The Best system EVER on Virtual Console!

While it seemed like the Virtual Console couldn’t be packed with many other video game systems out there, Nintendo has really reached and has today delivered the Commodore 64 on its Virtual Console for the Wii. Released in 1982 as an at-the-time revolutionary computer, the Commodore 64 housed many classic 8 bit games of the early 80s. Although the C64’s VC compatibility was announced awhile ago, three of its games have just been made available today (no one at a timing this week; I guess this is a pretty big deal to Nintendo!): International Karate, The Last Ninja, and Pit Stop 2, each retailing for 500 Wii Points ($5). All of these games stand out as being awesome when I was about the age of five. Still, retro-aholics should rejoice in this news...along with the folks who are excited that Minesweeper is now on XBLA.
