Commodore 64 coming to Virtual Console

In one of the most surprising announcements over the past few days, Commodore Gaming has confirmed to us that old Commodore 64 games are on their way to the Wii.

Later on this year, Wii owners will be able to pay 500 Wii points for the privilege of playing games that cost around £1.99 ($4)when they first hit the shelves back in the days where games came on cassettes. So you'll almost be paying double for the privilege.

The first games arriving through the service will be International Karate and Uridum, (see each here and here on YouTube respectively). Why not IK Plus?

For the record, we'd be willing to part with 500 Wii points for the following: Creatures, Creatures 2, Mayhem in Monsterland and Exile, and our US brothers would like to add Archon, Archon II, Elite, and Racing Destruction Set.
