    Sorry guys if this is in the wrong area. I am new to these forums and only got my Wii U last week. Though I have stored in its box my old soft-modded Wii I want to do what I can with the Wii U.

    Instead of reading through stupid amounts of pages etc, can people please link me answers or answer here. Thank you.

    1. vWii is their an easy way to Softmod it to run homebrew and therefore play all my games I have on an external HDD?

    2. Wiiware, Virtual Console games, etc, can they be purchased on the Wii U eStore soon? Or only ever going to be on the vWii Store.

    3. Trine 2, why is it not in the Wii U eStore? I see it on the TV with other games listed there and there is a Miiverse community.

    1. Yes, you can do pretty much everything the Wii could (though no boot mii) --- though, anything (C)IOS based must use vWii specific ones. Personally, I'd wait out any major modding until there is at least a good way to restore vWii in case anything goes wrong.

    2. I believe that's the plan but there hasn't been time frame set.

    3. Australia, right? I think everyone but you guys have it available.
