    Walmart already has these in their backroom. I was wondering why there was a new bundle I hadn't heard about, but now I guess it's a console redesign.

    Hmmm.... It's funny that the Wii got the smallest console redesign of this generation, compared to the PS3 and the X360. I suppose that says something about its design, am I right? ;)

    No Gamecube backwards compatibility and a cheaper price tag.

    My kid does he wants to be able to play LLuigi'smansion and Mario sunshine. Other kids probably won't give 2 shits either way tho.

    You can get a used Gamecube for like $30. Quit crying about it. The Wii had better first parties anyway.

    Not crying about anything, and I don't need a used gamecube since I still have my working launch day system. It's just nice not having to get it out and hook it up for my son now.

    I really don't give a crap either way, but it's nice that I picked up a second one before it was removed.

    It comes with a game and a soundtrack though as well. It's also a Wii Controller Plus.

    Is it coming with Wii Sports?

    when I jumped on purchasing the sports package edition whatever they called it, it came with the wii motion plus sports and the wii sports. imho this system should ALWAYS come with wii sports which is a pack in game and also one of the best games ever made for Wii (or yet any system :P)

    Had I known that all consoles would eventually be hacked, I could have waited but actually it wasn't that necessary to do. I own two Wii consoles, both modded and one boxed :) I should play it more. Mario Kart was great on that system.

    The bad part isn't the lack of gamecube playback but the lack of gamecube controller support.

    Those things are awesome, I use them for Mario Kart Wii, Smash Bros Brawl and Sonic Colours.
    But then I could learn to love the Classic Controller Pro.

    Still, the budget model is clear, the system is five years old now and going out with the WiiU, if they were using gamecube components to make the Wii in the past, they aren't now.
    This is about using up the Wii.

    This will still cost the same as any other wii that has bc lol.I'm sure it can be hacked to play gc games again but for the controller idk how you would make it work.
