Nintendo Wii Mini Leaks via Best Buy Canada Website
November 27th, 2012
If someone on your Christmas list is interested in the Nintendo Wii, you might want to hold off purchasing for a few more weeks. A new “mini” version of the Nintendo Wii console has leaked via the Best Buy Canada website home page. There are no hard details on the console and only a small image on the sites homepage.
That little image shows a red Nintendo Wii Mini game console along with the date December 7, 2012 for launch. It looks like the square console is roughly the length of a Nintendo Wii remote on each side, and the version shown has a black case with red trim. The home page says you can pre-order the console now, but if you click the link it goes to a generic list of Nintendo Wii hardware and accessories. The Nintendo Wii Mini was nowhere to be found.
It really wouldn’t be a surprise to see Nintendo shrink down the original Wii console in an attempt to get people to buy a second console to replace the original, as well as to decrease manufacturing costs, a practice more commonly seen from Sony with their PlayStation line.
