Even US4.50 is a bit steep, for pre-32-bit era games anyway. I'd pay that for games that I know are good, but if they were like $1-2 ea I'd download ten at a time just to try them out on a console. They'd be better off after the protection is broken too.

Damn DC link bug...

I dunno, I'm probably more likely to download 10 old games at 4.50 than I am to go out and buy a new one. Just cause most newer games are generally beaten quite quickly.

I agree so far as the good games go, but remember there was just as much shit back then too. At US$1-2 each I'd happily download ten of those shitty games, but at 4.50 I'd download zero, and save my cash for the relatively few good ones.

That is, unless they're planning on limiting the libraries to the stuff that sold well the first time, in which case I've no complaint.

$4.50 for a downloaded NES game? No thanks... If it was more along the lines of $15-25 for 30 or so games, I'd consider it. $10 for a N64 is a good price though. SNES games... well, if you could download it to a DS, then it'd be very interesting. Portable SNES play

Is that the article that talks about Virtual Console games being $5-10? Or the publisher free, non Virtual Console game downloads? ie. Xbox Live Arcade.
Virtual Console prices haven't been announced yet. We only know how much the new, little games will be.

I'm not really into the classics, but if I find a game that I really like i'll pay that much for it.

Hopefully they will have demo versions of them all like Live Arcade.
