Nintendo says that its new "streamlined" Wii will come in a bundle with Wii Party and Wii Sports. Consumers will also find a Wii Remote Plus and Nunchuk. The company announced the bundle in Europe today, saying it will be made available to customers in October.

According to a statement from the game company, the Wii's new look is designed to make the console sit horizontally, rather than vertically. Nintendo didn't say exactly how it accomplished the feat, but the company's decision to do so is rather surprising, since the current Wii console can be placed both vertically and horizontally, and still allow users to play games. However, Nintendo has largely promoted the current version as a console that stands vertically for those who want to save space in their entertainment centers
