    I have fully moded wii that play gc and wii games, and i can install wads and everything that moded wii does. But mainly i can play downloaded wii and gc games from usb and gc from sd.

    Now my question is...since i have no thtat much money for wii and wiiu i want to sell wii and replace it with wiiu, but only if wiiu can play evetything my wii can!

    So should i buy wiiu and sell my wii and will i get full moded wii experience on wiiu?
    And can i play copies (downloaded) of wii games from usb also?? Idk how much wii hacking has gone till now, and also, are there emulators for wiiu and homebrew?

    Thanks!

    So what do you think, and if yhe answer is yes, to sell my wii amd collect money for wiiu, which one should i buy, black, white, what firmware version, and how much money realisticly should i give for wiiU?

    Also, i was thinking of using nintendont for gc games on wiiu, but can i use gc on wiiu without it?

    P.s. im not ready to give up from my wii, unless wiiu can do the same and/or more...

    Yes, wii U will do all that a hacked wii offers and is better because it plays wii U roms too.

    You just have to be careful when setting up the wii side of the hack, it requires a different set of files compared to the normal wii hack. Apart from that the only con is that you will need to buy an adaptor if you wish to use gamecube controllers as the wiiu doesnt have them in the top like the wii. Wait for others to reply but for me ive not switched my wii on since having the wii u.

    The thing you can't do with a Wii U and that you can do with a Wii is play Wii games with a GC Pad. GC games with a GC Pad work though.

    Every system version : the lastest is recommended.
    The Wii u literally have a Wii inside it so no cons : same compatibility as Wii in vwii

    I'd say don't, the wii u really isn't the best upgrade and you'd probably be better off saving for something like a switch.

    There are a ton of threads about this that would explain better than I could, but I'll still try.
    Basically, there are no GC ports on the Wii U. So of course, the vWii side doesn't support GC Pads (and you can't play Wii games with a GC Pad).
    BUT specific homebrew can perfectly "hardcode" GC Adapter support, and that's what Nintendont does. So you can play GC games with GC Pads.

    Wasn't the vWii hacks fixed in some of the latest Wii U versions? I have a Wii U and the only reason I don't use it as a vWii hacked, is because it's 5.5.1 and I thought that the hacks were fixed lol. So it's not the case?

    Switch is far of my reach both in price and hacking...and its still young. I want to buy used wiiu.

    No not the wiiu, but wii inside wiiu, because i know ssbb can be played with gc pad...and thats a wii game.

    Latest version of Wii U system update (5.5.1) is fully hackable, for both Wii U and vWii. It is the recommended system version if you want to hack the console. As for the second question, he probably meant that Wii U is a dead console, as far as new releases are concerned. Don't expect any major releases to come out now. Maybe a couple of eShop releases here and there. If you want a console with a bright future, the Wii U is not it.

    You shouldn't have any problems to do that with a hacked Wii U. Remember that you will need two hard disks, one for Wii U games, and another for Wii/Gamecube, which I believe you already own.
