Online retailers opened sales and sold out while I was at a **** funeral. If I can't get one, I'm probably going to start hunting down scalpers. And doing nice things to them. Nice things.

I've bought a lot of PS1/2 games on PS3. Don't really need the additional hardware, even if it's kind of interesting. If Sony or Microsoft did it, they'd include a hard drive, Internet connection, and eshop homepage. These scalper prices might be worth it with those features and some more games.

[QUOTE="CaptHayfever, post: 1634436, member: 25169"]Sony's largely incompetent, & Microsoft hasn't been in the biz long enough. There is a Sega Genesis one, though.[/QUOTE]


Adding onto this: both of them have games from previous generation(s) for sale on their stores - plus, remember that these were clearly not the same kinds of games that exist on the NES or SNES mini, or even those Atari system remakes.

Yes it has. Though I think some of them were third-party. (I know Brazil had their own versions, but if I recall, Sega has a contract with Tectoy)

[QUOTE="Random User, post: 1634208, member: 35827"]I would hope so, but my instincts tell me that it's just a ROM they ripped off the internet like the rest of their old games.[/QUOTE]

Nah, the guy who was in charge of this development found the complete rom while working on star fox command. He wasn't legally allowed to release it so he held onto it. Star fox 2 wasn't released because of how close the n64 was coming out. Same tragedy as Mother 1. They also didn't know how to emulate the super FX chip with the virtual console so that's why no star fox 1 or Mario world 2 released on the virtual consoles along with star fox 2. I'm sure if Nintendo were able to do this back in the VC's prime they would've done it knowing the profit it would've brought. Nintendo holds onto their own IPs forever. Rom image included.

Lots of VC games' code bear comments from ROMs made for emulators, hence my cynicism.

Do you really think they'd release the unfinished version of the game when they have a more complete one?

The version of Star Fox 2 on this machine is going to be the full game, it's silly to assume otherwise.

Mario Bros 1 is the only such rom image with a few iNES lines as proven. No other VC games have these. Perhaps the original was lost or maybe when VC first launched, an employee got lazy. But remember its still Nintendo's intellectual property. Also, if it works perfectly then whats the issue?

I have faith this is the complete Starfox 2 rom image. Even the creator said he found it at Mario Club while working on Star Fox Command.

Let me put it this way.

It's in Nintendo's best interest to put the completed version on the SNES Classic and not just take someone else's ROM as that would probably anger a lot of people now that it's become a big selling point of the console.

I don't think the StarFox 2 programmers would have gone out and had a launch party last week if the release were just a hackneyed ROM that has been on the internet for years.

No it's all a coverup

But really if it's going to be a full release then that's actually pretty cool.

I agree that they're probably going to release the full game, but I have to point out that the console's selling points are irrelevant since they've already sold them all to scalpers and diehard fans. If they cared about the response of the public at large, they'd have made enough to sell some to them.

I'll believe it when I see it.
After the NES Classic was basically impossible to find for many, fans are no doubt wondering what the stock situation will be for the soon-to-launch SNES Classic. Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime said in an interview with Financial Times that Nintendo "dramatically increased" production for SNES Classic stock. He advised people not to pay more than the $80 sticker price on auction sites for the console, suggesting the system will be readily available.
