Just bought the Starter pack for the Wii-U - I have a Wii-U and an old Wii still. does anyone know if the Wii-U Infinity base /figures would work with the old Wii (if I can get the Wii CD), given the connector is USB?.

Got an answer: 3ds and 360 are exclusive to their consoles. PS3, Wii and Wii-U share the same bases and should be interchangeable. will plug the Wii-U one I have into my old Wii and see how it goes.

how did it go? could you play on the old Wii? I am curious too... we have a Wii and a PS3 and this would be great news if it works for both!

Yes - the base I got with the Wii-U Infinity Starter pack works fine with the old wii - obviosuly had to source a game disk for the original Wii.

What does "source a game disk" mean?

What about the other way? What if you buy this for the Wii then upgrade to Wii U later? Supposedly Wii U will play Wii games. Has anyone bought then upgraded. I understand the two-player in play set mode is unavailable in Wii. Is this coded to the Wii disk this way, or does the Wii U platform permit this functionality? What about online functionality? Thanks in advance.
