Wii Mini Confirmed as a Canada Exclusive
Published on Tuesday, 27 November 2012 04:08
Remember that rumor from yesterday regarding the upcoming Wii slim model? Rumor no more, it’s now confirmed that the Wii Mini will be arriving on December 7 as an exclusive to Canada. If anyone in Canada doesn’t want to pay a large sum of money to get a Wii U, this might be your answer. The console is black and red and comes with a red nunchuk and Wii Remote Plus. One thing to keep in mind here is that this new model doesn’t have the ability to connect to the internet or play GameCube games, so if you’re the type to always play online, perhaps this isn’t for you. If you don’t care about internet access, good for you- you can pick up the console for $100. Rod Bertram of Nintendo of Canada states:
“There are games in the Wii library for every type of player. Wii Mini is a great gift for the holidays that brings everyone in the family together to play. Wii Mini has a mini price, but it’s all about big fun.”
Haven’t gotten your hands on the freshly released Wii U? Never played the Wii? Console collector wanting to get every model every created? Think it just looks cool? Well, Canadian friends (sorry everyone else), you only have to wait one and a half more weeks!
Here we are. The next generation of consoles is among us and it is finally time to start thinking about finally unplugging our beloved current-gen systems. Could there be a better swan song for one of these systems than taking a trip back to Rapture?
Let’s face it: buying digital games is significantly more convenient than buying from a retail store. You don’t have to put pants on to go outside, nor do you even have to go outside. You don’t have to drive to the store, nor do you have to wait in line at said store. On top of that, the price is generally the exact same, if not more for the physical version.
Let’s face it: staying in just your underwear, FTW.
Despite the overwhelming advantages of buying digital, I still can’t fully commit to it. While I understand I am more in the minority with each day that goes by, I truly believe I have a legitimate case about buying physical copies of games.
In some sort of cosmic twist, I have seen the future. No, I didn’t find out where/when/why I’ll die, nor did I even find out what I’ll have for breakfast tomorrow (I hope it’s pancakes). But I assure you, I have seen the future.
The future of video games that is. I recently got to test out Morpheus - uh, I mean PlayStation VR - Sony’s answer to the ever-growing interest in virtual reality. Although the headset is currently far from completion, it’s also far from shotty.
Whether it’s a rainy day, a sickness, or some other reason not to go outside and enjoy the beautiful summer air, video games are the perfect way to spend your time - that is, if you can find a game to play. In terms of releases, summer generally isn’t the most fruitful of seasons, and this year is no different. So what games could/should you be sinking your teeth into during the dog days?
