So I got a Wii mini yesterday. I’ve not had a chance to use it (I’m not sure I will) but I did manage to take a few snaps to compare it with the old Wii and the Wii U.
We’ve seen quite a few comparisons with the original Wii and we can see it above with my Wii. It’s practically the same size and does less. Sure, it’s lighter, and quite considerably so, but that’s because it has less in it. Let’s look at what it’s missing:
- No Gamecube compatibility
- No SD card slot (internal storage of an undisclosed amount)
- Only one USB port
- No internet connection at all, not even wired which means no Wii Ware or Virtual Console games, or Wii Speak compatibility
- Component cable compatibility is gone (which means no 480p)
So why did they call it the Wii mini? I think it’s because they intend it to stand along side the Wii U, and not the original Wii. When you compare it to the Wii U, it is a lot smaller and lighter. The lack of internet means it’s practically a guaranteed safe gaming experience and more suited to the paranoid parents who themselves have no technical or reading abilities to learn how to set parental controls.
The colour scheme is amazing and in pictures it doesn’t looks so bad. But when you hold it you can see that the plastic on this thing feels and looks cheap. It’s that mottled texture that really drags it down. The flip-top disc tray also feels flimsy.
Having said all that, I do like this. It’s weird and quirky because it makes no sense. And I got another red Wii Remote Plus and Nunchuk (which would set you back about £45-£55 anyway) with quirky console for a little extra.
