You have to rebuy all of them since Nintendo locks all purchases to the initial Wii console the games were purchased on. it's a joke. as much as i want to buy Virtual Console and Wiiware games to get my hands on the old classics i still can't bring myself to do it since they wont let me do what i want with them, and that's transfer them in the event my Wii breaks down or a newer model becomes availible. unless your Wii is stolen and have proof or destroyed (via a house fire for ex.) they won't do anything for you and you'll have to shell out more cash for the same things you bought in the first place even though they're still tied to your account. hope this helps.

well you could call up nintendo customer support, and i think the'll transfer your games from 1 system to another, thats what i did when my first wii broke.

That's the exception unfortunately. You need a broken Wii. I tried contacting them and had no luck as my Wii was still in perfect working condition.
