GDC 06: Revolution Goes Retro
TG-16 and Genesis games due out for Nintendo's new console.
March 23, 2006 - In a press release simultaneously with an announcement made during Nintendo's keynote speech at GDC 2006 this morning, Nintendo announced that Sega and Hudson have signed on as partners for the Revolution's Virtual Console service. With this, the emulators will be best games from the two companies for the TurboGrafx-16 (or PC-Engine, as it was called in Japan) and Sega Genesis will be downloadable and playable for the Revolution.
Curiously, only Sega Genesis games were mentioned as planned for the Virtual Console system in the deal with Sega (um, hello? Master System? Saturn? Game Gear? 32X?!?), but the partnership promises that many of the best out of the Genesis' 1,000+ gaming library will be available for the Revolution. Individual deals will have to be worked out with publishers for titles to be released on the Revolution, but with a growing interest in classic gaming, publishers and license owners will hopefully be fast to get on-board with Genesis support. And considering that most of the TurboGrafx-16's games released were published and/or developed by Hudson and NEC, it seems that the vast majority of games for the system will automatically fall into that partnership without much more licensing work from the company.
With NES, SNES, N64, and now Genesis and TG-16 on-board, the Revolution has got years of gaming already ready to play as soon as it launches later this year. Look for more news on supported systems and licensed games for the Nintendo Virtual Console as things develop.

And there has been no better reply to such an awesome set of news than this Buro. Phantastic Tyming-Buro Destruct said:
i'd assume a monthly charge of like $20-$25 a month and unlimited downloads therein. but new games coming out all the time, and so sure you might be able to download all the games you want there will still be more games being added and more reason to stick around. or the same rate a month but a limit of downloads a month. or $1.00 a game and unlimited downloads. i think the last one would be the best, especially if nintendo can up it with an expansion pack that allows saturn, dreamcast, and other games.broken said:I only wonder how this service is going to work.
Flat fee per game?
Variable depending on game "value"?
Maybe a flat monthly fee that allows 25 downloads or similiar?
