Earthbound coming to Wii U Virtual Console! Straight from Iwata himself...

Finally the long wait is over! I really hope this kills the bootleg cart ring once and for all.
For those that don't know about bootleg Earthbound carts here is the short version of the story. Earthbound carts are fairly hard to come by, so a bunch of jerks made bootlegs and started selling them on eBay. Until literally last year no one had posted pictures of the inside of a legit Earthbound cart, so it was hard to tell a fake from the real deal. The bootlegs got harder to tell apart from the legit carts. My husband's bootleg cart played the game all the way through to the end, so they had figured out how to get around the anti-piracy measures that were in the game's code. We finally got a hold of a legit copy, but we still have a useless fake that we can't get rid of and cost us $60.
Now that it's going to be on the VC there should be way less of a demand other than from classic game collectors.
