Wii virtual console details

Kyle Orland

Computer and Video Games has put up an excellent interview that answers some of the lingering questions about the Wii virtual console. Among the interesting points:

  • The virtual console controller will not work on GameCube games, but the GameCube controller will work on Virtual console games. (To recap: VC controller + GC game = NO. GC controller + VC game = YES)
  • NES virtual console games can be played using the packed-in remote.
  • Games are locked to a specific system on download and can't be transported from house to house on an SD card.
  • Games can be re-downloaded for free in case of deletion or system failure.
  • Gamers can store up to 10,000 VC points ($100) on their account at once.
Personally, I'm stoked that my GameCube controllers will work on any virtual console downloads, as I wasn't relishing spending $80 for four classic controllers just to play some multi-player Bomberman.
