Caution: no network ability, no game included, top loading disc

Summary: VERY disappointed. Does not come with Mario Kart, or any game at all. Does NOT have Wifi or any network abilities at all -- thus no ability to download Netflix, OR to download game updates. Granted, we were most interested in this game to play Wii Sports, which I *thought* came with the original Wii, but it does not come with this one despite it being shown in the picture.
Summary: Awesome, I love it very much. I don't care if it doesn't support online games or gamecube games, that to me is too much. I like playing disc games only and that's it, I also like the size of this console it saves a lot of space and it was so easy to hook up and I didn't ask for help. I was also very happy that its the cheapest console in my price-range I can afford. The Xbox one and the PS4, I just can't afford them. Man its even cheaper than the hand-held consoles to.

Summary: Shame on Nintendo for selling new iterations of the Wii when in fact they were not going to support it for much longer. Nintendo pulled the plug on their network for the Wii effective May 20, 2014. That means no more online gaming for your Wii Mario Kart and no more any of those things that many bought this console for. It in effect becomes half the game console it used to be. Nintendo stated that it was doing so in order to focus on the WiiU.
