Nintendo needs a better Virtual Console now that the Steam Deck is here

The Steam Deck has been announced and preorders are open, which means people are going to be able to buy the handheld device (assuming it’s not sold out until 2030), and play their entire Steam Library, that likely has games going back to the 90s. But there are going to be some unscrupulous users who aren’t just going to play Steam games – they’re going to use the platform’s open software to run all their favorite classic games from other platforms.

That means that people who have been wanting to play their favorite N64, GameCube and even NES and SNES games will have a way to do it on the go through an emulator, even if it’s probably not the way Nintendo wants people to do it.
