    An actual wii over a wii u for wii related things. Don't mind having both a wii and wii u hooked up. Correct me if im wrong but i think if you mess up your vwii there is no way to recover it.

    Well they are 99% identical. Only thing you have is native gc support on the original wiis. Since nintendont does support the gc-controller-adapter thats not really a problem. The only thing you can do better with the original wii (correct me if im wrong i actually dont own a wii) is boot directly into a usb-loader and have gamecube controller support for wii games(only a few that actually support that smash, mariokart, ect.). So i guess the only real disadvantage you have on the wii u is the boot process start->wiiumenu->wiimenu->loader vs start->loader and the gc-controller with wii games. However if you have 2 Systems you have more cables ect.. so i guess thats pretty much all...

    EDIT: oh right you can have the tv screen on the gamepad on the wiiu, but that should be it

    If the gamepad buttons could register as a gc controller, I would love it. I do like having the mini screen, however I would go with wii. I'm nervous about putting channels or games directly on the main menu with vwii. Having 4 gc ports on the wii is also a major bonus. I'm also way more comfortable with messing around with settings, ios and stuff on wii without worrying about screwing something to the point of no return. That being said, it's nice to have vwii using an hdmi cable without needing to buy adapters. So I guess for homebrew stuff, emulators, I would pick wii, but if it's a wii game I might lean towards vwii.

    I prefer the wii. there are no forced updates and it has more manageable hacks. I have never even touched the vwii

    Definitely wii, just because of the fact that every homebrew there is works on the Wii, whereas a lot of cool stuff won't work on vWii.
