    I don't think they made them backwards compatibile because theres a lack of titles.

    Wii Sports, Red Steel (27%), Zelda : Twilight Princess (Forest Temple), Resident Evil 4 : Wii Edition (3-1), Trauma Center : Second Opinion (Ch2 1), Super Paper Mario (Ch 3-1), Mario Strikers Charged Football, MoH Heroes 2

    All of the next gen consoles allow for backwards compatability so I'm not suprised the Wii took the same route.

    actually nintendo did it first with gameboy; the game boy color had backwards compatability with the original gameboy; the gba had backwards compatability with game boy color games; ect

    and yeah, nintendo just basically wanted to keep the trend going cause it sells more older generation games and cause finally this generation they can do it cause they have 2 generations of cds now

    Ditto.
    I'd be bored out of my mind right now with the Wii if it didn't have backwards compatibility.

    i think its kind of a good thing because some games come out for the gamecube and the wii then you can get the gamecube version which is like 20
    and wii games are like 50 and its better because then peaple do not have to pay for the gamecube

Just think of all the extra hardware they probably had lying around after last gen. Anyway, just a thought. The complete backwards compatibility is the best thing Nintendo could have done for us in my opinion, and the VC just beats all!
    Yeah, it's great to see that Nintendo has put so much backwards compatibility into the Wii. The XBOX 360 doesn't have full backwards compatibility either. It's only compatible with a select number of games that have been included in BC updates. I just hope Nintendo continues this in the next generation of their consoles and doesn't leave people that have spent loads of $$$ on Virtual Console games in the dust.

    Well, think of it. You see a Gamecube for sale for about 80 bucks, then you see a Wii for 250 bucks and it comes with a game, and plays gamecube games..You figure its a better deal so it wins you over. Aside from that, it is a standard as everyone else is saying lol

    The Atari 5200 had an adapter to play original Atari 2600 games. The Atari 7800 could play them with no adapter, but could not play the Atari 5200 games.

    Another fun tidbit: the ColecoVision - a competing console - had an adapter to play Atari 2600 games! Can you imagine if Sony or Microsoft released an add-on to their symptoms allowing you to play each other's games?

    I would be very bummed if I couldnt play all my gamecube games anymore because the wii didnt support. For me its the only way to go with a new console ( especially nintendo consoles ) Even the first new gameboy supported it. Was very happy with that as well
    Tip of the day:
    A big mistake a lot of you make is that wiiware games will be free.

    Wiiware is just the same like the virtual console. Its different in that it offers new games instead of old console games.

    I can think of some easy games ( Like tetris and some other in that direction ) that can be free but the majority will cost money.
