The Wii...Mini? That's right, not the Apple iPad Mini, not the Nintendo Wii U, but the Nintendo Wii Mini, a slightly smaller, slightly redder version of America's favorite video game console.» Read Article
It's already looking like Nintendo's Wii U may struggle to compete with next-generation alternatives from Sony and Microsoft - but not why you might think.
Nintendo's new next-generation console, the Wii U launches today. We've got an early look at the console, and came away with a few expectations and concerns.
