Those hoping to see a new attractive girl-next-door who has been appointed to market the Wii in Europe will be sorely disappointed.  Nintendo has in fact announced a brand new “value Wii” for the European market.

While no price has been given yet, the new model loses its GameCube backwards compatibility (games and accessories) and its ability to stand vertically…

According to Eurogamer, Nintendo is phasing out the current Wii for this new model, which will be out before Christmas and be bundled with a Wii Remote Plus, Nunchuk, Wii Party and Wii Sports.

“In Europe we will focus on the new Wii Bundle/s going forward,” Nintendo confirmed.
