Really good deal for casual gamers and kids. Nerds shut up all ready

Summary: I know I could have got a used wii for about the same price but the fact is that this is a brand new system with a remote, nunchuck, and game; all for the unbeatable price of a hundred dollars. My wife bought me this because I had been talking about getting a video game system for my daughter and I to play with together but I didn't want to drop three to five hundred dollars on something we would use sparingly.
Summary: I was trying to rack my brain on all the hate behind this console. But then I realized, taking out the Gamecube ports, online, and SD Card, really affect one game the most: Super Smash Brothers. If you are the type of casual gamer that just wants this console to get your fill of Mario, then this console is just fine. The console is not only a steal, especially with Mario Kart included, but many of the Wii hits are at great prices as well.
Summary: I am very happy to be able to buy a Wii for such a reasonable price. For me personally, having a Wii that isn't compatible with Game Cube games isn't a problem because I do not own any Game Cube games. I actually owned an original Wii and enjoyed it quite a bit, but due to unfortunate circumstances it stopped working. So not being able to afford either the new Xbox or Playstation this holiday season I am at least happy to replace my old Wii.
Summary: It is the bare bones of Wii's no Gamecube and no internet and at a good price of $100. Even though it's a Canadian exclusive it does work on American TVs and US Wii games. The console sits flat, has a disc lid kinda like the Gamecube, no Gamecube memory card or controller ports, no SD card port.
Summary: It's a good product. It is a Wii, with no gamecube support and no online access. I would like to point out that it is currently being sold elsewhere for $100. Anyone charging more than that at the time of this review is trying to ripping you off.
A solid little console ideal for budding young gamers.

Summary: A basic console for the basic gamer, ideal if you've no need for the internet connectivity element of the original Wii console. The current price here seems a little steep, I would suggest shopping around or waiting for the price to dip as I wouldn't pay any more than £80 for this console.
