Wii Mini: Exclusive to Canada and Only $99
Yes, more Wii related news, but it seems like Canada gets a break this Holiday season as Nintendo is releasing a new model Wii system for Canada only. For only $99 and available December 7, the model has removed Gamecube support as well as Internet access. No information is available about its potential availability in other territories in the future. At an introductory price of $99.99, the red and black Wii Mini system comes with the console, sensor bar and a Red MotionPlus controller with Nunchuk.
While the system has no Internet connectivity options or Gamecube support, it features full functionality and compatibility with the Wii’s expansive library of over 1,300 games and its associated peripherals, totaling nearly 1 billion games sold. From the massively popular Mario Kart Wii, to the Legend of Zelda series, the simplified nature of the Wii Mini allows for an easier out-of-the-box gaming experience, and is perfect for those who want to check out the Wii and could not pick up the console before, or a quick addition to a rec or gaming room. If you have a Wii already, a Mini would make a great backup, or travel size companion.
