Uh, what? It can play 100 percent of wii games. Thats what it can do and for 50 dollars basically that is enough

I get Nintendo's strategy here - this is similar to the 2DS - an entry-level console, for younger players.

This is a cheap way to get into gaming. Makes sense.

But I REALLY hope consumers will be able to realize that this IS a revision of the original Wii, and not the "new Wii". Hopefully this won't cause too much confusion for Wii U.

Not necessarily a wise thing for Nintendo to be doing. This holiday should be all about the Wii U. They can't afford to confuse consumers even more by having another Wii option out for them.

I really hope the sales staff are more educated this time around...

And here's to me walking into the Walmart this holiday only to leave wanting to ram my face into a wall after visiting the gaming section. For my area, this move was stupid on Nintendo. bad enough the game section staff don't seem to know shit about what they're working with.. but these people don't even organize. They just.. throw shit in. Last time I went they had 3DS XL's underneath the 360 section instead of the 3DS', they literally merged the Wii and Wii U section so it's a clusterfuck mess that'll be sure to confuse the shit out of un-informed parents..
Oh, but don't worry. The Ps3 and 360 sections are perfectly organized alongside the Ps4 and One sections.
Gamestop isn't any better.
I hope the consumers are smarter than the staff.

Yea my bestbuy did the same thing by mixing wii and wii u games in one section... its terrible...but the ps4 and one sections were all nice and seperate !

Ugh, common. You can pick a used Wii up for less than that, and it will be backwards compatible with GC and have online. Granted I still have not seen Mario Kart too cheap anywhere.
