stripping a key feature that make a modern day gaming console such as online. and THEN releasing it?

Good luck with that Nintendo.

So it's basically like a Gamecube that can play some Wii games.

Jeez, I'll stick to my Wii and Wii U.

I don't blame Nintendo for putting this out, they really want to hit that 100 million mark and this is a formula that has worked for them in the past.

I think Sony released a PSP that lacked online ability right before the Vita launched. So its a decent enough idea and the $99 price point will appeal to a lot of people. Honestly, the Wii doesn't have patches, I've never used the online on my Wii anyway. I was never big into the Virtual Console or Arcade deals they had because I didn't like buying "Nintendo Points".

With the thousands of back catalog games, and a lot of those pretty cheap now, this is a great entry level machine for someone new to gaming, kids or parents or pretty much everyone.

And for those complaining, just don't buy it. Its not like its forced on anyone, why bother spouting off about it? Lots of companies have released re-designed consoles later on.

Yeah this is not for me not compatable with Game Cube and no online capability I'll just stick with my old Wii. My grandmother has a Wii and she takes it online.

No Wifi means no internet access /online play no online store. Its not "compatible Game Cube discs, and the gamecube controller ports and memory slots have been removed."
Not to mention you won't have any of you classic virtual Nintendo classics because of well, no internet so that's a huge waste.

Stick with your Wii people you have online access along with BC with GameCube games. This an ENTIRE waste of money.

Damn Nintendo I wanna like you but I can't defend your mishaps/mistakes for long.

You've clearly missed the point in the Wii Mini. It's not here to replace your current Wii, it's not for people who want to play online, it's more for casual gamers who don't want to spend $200+ on a console. It's a good idea for a cheap Christmas present. If you want a new console with online play etc. Get a Wii U.

Money grab

Just what I've been waiting for! It's a Wii but mini. It's the Wii Mini :D
IQUITN4G  +   1166d ago
Sexy and definitely getting one of these. The size and look alone will have this fly off shelves.

Looks better than WII u

strange that the wii got a redesign, probably won't be attractive enough for current wii owners to get this but i guess for others who hasn't got one and don't care for online then this is fine.

I personally think the wii is small enough already.

nothing will ever beat the PS2 redesign, it slimmed down that beast of a machine to a tiny console but kept the slick look.

360 also looks great but its not small enough for me.

woul also like to note that the only redesigns I have ever purchased after owning the original is GB pocket and GBA SP. The only ever redesign I have ever had was the DS lite.

Hopefully Nintendo will step up and make some corrections, because if this is what you get, then shrinking it wasn't worth it.

I might as well buy this, I gave my modded white Wii to my brother and I still need to beat solo games like Metroid Prime 3, Other M, and Skyward Sword.

Plus I kind of dig the design.

DivineAssault  +   1166d ago

Wii mini that name is cute
Deku-Johnny  +   1165d ago
You can't really complain for a price like that.
TBONEJF  +   1165d ago
Only for Canada not the U.S. Plus Nintendo doesn't support online network for this Wii Mini
rezzah  +   1165d ago
Didn't they stop developing games for the Wii? I mean Nintendo of course, others are free to continue i believe.
360ICE  +   1165d ago
Might buy it for Galaxy actually. And don't go "What do you mean by Galaxy" on me. You know what I mean, Nintendo fans. It's all you're good for!

(Sorry, I'm cranky)
duff916  +   1165d ago
Mini Wii, you complete me.
TXIDarkAvenger  +   1165d ago
Biggest waste of money. I swear the original Wii is only $100. + the Wii U is out. There isn't even online, what are they thinking?
kingPoS  +   1165d ago
This new Wii mini seems to ditch a lot of options it's predecessor already had.

Lets be honest! Who here doesn't use WiFi today.

There's no mention of being able to use the classic controller/pro.
