Next-gen downloads go head to head


How many games?
There are now over 90 games available. The Virtual Console has the most frequent releases, with one to four games arriving each week.

What kind of games?
You can download games for the NES, SNES, N64, Genesis, TurboGrafx-16 and, eventually, Neo Geo. At the moment there aren’t any original games like you’ll find on the other two services.

Any freebies?
No free games, but you can now watch preview movies of the games online, so you can at least take a look before you buy.
