Nintendo Wii VC Rom Games.

Virtual Console (VC) is a classic video game download service for Nintendo Wii gaming console. Virtual Console was described by Ninten CEO Satoru Iwata as "the video game version of Apple's iTunes Store", the service features titles from past Nintendo consoles (NES roms, SNES roms and N64 roms) and formerly competing systems, the Mega Drive a.k.a SEGA Genesis rom games and TurboGrafx-16. Nintendo has also mentioned MSX roms compatiblity but has yet to announce any games from it. Gamasutra also announced that Commodore 64 titles will be released.

Built-in Emulators:

NES - Nintendo Entertainment Sytem 8-bit
SNES - Super Nintendo Entertainment Sytem
N64 - Nintendo Ultra 64
Sega Genesis - Sega 16bit game console
Turbo GraFX - TurboGrafx 16

For installing free Virtual Console and WiiWare games go to Wii
On PC backups of most Nintendo Wii software are stored as WAD files. They are 'containers' similar to setup.exe files on personal computers but specially designed to be executed on Wii.

Wii classic controller can be used to control games from the Virtual ConsoleGames downloaded from Virtual Console library will be stored on Wii's built-in 512MB flash memory and additional downloads may be stored or transfered to SD cards. If the 512MB internal memory is filled, VC games can be deleted to free up space for new roms. Purchased games even if deleted can be downloaded again later at no additional cost. Virtual Console game roms are locked to the Wii they were bought on, so a player cannot play their Virtual Console games on another Wii by simply swapping SD memory cards, but a Wii MODchip could fix this by emulating same Wii authentication codes on many consoles. In the event that a Wii is damaged and the Virtual Console games can no longer be played, Nintendo will provide support.

ModChips will be needed to play USA games on European Wii or Japanese roms on console bought in United States becouse Virtual Console service is region-locked - different versions of games will be provided to different regions, and game availability may vary from region to region.

Virtual Console games can be played using three different controllers. The Wiimote itself (turned on its side) can be used for NES, TurboGrafx-16, and some Sega Genesis games, and the separately sold Nintendo Classic Controller can be used for all Virtual Console games. The controllers from the Nintendo GameCube can be used for all Nintendo systems' games, despite the fact that Nintendo's site claims that it can only be used with some TurboGrafx-16 and Sega Genesis titles. All VC games have their buttons mapped to the respective buttons on the controllers. Users cannot use an Analog Stick instead of a D-Pad in Super Mario Bros, and they cannot use X and Y instead of A and B.

Best most efficient way of storing Wii isos on a Hard Drive without wasting too much space is using WBFS files. If you use Wii WBFS backup files (Note the difference - NOT File System but Backup Files) - you can store them in a \wbfs\ folder on any FAT32 or NTFS formatted USB HDD or Flash Drive. And that USB HDD can at the same time serve as your backup space for MP3s and documents, so you do not lose the ability to connect it to any PC / Mac or Linux computer!
