Wii Virtual Console list not reality

Monday 11 September, 2006
A recently leaked list of 26 titles to be supported by Wii's Virtual Console at launch - originating from a Nintendo fan-site's "trustworthy source" - has been dismissed by Nintendo after we contacted the games giant for comment.

"This is complete speculation - we know that everyone is as excited as we are about the pending launch of Wii and as a result there is a lot of speculation and rumour," we were told by a Nintendo spokesman. "Please be patient, as all will be revealed in due course."

Mercifully, we should only have to sit on our hands for another few days, with a major Wii event planned for this Thursday, 14 September. We'd be surprised if some (or perhaps even most) of the classics in the wish-list don't end up announced for Virtual Console, though - check out the nostalgia-fest below.
