This is not a Wii U. Doesn't work with Wii U games.

Posting this in an attempt to stop any DS/3DS style confusion.

Basically, there are currently three Wii consoles all doing the rounds.

The original Wii - Nintendo's last generation console, released 2006. It has a great game library, but the system is now obsolete - they are no longer making new games for this.

Wii Mini - This is what you see here. A "budget" version of the original Wii with cut-down features, including no internet access. IMO, this is probably the WORST of all three options.

Wii U - Nintendo's most recent console, released 2012, featuring HD graphics and the new tablet-style controller. Unlike the original Wii and the Wii Mini, games developers will continue to support this for many years to come.

If someone's asking for a "new Wii", it's probably a "Wii U" they want.

Nintendo Wii U 32GB Premium Pack - Black
Nintendo Wii U 8GB Basic Pack - White

The new, "Wii U" games WILL NOT WORK on the Wii or the Wii Mini.

Hope this helps.

Noo Wii U is a Wii successor.

The Wii U doesn't count as a 'Wii console', and you missed the Wii Family Edition, which doesn't have Gamecube support/

You say that unlike the Wii, developers will continue to support the Wii U. Except that the Wii took the industry by storm when it first came and and was out of stock everywhere for ages. It wasn't very successful against the Xbox 360 and PS3, but it did have a great library of good titles. The Wii U is already failing. Sales figures are abysmal. So insinuating that the Wii U is more successful than the Wii was is completely incorrect.

Nintendo is basically discounting the original Wii. Meaning that they won't be handing out any more licenses to software developers so they can shift attention to the Wii U.
