New black Wii SMB holiday bundle: No Gamecube support

Nintendo says that starting October 23, a new Wii console bundle will be available. It will contain New Super Mario Bros. Wii game, a special Super Mario Galaxy soundtrack CD, a black Wii Remote Plus controller and Nunchuk controller. The new bundle will be priced at $149.99.

This new US model seems to be related to that European one that doesn't have backwards support for GameCube games. Nintendo says:

The newly configured black Wii console sits horizontally rather than vertically and is designed exclusively for Wii game play and entertainment experiences (Nintendo GameCube™ software and accessories are not supported).

Is this even an issue anymore?
