Nintendo Wii Mini

 

The Wii revision that nobody asked for.

Attractive design ; Cool red controllers

No online connectivity ; Composite AV only ; Not that much smaller than the original Wii ; Top loading drive actually means it takes up more space

It also means you can’t download apps for services such as BBC iPlayer and YouTube, and - possibly most serious of all - it prevents patches from being applied to existing software. The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword shipped in 2011 with a...

Nintendo Wii Mini

 

Amid the fuss surrounding the launch of the Wii U it's easy to forget that Nintendo also released another new piece of hardware at the end of 2012: the scaled-down Nintendo Wii Mini. Essentially a Wii in different clothing, the system is currently...

The Wii Mini is a good idea on paper. The Wii is now six years old and has sold millions, so a cheaper hardware revision is an excellent way of rejuvenating interest and picking up some more fans. Sadly, Nintendo has robbed the machine of so much...

Nintendo Wii Mini review: Mini in all the wrong ways

 

Nintendo's stripped-down new Wii game system may seem affordable, but it also leaves a lot behind.

The ; is compact and very affordable, and the bundle's price is only a few dollars more than some of its components would cost if purchased separately.

No online functionality means you won't be able to play downloadable retro Wii games or watch Netflix; it can't connect to HDMI ports, and can't display HD video; original Wii can be found for just a bit more, or even less if purchased used.

The bare-bones Wii Mini gets rid of many Wii features to just focus on playing disc games, but the stripped-down experience isn't worth the savings.
