@DrFinkelstein The worst part is that it kind of makes me feel like it's an indication of when we'll see Picross E. After all, Mario's Super Picross released on the Wii VC in Europe in 2007, but never came to America, and both Picross eShop games are available in Europe.
I wish I knew... I bought actual paperback books of those kinds of puzzles and as far as I knew, picross sold pretty well. Even if it was more niche, how much does it cost in time and resources to release those games, already in English? What the hell.
Yeah, they're all live. The upgrades work pretty seamlessly (I got Super Mario World, owned/own the four that were/are $0.30, and left the other three alone). Haven't taken it for a spin just yet. Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate is pretty much consuming my gaming time...
Okay... I'm kind of confused. I suppose I just assumed that given that my Wii U eShop is linked to my Club Nintendo account, as was/is my Wii's Wii Shop Channel, that the "new" VC games would be available to me at the discounted price. However, I guess that would make too much sense. So, I have come to the conclusion that I will need to perform a full system transfer from Wii to Wii U in order to gain access to the discounted pricing. I don't want to do this. Can I not just select certain files/games during the transfer, or is it really an all or nothing thing? I really don't want to have to pay full price for Super Mario World again (as well as future titles I've already purchased via the Wii Shop Channel), nor do I want to lose everything saved on my Wii. Would someone mind clarifying the situation for me, please?
Can't you just copy and backup your games? Or does it wipe them off the account permenantly? That's stupid. I wish Nintendo actually bothered with tying them to the account, would make it so much easier.
Actually I was talking about the whole BC debacle.
Why make all the hoohaa about how much better it is to have an account system for your games if you cannot transfer them to the next gen like every other digital account system in existence? We never did get an answer from the Sony defenders on that one.
Blame the mighty Cell. Games were designed for that, Sony went another direction with the PS4 and now those games can't run on it without some serious software emulation. And if Microsoft is any hint, that will basically be a no-go if they even start it.
From what I understand, they can still be played but will probably come at an even slower pace than VC titles on the Wii U. It's just that they won't run directly off of the PS4 hardware and instead have to be streamed if I'm not mistaken. And before they get that up and running for all the game, and considering how obscure some PSN titles can be, I just don't see this working very well. Especially not for people like me who will not get this to run at all due to a slower internet connection.
