I am sorry if posting external links is not allowed, but here is some interesting news: http://gimmegimmegam...etween-systems/ . it looks like the transfer method is similar to the DSi and 3DS transfer where both old and new consoles are required. Now because the Wii was hacked quite badly - it would be possible to accept that any FREELY obtained VC channels could be transferred over to the Wii U. And from here, it may even be possible for the clever clever folk who are involved in "the scene" to figure out a way to allow the Wii U to play backups of Wii games or homebrew. No doubt the Wii U security will be beefed up significantly like the 3DS, but if they use this transfer method, there will obviously be opportunities from the get go. Thanks.
