You lost me at "no Gamecube support".
With the WiiU hitting the stores, I doubt anyone would opt to buy the Wii Mini over the WiiU. Collectors might, but I still feel that this was a bad career move. Nonetheless, they're at least thinking of the economy, so there's a good thing. For people who don't have internet connections, they can at least buy this without complaints for the right price. Otherwise, I myself wouldn't buy it.
