Just because you have no need for it, doesn't mean someone else won't take advantage of this.
A normal Wii cost $99. Not wanting to buy this justified for some people.
Like Wind Waker, Desert Storm I/II, Viewtiful Joe, Bomberman Generation, I-Ninja, Resident Evil 4, Skies of Arcadia Legends, Tales of Symphonia, Super Monkey Ball 1/2, and many others.
No GC compatibility and no internet whatsoever, so no VC and WiiWare games? Wow. That sounds terrible. But I suppose it's ok for those people who just really want to play some Wii games, but can't afford a Wii U or a normal Wii.
And either way, what's the difference between a kid having their own console or their own 3DS? The mini at least is cheaper.
I would get it if I didn't already have a Wii as I don't have internet connection to my Wii or any GameCube games
It's a bit poitless, but collectors may buy it for the red Wii-Mote and Nunchuck, and it's good for younger kids, wou wouldn't use Wi-Fi, i guess.
All the other kids with the pumped up kicks you better run, better run...

If you believe in Jesus Christ put this in your profile and don't just ignore this, because in the Bible it says,
If you deny me, I will deny you in front of my Father at the gates of Heaven.
† I am a Christian and proud of it! Copy and paste this if you are too.†
For the Wii Mini to be a "con" it would require Nintendo to deceive their customers into believing that the Wii Mini can do everything that the regular Wii can do.
