    I guess I read it somewhere but I don't remember where
    It would seem an unnecessary cost to integrate a USB2 controller and a USB1 controller chip into the Wii. A single controller IC could control both ports; I somehow doubt this (what you say), but who knows...

    that's what I thought, maybe I read some misinformation...
    Is there any other idea that you've come across to explain why only one port works for games?
    See the Thanks button over there?

    Being it wasn't DESIGNED to do what we use it for, perhaps not all the I/O lines are ran on the second port and are on the first? Just an educated guess...
