Nintendo 64 library headed to Wii U Virtual Console

Nintendo 64 library headed to Wii U Virtual Console Nostalgic fans will be able to play their favorite Nintendo 64 games via the Wii U's Virtual Console in the near future.
The games had been available for the Wii's Virtual Console, but the games did not make the migration to the new console.

Nintendo did a small confirmation via the Virtual Console site, stating "Check back regularly for the latest releases, including the future addition of titles from the Game Boy Advance and Nintendo 64 systems."

There are a plethora of legendary games for the N64 including Goldeneye, Super Mario 64 and Super Smash Bros. but it is unclear what games will reach the Wii U at launch.

Unfortunately Goldeneye will never come. Or at the very least will be highly unlikely.

I hope Nintendo rethinks their pricing strategy by the time these come out. I mean I love me some classic games but overall the price is too high.

So you think Nintendo (or any game company for that matter) should allow people to play their ROMS they stole off the internet on their console? I agree the prices are bit high but that statement is ridiculous.

Seriously it wouldn't hurt these companies to sell the games for a dollar or two tops, considering what phone apps cost for NEW games. (Though the movie industry could learn a thing or two as well, though it is getting marginally better...)

I can agree with that.. Make them inexpensive enough and available and people will pay for them. I just cannot condone stealing any games, software, or movie/music like that. High prices or the age of the game/movie/music does not justify that to me.

With you all the way on that statement.
