I know that it will play Wii games but will it play the tiny Gamecube discs?

Is it even going to have Gamecube controller support? probably not. Guess its the Classic Controller even thought i've never actually bought one of those...

Doesn't the classic controller plug into the same port as the GC controller? 
 
It's kind of wierd though that they are restricting it to one of the new controllers per system.

It plugs into the Wii Remote so Classic Controllers will be supported.

Nah and they need to let go of the Gamecube. It's one thing to allow the previous systems games, but to allow 2, nah. They have way too much money they could make by moving Gamecube games onto the Virtual Console.

Closing since the question has been answered...do we really need 20 more people replying with empty quotes or giving the exact same answer?
