In one way, Wii Mini and PS3 Super Slim are superior to all other current-gen and next-gen consoles

The Wii Mini is widely considered to be one of the worst console redesigns in gaming history. It's not backwards compatible with GameCube games and peripherals; it can't access the Internet, making it impossible to download Virtual Console games or WiiWare titles; it only has AV output... the system's inferior in every way to the original model of the Wii.

Well, almost every way. The Wii Mini features a top-loading disc drive, something no other console has boasted since Nintendo's own GameCube. While it's not as high tech, there are a lot of benefits to this type of drive. Sony's recent redesign of their current gen-console, the PS3 Super Slim, also features a top-loading drive, and it's definitely a change for the better.

As you will see, the method used by the Wii Mini and PS3 Super Slim for loading discs is superior to those used by every other current and next-gen console for a number of reasons.

I do love top loading drives

darthv721071d ago

the wii mini is one of those obscure redesigns that not many will get but it will be worth more on the collectors market.

Like the nes top loader or the snes mini.

i want one just because its different in a cool retro sort of way.

wii mini cant even connect to the internet

nice try with the eye catching title, but top loading drives are trash. just because its not electronic, doesnt mean it cant break easily. top loading drives involve top-heavy swiveling pieces of plastic: just about a million things can go wrong with it. let me tell you ive seen a many more top-loader PS1/ps2 with broken springs that force the console to stay closed then i have ps3s and wiis with credit cards in them (?!?) and you better pray you never actually hit the top piece!

Good story,the article does make some good points, but so does master raiden, everything has it's pros and cons, and although personally I do prefer the top loading drives, that's not going to stop me from buying machines like wii u. it's the games that make it for me, but to each their own, I guess.
