Exclusive to Canada until at least 2013. Top-loading disc drive, no WiFi connectivity, no Gamecube ports, no SD card slot. No pack-in title, either. Oh, and it's $100. So, even for the parents looking for the cheapest console possible for their brats... you're better off buying a non-gimp Wii used. Looks kinda cool in a very 70's/80's way, but still. Who is the target audience for this? It's like a redux of the Game Boy Micro. Only thing I can think of - kill Wii production, replace it with this thing to make the distinction between the consoles more visible? But... why? Why not just un-fuck your marketing? Why does this console exist? Who are they trying to sell it to? Who is actually going to say "Well, I hadn't owned a Wii, but now that it's shittier, that's too good to turn down."? Maybe the plan is to sell it at cost in developing countries, to open up a market for software? But then why the fuck are they selling it in Canada?
