Wii Slim (Wii Mini) Red and Black System Announced For Canada At $100. New Streamlined Console Removes Online Capability, Shrinks Size. Doesn’t Play GameCube Games

09 Dec

Wii Mini Slimline System Canada Only 99 Dollars

Super sexy!

The Wii Mini slimline, streamlined Wii system is a new holiday treat for Canadians. This new system shrinks the Wii down even further, offers a very cool new two-toned design and removes a number of key features for an ultra-budget $100 price point!

Cut features include the complete absense of Wi-Fi and Online Capabilities ( :O ) and no GameCube backwards compatibility. Nintendo is taking a “it’s all about the games” tagline with this system, saying it’s for those who only want to play a few Wii titles and don’t care about the Wii Virtual Console, WiiWare, Netflix or any of that jazz.

Here is an unboxing of the super sexy Wii Mini system.

This may only be a test-run, with Nintendo testing the waters to see how the system is recieved in a country that doesn’t have a high number of people online compared to other countries. If it is well recieved, we may see a launch of the Wii Mini elsewhere, like in the USA, Mexico, Latin America, Europe, China, Russia, etc.

Just be sure you know what you are getting into if you pick up a Wii Mini, and be sure to educate others around you who may not realize they are picking up a system with no online capability.

The Wii Mini launched on December 7th 2012 only in Canada, and thus is out now at $99 Canadian Dollars. No word on when or if the system will hit other territories.
