Nintendo feeling the heat from Ouya? Sending out a subpar product that no one will want to play Mario kart or Smash bro's on because the lack of a gamecube controller.

So I don't think anyone has mentioned yet-- It doesn't support GC, and it doesn't have WiFi, and I'm pretty sure you can't do wired internet. The changes are drastic enough that I wonder whether or not it's running a slightly different Wii Menu...and if it's lacking USB ports, it would definitely seal the deal of NOT getting it. It could be neat, but it seems like it's missing important features and I'd want to USB load most likely.... I don't really care, as I got an original Wii for $20, but just wondering.

It sounds like it doesn't have an SD card slot or USB ports in addition to not having a network connection. I wouldn't be surprised if it didn't have a System Menu either (or at least had a very different one) since most of the stuff on the sysmenu is worthless without an internet connection (except the Mii channel). I doubt this Wii will be hackable since there is no way to put anything on it (like a game save) except for the disk drive.

What it should be: No Disc Wii, with retail games sold online.
What it is: Wii disc only, with no internet or online shop support, maybe we dont have even an USB port.
Agree. I was hoping (knowing it wasn't) that was the case. I was so hoping to see mods of the former.

Maybe someday.


I wouldn't by a non-wifi console in this day and age, but that's just me.

Has one use: For the back seat of my car. Provided it can SD load at least. I think it will have an SD slot, otherwise there would be no way at all to get saves off it, such as if someone bought one and then upgraded to the Wii U.

On NIntendo's website, it says "Compatible with 1,300+ Wii games" and when you click the image, it takes you to a list of Wii games. One of the games is a VC title. If it has no internet or SD slot, how would you play a VC title on it?

I wonder if the lack of online connectivity is just because it has no WiFi hardware, because if that is the case, and the Wii Mini still has USB ports, there the option of using the LAN adapter is still there.
