Virtual Console

From Codex Gamicus
Jump to: navigation, search

Virtual Console give ones the ability to play classic Nintendo and Sega games from the NES, SNES, N64, Sega Genesis, NEC TurboGrafx and Commodore 64. Players buy these games at the Wii Shop Channel using "Wii Points". Points can be purchased online with your Wii, or in a store. The games generally cost less than $10. There are quite a few and Nintendo updates this service at least once a week. The games are played using the Wii Classic controller (all games), Gamecube controller (all games, but not very well with SNES games) or the Wii remote (NES/TG16/MD only).
