The lights are on
The Wii has served its masters at Nintendo well – the console leads the current hardware generation in sales. Perhaps striving for that last sales push, there's a rumor that a newly designed Wii is coming out soon.
Nintendo World Report says it has obtained info from a major retailer that states the new Wii will come out on December 7, complete with a sensor bar, nunchuk, and Wii Remote with Wii Motion Plus and a jacket. No word on the price of this possible bundle.
If true, this would be the second redesign for the console.

Let it go, Nintendo... Let it go... I luv my Wii alot but let it go...
My fingers are crossed that there will be a commercial for it starring Verne Troyer.
I really doubt it.... Wii is already redesigned by removing compatibility woth GameCube and sells for cheaper. I've seen it sell for $80 last week, so I see no use for this rumored move.
They should just make a machine that's basically a tablet but for Wii games. You insert the discs on the side and charge it up to take anywhere. Portable Wii. Sure the screen would be too small for lots of people to play them, but this would be for like car or plane trips.
I guess they're just trying to milk the last bit from the Wii to move a lot of the software off the shelves. I don't blame them, but really not sure if designing/producing a Mini Wii would be financially viable.
