    Yes, the Wii will be backwards compatible - WHEN it launches this fall. Right now the rumors are for an October or November release. It will support Game Cube games, and apparently/hopefully it will have a large archive of Nintendo games from even older systems (N64, SNES, NES) available through a special service as well. Don't plan on selling your GC before the Wii releases, but at that point it's well worth it to upgrade.
