With the Wii U announced the next step would be to.. announce a new Wii model? What?
Nintendo told Eurogamer that they will discontinue the original Wii in favor of a smaller version that will come packed together with Wii Sports and Wii Party. In order to make it slimmer, the GameCube support has been dropped from the new Wii.
Honestly, I don’t know what they are thinking with this one. The Wii is pretty damn slim and small already and it seems incredibly weird to me to do this now, as the Wii U is around the corner. Does dropped GameCube Support also mean dropped Gamecube controller support?
I just can’t see this being a good idea, but what do I know?
