Yes, this is an old system but I love my Wii! Whenever my friends bring their kids over I always bring out the Wii to keep them entertained. It is perfect for the younger kid that has not discovered all the COD or GTA games. Plus, I love to play it because I always break a sweat playing Wii Sports.
OH!! Mario Cart is super fun to play! I play it all the time.
It should be noted that the Wii Mini will not play Gamecube games (doesn’t even have the ports for Gamecube controllers) and doesn’t have WiFi. It says that on the product page, but it’s worth pointing out again.
These support up to 4 of their bluetooth controllers (sold separately).Also, this is not a “single player game” machine… it’s an actual game console, there’s 100’s and 100’s of games for it available anywhere.
Mine lives in the garage of a friend’s house. It’s the permanent RockBand3 console for our “Wii Garage Band” LOL
I doubt the other Wii for sale here plays Gamecube games either. They removed that feature a few years ago. The biggest difference with the mini is it has no online whatsoever. That means no online play in the games that support it, no eshop downloads of virtual console games and no Netflix or Hulu plus.
Yes, the mini. It appears smaller, maybe it’s not. I don’t care about WiFi connectivity, I just want to play mariocart against one of the kids. Will it do that with the mini “kit”, or more controllers will have to be purchased?
Actually, if this is truly a vertically designed model, notice how the Wii logo is written, very well might be an old Wii with GameCube compatibility.
The real shocker, over $200 for a Wii? I can buy a refurb Wii U for $200 straight from Nintendo. Better really need GameCube compatibility to make this deal interesting. Then again, not hard to find a used Wii these days for much less.
Yes the white one can play them. However, this “deal” stinks. Wiis can be found in plentiful supply elsewhere. Heck, Gamestop sells the backwards compatible Wii for $90 with 5 free games. I got a Wii in the original box with all hookups on Craigslist with 2 controllers and nunchucks, 2 games, and 2 guitar hero guitars for $55.
