    With all the news is going about redNand ect, is it possible to upgrade the vWii Graphics?

    I'd personally be more interested in being able to package a Wii game as if it were a virtual console game...

    Being able to boot directly to a Wii backup (stored on the Wii U usb drive mind you...) would be very nice...

    A single large hard drive vs two small hard drives would be nice...

    I wonder if @Asdolo has a Wii U...

    I myself would prefer a proper backup loader with usb. Then you can store Wii U, vwii, gamecube, and any other console vwii emulates on one usb drive

    Well, if Wii VC channel creation was figured out you could probably package all of those games as Wii U home menu channels...

    You could also store them all on the Wii U usb drive then as well... (just like any virtual console game)

    I would imagine that Nintendont would be capable of running as a vWii "disc" as well with slight modification...

    I think you mean not upscaling, but rather rendering vWii mode at high resolution?

    He might also be talking about patching the vWii game graphics with higher resolution texture packs like emulators for the Wii can do...

    Forcing the vWii into a higher resolution mode would also be quite nice though...

    Not under a rock.
    @Marionumber1 said it's possible, but you would need to rewrite GX (the Graphics module for Wii), or, IIRC, patch every single game to work with GX2 (the Graphics module for Wii U).
