$99 Wii Mini Coming This Month

Nintendo is planning to release a $99 version of the Wii console to the US market later this month. The Wii Mini has already gone on sale in Canada and the UK, and should make it to US stores before the end of November. Despite the misleading name, the Wii Mini is about the same size as the original Wii. However, it cannot connect to the Internet and lacks the SD card slot of its “bigger” brother. Hopefully this move can gain some holiday sales for Nintendo during the 2013 shopping season. They could certainly use them.
