Wii broke! Get a new one or wait for the U?!

So a few weeks ago my nintendo wii got kinda smashed so i sent it into my local video game shop to be repaired. They gave it back and it was working fine but it has finally conked out (the nerd hissy fit I threw when having troubles and kicked it in no way corolated to it breaking...) So now I am stuck without a format for my vast amount of wii and gamecube games...should i get a new one or sell off some of this stuff and start my wii u fund?

Just get another Wii, considering that the Wii plays GC and the WiiU plays Wii games, plus I'd wait until there's more to look forward to on the WiiU when it comes out, but that's just me

Well, it really just depends on how much money you have to play with, and rather you have other consoles or not.

Yeah I'd buy a new Wii for like 40 or however much they are wherever you live. I'm not getting a Wii U until I'm sure it's the final one. But then I'd be waiting like 10 years.

I went to my local gamestop to pick one up and the guy who worked there really didn't know if the newer wii's were GC compatible either. I thought all wii's were? Holding off on buying one till I find out more...Or until this threads consensus is that everything is "all good"

check the top of the wii, if it doesn't have the gamecube ports, it's not compatible. Still a bit disgusted to see they removed the compatibility.

I'd suggest just buying a gamecube, you can find them cheap used. Hell, I even see new ones at Zellers for 30 bucks still. Then wait for the WiiU
