Good stuff coming down the pipe. Though I wonder about the retail pricing and how flexible they're going to be. Will I go onto the e-shop next year and find Starfox 64 3d for 39.99 but find it at target, wal-mart, amazon, or gamestop for 29.99 or less? I can understand price in-elasticity on the mario games since they're evergreen titles that will sell for years but I don't see the same potential in stuff like star fox.
If they can't drop the price of older games that have reached the end of their traditional retail life, they're going to end up like xbox live games on demand and not steam.
Oh sh--, Ninja Gaiden! Maybe I'll make an earnest attempt at beating this game.
