Gamefocus.ca's Exclusive First Look At The Wii Mini

Gamefocus.ca brings an exclusive look at the upcoming Wii hardware revision: The Wii Mini. (Nintendo, Tech, Wii)

Personally, I think it looks kinda cool with the whole retro thing going on, but I still wouldn't buy it over the original. Especially given the extra features you get.

Hmmm... I think I would get this if I were a collector, but the fact that it doesn't have backwards compatibility kind of sucks, I love how my Wii is able to play GameCube games.

Still... it's 99 bucks, so maybe...

Backwards compatibility is one thing, but not having any sort of ability to connect to the internet, no SD card slots, and it costs about as much as the regular Wii... No thank you.

Hard to disagree with this. I do somewhat like the possibility of this becoming a collector's item, though.
BananaEatingSquid  +   970d ago
Yeah, the only thing really going for it is its different look. It looks like a toy! :)

Not being able to play SSBB with a gamecube controller sucks too

Cool to see comparison pics, looks great in person

It looking like a toy isn't a good thing imo
Vinc360  +   970d ago
It's probably aimed at kids. The article mentions that it seems more robust, maybe it's more resistant than the normal one? Plus not having access to the internet is probably actually a selling point for some parents. Heh. It's definitely not a good deal in my opinion, but I do think there might be a market for it.
BananaEatingSquid  +   970d ago
Lol, it isn't a good thing to me either. Personally I don't really like the look all that much, but I can see how collectors would pounce on it.

Edit: And yeah I can see how it might be attractive for parents as well.

i'll get this at some point merely for collectors sake and will never open it then i'll get another one when it drops in price

I imagined it being the size of one of those WD Passport HDDs. I would never buy this over a regular Wii. It's seriously gimped.
