    New Wii design- No more GC Compability



    Nintendo has cut backwards compatibility from the just-announced Wii redesign.

    The new-look Wii redesign will no longer support GameCube games or hardware, the company has confirmed.

    This means gamers will be unable to use GameCube pads when playing Wii games such as Mario Kart Wii or Smash Bros. Brawl.

    Has Nintendo slimmed the Wii simply by chopping off its GameCube controller and memory card slots, currently hidden away under the console's top flap?

    Gamers who want the new Wii and still wish to avoid motion controls must upgrade to the Wii's equivalent pad, the Classic Controller.

    A Donkey Konga bongos equivalent has yet to be confirmed.

    Maybe a new way to stop the hard/soft modding?

    It would only be effective to block recovery mode, but can still be activated via Priiloader (if the Wii boots that far).

    Will the regular Wiis still be produced?

    EDIT: And yes, I'm back in the Wii homebrew scene, hold the applause[/sarcasm].

    I don't think they will be able to stop softmodding. They have quite some exploits to fix.

    I was talking to a guy that works for nintendo. He was telling me that the Wii U, that comes out next year, won't have Gamecube support either. But you will be able to buy Gamecube titles from the Shop channel.

    I don't know. Let's face it, the wii is relatively old and I don't think they will have much benefit in bringing out a new system menu. Then again, it has been some time since 4.3. Who knows?
