But I don't know what Nintendo was thinking. The Wii itself isn't even selling (probably due to the PS3 and 360 competition), so what will stripping away its features do? I personally won't buy it, because (1) I already have one lol, and (2) If I didn't already have one, I'd still buy the full-size Wii because of all the essential features. I wouldn't think there are too many strictly casual gamers on the Wii console that would imply they need such a puny console like this.
The fact that Nintendo's new console is the Wii-U yet they extended their old, nearly obsolete console bewilders me. It's like if Nintendo released a new type of GBC as they released the GBA. (???????!!)
