The Virtual Console has been a source of excitement for gamers since they can replay old favorites and try out rare games without paying ridiculous eBay prices. While there’s money to be made by selling classics, the Wii’s Virtual Console can do more. The Game Boy Advance is nearing the end of its life cycle and it has a large catalog of developed games. Sure you’ll be able to buy used GBA games for a long time, but publishers aren’t making any extra money from that. Instead they could re-release their work on the Wii and cash in a second time. Imagine playing Fire Emblem, Metroid Fusion, Advance Wars, Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow and Astro Boy: Omega Factor on a TV instead of the tiny GBA screen. It could happen if there’s enough money to be made.
