Wii Gets A Redesign, Easier To Sit In Corner Forgotten

Quote:
This Christmas, the Nintendo Wii is a getting a slight, wait for it, Wii-design. I mean redesign!

According to The Official Nintendo Magazine, the tweaked Wii will be released in the UK this holiday season (no word about a US release).

The change is that this Wii is designed to lay flat and has a slighted refigured design. The original Wii was supposed to sit vertically.

The redesigned console comes packed with a Wii Remote Plus, a Nunchuk and, according to this photo from Eurogamer, copies of Wii Sports and Wii Party.

Expect more details like pricing and non-UK availability.

Question, though ó outside of a few first-party AAA titles, how often do you play your Wii when friends arenít around challenging you to Wii Sports? Just curious.

lol, so they just flopped the whole thing on it's side basically. They should spend more time and money get good games made for the 3DS so that actually sells instead.

The other consoles have done it why not the Wii.

I have an Xbox and a PS3 and Xbox never gets touched either apart from first party AAA titles - Oh wait it has none.

I have not got a Wii as of yet so i will hold back and buy this so i can load up on the AAA games and get them played.

Huh, that's kinda funny. I can sit mine on its side and make it look like that. It still won't get played more.

I play most of my wii games on PC now. The emulation is so good with a decent PC you can run most games without glitches at a higher res with AA and texture filters.

While it still doesn't look amazing due to the overall low quality textures and models it's a vast improvement over what the actual Wii console can do. My eyes certainly ache less.

Honestly I would much rather they spend their time on the WiiU...or 2. Make that one so it can lay on it's side taking up room I don't have. I like the verticle design.
