Wish they'd release some of their 2nd and 3rd tier first party VC games. Don't we all own all of these games by now, or at least the ones we want? Come on Nintendo. You have a huge library of first party titles, get them on the systems!

for 3rd party games, is out of 3rd party developers to release those games...maybe Ninty can be more proactive...but I don't think they will offer some money or more share coming from the purchases.
