Gamestop gave me a print out of the Nintendo Press Conference. And it says the Wii U works with all old Wii Remotes and (almost) all Wii Games. That is exactly how it is worded.

I can also see why Gamestop is telling people that only the Deluxe Edition will have Backwards Compatibility. It does look like it's under the Deluxe Edition section but you can tell it's supposed to be it's own section.
This is the way the world ends.

Pretty sure Reggie said that at the conference too, it'll work with almost all Wii games. Chances are they'll never tell us which ones don't work, we'll have to find out ourselves.
All's fair in love and war, kid.

I can't think of any games that would absolutely not work off hand... the note is most likely just to cover themselves. (Like "kills 99.9% of germs!")

I know GC -> Wii had issues with addons not working --- most notably the Modem/Broadband adapters; I doubt this will be the case for Wii -> Wii U though. PSO wouldn't work at all because of the previous online bit and a date/time menu specific to the gamecube.

It would be deal breaking for many if Brawl didn't work on their Wii U --- so I doubt this as well.

Maybe the only games that won't work are the uDraw tablet games. That wouldn't be so bad.

Stop the presses! A game from 2008 won't work on a console from 2012! SORRY NINTENDO BUT U LOST A CUSTOMER!111

Wat? How is that a deal breaker in ANY way?
