Redundant, but awesome. This is sort of what I envisioned the next console after the Gamecube would look like, way back when.

A Person My fav part is definitely the look and feel of it. I just freaking ITCH to press that button and have the top of it pop up. ITCH!!!! Aaaahhh I can't even look at it.

So only us Canucks get it? Interesting.

Kind of a shame it removes the wi-fi. It does look pretty nice though.

I too thought it looked amazing, until I saw that it doesn't include wireless... I guess it's an O.K. little device. But I only see this as something uninformed parents would buy thinking it's what their child calls "The new Wii".

For the casual consumer that's focused mainly on price and backcatalog games this seems perfect, though the removal of online things like Netflix seems strange.

I personally love the look of this little thing, the pop up tray, and the fact that it is pure and simple video game console of old, probably the last we'll ever see.

Exactly what I thought. I would have bought this little thing for taking Mario Kart and stuff with me on the go. But what fun is Mario Kart without online?

I feel like this will be a nice collectible item in the future if this is only sold in Canada, considering the low amount of them (Unless of course it sells like hotcakes and over a million are created).

The idea behind it is extremely stupid, especially with the WiiU out and will just further confuse the average consumer in Canada but dat design. That's what the WiiU should have looked like.

I like that its a throw-back to the consoles of old but it seems really pointless to me. The Wii has an ethernet adapter but by then you might as well get a regular one, I guess it'd be ok for traveling or something.

They should have at least gave it an ethernet port for online gameplay. Im sure lots of the xbox and ps3 people will buy it to play games like mario kart. super smash bros, and other games available only on the wii. While I was reading this I was thinking of Sohinky from from smosh games and how this would be perfect for him.

But it does look awesome.
