Sounds more reasonable than anything else I've heard. Why not *signs also*

I'm gonna say Wii U VC, and more info on already announced games.

Lets hope I'm right in some aspect, but wrong in others.
Considering I've been playing Video Games since I was 3 years old, I'm still pretty terrible at them

I'll add some videos from some announced games like Bayonetta 2!


So there!


EDIT: Streaming directly to my new HD TV via the Wii U...Love it :D

35 minutes...hmmmm...

I'm expecting more from this rather than some obvious prediction. -_-

No mention of a Hardlock fix. Really...? That's the BIGGEST problem [I have no speed issues, personally] >->

Can't believe they're actually charging for Wii U versions of games you own too. They should be free.

Ahh... so a reduced price? Well, it's not a free update... but at least we don't have to buy the whole thing again!

all they have to do is change the wiiu OS to run wii stuff. and not have it boot in to wii mode. which is pretty doable.

Closed communities is a pretty cool idea, hope that it goes beyond Wii Fit U.

Then no GamePad use for them it seems... Should still be free though.

Agreed.

Though I wouldn't have minded if they let me at least pay with Club Nintendo coins. ):

@StudMuffin
Thanks, but I'm trying to watch it on my iPhone, and for some reason, I can't find the NA version on the UStream app and can't get any of the videos embedded on this page to play.

The greatly reduced prices of $1-1.50 was the best I expected and is reasonable. Obviously there's some development cost of updating the games to work on Wii U that they have to pay for.
