I am giving my ten year old a WII for his birthday today. I read a snipped on wikipedia about it being backwards compatible with Nintendo DS. My son is convinced it isn't -- if it is how do we make it work? I read about a game cube cable -- is that what's needed? How can we make his DS games work on the Wii? Or can we? is it just saying that one can use the DS console with Wii games? I'm confused.
