Re: Looking to buy a Wii for christmas - backwards compatibility?
Wii redesign is said (more or less confirmed) to loose backwards compatibility.
The Wii-U (the yet to be released) console does not have backwards compatibility (gamecube games)
Wii + backward compatibility = + gamecube controler & memcard sockets (behind covers)
Wii redisign = no more gamecube controler sockets.
