That's what I would like to know, why did Nintendo choose include the gamecube set-up with their Wii console? Was it to make it fully compatible with the older games (like Nes, Snes etc.) or simply a good strategy to get people buying more gamecube stuff? We all know how the gamecube went over in the last gen race, it was considered a flop by many. Personally I think they did it to be fully compatible, but what do you think, you can use my thoughts or include your own (which would be very cool).
