I'm sure you must be happy with all of those PS2 ports as well, I am not as I know the Wii deserves better. This is Nintendo almost saying that the ports we all groan about are ok.
The games are not polished remakes, just old games with new controls that 'improve' the experience. This time it hasn't worked with Mario Tennis, although Pikmin and Metroid do have superior controls (which they won't take advantage of because they are ultimately Gamecube games).
Tell me, was NPC Metroid Prime worth a few of the higher up members of Retro Studios leaving or delaying their next project? I don't think so.
The Wii already has perfect backwards compatibility, which makes this seem greedy.
Coupled with the fact that nothing else is going to be officially released but these NPC things by Nintendo, and you have what I deem to be a waste of time.

Take Pikmin for example they are rerelasing 1&2, from what i've heard they have been recieved well on the new system and therefore Nintendo are more likely to think hmm lets make a 3rd then. If they haven't already got one on the go and are rereleasing the others to make sure the 3rd is a success.
Pikmin is already a successful franchise, and that was on the Gamecube which didn't get the support it deserved. Miyamoto has already said that a new Pikmin is on the way.
Tell me then, why would Nintendo need to test the waters on their own bloody system? Nintendo sells, we all know that.
Metroid Prime 3 is already on the Wii, why not advertise that instead. Does it not deserve it more?

That was Capcoms doing, and those ports bombed hard. The NPC range will succeed though, because everything has a chance on the Wii.
Terrible bad nintendo for resurrecting great games no one played. and not just porting them but acctually making them relevent to your new machine.
Now you get it.
