Can I use the portal for Skylanders that came with my 360 on the Wii U?

Simple question but havent tried it yet. My son owns the xbox 360 version of the 1st Skylanders game and I just bought him the starter kit for Skylander Giants. Can I just use the portal from the 360 version for the Wii U? I believe they both hook up to the usb.

i was going to say no but then i thought it might cause there both usb,and it does its in right now and its lighting up and changes colors but i cant test the game cause i dont have the wii u version only 360,but the pod works so i would say yes since its all lighting up and stuff

I'm pretty sure the 360 one only works on the 360 one and is the only one that is not universal.

Wish I was joking.

The starter set has a new portal in it.

It has a portal + 3 figures. so you dont need to use 360 portal. Use the new one :)

All of the portals are cross compatible with all systems. The 360 portal is the only one that isn't wireless at all, it must be plugged in to USB, making it the best portal all around, as there is no chance of dead batteries. Every portal comes with a USB cable that you can use to plug it in to any other system and the PC. I can't speak personally for the iOS portal yet, I won't have that until Saturday. The entire point of Skylanders is cross compatibility, so yes, the portal will work on any system.

I picked up the Wii U version of the starter kit for giants so he could play it on the Wii U. Was hoping to save a few bucks and just get him the game for the Wii U and use the portal from his 360 version.

I think they have only released a starter kit for Wii U
