More Turbo Games out on WiiU VC Today

Wait, this is the WiiU, not the Switch.

Now this thread is suddenly more interesting.

Nintendo doesn't have VC out for Switch yet, I am assuming.

Honest question: has Nintendo ever honored digital purchases across platforms?

I don't think they built the infrastructure for it (not that they would want to, if folks are willing to re-purchase games).

Anyway...just curious. Obviously, I believe that Nintendo should honor past digital purchases, simply as a matter of principal. I know there is little incentive to do this, unless enough parents complained. But even then....

If you purchased a VC title on Wii and want it on Wii U you can transfer them over. I never did because I prefer them on my CRT. But you can only have them in one place. Then if the title was upgraded you can purchase the upgrade for a small consideration.

Ok, that seems like a reasonable way to deal with it for "most folks" (who abandon older consoles for the shiny new one), but it stinks for folks who like to keep older consoles around.

Still, at least it is a step in the right direction (this *is* Nintendo, after all...)

However, it falls far short of the way it *should* work: multiple devices can simultaneously play the game (a reasonable number of licenses provided, by default...with ability to transfer a license at future dates).

:)

Next Up: I wonder if Nintendo will honor Wii VC --> Switch VC digital purchases?

Sadly, Nintendo hasn't announced jack shit about VC on Switch. I hope they do, though.

I had to check the calendar to make sure it wasn't April 1st.

It's odd they are still releasing games for a dead system, I can't imagine the sales numbers being worth it at this point.  Maybe this will allow for easier ports to Switch once they get the VC or it's equivalent up on it?

NICEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
NW: Hey, I made it on this psycho's Enemies' List, how about that ?? ;)

BT: Look at how the fake SFII' carts instantly sold out and were immediately listed on eBay before the flippers even took possession. Look at Nintendo's overpriced bricks. Look at the typical forum discussions elsewhere.

You can't tell most retro gamers anything!

Spenoza: The wannabe masculinity just overwhelms.

This is even more shocking than Shockman, to be honest.

Goddamn.
