Alex on camera? I bet he looks even more like a creepy, rapey stalker than the last time we saw him.

So will the Wii mini collect less dust than my current Wii?

Wii Mini mouth needs to be a thing now. I was not expecting that.

Seems like the best use of the console.

This and I hope the end of week stuff happens.

Whoa. That Wii Mini sure looks like a video game system... That feels damn weird to see after every iteration of the current generation hardware (including the U) trying to appear as sleek and inconspicuous as possible... The Wii, especially, was a really nifty looking console, sleek and simple with that trademark Apple-esque sheen... And then this thing comes out. What the heck? I can appreciate the toy-like charm of it, but.. geez... No, I wouldn't put that under my TV. I do not approve.

Jeff looks like he had a hell of a weekend.

man, I really want that red wiimote

it's too bad the wii mini isn't cheaper, at the same time it costs $60 for a wii mote and nunchuck, so it's gotta cost a little more than that right?

@TopCat88: I thought so too. And with all of the horder-like boxers in the background, I assumed they were in Jeff's garage.

well, the coolest thing about the wii mini seems to be everything but the console itself.

So starved of content, the Giant Bomb community were ooking and clapping at Wii Mouth Jeff in amused awe.

...seriously. Dude put a top-loading Wii up to his face and pretended it was his mouth... and we loved it.

Posted by NickL

What are the dimensions on this thing? It doesn't seem mini at all compared to a normal wii

yeah it was pretty damn great.

i think at a solid $79.99 for the wii mini wouldnt've hurt (also having it PS2 late model slim and with wi-fi would not be amiss)

I agree, the Wii Mini isn't anywhere as 'mini' as I was expecting it to be, plus it looks super cheap and tacky.

Was it last Christmas holiday that they did that retro live stream of old games? Remember something, which I loved watching. Oh and Alex, woo!

Taking out component support, Nintendo you so crazy.

Seeing Jeff eat at his desk made me suddenly really want Chinese takeout.

I'm nearly positive he wasn't even eating Chinese. It was purely the "eating at desk" aspect.

@Kornnugget: actually no if your other wii is vertical it'll have less surface area for dust to settle on

Posted by civid

In a surprising turn of events, all GOTY videos AND podcast deliberations features Mini Wii mouth Jeff with Eraserhead hair. Looking forward to it :)

Posted by paisan13

At the moment I don't have my lenses in since it's morning over here and I just woke up. So when I saw Wii-Mouth-Jeff he really, I mean really looked strange...... or rather he looked kind a real ^_^

At first I wasn't terribly sure how to feel about the lack of composite support, but luckily Brad's face eloquently put me right.

Christmas on a Monday, though? Magical.

ALSO A NOSTALGIA STEAM WOULD BE THE BEST

Wai, what's wrong with the current Steam? =/

Where's your Brad, beard? I mean, beard, Brad?

Edited by xite

Looks like a weird Dreamcast or a Sony Discman.

edit: I'm saying it looks 90s as hell.

Will wii mouth Jeff be on the podcast?

Edited by Larsa

Who the fuck still use composite?

Edited by Deltan

Would love to see a classic gaming live stream. Day, half day, whatever.

The PS2 slim actually added functionality. You couldn't slot the hard drive in (for the 4 games that supported it?) but the network adapter was built in and it supported 720P component output for games that supported it like Shadow of the Colossus and God of War 2.

I've had my slim for so many years and never knew that. Guess I could check it out. Thanks duder.

I think you are mistaken, I'm fairly sure that nothing on the PS2 supported 720p output, and I think there were only four games that supported 1080i.

Anything else was 480p at best. The "high definition mode" in God of War 2 meant that it actually rendered a full 480p resolution image, rather than the sub-480 internal rendering resolution it would use with the standard "480p" option.

Just because the output is"480p" doesn't mean a game is rendering 480p, similar to the huge number of console games that are rendering below 720p today, despite "720p" or even "1080p" outputs to your TV.

And for what it's worth, component output sucks compared to RGB. If the game is 30fps, I would rather have 480i RGB, than 480p component. (480i at 30fps deinterlaces to 480p anyway, and you have the better quality RGB signal)

So I guess one big thing for Nintendo is that this Wii Mini can't be hacked. No SD card or network functionality makes that near impossible.
