There are plenty of N64, SNES and certainly NES titles you would struggle to get for that sort of money.
Having every system it emulates anyway I know how difficult some titles are to get.
I really hope more consoles are added in the future, also would be awesome if they could give online capability to games like Goldeneye.
Would also give my right ball for a Panzer Dragoon Saga remake

But what's unknown is what titles will be offered. Sure, there are rare games on every system, but I doubt their library will include all publishers. And, what N64 title is worth more than $5?

I agree, PDS is great, but there's no way it could be done. With only 512M of flash (IIRC) how are you going to fit 4 CDs worth of information locally.

Its an impressive machine, but i just hope they stay away from making too many "cute" titles. One thing i love about the Amiga was its brilliant variety!! Of course the Amiga too had the cute game thing such as Pang, Rodland, Rainbow Islands..etc which i loved!.. but it also had the real gritty/hardcore games as well which i love MUCH more!.

Thats the "only" thing that has ever turned me away from Nintendo systems. The only Nintendo machine in my opinion that had some gaming grit was the SNES.

Problem is for the Amiga is that just how many games would make the grade?

Other consoles have better versions, then there is the legal wrangles of who now owns the Amiga versions. For Parasol Stars, do they need to speak to Infogrammes (swallowed Ocean) or speak to Taito?

There is no such confusion on the NES, SNES and N64 stuff, and thats as far as I think Nintendo will bother to go.

I doubt they would do arcade conversions when they could do the arcade games

I still dont think anyone will do Amiga games. UNLESS it is a company who only ever did Amiga games, never licensed their games to other platforms and are alive today ONLY to make money on their back catelogue.

I'd say the games that get converted, if it happens at all, would be ones like Team 17 or Sensible Software games. Ones that only came out on the Amiga, maybe.

Yes, the controls are something weird, I can't play well with it. Even the games are not interesting. I'm sad because Tecmo want to release Fatal Frame 4 (aka Project Zero 4), a survival horror for Wii only. I created a petition for ask them to release it as multiplatform. I know the petitions are 99% useless, but better than be silent. Please, sign it if you like this horror game series and don't plan to get a Wii!!!!
