Is this the edition shorn of GameCube functionality?
It's likely, but with the Gamecube being so cheap (and you probably have one either way) the only point of playing its games on the Wii is that the Gamecube component cables are crazy expensive and as such, you can't do that on an original. And you probably lose the controller ports, too.
Is this the only model that'll be produced on right now?
