    The thought of him having one makes me nauseous. No man likes the sound "...uhh" uttered by another man in that context. No man![face_plain]

    [link=http://www.nintendojo.com/infocus/view_item.php?1162353964]Apparently[/link], a new Smash Bros trailer will hit at Nintendo orld 2006.

    [link=http://www.nintendojo.com/infocus/view_item.php?1162304957]There will be a Wii model with DVD playback in japan[/link], which isn't that surprising, as there was a Gamecube model with DVD playback released there as well.


    [link=http://www.planetgamecube.com/newsArt.cfm?artid=12326]And we have the Virtual Console launch window (before the end of Dec) title list[/link]:

    USA:

    NES: Mario Bros., The Legend of Zelda, Donkey Kong, Donkey Kong Jr., Ice Hockey, Pinball, Soccer, Tennis, Urban Champion, Wario's Woods, Baseball, Solomon's Key

    SNES: F-Zero, SimCity

    N64: Super Mario 64

    Sega Genesis: Sonic the Hedgehog, Altered Beast, Golden Axe, Columns, Ecco the Dolphin, Gunstar Heroes, Space Harrier II, Toe Jam & Earl, Ristar, Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine

    TurboGrafx16: Bonk's Adventure, Super Star Soldier, Victory Run, Bomberman '93, Dungeon Explorer

    Japan:

    Famicom: Ice Hockey, Urban Champion, Legend of Kage, Gradius, Gomoku Narabe, Soccer, Super Mario Bros., Xevious, The Legend of Zelda, Solomon's Key, Tennis, Donkey Kong, Donkey Kong Jr., Ninja Jajamaru-kun, Pinball, Baseball, Mario Bros., Wario's Woods

    Super Famicom: F-Zero, R-Type III, Super Castlevania IV, Contra III, Street Fighter II, Donkey Kong Country, Super Mario World, Mario's Super Picross, Sim City, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, Fire Emblem: Monshou no Nazo

    Nintendo 64: Super Mario 64

    Mega Drive: Ecco The Dolphin, Gunstar Heroes, Golden Axe, Columns, Shadow Dancer, Altered Beast, Space Harrier II, Sonic the Hedgehog, Toejam and Earl, Puyo Puyo, Ristar

    PC Engine: Bonk's Adventure, Necromancer, Super Star Soldier, New Adventure Island, Dungeon Explorer, Battle Lode Runner, Victory Run, Bomberman '94


    Europe seems to, more or less, be getting the same slate as the US.

    NES games start at 500 Wii Points, Super NES games start at 800 Wii Points and Nintendo 64 games start at 1,000 Wii Points. Sega Genesis games start at 800 Wii Points and TurboGrafx16 games start at 600 Wii Points. Wii Points can be purchased online or at retail at an MSRP of $20 for 2,000 points.




    So, yeah, Japan's 16-bit lineup totally dominates the US lineup...geez.

    Well, we now know that we won't have any Metroid to play till Prime 3 now. Would've been awesome if they had Super Smash Bros on there to go along with Super Mario. :(

    I'm also sad that there's no Duck Hunt. :(

    I don't think it's confirmed that that is the 100% list. Secondly, they'll be adding more titles every month.

    If you follow the link, you'll see it's a Nintendo press release, where it specifies 30 VC games (plus 32 Wii games).

    Though I'm hoping we'll see some of those titles from the Japan list added in short order.

    Well, all I was going on was that there was a blog at IGN where the author (Bozon, I think his name is) was listing his top ten anticipated Wii launch titles, and the tenth he couldn't list because it was an as-yet-unannounced VC game.

    I noticed there was Wii demo kiosk being set up at the Babbages in the mall when I stopped by earlier today. I never realized how small the the thing was. Hopefully within the next day or two it should be playable. I was surprised that EB Games across the way didn't get one. I'll take a pic of it if I can.

    That's pretty much how big it is. It's the same size as the slimmed PS2. I thought it was pretty awesome, nonetheless.

    The guy that was setting it up for some reason ended up messing around with the 360 kiosk when he was using the remote to find the channel or something so you can use the Wii.

    Sonic is just speculation, though they have hinted that they've talked about the possibility, at the very least. Snake opened the door for a wide variety of 3rd party character speculation, afterall.

    [link=http://www.nintendojo.com/infocus/view_item.php?1162655736]More details on the Virtual Console and controllers[/link]

    Downloaded VC games will be tied to a specific console and cannot be played on another Wii. There will be a means of tracking what games have been purchased, so that if you have to delete a game to free up space, you can redownload it free of charge.

    A digital copy of the manuals will be included with the VC titles as well.

    Only GCN controllers will work with GCN games- the Classic Controller will not (which seems very odd, given that it includes dual z-buttons placed like a GCN).

    Classic Controller, GCN Controllers and the Wiimote (for NES games only) can be used to play VC games.

    When multiple controller types are plugged in, the VC looks at the following for priority: Wiimote, Classic Controller, then GCN/Wavebirds, though games reuqiring a specific type of control (analog sticks, for example)will not work unless that type of controller is available.
