A “wii” Wii

Nintendo has announced a new slime version of the Wii releasing in Europe this holiday.  This new slim Wii is a smaller design that is more suited to lay horizontal.  The package comes bundled with Wii Sports and Wii Party.  The only major sacrifice for the Wii going slim is the loss of Gamecube backwards compatibility.  The system will not support any Gamecube software or controllers.  Nintendo has only announced this system for Europe but you can expect this to come to North American shores eventually.

I would like to say that I came out of the womb with a controller in hand, but it wasn't until the age of 3 that I would receive my first console, the Atari 2600. From that moment on, games have not only a hobby of mine but a passion as well. Owning the majority of gaming platforms out there, I try to play as many different types of games that I can.
