Games for these platforms will be sold for the Wii at a small fee per game to be paid via Credit Card or a 'Wii point card'.
There are already over 24 Japanese companies as officially confirmed supporters, and there will be games for platforms like: Sega Mega Drive/Genesis, PC Engine/TurboGrafx-16, Famicom/NES, SuperFamicom/SNES, N64 and MSX. There will be selled brand new games as well as remakes of some games too.
There are quite strong rumours that will be very good for many people if becomes a reality, specially for amiga and ex amiga users. It is very speculated that Amiga 500 games will join the Virtual Console fold very soon.
Many of us hope strongly that this rumour becomes finally a reality. This could be very good for both Amiga and the New Gen Nintendo's console, Wii.
