I think my Wii has trouble displaying colors at 480p component resolution, so I'm looking into upgrading to a Wii U while keeping all my original Wii games and accessories. 
 
Best way to obtain a complete Wii U system?


I got one off Mercari a year or two ago.

People... resellers that is... have caught on and are probably monitoring that page for changes with a script or something.  Or they are just paying close attention since that new 2ds xl showing up is right within the time frame of pretty much all the other deals.

Finally decided to grab Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition & Guacamelee! 2 Complete, both all time lows on the eShop.

Has Nintendo ever allowed digital purchases to be played on a different system? I don’t mean another 3DS family system but Wii to Wii U, Wii U to Switch, 3DS to Switch, etc?

At best they had some smaller 3DS/Wii U games where upon purchase they would issue you a code for the other version of it. They also sold Smash DLC this way.

They never really did the standard, less exploitable thing and just register the other version of those directly to your account.

Yeah, but it was more like you sacrificed your Wii to move over its library to Wii U. No redownloads on the old system and no transfers back.

EDIT: New Game Trial coming up. Fuser is rad, try it.

I enjoyed playing around with the music in fuser but i don't know how it rates as a game. It's basically digital dropmix which I loved. Still regret not buying the last 3 or 4 packs that came out so i'd have a complete set of cards.

What were the pros and cons besides the obvious the transfer being one way?

Sigh.., my Dropmix will no longer connect to any bluetooth device, even after a reset. Fun system. Might need to pick up Fuser to replace it.

you should be able to get a new dropmix board for cheap.

I wonder if it's even still possible to do the wii u transfer as you need the WIi to go on the Wii eShop (closed in 2019) to downloade the Wii-U transfer tool.   At least that's how I understand it works (been a long time since I did it).  Even if you can go on the eshop with the wii and download the tool... if your wii is modified that might be a really bad idea.  Then again, maybe there's another resource for getting the wii-u transfer tool for the wii in that case.

If your Wii and Wii U are both softmodded, I imagine there are easier ways to directly transfer data between the two. Haven’t looked into it personally, but that seems like the kind of thing that would have been relatively simple and desirable to implement after the Wii U had been cracked.

Yeah, you likely wouldn't be stopping at titles you've already purchased at that point.

I was even able to pull my wife's Animal Crossing save that's nearly 20 years old at this point from the GC memory card on a Wii to a virtual memory card in Nintendont on vWii on the Wii U, so there are definitely tools to do so.

Went ahead and bit the bullet on the 1TB card from Amazon for $132. 
 

Have a 400GB that has less than 10GB left. Toyed with the idea of jumping to 512GB but figured I’d be in the same spot in a year.

I'm jumping from 256 gig to 512 GB. Hopefully by the time I need the 1TB card they will be a lot cheaper.

My Wii was already soft modded when I did it but at the time I had a fix installed that still allowed me to legally access the Wii shop and make purchases/redownloads

Dang, Mario Golf looks to be as mediocre as Mario Tennis. Might wait for the inevitable $40 holiday sale.

I'm pretty happy with the 128gb card in my switch.  Most of my collection is physical though... so I'll likely never have to upgrade my 128gb card unless it dies.

I literally just read like 5 reviews this morning and all of them were raving about how good it was. Not sure where you're getting your info.

Not sure a 6 on IGN is raving … reviews seem mixed. Looks fun but it also falls into the perfect release window for a Black Friday discount.

I'll pass on this. Mario Tennis was a disappointment to me also. Looks like Mario Golf is at 74 Metacritic & dropping. Nintendo life gave it a 7 (notorious 1st party nut huggers). Which isn't bad imo, but far from raving reviews. Hell if it looks good to you just buy it. Screw reviews.
