    I dont know if this is old news but I saw no mention of it myself. The Wii mini does indeed have one USB port for all of you who were curious. Below is a link to a much closer look at it and a side by side comparison to the original Wii. I will say that I do love the design and it reminds me of a old SNES for some reason mixed with the toploader from NGC like the article states. Will any of you buy one?

    Ya I don't mind I just want one for the look to be honest. As cheesy as that may sound I grew up on Ninty and I like this design for some reason.

    I'm really curious about this, I know the Wii Mini shouldn't be Internet compatible, but what happens if I connect a ethernet adapter from Nintendo via USB?
    Shouldn't it be exploitable via this Letterbomb!?

    Oh, but I forgot, even then there isn't a way to transfer files to the Wii....

    No. Even if Letterbomb was compatible with LAN adapters, you still need an SD card to put the exploit on.

    The Wii Mini doesn't look very mini compared to the original Wii. Looks like it's only 90% the size.

    You need a SD slot to hack it

    I use one of it on my wii to play with 2 microphones with USB loader. It works poorly, and only in few games.

    Well wouldn't it be better if it's powered? An unpowered hub like that is useless in most situations since a single USB port is only rated to give 500mah/5V, and with a device like that it's split between four ports, with four devices that all expect to have the full power...

    I know this has been said but the MiniWii is about as appealing as the PSP street was...

    Judging by the proportions I'd GUESS it's still using the same mother board so if you soldered on an SD card adapter MAYBE it'd work ... but with an added SD card adapter there's all kinds of disk exploits you can get working, too. A lot of work, though.

    Come to think of it, I wonder what it would say if you went into the settings menu on one of these things and asked it what it's MAC address is. Would the system menu just crash?

    One USB port is plenty for me. I could use it to charge my iPod since the games are better on that anyway.

    If the games on your iPod are so much better, just buy a USB charger for $3 instead of a Wii Mini then...?

    Terrific idea. That'll save me about $96.

    I couldn't imagine anyone buying Wii Mini, unless they were a collector of consoles.....

    1 USB port.

    Big fucking whoop. It would have been considerate of them to at least add a SD slot, so if they ever got a WiiU, they could transfer their saves.
