E3: Nintendo working on transfer of Wii data to Wii U

0

Nintendo is figuring out a way to allow Wii owners to transfer data from the Wii to the Wii U, said a hardware producer for the company during a developer Q&A session held today at E3. When asked about the possibility, the producer replied that Nintendo is "readying the system to be able to transfer saves and everything you've bought," according to Polygon. That would presumably include all save games, as well as downloaded WiiWare titles and Virtual Console games.

It's great news if Nintendo can pull it off, but we're not expecting the transition to be smooth. Polygon points out that Nintendo's current setup has no unified account; instead, purchases are tied to a console, and cannot be transferred from Wii to Wii. One would have to presume that moving content from a Wii to a Wii U would be a complicated, caveat-riddled process, and the Nintendo representative gave no details.
