    SAME as the normal (new) Wii

    so it
    JUST FOR PLAYING RETAIL WII GAME
    NO WIIWARE OR VC

    Probably not, unless they manage to flash new NANDs to it that somehow have preinstalled apps.

    Nobody said that.

    It will still have a NAND, otherwise where would games/Miis be saved? Brawl -> Stack Smash -> HBC.

    The original (retail) Wii didn't play DVDs, so it's really doubtful the new one will.

    Maybe disc swapping would work for homebrew emulation

    I'm getting a wii so this is nothing.
    But it would sometimes be worth if it would be hacked.

    The wii mini sucks. No GCN support (that was a given, without even knowing the specs). No internet, guys? Ugh. This should sell for $50. The last time I bought a full featured Wii it cost me $129 shipped and well worth it. One of the best consoles of all time and I am a former xbox360 fan.

    I'm sure you'll be seeing these second hand fast for sub-$85 range. People who get this "present" (I leave a lot of those in the toilet) for christmas aren't going to be happy.

    Two Gamecubes taped together and then half a layer shaven off for no reason.

    Lol, power usage? Who cares about that.
    I got a wii for $93 and it's worth it. Not like a piece of plastic for $100.

    No Internet
    No GC-support
    No Wiiware
    No Virtual Console
    No Component Cable
    No SD-slot

    This may seem like an awkward release, but then again. It all comes down to business and making money.
    Nintendo will probably roll out some GC-games for VC on Wii-U later on, so it´s clear that they want to cut the option to play these. All in all, it´s a real crackdown on piracy, wich I think is good. But it´s also a crackdown on the gamers that legally wants to play the older stuff =(. I am glad that I got myself a brand new & boxed Wii with GC-compatibility, so I will still be able to play my old GC-games in the future.

    I dont know how this is a good idea for nintendo. I mean it just feels awkward and pointless.
