Discussion: The Nintendo Wii U and Backwards Capability

Backwards capability is an amazing thing, that is surprisingly rare in the modern gaming landscape. Basically, backwards capability means that new systems can play games from previous systems. Nintendo has been pretty good about this recently with the Wii being able to run Gamecube games. Although this is only two systems, it is much appreciated by the gaming community, as well as companies like GameStop that stay in business through the used game trade. The Wii U will most likely be able to play Wii games, but it may be a bit of a stretch to expect the Wii U to play GameCube games as well. This might not be a huge problem, as many of these games may be available for download online. What do you think? -Ryan Baxter
