thr console is naff no gamecube or Internet features but £49 for a wii remote plus, nunchuck and sensor bar is good if you picked up a 8gb wii u over Christmas.

The online was shut down midway through last year, the only thing that was open was the eshop and its pretty useless without a GameCube controller which the mini doesn't support

Better off jist picking up a second hand Wiii for half the price.

As people have said, better odd buying a 2nd hand Wii. The irony is that this came bundled with Mario Kart Wii; a game predominantly online, rofl.

I brought this model for my daughter last year, she said that the older model was a lot better due to it having wi-fi (net flix, iplayer etc.)

Doesn't it only have composite output too so the tv output quality is terrible especially on modern flat screen televisions. No RGB scart or component.

The original first release wii is the one to have as Nintendo kept reducing features with each revision until we ended up with the wii mini.

The only good thing about the wii mini is its robust design, ideal for younger children and the fact the disc drive is meant to be excellent at reading discs. No problem with dual layer discs like many early wii's.

It's easy to get an early wii for £20 though so can't see the point of the wii mini.

I would agree with other sentiments, at this late stage of the Wii's life, if you really want to consider one (remember the Wii U is actually backwards compatible with Wii Software) then your local pawn shops will have healthy stocks for you to check the second hand condition, or gumtree etc.

I think most of us feel cheated by the Wii, the first motion controlled console. By the time the novelty wore off and you realised the motion control was gimmicky and ineffective, you were left with a dust machine that sold to millions of non-gamers with a predominently poor software library.

Double edged sword for Nintendo because some people are reticent to try the Wii U after being bitten by the Wii, which in my opinion is a far better balanced console.

The Wii had the best composite output of any console and composite is actually the preferred choice for very large screen lcd or projector as the lower res is less defined. They also look fine on Plasma screens.

The "point" of the Wii mini was for Nintendo to make more profit for it's share holders. Unless your'e new to gaming, you'll notice Nintendo rarely make the right decisions in pleasing their customers.
The fact that used Wii's are plentiful and dirt cheap would have had no bearing on the design decision to cut the Wii down.

If you just want to play Wii games then this is a good deal. You can't beat buying brand new. Who knows what a second hand Wii has been through. Could pack up within a week.

The Wii wasn't just about motion control. The controller acted like a mouse as a pointing device, which pleased many gamers. Not only was it easier to navigate the menus, it worked well in games such as Pikmin, Little Kings story and gave a much better and still unrivalled experience in FPS games.
What really upset gamers, was the graphics soon looked very dated as the games on the Xbox 360 and PS3 started to improve.
The funny thing is, the Wii launched after the 360 and was not only the best selling of it's generation, but one of all time.

The Wii mini is a tiny console, designed to make a bit more profit for Nintendo allowing people to enjoy the disc games, rather than just kill off the platform.

its all a big gimmick. Don't know why they carried on and made the Wii U. At the time others release PS4 & X-Box One the make a console that's similar power to the 360 but with a massive 2GB ram (pointless). They could've at lease improved the wii sensor bar as Sony and Microsoft did with their Cameras.

:) You are so right! Just the thought of someone elses hands being on the controller, makes me cringe. No matter how much disinfectant I will use

your local CEX would sell the official sensor bar for a tenner if any in stock. they sell nun-chuck for £5 I believe and a remote for £12. Just sell stuff you don't need towards them. lol

No-one actually plays with their Wii (ours has sat under the family TV untouched for 3 years) and so wouldn't know.

I have seen these, they are barely any smaller than the standard Wii, hardly what i would call mini. I don't like it at all, especially the top loading mechanism

Yes. The image quality of an original model Wii via component cable for 480p display is preferable to Wii/Wii Mini via composite cable. The difference in image quality is very noticeable.

Completely agree with the comments regarding the Wii mini being a poor console as it is a stripped down Wii but for £49 brand new this is a good price for collectors who have been waiting for the price to drop.

Ordered one to add to my Nintendo collection which will most likely stay in the box as I have a Wii and Wii U already. Might use the remote plus though.

Heat added.

Incorrect. Wii has only sold two thirds of the total sales of PS2 so it's not even close to being the best selling console of all time.

Also, according to the most recent sales figures Wii is still a couple of million units short of matching PS1's total sales.

If one is to also include handheld consoles then Wii is currently only the fifth best selling console of all time.

Pointless buying a wii console hardly any decent games for them now,better off buying a wii u.
#37
Spend another £1 and get £15 off? What am I missing here?
#38
Only reasons to buy this is if you really like the colour/design and prefer a new console rather than used.

How could they improve on the sensor bar? It is nothing but 2 infra red beams.
You can even substitute the bar for 2 candles!
