Nintendo Announces Slim Line Wii Console

There is an awful lot happening at the Gamescon event in Hamburg, Germany, so it is easy to over look certain things, but when Nintendo talk about the all new Wii, naturally we are thinking about the Wii U, which is due for release sometime next year.

However, no, this announcement has nothing to with the new Wii U, rather it is the new old Wii that has been slimmed down and now lays flat instead of upright. According to Nintendo, they will be putting together some interesting packages for the Christmas season, which no doubt will include games and accessories.

However, the company have not indicated any prices or details of the packages yet.
