Customer Review

on December 26, 2011
Don't buy this Wii. You're getting screwed if you do. Normally, the Wii is designed to support 4 GameCube controllers, as well as GameCube memory cards, GameCube games and other GameCube accessories. I have a GameCube and it would have been extremely convenient to be able to unhook it. It's pretty bad I have to keep both systems and connect/disconnect them depending on which I want to play because for some reason Nintendo decided to leave out the backward compatibility on this Wii. What happens when my GameCube stops working? I'll either have to buy another GameCube, or different Wii.

You get what you pay for folks. If you skimp on price, you get half the quality. Wouldn't surprise me if it stops working in a month due to cheap internal parts as well. "Limited Edition" means "Cheap Edition". Just because something is "Limited" doesn't mean it's "better". It's probably "Limited" because only a limited number of people will want it. And the ones that DO want it don't realize that they are getting screwed.

You don't get a game with this one either. Nothing. Not even a demo or the lame bowling sports junk disc that the other Wiis come with. You get nothing. So next to the $99 you pay for this, you STILL have to go out and spend 40 bucks on a game so whether you buy a Wii that includes a game, or this one, you are still spending $140. Only difference is, you don't get the Gamecube support. Don't waste your money on this one folks. Later on down the road, you're going to want the extra features and backward compatibility.
