Confirmed? No. That was another dream from Iwata before the colossal failure it became the new console. Also, the patents have gladly show us there's no disc drive, so no bc. Thank god!


The architecture absorbtion isn't confirmed, lmao? Okay. That quote came after it was clear to Nintendo that the Wii U failed. And genius, you don't need a disc drive for BC anymore! :O Thank God!

OMG! How in the world is Ninty going to pull of BC without a disc drive? Please tell me you don't actually believe Ninty would give out digital copies of WiiU games do you?

Aren't they currently doing that with Wii games on Wii U?

They aren't going to give digital copies of anything. You keep your digital Wii U purchases. You're shit out of luck with your physical games, like with the XBO and PS4.

They carge $$$ for that. And that's through Virtual Console.

Which would be majority of the Wiiu user base and XBO/PS4 aren't backward compatible so they aren't comparable here.

Yep, but I'm also open to see NX versions (ports upresed) for games like Super Mario Maker and SSB Wii U.

The majority of the Wii U userbase has digital games. Maybe not all of their games, but almost everyone has games that will transfer over. The XBO/PS4 example was just referring to physical BC, which is 100% comparable.

The "major games" are physically bought by the majority. We are talking about a console with 32 GB of internal memory.
