According to the specifications found on Nintendo's E3 website, the drive doesn't accept GameCube's small 8cm discs, only the new high-density discs for Wii U and the normal 12cm Wii discs - so no, it won't be compatible. This also fits with the likely strategy they use for backwards compatibility; they shut all the new stuff off so the console behaves just ...
It uses IR. The top of the GamePad has an IR transceiver to control the TV (I assume it also reads where you're pointing at using the sensor bar, the same way the Wii Remotes work). In this picture, you can see the black transparent cover of the IR port on the top of the GamePad Also, from the video on this page: "[...] [the IR transceiver] can be ...
No. Unfortunately, the Wii U screen is a little more complicated than simply streaming from the main unit, and thus you will only have the ability to play from it on games where the developer has taken the time to implement that. Since Wii games were (understandably) developed before the Wii U came out, none of them have the code necessary to transfer to ...
You require the physical Wii and an SD card to move everything over. Note that this is a "move", not a "copy"; everything that gets put on the Wii U will be deleted from the Wii. Important! You will need to have both the Wii U and Wii on hand to perform a system transfer. [...] 3. If I transfer my games from Wii to Wii U, can I keep the games ...
Yes, regular Wiimotes are supported by the Wii-U. This page on Nintendo's website says: Controllers The Wii U console is capable of supporting two Wii U GamePad controllers, up to four Wii Remote (or Wii Remote Plus) controllers or Wii U Pro Controllers, and Wii accessories such as the Nunchuk, Classic Controller and Wii Balance Board.
The internal flash memory is only used for storage of things like saves and assuming digital downloads and the like. Apparently the only way to extend the memory of the Wii U is to use a USB storage device. As to the second part of your question, unless a Nintendo Executive has made a public statement somewhere we can only guess as to why they made these ...
The Wii U is completely HDCP-free when playing games, accessing the menu and even when playing Wii/ Wii Virtual Console software. I confirmed this using my Elgato Game Capture HD, which doesn't have an HDCP stripper. This means any HDMI capture card can capture Wii U video even if it can't strip/crack HDCP protection (no promises about Netflix/non game ...
The WiiU version is the direct port of the other Assassin Creed versions so the Piggyback guide would be the same. Here are a few sources confirming this: http://wiiudaily.com/2012/10/assassins-creed-3-on-wii-u-is-the-same-as-other-versions/ http://www.digitaltrends.com/gaming/assassins-creed-iii-for-the-wii-u-same-taste-less-filling/ ...
Nintendo made official statements about this last year in interviews that no, Wii U will not upscale Wii games. Those interviews date back to the console's original reveal, but as far as I know, Nintendo's stance on that issue hasn't changed since.
From what information has been released so far, the system does not accept the 8cm GameCube discs, nor does it have ports for the controllers/memory cards. However, this doesn't rule out alternate means of playing GameCube games on the WiiU, such as with direct downloads (a la Wii's Virtual Console).
This article from Eurogamer seems to suggest that it doesn't. Nintendo's Wii U console will not support original models of the Wii controller without a MotionPlus attachment, according to comments made by Shigeru Miyamoto.
From what I could find on region locking for Wii games , Australia and Europe share the same region (PAL), so one would surmise that Nintendo would use the exact same region methodology for the Wii U, as it has not changed since the Nintendo 64. Reference: Wikipedia: Regional lockout
It does work, I'm not sure the exact timing of it. To be sure I just hold B the whole time the Wii U controller is showing the Wii U logo (you don't have to hold it earlier than this). There's probably some point in there where you can let go, but when doing that it boots directly into the Wii menu for me.
I had tried connecting manually, the Wii U connected to the router, but there's no connection to the internet, and there were errors 103-2001 to 103-2004. I had read a lot of posts about things that work for other people—some of them are: clearing all the saved connections and putting again a new connection manually; putting a +15, +30, in the IP (as long as ...
I would normally refer to the printed manual, which we do of course have access to in English, but it refers to the electronic manual for more information about USB devices, and this manual only seems to exist on the Wii U itself. I don't have a Wii U yet (partly because it isn't out here yet), but I would expect that this information is also repeated ...
