So if you want a Wii game then you have to buy the game then you have to get a Wiimote and possibly a nunchuck as well so you could spend over $100 just to do that!
Good job Nintendo!!
You want to play Skyward Sword with the Gamepad? Good luck holding on to it when you're swinging your sword.
I think the overwhelming majority of Wii U owners are going to be prior Wii owners and thus have Wiimotes and accessories already. And, in the few cases that new Wii U owners don't have/didn't have a Wii, I think the overwhelming majority of them won't even care that the Wii U can play Wii games. If they cared about Wii that much, they would have purchased a Wii by this point.
The fact that the Wii U supports Wii game is more to help us, Wii owners, make the transition to the Wii U without having to keep 2 systems around. It's not necessarily there to get brand new Nintendo/Wii U owners invested in the Wii (which is essentially a legacy system now to Nintendo).
