A marketing company is circulating an online survey for Nintendo asking gamers for their opinions about the Revolution’s Virtual Console. What most stands out is that the survey lists three pricing models:
“Game purchase. You may be able to buy retro games and save them to the Nintendo Revolution’s memory, so they are always available.
Game rental. You may be able to rent games for a specified period.
Game subscription. By paying a monthly subscription fee, you will be able to add a certain number of games to your personal game library each month. You will be able to play all of the games in your library, including those that you added in previous months, as long as you continue your subscription. Note that one subscription option would allow for ‘unlimited’ access to the Virtual Console library. This means you could play any Virtual Console game as long as you maintained your subscription. “
The survey goes on to list a bunch of very popular first and third-party games from the NES, SNES, and N64 for no apparent reason other than to indicate that they will be available for download at launch.
