21skywakeThu 14th Nov 2013 Well they can read from SD cards on the Wii U and they can access data from the Wii. We know the first is true because the Animal Crossing Plaza channel thing allows you to move pictures from Animal Crossing New Leaf to the Wii U via SD Card. We know the second is true because the Wii U eShop knows what your purchases are, you can copy over your Miis and Wii Fit U allows you to copy over your Wii save data. However there's a difference between reading it and actually running it outside of the compatibility mode. I really don't see them putting that much of an effort into something that in reality is a niche feature. It plays Wii games, it didn't need to do anymore. The fact that they have done more is a welcome surprise as it is. As for pushing the Wii U VC to the point that it has the Wii VC library now, I don't see how that would be a problem. The vast majority of the content everyone wants doesn't have any real licencing restrictions. It's like going to a store full of music, a consistent slow stream of new albums means nothing if there isn't a library of content already there. You go in and browse for stuff you like. If there's nothing you like then you'll walk out and probably never bother with it again. Some good Aussie musics: King Gizzard, Pond, The Avalanches "Don't stir the pot" is a nice way of saying "they're too dumb to reason with"
