Summary: The only reason i bought the wii mini is because i was in a hurry to buy it and couldnt find the normal wii. In the picture it looks nice but i feel that i bought an imitation of wii, the material quality it looks so cheap, it opens with the old traditional way like the most consoles used to be years ago and what bothers me more in my country i paid the same price as the normal wii. When i asked whats the difference they told me its smaller.
Summary: The Wii Mini isn't so mini... in fact it is just as thick and just as wide as a regular Wii, only it is roughly two inches shorter. It cannot be propped up, it must be played flat. It opens via a door, much like the GameCube. Unlike the GameCube, however, the door is INCREDIBLY flimsy and WILL break if you hand it to a child. There are no online capabilities whatsoever, no GameCube compatibility and (as far as I know) no component capability.
