    The upcoming Canada-exclusive Wii Mini has no backward compatibility with Gamecube games like the original Wii model, and also lacks the ability to connect to the Internet. However, it turns out it also has no SD Card slot.

    Nintendo World Report were informed by Nintendo of Canada that the Wii Mini will lack an SD Card slot. This makes the device incapable of transferring saves to the Wii U at a later point.

    Considering Ninty allready removed everything what made the Wii the Wii.
    You're probably right on that.

    ;o; no internal memory, no dvd drive, no SD card slot, no USB.
    IT'S A BOX THAT DOES NOTHING ;o;

    Well, I mean, no networking (USB LAN would probably work though), no BC, no SD, you might just be on the right track.

    You could buy a Wii mini for the red Wiimote/Nunchuk, sell everything else that came in the box for $50, and come out $10 ahead. If you thought the original Wii was a toy... hoo boy.

    It's basically unhackable unless you're DeadlyFoez or Team Twizzlers. :ph34r:

    I don't think having an infectus/progskeet would make it hackable, but DeadlyFoez is not the only one who has one. They did make more than one, you know. :P

    Nintendo finally made a secure revision of their console... by removing everything that makes it a console.

    I'd still be interested to see if Foez could figure anything out with it.

    it most likely has a modified OS that removed any channel that need internet , removed the internet setting form the system setting
    and removed any sd card support

    Does it have USB ports? I haven't seen anywhere confirming that or not...
    Also, how can it have no internal memory? You wouldn't be able to save you game progress. That can't be true.

    Where do you get that it has no internal memory?

    You wouldn't be able to update it, ever.

    You wouldn't even be able to boot it.

    I bet it doesn't have any kind of system menu. Probably just a prompt to insert a game disk if there isn't one.

    That actually makes sense. Without the internet or gamecube game compatability, the only logical thing for the thing to do is to ask for a Wii disc. (can't use any internet based channels, can't use any sd card based channels like the photo channel, can't get any wiiware or vc games). The only thing besides playing wii games that you could possibly do with the thing is create Miis. So maybe you have 2 choices, create a mii, or play your wii game.

    I do bet that at the very least it doesn't have the standard wii dashboard. If it did, it would be the saddest dashboard ever, just the disc channel and the mii channel.

    I just have to say wow lol I would think if it has USB ports it can still be hacked by some method. I don't understand why they would remove everything that allows internet connections, you might as well go retro NES for real....

    Cool Fact NES could actually connect to the internet and in Japan they had a controller which had a built in microphone Whoo! Game Informer! lol & the Winner goes to Wi... nurp NES!!!!!!

    The standard spec listed that it will have a harddrive and an SDHC memory card slot, but no internet connectivity.
    I'd say it's back to the days of PSX, except this one looks more like a McDonald's Happy Meal Box. B-)

    Thought that was speculated since it has no internet and you cannot buy anything, they took out the storage space.
    Updates? It's very unlikely the Wii will get any further updates and besides, no internet connection (though a disc-based one could be possible).
    How about them USB ports? I haven't seen anything on those...

    It likely still has to have the IOSs on there to interact with which IOS the game was made to use. If so, it technically should still be hackable (if there are USB ports).
