Nintendo Introduces New Wii Mini Console for $100

Nintendo just launched a brand new Wii console earlier this month, but when is one ever enough? The company today announced another addition to the Wii line in the form of the cheaply priced Wii Mini.

 

Leaked by Best Buy Canada earlier this morning, the Wii Mini focuses just on Wii games. As a result, those purchasing the Wii Mini will be sacrificing the ability to play GameCube games as well as internet access.

"It's a great value for first-time Wii owners who just want to jump in and experience all the great Wii games that helped usher in a revolution in motion-controlled gaming," said Nintendo.

 

Right now, the Wii Mini is exclusive to Canada and priced at $99.99. We'll keep you updated if Nintendo plans to launch outside of the Great White North.

    $20-30 more for a full featured Wii. I think Walmart had the full featured one for $89 on BF. When I saw the no internet, I thought this was stupid. How are you going to buy all the classic games from the Nintendo Store. This is one of the best features of the normal Wii.

    No internet?

    Another pointless Nintendo product.

    TBH, rather just get a used Wii. Sure, GCN is dirt cheap by now, but the extra wires and clutter are a pain.
