The Wii loses backward compatibility and new look

Nintendo has removed the backwards compatibility the Wii. The new console, which has undergone a slight re-design, will be released at Christmas and will not be able to read GameCube games. The price of this "new" console has not been announced, but will be sold bundled with two Wii Party and Wii Sports collection, in addition to a Wiimote and Nunchuk Plus.

The look, apparently the same as the previous year, was now more rounded and is similar to that seen in the Wii at E3 U presented. It seems that the redesign encourages horizontal rather than vertical position.
