Nintendo UK has just revealed a Wii bundle which incudes the new Wii configuration.
The bundle will include a new configuration Black Wii with a black steering wheel and a copy of Mario Kart Wii. The bundle goes on sale this Friday, November 18th, though no price has been given.
“This new Wii bundle not only offers great value to fans, but introduces a Wii console with a slightly altered configuration, which now stands horizontally, rather than vertically.”
The new Wii design has a disadvantage over the old Wii design in that it “is no longer compatible with Nintendo GameCube software and accessories.”
Bit of a strange decision by Nintendo to take away a console function, in this case backwards compatibility, rather than add to it.
