I really doubt Nintendo's next home console will be backwards compatible. A lot of games require the gamepad and it is too expensive if Nintendo wants the price advantage in the console race.

Given that Iwata has said the NX will be starting from zero, a fresh start I don't think the NX will be backwards-compatible

If the NX is really starting from scratch, it won't have backwards compatibility.

Besides, the gamepad controller itself limits that ability.

I hope it uses the gamepad still.

Yeah...I agree!! Not at all worried about the NX infact I am going to buy a second Wii U next month for my siblings. i see the speculation in the Media and its rather Click-Baitey. I dont see any reason why it wont be backwards compatible so all the games for the Wii U will be instantly playable.We are getting a Zelda Game for the Wii U in 2016.ALso I dont really mind delays for games.Nintendo is pretty much the only AAA publisher right now not releasing broken games at launch. I have been playing mario Kart 8, Smash, S Mario 3d world, Splatoon again and again.Its a great stress releaver atleast for me and all very very polished productions.Whenever the NX comes out I'll buy it if there isnt any (Xbone-esque) Fuck-wittery involved at launch which I suspect it wouldnt.No one ever really even gives it a second thought that used games wouldnt work on a nintendo console while we cant say that 100% for the other two companies. Also the Unity engine is now entirely compatible with the 3ds and Wii U so likely more indie games are going to be released as we have seen in their e3 coneference.
