This lot have painstakingly worked out how much you save if you buy all Virtual Console games through your Wii as opposed to buying the real things second hand on eBay. Everyone needs a hobby. Turns out if you buy everything from VC - all 196 games in the US - it'll cost you $1,325, as opposed to the eBay price of $2,516.59: a saving of almost $1,200.
Which, as the article notes, is great, but you can't resell VC games. And you can't hold them in your hands. But to be honest, you've just saved $1,200, so who cares?
