74% of Gamers Don't See the Point of Wii Mini

Nothing like some controversial survey to drum up attention to your coupon site, eh? Voucher Codes Pro claims to have conducted a survey, stating that 74% of UK consumers don't understand the point of Nintendo's new smaller version of the Wii. (Wii, Wii mini)

It a pirate-free console
Wouldn't recommend it (no online service).

I sure as hell don't see the point of it... Much better off just getting a regular Wii.

I know I don't see a point to it; I own a Wii and it is pretty mini compared with other consoles as is.

Wii already was pretty much Mini at launch.

The wii was already barebones in looks and content as is ...

Should be a lot higher.

- No online (which means no VC/WiiWare/Netflix/Hulu/Online play)
- Only 1 USB port
- No GameCube support
- No SD card slot
- No component/s-video support

There's really no point to it. Add a little extra and get a normal Wii if you want one :/

at that price i'd get a used Wii better

Not only don't I see the point of Wii mini. I also don't see the point of Wii, or Wii-U (esp the latter).

Time to build a proper console and stop fucking about Nintendo.

And why doesn't Nintendo invest the Wii Minis R&D on the Wii U instead?

There's no real point to the Wii Mini.

look at the freaking console, damn it
there's nothing spent on R&D for THAT! they just stripped out everything except the very basic Wii functionality and just pray for the retards to buy it!

I missed out on the Wii games this gen and would love to play them, the pricing for the Wii Mini is pretty good and I couldn't really care less about online and piracy so its not such a terrible deal.

However, Wii U has got some great games coming out for it this year so think I'll take the double hit and just buy a Wii U and all the Wii games I missed for it.

£85 to play the Wii games...or
£300 to play the Wii games and new Wii U games when they're out.

I recommend the Wii U for those who want to play Wii/U software (Wii accessories also function with the Wii U).
CaptainN  +   500d ago
Um people are stupid that's why....its cheaper to produce, which means even more profit for Nintendo....that is why it exist.
HarryMasonHerpderp  +   500d ago
What's the point in making something cheaper to produce if no ones going to buy it?
Complete waste of money if you ask me.
CaptainN  +   500d ago
Well obviously people are still buying Wii's that's the point, and since it has only been out in Canada, and considering they sold 35,700 so far I would think that was what they were looking for!

HarryMasonHerpderp  +   500d ago
I'm shocked that people are still buying wii's to be honest.
The 10th Rider  +   500d ago
I definitely wouldn't buy one. The only reason I can see for ANYONE to buy one is that it would work great for a portable console, seeing as it's only a little larger than a CD player.
Jek_Porkins  +   500d ago
It's an impulse buy at $99, parents might buy it as an alternative to something more expensive, people who don't care about internet services might want to take advantage of a low price and a huge library of games.
