At their E3 press conference, Nintendo made it sound like they were going to
release their back catalog (presumably with emulators):

Future games are still cloudy, but Iwata was clear in saying that the
Revolution would definitely support all of Nintendo's past games. "We have
designed Revolution to be a virtual console, capable of downloading 20 years
of Nintendo content," as a slide showed the NES, SNES, and N64. "It is
accurate to say that Nintendo Revolution is capable of playing virtually
every Nintendo console game ever created. The idea of a console device
transporting us back to those days should make us all feel young again & at
least for a while."

If this is true, I'm hoping that it forces legit classic carts to get
even cheaper. Download all you like, Revolutionaries, I'm heading off
to eBay to pick up the real deal. :)

Only if Nintendo released a adapter for each type of cart, if it's
downloadable, then its (probably) going to be extreamly easy to make / play
rom images of the older games and they would have to emulate all the various
in cart support chips like the DSP, SFX(2), SA-1, C4, S-DD1, DSP-4, SPC7110
and any others I forgot.

But then again, I can't imagine what the Rev. will look like with a 128Mbit
Game Doctor plonked ontop of it! ^_^
