    I take it they don't mean first-party support...

    The only third party that will continue to support it will probably be EA with there yearly spam

    @Yepi69 Well we did get that WiiShop Channel update (guessing it's a Wii firmware update) for the data transfer from Wii>WiiU
    So what I'm saying is that yeah I THINK WiiU will support wii game online play...if not well....we're **** out of luck.

    The 3DS supports Wi-fi for DS games, so I think it's at least possible. Whether or not online backwards compatibility will be supported however, is yet to be revealed...

    Any ideas if the Wii U will upscale Wii games to (near) 1080p?

    Believe I heard somewhere that the Wii U will upscale Wii games in a way, but not actually to a higher resolution or somethin'.
