Nintendo launch pointless £80 Wii Mini
Nintendo haven't released a decent console since the N64, and even that didn't capture the imagination like the SNES. And so, in a bid to stay in the market after everyone collectively shrugged at the Wii and Wii U, they've decided to go budget.
For £80, you will be able to get your hands on a Wii Mini from March 22nd. For your buck, you'll get a scaled-down console with a Wii Remote Plus and nunchuck.
What is a Wii Mini though and is it worth £80? Well, for starters, the exact same device costs around £60 overseas, so it seems a bit of a swizz from the off. Is it worth a punt if you're a gaming n00b? This new console doesn't connect to the internet (so no iPlayer or downloadable content from the Wii Store) and there's no games bundle.
For another £40, you'll be able to buy a proper Wii, which allows you connect to the internet and comes with a load of games. With the amount of packages you can buy you can have a fully functioning Wii and a bundle of other stuff, thereby making the Wii Mini look pretty useless.
