    What if people are scared of the color red.

    I mean, that's a thing.

    Then they will have to suck it and get over their silly phobia. Failing that then they could just paint it a different colour.

    In other news Nintendo has no plans to release it the UK.

    Of course this could be due to the fact that we already have a redesigned Wii so why release another model for a dying system.

    What does this even mean?



    I guess this needs repeating: if you think this is affecting Nintendo's ability to get Wii U units on the shelves, you would be wrong.
    Niet, nein I thoroughly decline that is not what I mean. Nintendo's hardware is as people have put it usually made of nintendium. Wii Mini is just a crappier version of the Wii made with cheap materials. Which people have been complaining about in regards to the Wii U (nintendo cut back on the hardware and some other things to make the console cheaper)(hence why its mast produced with lower end plastic(by nintendo standards).

    Okay, again, how could you possibly know the quality of the plastic on hardware that isn't out yet? And even more importantly, even if you did know, who the hell cares?

    No one's been complaining about this.

    This is ludicrous.

    Remember who is making the accusations of Nintendo using crappy hardware, here.

    It's funny because Nintendo systems have pretty much been proven to be the toughest gaming devices around.

    I said cheap by nintendo standards.

    I take it you dont read Japanese forums BVCM.

    People have been complaining about the cheaper quality and have been saying nintendo has been skimping out to combat selling the Wii U at a loss( which has already been weaned out to save them money)


    I thought I made it clear I dont like mechanical drives, they are pretty piss poor the drive in the Regular Wii is a much nicer one.

    Which is why i have expressed doubt over Nintendo making cheap products(the definition of cheap in this regard has been set by nintendo's own precedent) to combat production losses in their vast wealth.

    Assuming he only speaks English, I don't see why he would.

    A small minority of people on the internet hardly count as "people".

    How would you even know this?

    It's a Wii that plays Wii games. What more do you want?

    I'd want this if it played Gamecube games, so I could have something smaller beside my Wii U. I have all my Wii data on my Wii U anyway. Actually they should just make a GCN Mini to accompany Wii U systems on our TV stands...

    The GameCube was already about as mini as you can get.

    Not to mention it's, you know, dead and buried.

    You should know that games from 13 years ago not playable on today's hardware is grounds for internet rage.

    There are no 13 year old Gameube games. Anyhow, isn't the Wii U Store getting downloadable versions of titles from the GameCube library?

    well until they release every GC game that way, people will still want a GC to play their games on. plus we dont need a GC mini, the original GC is small and costs about 30$

    Nobody should have GameCube games if they don't own a GameCube or a Wii. Think about the logic of your post

    EB Games doesn't accept any new GC consoles, accessories or games. Not sure about Gamestop, but considering it's the same company, it must be the same policy. As for Amazon and eBay, some people don't have access to buying online. I lucked out with Twilight Princess because a friend of mine had it for sale. I haven't seen the GC version of it at EB in years.

    True but mine seems to have a surplus of GC's available. And as to the online thing, just buy a 25$ amazon gift card and go to the library and order ot from there.

    Probably things like wind waker and gale of darkness.

    I agree. I'd be very surprised if titles like those two, SSB Melee and most Mario names didn't make it to the virtual store though.

    Just like the original Mario Party never made it to the Wii VC. I've been looking for it for ages, but everywhere, I only find Mario Party 2 and newer.
