The Wii mini will be available starting mid-November at a a suggested retail price of only $99.99, bundled with the Mario Kart Wii game and a red Wii Remote Plus controller and a red Nunchuk controller.

Wii mini is a redesigned version of the extremely successful 2006 console that claims a library of more than 1,300 games. It is matte black with a red border.

"Wii mini offers the same fun experience as Wii, which has been enjoyed by millions of people around the world," said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America's executive vice president of Sales & Marketing.

"And it comes packaged with Mario Kart Wii, a multiplayer Mario racing game that is one of the best-selling Wii games. At such a great price, it is an extraordinary value for shoppers this holiday season."

$50 too high imo; no network connection, can't connect USB drive to it, no point in modding. No value at all.

$100 isn't too high for such a successful console, in my opinion. It's exactly the same price as an Ouya, for example, but with better graphics and fewer bugs.
