Wii?" More Like "Why?"


This console is not "Mini", it is almost the same physical dimensions as the regular Wii. Nintendo has removed the following:1) slot-loading disc drive, 2) Gamecube support (ability to play Gamecube games, controller ports, memory card slots), 3)...

2nd system


It's great as a second system for my kids. I don't need gamecube functionality nor internet on this, so this is perfect and I save over a Wii or Wii U!
