Well so far the Nintendo hasnt messed up except for giving it an awful name. They seem to be the only hope at a succesful console launch :P
Well you can tell from the price of it that its not really built for graphics but more fun. So they took the Xbox arcade thing one step further and now you can buy and play N64 and other Nintendo games by downloading them to the Wii using Virtual Console which is a sort of emulator thing. I think its a good idea even if im not getting it and who cares if it seems money grabbing....they need a break after making their console soo cheap. Heres the list of games that should be available at launch:
1. Bonk's Adventure
3. Duck Hunt
6. Kid Icarus
7. Legend of Zelda, The
8. Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
9. Mario Kart 64
11. Mortal Kombat
12. New Adventure Island
13. Ninja Gaiden
16. Prince of Persia
19. Rayman 2
20. Sonic the Hedgehog
21. Star Fox
22. Super Mario 64
23. Super Mario Bros
24. Super Mario Kart
25. Super Mario World
26. Tecmo Bowl

Not more? Well, the good one is there, but I miss some games from the amiga.
And things like sam & max and day of the tentacle. I know it will come more but I would say its a bit weak list when we look at the massive number of games out there. It could be more at launch.
Bonk's Adventure: Hey my father said he played that as a kid. Maby I should try it too.

Well they also have 5 more titles which should be available at launch but they havent revealed them yet. I could be kept happy for a couple of days with the list soo far ^_^ I'm sure they'll make more when its released. Its not really top of their priorities i guess.
