    I had an idea: if you installed a NAND with Wii Shop purchases (not WADs, I know those don't work) on it, would those purchases be retained on the Wii U eShop, therefore allowing you to have most of the VC for cheaper? Do Wii Shop purchases carry with NANDs?

    Wii Shop channel store your purchase data in server side, you can't modify that data.

    Also installing a Wii NAND to vWii will brick at least vWii, maybe the entire console (dunno which but I know it fully bricks something)
