OK. Looks like the recent rumors circulating about the next Nintendo console — codenamed Revolution — will have all previous console releases available for free download is not true. Apparently, some old NES, SNES, and N64 games will be made available for purchase through an online service or some such thing.
Considering the retro-gaming mood I’ve been in recently, I came dangerously close to losing it when I heard the rumors. I mean, every game for every system? Yowza. Just think of all the Mega Man titles I never got to play! I didn’t have a Super Nintendo — who knows what goodness I missed!
Is it wrong that a large percentage of my childhood memories are 8-bit?
