This just in via press release: At the Game Developers Conference, the President of Nintendo, Satoru Iwata announced partnerships with Sega and Hudson to offer downloadable access to their classic games via Revolutionâ€™s Virtual Console. Revolution owners will be able to relive their past gaming glories from the Sega Genesis console by playing a â€œbest ofâ€ selection from more than 1,000 Genesis titles, as well as games sold for the TurboGrafx console (a system jointly developed by NEC and Hudson).
Well, not all of them, but the best of them will be. These games join Revolutionâ€™s access to 20 years of fan-favorite Nintendo games from the NES, Super NES and Nintendo 64 eras. I guess weâ€™re looking at E3 to get a list of what classic SEGA & Nintendo games will be downloadable via its Virtual Console download service. Imagine if you told this to gamers 10-15 years back in time, the world would’ve exploded hehe.
