$20-30 more for a full featured Wii. I think Walmart had the full featured one for $89 on BF. When I saw the no internet, I thought this was stupid. How are you going to buy all the classic games from the Nintendo Store. This is one of the best features of the normal Wii.

I disagree in part with you. The Wii is not a casual only console. I just bought Metroid Other M, Sin and punishment, No more heroes 1 and 2, Metroid Trilogy, The Last story and one or 2 other games... There is some really impressive hardcore titles.
If that thing is not region coded, I will jump on it... but I know it will.
Ouch, this is an extremely tough buy considering the no Wi-fi and online game support + Nintendo already announced it would not be developing anymore Wii games so this is just a disrespectful product for the consumer.
No internet?? That just defeats the purpose of a Netflix / Hulu appliance. Wait, you mean there's games on the Wii?
(disclaimer: that was a sarcastic comment. There are many good games on this console as I own a handful myself including Twilight Princess, Kirby's Epic Yarn, Mario Galaxy 1 & 2, Williams Pinball Collection, New SMB for Wii)
[citation][nom]internetlad[/nom]TBH, rather just get a used Wii. Sure, GCN is dirt cheap by now, but the extra wires and clutter are a pain.[/citation]
To be honest, I'd rather just use Dolphin. While configuring the game is a pain, it's all worth it in the end when you play in sweet HD with anti-aliasing, per-pixel lighting and anisotropic filtering... unless the emulator has bugs emulating that game.
