Wii U: Reggie would 'love to see Gamecube games on Virtual Console'

Wii U is by far Nintendo's most web-friendly console to date, bringing together Miiverse and a already-establish roster of Virtual Console content. But Nintendo of America head Reggie Fils-Aime would personally love to see Gamecube titles added to the store.

Nintendo Life reports that earlier this month company exec Amber Mcollom said, "GameCube discs will not be compatible with Wii U, but a number of the games that were playable on GameCube can be downloaded from WiiWare."

But then nothing further was said on the matter, until now.

Nintendo Life added that Reggie Fils-Aime was cornered by Kotaku on the same subject recently, and he apparently said with a smile and a wink, "That is a great question. And personally I would love for that to happen, but we have nothing to announce right now."

So it seems that Nintendo is keen on bringing its Gamecube slate to Wii U's online store, but they appear to be coy about it.

Let's go nuts here. What Gamecube games would you like to see on the Wii U's digital store front, and what sort of prices would you be willing to pay for the pleasure?
