i like the color, but no backwards compatibility throws any sort of interest out the window

It's a Canadian only Wii that doesn't play Gamecube games or support WiFi.

I would definitely buy one if it has an HDMI port.

This would have been perfect for me when I got my Wii a year and a half ago. I never use the internet on it and I still have a GameCube so backwards compatibility doesn't really matter to me. All I got my Wii to do was to play a few Wii-specific games, which is what I did.

Maybe I'll get a Wii... wait, no GameCube or controller support. Nevermind.

"They really want the Wii to have some legs?" Didn't it already sell a billion units? This is just another thing for people to buy that has the word 'Nintendo' on it. That fucking thing doesn't need anymore exposure.

It's absurd to have no internet connectivity.

Though I didn't use it much due to the lack of HD, the Wii interface for Netflix seemed the most natural.

The original Wii is already small and cheap. I don't get this.

kids below a certain age are likely to not notice a difference.

What age is that? Three? Believe me, if a kid is even in kindergarten, if they go over to a friend's house where they have a Wii U, they're going to know the difference.

This is baffling. Utterly baffling.

Looks pretty cool, but I think it's kind of a really strange idea. The Wii itself is already cheap enough. Pulling out Internet support and GameCube compatibility kind of ruins this.

Of course part of me thinks it's a really good idea. This will work for all of those Nintendo fans who haven't invested yet. They can get their New Super Mario Bros. Wii and Super Mario Galaxy 2 and be completely satisfied with this thing.

I just think this is a really weird idea, I don't anticipate it selling much, especially if it just in Canada.

It can't play gamecube games, and it can't connect to the internet, so no eshop games either. So even for $100 this isn't a great value considering the actual Wii is $150.

I can see them having these at hospitals or waiting areas or such where people don't need a good system to pass some time, just something they can fool around with.

This isn't going to confuse parents this Christmas at all.

But I just got a regular Wii that included New Super Mario Bros Wii for $115 last year during the holidays (in Canada, no less)... How is this new thing even remotely close to a better deal? >.> Heck, I imagine Boxing Day / Week sales will see the regular Wii's price dipping below $100 this year.
