I don't really get it.

Between people who still have an NES with their Mario games, an SNES with Super Mario All-Stars, the GBA's collection of re-releases and remakes, and a Wii with the Virtual Console releases that came out ages there really anybody out there without this collection in some form?

I was kind of hoping they would've been generous, put a few more megabytes of that disc to use, and at least included Super Mario World and possibly Yoshi's Island. At least then people would be getting the better version of something that came out years ago on a cartridge.
