|Should have been Mini Wii. Also, what?|
Now, if I may be so bold, wasn't a NEW Nintendo console just released all of 9 days ago? One that the average casual onlooker is likely to already confuse for the already existing Wii? If so, why would Nintendo ever go back to the original Wii and release a new model? Shouldn't they be focusing on getting people to buy their new hardware, not gimped versions of old hardware? I already mentioned that Nintendo pulled this same stunt before to no avail but I guess they feel confident enough in both the Wii U and the Wii Mini to still be able to pull in a profit from both this Christmas. Either it's going to overshadow the Wii U or it's going to become another oddity for collectors like the Micro or the NES-101. My guess is the latter.
Nintendo has yet to confirm if the Wii Mini will see release outside of Canada but I'd say it's a safe bet that it will at some point.
