In a surprising turn of events, it would appear that the Canadian website for Best Buy has let slip an advertisement for preordering a new, smaller version of the Wii called the "Wii mini", slated to release on December 7th.
This is quite the surprise. A new, boxy Wii just in time for the holidays. If the price is right, it might just be something rather lucrative for Nintendo. I was not expecting them to do anything more with the Wii platform, as they seemed to be trying so hard to just push the Wii U as the big new thing, but I guess they really want the Wii to have some legs. I'm curious to hear all of the details on what's included. As a cheap little Netflix and gaming box, I can definitely see its appeal for some time to come.
What are your thoughts on it? Might a smaller, cheaper Wii finally get the little guy into your home?
