Slim Wii and its Fewer Features Not Coming to North America, Fans say "Okay."

Daniel writes - "So, first Nintendo went and announced a new slim Wii. We were like "Neat." And then, we learned that they'd made it smaller by cutting off the GameCube controller slots and gutting the backwards compatibility from the hardware. Then we were like "Ummmm." And, according to a correspondence with Destructoid, it turns out that Nintendo isn't planning on bringing the device to North America. Ever. Now we're like "Yes, that is just fine, Nintendo. Thank you."

I hated this idea. I'm glad its not coming State side.

But still, I'd like to see one in person. Just out of curiostiy.

it"ll make it's way over here.. People will import.. Trust me! I do agree with you about it not being released here though.

Handheld_Heroes3490d ago

I want to see just how much smaller it is compared to the old Wii. I also want to see what the insides look like

Why on earth would anybody buy a wii now?

Move on to a Newer system.

LoaMcLoa3490d ago

I would've bought a Wii, if I already didn't have one.

But I sure as hell wouldn't bought this one! No GC-support? Heck no!

why now you say ? let's say you are a jrpg fans ... "suddenly" three consecutive reasons fall on your lap : Xenoblade , Last Story , Pandora's Tower

Those don't apply to NA.

Baka-akaB3490d ago

Never said anything about NA . It's a cheaper pal model , and those games are pal . Seems like a perfect occasion for someone who cares about only a few select games

Handheld_Heroes3490d ago

I am REALLY considering getting one of these not only for reviewing those PAL games that will never come out here, but also I want to do a tear down of the device and show it on video or at least in pics of what we find inside.

this is the most stupid console redesign ever!

TGM3490d ago (Edited 3490d ago )

Surely if you ("you" being an enthusiastic gamer) wanted to play GameCube games on a Wii - or wanted the console at all - , you'd've bought one between 2006 and now, rather than wait until Christmas 2011. It's a bit of a non-issue, really.
