New information is trickling out about Nintendo’s non-update to its
formerly barely next-gen, soon to be stone age-gen console. Sure, it’s
reportedly slightly slimmer and it has a newfound fondness for the
horizontal plane, but apparently it’s losing something fairly important
in the process: GameCube compatibility.
Aside from that, a Nintendo rep told the
company ”does not currently have any plans” to bring the console to the
US, much like Sony did with its just-announced "el cheapo” flavour of
WiFi-less PSP. We’re not entirely sure when Europe became the dumping
ground for gimped cut-rate consumer electronics, but we think most
Europeans would much rather have the proper ones for a sane price, thank
you very much.
