The Nintendo Wii gets a new look

No, I'm not talking about the WiiU.

Nintendo is giving the Wii a make-over and will be released in the UK this Christmas. The console will be bundled with a copy of Wii Party and Wii Sports. The console will be a white Wii with a slight redesign to sit horizontally rather than vertically. It has also been revealed that this new Wii will not have any GameCube support.

The removal of GameCube support may not be a big deal for most of you but I personally love the GameCube backwards compatibility of my Wii. I always appreciate it when games include support for the GameCube controller and I love me some GameCube action from time to time which is easier since I don't have to bust out my old GameCube everytime I wanna play some Melee or sail in Wind Waker.

As for the console lying down horizontally... didn't the original design already have rubber feet on the one side? Nintendo, sometimes I fail to understand you.
