    Wii Backwards Compatibility

    This thread I guess is just to say congratulations to Nintendo for making a fully backwards compatible seventh generation console. Unlike the XB360 (which has only 295 compatible titles, and many run with lower framerates and/or gameplay/sound glitches) and the PS3 (which has to provide constant firmware updates to tackle backwards compatibility issues on some of the PS2's biggest selling titles such as Pro Evolution Soccer 6 and Grand Turismo 4), Nintendo have managed the whole thing perfectly right from day one.

    I work at Blockbuster (yes - I'm living the dream!) and I've noticed a large increase in GameCube game sales since the Wii came out, which must be partly down to the flawless backwards compatibility of the Wii. With the Virtual Console taking off more and more, the Wii could be seen as eight consoles in one. The ability to also play NES, SNES, N64, Mega Drive, TurboGrafx-16, MSX, and Neo Geo games on one console is astounding...

    So well done Nintendo I guess is the main theme of this post

    Nintendo have always been good at this.

    See Nintendo Gameboy Advanced and Nintendo DS (although it can only play advanced game carts. and not the bigger ones... but it's still good.)

    My brother is well pissed off because he got Zelda: Twighlight Princess at Christmas for the GameCube as he'd given up hope of ever getting a Wii as they are golddust.

    And then last week one comes in where I work, and now he wishes he could put the GameCube version into the Wii and make use of the Wiimote. But no

    Just to go further off topic...

    It's not quite backwards compatibility but I loved the way you could plug in Sonic The Hedgehog 2 or 3 into the top of the Sonic & Knuckles cartridge
