question came from one of their own investorsBut still Nonetheless Iwatas response is a big heaping pile of crap!! Sometimes I don't know who's more full of it him or Reggie!! Sorry....
This is all hypothetical, but I'm just trying to place some context around what you are asking for. None of this includes the need to play through this stuff to check for Nazi symbolism and other imagery or political statements that cause serious issues around the world.
@aaronsullivan accessible meaning not much effort should be required. I understand the contract thing as I deal with contracts as well as exclusive deals that may come along with them. But my educated guess coupled with my following the industry closely all my life is what's behind that list. Atari, now a small company in NYC of merely 12 employees would love to tap open any revenue stream that comes their way. How do I know I spoke with them on the phone the old fashion way and they are very interested in spreading their classic IPs around. They can't afford to be exclusive with anyone they're looking to grow and not limit their IP to the Flashback consoles! I wish them well! And none of their games or any on my list would be being unearthed from 40 years ago they've all been utilized in recent times. Taito, whose tons of classic IP is owned be Square Enix, has several vc titles in wii u in japan right now! Midway published the MIDWAY ARCADE ORIGINS not too long ago which was a disc of 30+ classics for the 360/PS3. These games were already published on mobile phones. Activision who unlike Atari doesn't need the money, is always publishing their 2600 classics all over the place. Sega is just being the new Sega not the old Sega of the 90s. Namco has only put out limited classics on wii u here and wii shop prior while they sit on the rest of their classics in which a TON of then were published on the Wii shop in japan but for whatever reason never came to the states! 15 Data East classics in disc were published on wii only a few years ago. Konami seems to just be on the fence and just not interested at all yet a few of their classics are just now starting to appear on PS4! . Capcom while thankfully has been behind wii u is STILL leaving a ton of their games in the vault! Y Finally while many are already aware, many of the turbographx 16 games on my list ,30+ vc titles are already on wii u in japan but not here!! Qbert was just posted on Ps4/One. Colecovision flashback has a bunch of arcade classics on it like jungle hunt & frenzy!! Minecraft I mentioned only cause it just baffles me that the game is on everything save Nintendo formats! Yea there may be a few challenges there like Popeye but majority of titles listed here are obtainable and just takes some effort. I myself do not bother nor have the time to bother with roms or emulaters and I like most avid gamers would rather pay for a legit copy of a game digital or what have you.Sure they're a few gems out there that some joe owns the rights too in say Gary,Indiana but this list was crafted with some thought and realism in mind.As far as Nintendo eating some loses to get this done, we all know the $$ they have. Sometimes you have to spend to earn. Of course were not seeing the numbers but They clearly need to hire more staff to expedite this to AT LEAST DO BETTER than 1 vc game a week!!! And in case you didn't notice, I'm not the only one ragging here! Lol! Enjoy your 4th of July!!
@Koz Legally, quite a lot actually. Video game restrictions in Australia and Europe would ikely require them to get rated or re-rated based on modern standards, many times third party rights-holders (publishers, depending on contractual terms, developers/musicians) are difficult to track down and come to an agreement, and quality assurance teams need to playtest on modern hardware. Some publishers might not want old games to be released - capcom might not want to call attention to Megaman Legends due to PR reasons, Nintendo might not want to release more modern titles like Double Dash if it will cut into Mariokart sales on the Wii-U due to the similarities of the title or arguably higher replayability of the VC title.
Alot of Games need to be put on the Virtual Console for Example Clayfighter series, Pro Wrestling ,Dragon Warrior series, Alpha Mission, Kung Fu, Karate Champ, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Track & Field 1 & 2, Willow, Yo! Noid, Act Raiser, Batman Returns, Battletoads in Battlemaniacs, Chrono Trigger, Final Fantasy series SNES, Illusion Of Gaia, Lufia II, Mario is Missing, Robocop vs Terminator, Rock n Roll Racing, Secret of Evermore, Secret of Mana, Star Fox, Super Battletank, Super Bowling, Super Double Dragon, Super Mario RPG, Super Star Wars series, TMNT IV, ect..... 153554b96e
