comment Is there a functional difference between black Family Edition and white classic Wii console?
So, I can safely conclude that the lack of GameCube support is not a real limitation on the use of the new system.

Thanks. Will those games work with the Wiimote?

comment Charging Nintendo DSi XL from USB/5V
@Joe Wreschnig - you can actually find a fine step-down converter for about $6 in dealextreme.com. My problem was that I did not have the time to wait for the 3-4 weeks shipping. Additionally, the purpose of the question was actually to make sure that the 5V charging is not harmful for the device (expecting 4.3V)

Yes, that is what I used eventually. I purchased a USB charging cable from Amazon and used it with the car cigarette lighter charger and with my laptop USB output with no problems.

thanks for your answer. I just wonder what is it with the "Nintendo DSi" cards? Just a sales accelerator thing?

@Blake - thanks for the link. I just found out that the connector itself is not a standard USB mini connector. Thus a proprietary compatible cable is required. This means that I need to buy one of the cables sold by Amazon and trust it to be OK to charge by 5V.

@Rawling - Yes, I did. It is not a "travel charger", and I found many complaints about that online.
