Iwata also spoke about Revolution's Virtual Console download system and admitted that - following the news last week that Sega would use the system to offer classic Mega Drive titles to Revolution gamers - other publishers were also interested in VC.

The Nintendo president proposed that if developers created something simple and addictive - like Tetris - he would want to make the game available on Virtual Console to keep the cost to a minimum.
