Nintendo Wii Mini Leaked

Looks like Nintendo had one more trick up its sleeve for this Holiday season (other than the new Wii U). Best Buy Canada seems to have jumped the gun and revealed there's a new Wii coming... and it comes in bright sexy red: the new Wii Mini.

It will be available on December 7th and it will cost $99. (Including a red Wiimote Plus - and there's also a red Nunchuck, though I don't know if it's included or you have to buy it separately.)

But, that's not all. Unfortunately, the "mini" doesn't refer only to its price. Besides the lack of GameCube discs support - something that the regular Wii as also lost since its inception - this mini Wii also lack internet connectivity. Meaning, although you'll be able to play your regular Wii games, you won't have access to any online services such as leaderboards and online multiplayer.

Depending on the type of games you play... you might be better off scraping the extra $50 (or even less) and getting the "full" Wii model - though I can understand there can be a huge market for people just wanting to enjoy the great collection of Wii games for the least amount of money possible.

Anyway... that's for Canada only... at least for now.
