That thing looks good in black.  But then again, to me, any electronic device does. Buuuut... for an extra $100 I can get a PS3 and enjoy Gran Turismo 5 (when it comes out).  I'm not a casual gamer, and so games with crappy graphics are not my idea of "modern gaming", however, the Wii does give you exercise, which I do need!  Why is this console JUST coming out in black? Why didn't they do this a long time ago? No, I won't be buying one. Maybe for $99, but not for 2/3 the price of a PS3.  I don't need to spend $200 to get excercise when I can go run around the block for free. I still love you, Nintendo!

For the kind of device it is, a casual gaming platform, it is overpriced. It should cost $150 and come with 2 remotes, and some games.

lol What kind of manufacturing deal do you think Nintendo has? Yes, I'm sure it's that simple.

Sony does it, Microsoft does it. For some reason nintendo simply does not. We all know that Miyamoto is awesome, but that is no excuse.

If nintendo doesn't get serious about software they don't make (and they should not dare to pretend that they somehow are), then the wii just may be the last console they ever produce. Nintendo will continue to have a pathetic attach rate until at least 15 out of the top 20 wii games are not made by nintendo.

 

You can have your recession. I'm not participating.

the reason nintendo doesn't is simply the fact that no one but nintendo wants to spend all the time required to produce a wii game that actually uses the motion sensing systems (the only thing that really separates a wii from a gamecube).  As a result, it is a well known fact that ALL of the good wii games are made by nintendo.

Nintendo, out of business? You do know what kinds of ridiculous money they're making, right? They don't NEED other games, because most of their customers don't buy them.

Not selling as well as they'd like? Really?

ok, that adds up now. I was at Target and saw they had for sale a black Wii remote...I was like "why is it black?"

I remember when I was in Japan over the summer, they had a special bundle that came with Wii Motion Plus, but with the game separated.

 

I wanted to get it, but unfortunately, even though I can fully understand Japanese,  it wouldn't read English games and I already had a white one already...
