    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.
