Wii compatible with WaveBirds?

According to Nintendo US PRs.

With pre-orders for Nintendo Wii now mostly live, some of you might be considering chucking away your old GameCube stuff - well, don't.

Because a report citing Nintendo's US PR firm Golin Harris claim that WaveBirds and GameCube controllers can be used with all Cube games on the Wii, and even select Wii disc games.

The WaveBirds still need to use their receiver plug-ins, which apparently slot into the top of the console.

The report, which comes from Nintendojo, also claims that Nintendo has yet to detail compatibility between Virtual Console titles and Cube controllers, but should release more details closer to launch.
