I'm looking to buy a wii, and many of the games I want to play are gamecube games. In the bundle with New Super Mario Bros, it says that gamecube games are not compatable. I know the ones with wii sports and stuff work, but i'd like to know what others are. Is the bundle with Mario Kart backwards compatible, because thats the one I want. If so, are both the black and white ones? I read somewhere that all black wii's are not gamecube compatable.
Just tell me : is this wii bundle backwards compatible with gamecube games.http://www.amazon.com/Wii-Console-Mario-Kart-Bundle-Nintendo/dp/B004WLRQCI/ref=sr_1_1?s=videogames&ie=UTF8&qid=1319944645&sr=1-1
If it is, would its black counterpart also work?
and sorry if i posted this in the wrong section, im impatient and need to get back to other things
As of this posting, all Wii systems except for the systems included in the New Super Mario Bros. Wii + Super Mario Galaxy soundtrack CD bundle will support GameCube games. The newer systems without GameCube support sit horizontally and have the Wii logo printed horizontally to reflect that.
thanks a bunch i was just worried i'd buy a wii and then not be able to play some of my favorite games ever... i'd have to smash something.
According to this article- http://technologizer.com/2011/10/17/new-wii-bundle-same-price-new-game-no-gamecube/ -, the Wii bundled with Mario Kart Wii is backwards compatible with Gamecube games.
This is true. I have the Wii that was bundled with Mario Kart, and it will play gamecube games.
If it has the model number RVL-001 it should work.
