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.
ok you freaks must mention that it has power supply ...

Summary: ok you freaks must mention that it has power supply of 120 volts Ac only.I powered it on and it blasted with a huge sound and smoke.burnt its power supply.We here in middle east have both 110 and 220v and my oprevious wii was having no issues coz it came with a power supply which can handle both ,This one was having no fuse or protection and it burnt on day one.I ordered another power supply and its working
Summary: I purchased the wii mini to use with the wii fit plus balance board. No where in the promotional or product information was it written that the wii mini could not be synchronized with the balance board. But it is not possible. I am very disappointed, and now must wait until I can afford the regular wii console.
Summary: If you are OK with a very stripped down version of the original Wii and do not care for connecting it to the internet this will be OK for you.. But I personally feel an original Wii is a lot better. Older Wii's play Gamecube games,have Gamecube ports for the controllers and built in WIFI. These are stripped down and do not play old Gamecube games. To some people that's OK. But what I don't think is OK is that these do not have WIFI.
Summary: I think that this console is more appropriate for kids. I mean if they tear it up it is not that expensive to replace. I bought one and my niece and her friends play on it. I have another wii for myself. Unless you do not mind no internet then this is the wii for you. Plus if you do not want to play it on an HDTV then this is the wii for you but if you want internet access and you want to connect it ti an HDTV then get the Wii or Wii U.
Summary: Why remake the Wii as a mini? I won't deny Wii is a fun system but you can barely find the games anywhere. The GameStop in my area has moved the little they have to one rack in a corner. So why make a system with no Wi-Fi when Nintendo has a online catalog of downloadable games for it? It makes no sense this should have Wi-Fi and been a Flashback model instead with say 20 plus of Nintendo Wii best sellers preloaded in it.
