Wii was BC with Gamecube (forgot about that) but older games (NES, SNES, N64) had to be downloaded on the Virtual Console for a fee. I'm pretty sure Sega's were never BC but could be wrong.
My point is though that after a while BC becomes less of an issue. I've kept a number of games from the original Xbox which are BC. Originally it was a pain not to be able to play them but it must now be five years since I looked at any of them.
BC would be nice I admit, but not having it isn't a deal-breaker for me.
