Nintendo Wii Mini

Nintendo Wii Mini Review

 

The Nintendo Wii Mini is an affordable video game console that lets you play some of the best motion-controlled games. It strips away unnecessary internet connectivity, since Nintendo closed the Wii's online servers, but it also does not play GameCube...

The Nintendo Wii Mini is small and lightweight and plays all Wii games.

You cannot download online games, since Nintendo turned off the Wii servers, and this version can't play GameCube discs.

The Wii Mini lets you play some of Nintendo's best games at a low price, but for an extra $200 you can play the same games and more on the Wii U.
