Here's a strange thing. Nintendo is launching a smaller, less costly version of the Wii for the Christmas holidays but it cannot play GameCube games or access the internet. Weirder still, it will only be available in Canada, at least for now. Since when do we get exclusives like this? I can kind of see parents buying this to hook up in the kids' bedroom, attached to one of those Disney Princess TVs from Toys R Us. I don't know why else you'd want a crippled Wii console, but I love the boxy look. Yup, I'm one of those freaks that likes it when their toys look like toys. Forget you, Apple.
I guess this could work at the cottage. I wonder if it has collectible potential.
