This fall, Nintendo is releasing a new Wii SKU, with a new look (no pics yet) and something missing, No gamecube support. It will not play Gamecube games or have the slots for controllers or memory cards. Does this mean there will be another price drop? Surly it's cheaper to make a wii without gamecube slots. Plus Nintendo needs the money and a cheaper wii could help. The "new" wii comes with wii party and wii sports and comes out in the UK in the fall, with no word on a US release yet. If it does come here, I'll be looking for the older gamecube friendly one.
update: here's the new look wii
