The Wii is About To Get A Wii-bit Tinier

From the makers of the Game Boy Micro comes the Wii Mini. Nintendo announced that this Canada Exclusive console will be released in the Great White North on December 7th for $100 dollars. So besides the AV cables(composite), console, sensor bar, and Wiimote + Nunchuk, what else do you get? Nothing. In fact, according to this blip, you might be missing out more than just a bundled in game.

The Wii mini console does not connect to the Internet and does not support online features in games.
Compatible with Wii software and accessories. Internet connectivity features are not available.
The Wii mini console is not compatible with Nintendo GameCube Game Discs or accessories.

So no internet access or Gamecube backwards capabilities. My suggestion, if you don’t have a Wii already and wish to purchase one, you should lean towards getting an older model (with Gamecube games playability) or opt for a Wii U (if you can find one).

No word on whether this is coming to the US, but if it doesn’t I don’t think we’ll be missing out on much.

  1. This model seems completely useless. You can get a Wii bundle for like $130 and an old Wii on eBay for $60. I’m not even sure why they’re putting out the Wii Mini, shouldn’t they be trying to sell the Wii U? If anything it’ll take away from their holiday sales.

  2. Not sure of the move on this model… it’s more of a downgrade. I mean, what demographic do they think this appeals to? It’s like saying “Hey guys, see all the fun they are having with their Wii’s? Yes, you will have none of that!”
