Worse console revision ever?

@Y_5150^ pretty much.

It isn't that much smaller at all.

They removed core features and functionality. No internet connectivity whatsoever. No GameCube bc. No component cable connection or even 480p... What in the f**!?
It's literally just a disc drive.

But hey, it's cheap!

What an abomination. If any console manufacturer ever tried an easy "cash-in" it is Nintendo with this absolutely atrocious version of the Wii. I once considered getting a Wii for the fantastic first-party games, but now: NO CHANCE IN HELL.

The real dick move is blocking the use of the USB-to-Ethernet dongle, despite having a USB port.

Seriously Nintendo, how much money did you save by making the effort to REMOVE an OS feature that would cost nothing to leave in?

How about the potential extra revenue you could have made from the sales of USB dongles and WiiWare and VC software?

Just thinking about Nintendo's logic behind this is melting my brain.
