If they could do it, I don't see why not. I suppose you wouldn't need emulation for something like Xenogears, necessarily, either - just program it to work with the Switch's architecture. Please note: I could be being hopelessly naive here. Laughing

Virtual Console not ready on day one. "More information to be shared in the future", we're told. "Please understand" can't have been that far away... Rolling Eyes

I wasn't expecting to have VC on day one if I'm honest, hopefully this means we are getting more than the standard NES/SNES/N64 libraries.

That's the thing, isn't it? I'm looking to be enthused about the Virtual Console again after the Wii U and 3DS offerings lacked most of what the Wii's had and didn't add a great deal (and the GBA/DS stuff went in the wrong place (although I could see why they did it that way)).

I think having the much rumoured Gamecube Virtual Console will bolster that for you, Zero. Myself and Andy were getting excited about having Path of Radiance on the go during a Monster Hunter sesh last night, for starters.

Maybe it's being held back so that they have time to revamp their dumb renting idea that was full of dumb?

PoR would be a huge for me as it's one I don't own for Cube as it's Ł90+ and if Nintendo had any sense they have games like that just before or around the launch of games in the series, like to me I would had all the Zelda's available day one on the Switch.

I'd also like to see them continue what the did on Wii and have Mega CD, Saturn, Dreamcast and other systems games on the VC even if it's the Xbox 360 port of Sonic CD.

Nintendo could if they wanted to have a bigger play on nostalgia if they go here's NES, SNES, N64, Cube, Wii, GB, GBC, GBA, DS along with 2600, Neo Geo, Turbo Grafx, Mega Drive.

As much as I love the enthusiasm, mas, the punters have to invest in the Switch before stuff like the Atari 2600 is viable on its VC. I mean, we should still be agog that the C64 appeared on the Wii VC. If you think about it, that's near total madness. Shocked

The free NES/SNES game for a month thing? Yeah I don't see that changing & I also think it's OK if the rumoured sub price of Ł20 (for a year) is correct.

Yeah, the free rental with a subscription that was half the price of elsewhere (where I rarely play my free games anyway) was fine.

If they wire online multiplayer into all VC games, I'd happily pay the Ł20. Heck, for that, I'd happily pay Ł20 a week.*

The Saturn is unlikely but it would be nice to see the Xbox 360/PS3 versions of titles like Guardian Heroes and Radiant Silvergun added. The good thing about Gamecube games is that they tend to be 1.6GB so won't take up as much room as say, a PS2 game. I'm not sure having Zelda games at launch would have been the best idea as everyone will be playing BotW. It will be at least 5 years until another Zelda, so the older games will be a nice boost for the series in between DLC.

Can see Mario 64 or Sunshine launching before Odyssey (Sunshine in the summer would be nice!). They have such a vast library that they don't really need the SEGA stuff on top, and they'll be wise not to dump it all there in the first 6 months, but also we don't want stuff like Pokemon Snap appearing 4 years in to the console's life...

I wish I could, GJones. I can more easily see them bringing out Sunshine two years down the line when nobody cares. Nintendo's done many great things, but their treatment of the VC is not one of them.

And I'd rather get a free game to own every month than a free game to rent + online multiplayer. Call it what you want, it feels like a cheap psychological trick to get people to buy the game after the month to me, and looking around the industry there's no excuse for it really.

I don't think it'll change either. Wishful thinking.

You could just not sign up to the online service, and buy a game every month.

@Zero I just thought with how well the NES Mini has done they could play the nostalgia card to loads of gamers

@gJones yeah I think it would have to be the PCS360 of Saturn games etc but would be cool

I think the online service is weird but would will all be playing Super Mario Kart online after the first month? This way we would all be playing at the same time.

Disagree with this. Balla quite rightly mentions that Nintendo's competitors have them whipped in regards to the free games with your online subscription side of things. With online play being put behind a paywall, I'd expect Nintendo to at least let you own a NES or a SNES game for as long as you're an active subscriber, considering Sony and Microsoft do the exact same but for much newer releases.

It's the only part of the Switch's overall premise that still rankles with me, to be honest.
