Retro Gamer Magazine Reports that GameCube Games are Coming to Wii U Virtual Console
Nintendo hasn’t yet made an official comment about whether GameCube games will be available for download to Wii U’s Virtual Console now that backward compatibility with the discs has been removed, but UK gaming magazine Retro Gamer is reporting that they will be coming to the service. While of course we haven’t seen anything to this effect come out of Nintendo’s deep, dark press corridors, they’re not reporting this in the manner of a guess – they’re reporting it as a matter-of-fact.
“Backwards compatibility with Wii will be included but you’ll no longer be able to play GameCube titles. They’ll be on the Virtual Console store instead.”
We’re a little skeptical, however. Read on to find out why.

Nintendo: Miiverse is Wii U’s Killer App
The term “killer app” applies to an application — a game or a feature — that is likely to have a big impact on the sales and popularity of a video game console. And according to Nintendo’s Reggie Fils-Aime, Wii U’s killer app is Miiverse, the social network that’s built into the Wii U.
Speaking to All Things D, Reggie said that Nintendo have big ambitions for Miiverse, adding:
“As the network grows and the installed base grows, it [Miiverse] will prove to be a true killer application for the system, and I say this loving what we have done with Nintendo TVii and loving all the games. Until you try it and experience it, you may not totally understand it”

Amazon is still not selling the Wii U, but there’s hope
Mega-online-retailer Amazon isn’t selling Wii U consoles directly yet, as a result of a bitter feud between them and Nintendo. While some third party dealers are selling Wii U’s through Amazon, the company isn’t selling any firsthand. In fact, Amazon isn’t selling any Nintendo consoles directly as of now. But luckily, it looks like there light at the end of the tunnel.
According to rumors, it all started with the original 3DS. Amazon had a huge lot of unsold 3DS consoles and wanted to sell them at a discount. Nintendo said no, and forced the retailer to sell at the original (and very steep) price point.
