    Looks like it from what we can see here. If you check out the Best Buy Canada front page you see a small red Wii Mini.

    The Wii Mini definitely looks small, slightly taller than the Wiimote, comes with the usual accessories and arriving on December 7th!

    There is so much more we need to know. Is it a slot loader like previous Wii's? Will it support Gamecube games? Though don't expect that since the most current Wii doesn't support it.

    I am really digging the colour scheme, but I think we should wait for an official announcement. I get the whole idea of making it small - my Wii was quite a journeyman even in its standard version as I often took it with me on parties and it did liven them up - making the system smaller only makes that more convenient.

    I'm not English speaker, so maybe I do not got the right idea, but, for what I understood, you use a video game to get girls? Weird...

    ...No.

    I bring my Wii to parties, everybody gets drunk and then we play games. The second part was a joke, signified by the "creep" emoticon... since... well...

    When them girls are shakin' the Mote, they're shakin' all around. :creep:

    Well. I very well might get this. 'Specially if it comes in Blue and Black. Like an XL.

    Looks very strange... The rough finish plastic makes it look like something from the NES era.
    Also: What to expect? A cost and size reduced Wii console. No GC support. Just a Wii. Doesn't even look like its got an SD card slot.

    I wish they would have come up with this a couple of years ago....Since july last year I've been travelling all over Europe and I took my Wii with me in my laptop bag..along with the essential sensor bar, wiimote+nunchuck, and the external HDD of course.....
    This model would have been so much better to carry around, and it seems much more durable too and less prone to scratching !
    Of course it looks cheaper as well, but it reminds me of the 80s - 90s Nintendo era where console were a little bit more child abuse resistant....

    If USB loaders works on it, I might buy it just for collection purposes.....;)
