Yeah, I don't think that's even remotely fair. "Hey, don't buy a 40 bucks Wii, but instead buy a 160 bucks Wii U and 30 bucks Gamecube." For that amount of money you can buy a Wii and 10 good games.
Edit: Here "bucks" = GBP.

Yeah but with the Wii U/Gamecube purchase you would also have access to the Wii U library for years to come.

yeah the Wii gets no support anymore so getting a WiiU is a better idea thinking ahead(plus the GameCube needs no extra support it's awesome the way it is)

Plus I am surprised that no one has said this if you have an Gamecube you can also get a Gameboy Advance Player for it and then have access to Gameboy Advance games too. B-)

Just a small correction.

And when in an year or so the Wii U costs around or under 100, then you can buy it and have at least have 10 good games to play on it. All you'd lose is the money you've paid for the Wii but then again the Wii U will cost you less.

The Wii also has a better virtual console library at the moment but most of those games will make it (sooner or later) to the Wii U. Also keep in mind if you do get a Wii to play Gamecube games alot of the better ones were ported to the Wii with Wii controls.

The wii u HAS the wii menu on it, and you can buy all of them from it.

You've met with a terrible fate, haven't you?

There is no way it's gonna cost $100 in a year, or a few years for that matter. It would take 6 at the minimum (emphasis on minimum). It took 8 years for the Xbox 360 (the red the red red ring of death version I believe too) refurbished to hit $100. A new 360 or PS3 runs you $180-200 still. A new still costs $130 even, and that cheap and meant to be cheap from the start.

Getting an NTSC Wii (And using the power brick from a UK one). Is far cheaper and more readily available at a reasonable price than importing an NTSC Wii U) at least to the UK. And all the VC is 60hz, At some point soon I will get a Wii U but getting a UK one has significantly less hassle if something goes wrong with it. I have a PAL Gamecube / NTSC Wii (With Gamecube ports) and a PAL Wii (Without Gamecube ports). Quite happy with old stuff on a CRT. (Much happier than I think I will be with the Wii U on a 30ms input lag plasma. I would really like a solution for that first that doesn't involve putting up with 3 frames (46ms or whatever) of input lag).

Well Wii U is backwards compatible with the Wii, unless you want Gamecube games I don't know why anyone would get a Wii when the Wii U already exists. Maybe even somewhere down the line we might get GC games for Wii U virtual console.

I would suggest the Wii with Gamecube support simply because you can play the Gamecube games in progressive scan. The older Gamecubes had a digital port, but currently the component cables for it go for about 200.00-250.00 dollars. Even though the output is better then the wii's component video its not worth that price IMO.
