I nearly fainted when I heard Wii games are gamepad possible. Had to read again... Bliss. Euphoria. Elation. Just 3 of the feelings Im having right now from this update.

Was Mariobro4. No, I'm not taking off my backpack...it's important.

Nintendo should patch the gamepad to work as a classic controller for my Wii VC games... that'd be nice. Love my Wii within a Wii U.

Would have been nice if the Gamepad was programmed to work as a classic controller pro!

This goes hand in hand with my previous comment. I would have thought that would have been an option.

Completely agree with that. If I can't use the GamePad as a Controller then why is it a big deal? Stand it up somewhere and play using a different controller? Why would I do that instead of using my one of my other TVs or even my Computer Monitor?

Nintendo will release a Micro-Console as a companion device to the NX and next Handheld Console.

Wait...how? How am I supposed to play a game designed with the pointer in mind on a touch pad?

Hmmm, I don't know what to think of this. Pointing and clicking is one thing, but what about more active motion controls? Could that little screen register that? And how would a game like Super Smash Bros. Brawl that uses more of traditional controls work?

Very interesting.

Hopefully next update...sigh I hope they really do it. Just for my VC titles I don`t want a Wii Gamepad Pro, though I might get a Wii U one..maybe they can patch those too.

Now you can play Wii games in a little tiny portable screen. Won't be a life changer, but. I can see it being useful in certain occasions.

Meowph, that's right!

Off TV play is available on Wii games, but you can't use the GamePad as an actual controller? It just shows the game?

Correct. Also people wanting Wii VC games to use the GamePad, that could destroy Nintendo's business of "upgrading" Wii VC titles.

Now that I do like. If I was stuck in Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, for example, then I could create a screenshot of the place where I'm stuck at with the GamePad and post it on NL in the Wii U internet browser to get help. Now I could have two places to get help; Miiverse and NL.
