    If you looking for an new, but original Wii design with all those Gamecube ports, slots and compatible disc support, have no fear we got the details on what bundle deal to shop for this holiday season

    So remember if you want Gamecube, grab Mario Kart, if you want newer improved technology (hehe), grab Super Mario Bros.

      How is this a loophole? It's just Nintendo selling off left over stock of Wii's with Gamecube support still built in. When you say 'loophole' I expect it to be a hack on the new console to allow Gamecube games to run.

      This is the first time I'm hearing of the Wii losing GC functionality. WHAT THE HELL NINTENDO!!!

      It's not like you're cutting the price or anything! The Wii is already dirt-cheap to make, so why make it cheaper if it means lost functionality? This is bull.

      the new wii family console has dropped its gamecube support because its built on the wii bc chips for the wii u, its out in europe but wasnt supposed to be coming to the usa, its designed to be much cheaper so expect it to sell for $99/£99/€99 by the xmas shopping season.

      remember the wii u has no gc support (although i'd bet it will have gc on its virtual console) so this is just getting people ready, on the bright side nintendo is the last company to drop last gen bc, although the 360 still has some legacy support its no longer updated.

      No loophole at all.
      It was known that the console will sell along side the regular console back when it was announced.
      It's just like how they're still going to produce the PSP 3000 after the cheapo version is out.
      It's also like how they're still producing the DSi when the 3DS is out.
      Hell, they're still selling DS lites ffs.

      Not news, not important.
