Wii Joins Portable Market with 7-Inch Screen

Fancy waggling in the car, on an aeroplane or playing Wii Sports on the beach. Now you can with a swanky 7-inch screen.

The screen comes equipped with the Wii in mind. No wires, no mess. With a built in sensor bar and shaped to slot into the rear-end of the machine, the device snugly wraps its 16:9 LCD Screen around the Wii's already teeny body.

The story is too old to be commented.

didn't the gamecube have something like this? i think i remember using it on the way to quebec with a friend of mine. they suck because it's so damn small.

Most consoles eventually get these portable screens.

Apparently they sell enough to be worth making, but I've never known anyone who got one.

Ye I've never really seen anyone with these portable screen, and I imagine how you will play standing up while looking at the screen.

this little screen is a step into the portable console business yet for pretty much every wii game (or was it the main screen i cant remember), a little warning comes up on screen telling you to have room to comfortably stretch your arms out lol.....my point is - try doing that in a car lol, or in fact in any form of transport.

Im not entirely sure what the point is in these screens. I suppose theres a small market for them, but god knows, iv never brought one and as a matter of fact dont actually know of anyone who actually has.

On the upside it does go very well aesthetically :-).

Actually I got one of these for my PSOne back in the day and used it quite a bit. In fact, just recently I used it to play Metal Gear Solid on a family trip. But I think the PSOne is really the only console I would ever get one of these for.

Ironically, I think I've passed 2 or 3 cars and I've seen kids playing Wii in the backseat using those headrest monitors. And I know my cousins have done it.
