Revolution's virtual console: to rent or own?

Just how will gamers be allowed to access the classics via Nintendo Revolution's proposed virtual console? Nintendojo ponders the answer between owning, renting, and even subscriptions. From the article: "Revolution's Virtual Console is a core feature of the system, and it will act as an online store offering selections from Nintendo's vast video game back catalog. Yet the way in which these games are sold to consumers will greatly affect how each person experiences the classics."

Though owning is probably preferred by most, would prospective Revolution buyers be willing to rent or subscribe for a lesser fee?
