Several readers have tipped us off to an
online survey, conducted by a marketing company for Nintendo, used to probe gamers for their opinions about the
"Virtual Console" service. Keep in mind that the screenshots from the survey are merely mock-ups and do not
reflect how the final product will appear. What is important to note, is that the survey focuses on three different
"Game purchase. You may be able to buy retro games and save them to the Nintendo Revolution's memory, so they are always available.
Game rental. You may be able to rent games for a specified period.
Game subscription. By paying a monthly subscription fee, you will be able to add a certain number of games to your personal game library each month. You will be able to play all of the games in your library, including those that you added in previous months, as long as you continue your subscription. Note that one subscription option would allow for 'unlimited' access to the Virtual Console library. This means you could play any Virtual Console game as long as you maintained your subscription. "
