The $99 dollar Wii Mini console will finally be in U.S. retail outlets in just 2-3 weeks, at best. Last fall the Wii Mini became available in Canadian stores, and in March of this year in the United Kingdom.

Nintendo is busy working on expanding their operations.

Kickstarter’s winner Ouya as well as Shield and Nvidia, most recently, make up the new flank of game-making company competitors.
