I think it\'s awesome. In fact, sad to say, I\'ve found myself downloading games I really shouldn\'t have, because I already owned physical cartridges of them, AND had them on emulator on my PC. But there\'s something very sub-consciously appealing about having like ONE system to play all these cool games on. It\'s like a one stop shop of awesomeness. Honestly that\'s why I freakin\' love my Wii dude, it honestly turned me back onto games in a serious way after only playing them once in a great while for years. I never stopped loving them, just kind of lost interest.
But yeah, between being totally Gamecuve compatible, which is awesome because I went out and picked up a LOT of really good used GC games, and having the VC downloads, along with the WiiWare games (Dr.Mario Online, Lost Winds, etc.), I\'m pretty much in heaven. And that\'s not to mention the regular Wii games. In my opinion, $200 is a pretty damned good deal for a system that basically gives you like 8 consoles worth of games in one. That isn\'t to say however, that I\'m a fan of all this talk of \"One System\" in the future. I would not want to see Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo all on one console. No thanks, plain and simple. I think the diversity is good, and each company, especially Nintendo, would lose their identity in that kind of process.
Not only that, but even the DS is getting some patches with the DSiware and such.
Good stuff all around though. New games are great, but we should never forget the awesome games of the past.
