Re: Why are the Wii's of today no longer backwards compatible with Gamecube games and no GC controller ports?

BC compatibility is mostly made to make the transition phase from the former user base to jump to the new hardware. Once that is done, they take it away. And besides, any Nintendo fanboy or GC user that wanted a Wii will already have it by now. New gamers won't care that much.


This and to save costs. Nintendo wants to help transition gamers to the next console and by having BC they make it easier to sell/trade the old console and still keep your old games.
