Nintendo Wii Mini bound for Canada. Why not the US?(Read article summary)
Nintendo is launching a Wii Mini device in Canada – but it's not clear when or if the device will hit the US.
The Wii Mini, which will sell for $99, is powered by the same aging innards as the current Wii console. But the device gets a compact chassis about the size of an external hard drive, a killer red and black paint job, and a matching red controller and nunchuk.
The Mini ships on Dec. 7.
Now on to the big question: Why isn't Nintendo launching a Wii Mini south of the border, too? Nintendo, for its part, has said only that "no information is available about its potential availability in other territories in the future," which may mean we're not ever going to see a Wii Mini in the US.
