    What should I look forward too and or do first. I still have my original wii with hbc and everything working with gc and wii backup loaders. Wondering if I could do the same with the wii u, not so much with the wii u games cause I could just buy the 3 good game on it but for the wii and gc things

    As long as you have a entry point, such as smash lego batman twilight princess, you should be good for vwii. Also, the wii u doesn't have a native gamecube port sooo...

    Also, things aren't as cool as with wii hacking though.

    Ah well I guess I'll use it for smash 4 and mario maker. Seems like this system still has a long way to go before besting it's predecessor in hackability.... or at least for now.

    The Wii U has a virtual Wii inside it meaning you can run Wii and Gamecube backups almost the same way you would on a regular Wii. 99% of the Homebrew you'd use through the Homebrew Channel works on the vWii so there's no issue there either. Honestly it's just as good as the old Wii end-user for hacking (especially since it outputs natively over HDMI) wise it's just some things take slightly longer to setup. Also with the Smash 4 GC adapter you can use GC Controllers with any GC game through Nintendont.

    Wait seriously it all works on this vwii thing awesome cause I was lacking a sensor bar for my wii so if the wii u didn't do it I'd have to buy a new one and carry both systems

    Wii U should have come with a new sensor bar for the wii side of things.

    The sensor bar is just infrared lights by the way. You can use two candles if you don't have one.
