" Jorge from The Gamebag emailed Nintendo of America support about the lack of Virtual Console titles and Nintendo Channel. Here’s what they said…
We understand your concern about the lack of service on the VC as of late. Due to sales numbers being far greater recently on Wiiware than on Virtual Console, we have decided to steer in the direction of WiiWare.
Also, we in America have NO plans to update the Internet Channel or the Nintendo Channel. We hope you understand”
Incredibly depressing, more so when you consider the immense amount of high quality classics that have yet to hit the service (MMX1-3, EarthBound, Yoshi's Island, just to name a few)
Hope to here more on this soon.
