Nintendo has told Eurogamer it has "no plans" to re-assess the price of a Virtual Console game on Wii, despite them being as expensive as newly developed titles on the (now well-established) WiiWare channel.
"We're currently pleased with the uptake of WiiWare and DSiWare in the UK (including the Virtual Console service) and believe the content on all these services continues to become more interesting and attractive to people over time," a Nintendo spokesperson explained.
"As such, we have no plans to look at changing the pricing structure for them."
These emulated NES, SNES, Mega Drive, Master System, N64, NeoGeo, TurboGrafx-16, C64 and Arcade games fetch anywhere from 500 Wii Points (£3.50/€5) to 1000 Wii Points (£7/€10).
During Hanabi Festival periods - where Japanese oldies are offered to the West for the first time - prices go even higher.
