In an interview on CVGNintendo reveals some interesting details about playing classic games on the new Wii console.
One of the most interesting aspects is that your old GameCube pads work on the Nintendo Wii to play classic games on the virtual console. That means you do not need to buy the new Wii Classic Controller. Also important is that GameCube games on the Wii cannot be played with the Classic Controller, only with the GameCube one.
Also an interesting tid-bit in this CVG article is that if you would import a US or Japanese Wii to Europe, it would not work with the European virtual console download server. Additionally you would void warranty, by importing. Good thing it is not necessary to import the Wii. It will be also available in Europe this year.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
