I usually like Nintendos redesigns but this looks like a giant pile of shite. What is it with console manufacturers this gen and steadily making inferior versions of the hardware as time progresses. ( That excludes MS that actually bothered to make a better machine in S)

Ok, i can live without the internet part but to not have Gamecube compatability is the killer for me, i sold my Wii recently but kept the GC titles, when i saw this i thought wwwoooo this looks cool, however reading what they have stripped out kills it, now if they had released this WITH GC compatability and HD visuals then i would have bought one, anyways $99.99, who are they kidding you can get a full blown Wii with all the trimmings for less than that even now!!!

Just what I was thinking !

I wonder how many kids are going to be let down on Xmas day when they realise their daft parents have bought them a Wii mini, rather than a Wii U - does seem odd bringing out two consoles at the same time...especially when the Wii U offers backwards capability :?

What next, the Wii shuffle, where you can wear it on your arm ?

Looks like something I used to get onto the toilet as a kid.

I quite like the design too, old school but cool. Taking out the GC compatibility is bad though. Naughty nintendo.
Some say he's half man, half fish. Others say its more of a 70/30 split. Whatever the percentage, he's one fishy bastard.

GC backwards compatibility has been out for a while hasn't it?

It does definitely look different to the Wii/Wii U design, so maybe that's something. If by some miracle it ended up being £60 over here, that wouldn't be too pad, seeing as a Wiimote+ and nunchuk will set you back £35-£40.

Still not sure I get the point though. It's not like the Wii was ever a horrible hulking great thing like the 360/PS3.

I dont care about taking out the gamecube compatability, want to play gamecube games get a gamecube, they are so cheap its insane.

The design however is awful, looks like something i used to see in old doctor who programs, if it hits the UK at say 49.99-59.99 im sure at some point i will get one to stick in the collection but never open or use.

The biggest problem is taking away all internet compatability, not being able to link to the store is a huge mistake as is not being able to play stuff like Monster Hunter online.
