    Personally, I think that it's a bad idea to bundle it with a game that uses online functionality, given that the Wii Mini's online features are taken away. Why not an offline-only game like New Super Mario Bros. Wii?

    Just because a game has online play doesn't mean it's bad offline.
    With most Wii games such as Mario Kart Wii, online is included as a bonus, not a core feature.

    It lacks Wi-Fi, but if I recall, you can connect an ethernet cable onto your Wii.

    Mario Kart is also a better party game and considering they are likely releasing this for the Christmas rush.....

    so if it can connect with an Ethernet cable or other then....it DOES have web connectivity.
    Its going to be the doom of the thing if people keep going around saying that you cannot get online with it, when in fact you can.

    It is stated to lack all internet functionality. I've clarified this in the article.

    According to the official site it doesn't seem to support SD cards
    And it apparently doesn't have Internet (doesn't have ticks beside downloadable games and Internet Browser), but I do wonder if they're overlooking the USB Ethernet Adapter when they put that up.
    The press page says it doesn't have Internet but again, they could just be overlooking the Adapter

    I thought Super Mario Bros. was a single-player game.

    Hence the statement "Mario Kart Wii is a better party game" >_>

    Ah well, moving on.
