Glitchwerks : It's going to be interesting to see what happens when Sony and Microsoft bring out their new consoles and if all the rumors of being unable to play second hand games is true or not.

If that happens, I will perform the rite of ascension where I will rejoin the master PC race that I was descended from.

blacksharpiemarker: The fact that they decided to rehash that garbage Wind Waker title is offensive in itself.

If they're going to bother reselling old games, they could have at the every least focused on reinventing Ocarina of Time or Majora's Mask.

//Back to Skyrim I go!

They used an upresed/retextured OOT as a 3ds game, probably will do the same with MM. A 640x480 Ng6 game does not look good when blown up to 1080p, even with new textures. It's just too low poly.

If WW sells, which we all know it will, I expect Twilight princess sometime in the next few years.

Redoing old games for 1080p or HD has become pretty lucrative. Sony put out several collections so far, as have third parties, though poor Konami keeps screwing theirs up. Oddworld is prettying out all it's old games, redone for hd (or comepletly remade) and is even looking to finally make the next oddworld game.

Random Anonymous Blackmail: So far the only reason to by a Wii U...Wish they would release them to XBox.

Please tell me you're intentionally being that stupid.

As someone who is playing Majora's Mask on Project64, I am getting a kick.

Who cares? You can still use the Homebrew Channel in Wii mode: Source.

Have Ocarina of Time on my 3DS already, and even though the game is not worth getting te console for itself, OoT with improved graphic and 3D does help to justify getting the Portable.

/The other justifications being Kid Icarus and Pokemon X and Y

Didn't Nintendo post a big loss recently?

Has the Wii U been selling well?

It's going to be interesting to see what happens when Sony and Microsoft bring out their new consoles and if all the rumors of being unable to play second hand games is true or not.

I don't care what the law says, I have an internal sense of right and wrong....

I'll happily download the ROM of any game I've previously purchased legitimately.
