  1. @drinkingpony Instead of 'new' you can use 'hardware update' or 'revision'. Nintendo (and all other gaming console manufacturers) always made updates of their hardware to make it better (lower production costs, increase reliability...). Although the worst revisions were those of the original Wii, first revision had no gamecube support, and then the Wii Mini got rid off all internet features. For instance game controllers have the most revisions and they are all hidden. I've opened a dozen of PS2 controllers and only few pairs of controllers were from the same revision. Even the rather simple SNES controller has at least 3 different variants.
