Eurogamer is reporting that the Nintendo Wii is about to get aÂ face liftÂ this holiday season. In what is most likely a cost cutting measure, the new Wii will no longer have Gamecube support and will not have ports for Gamecube controllers and memory cards. The redesigned Wii will be designed to lay flat as apposed to standing up straight (which is already possible with the current Wii) and will include Wii Sports and Wii Play.
No word on a release date for the
downgraded updated console orÂ whetherÂ it will release outside of Europe. Expect more details about pricing and when the bundle will beÂ availableÂ for purchase in the coming weeks.
