Ohh! Black! That would be perfect for an old Goth like me!

I was chocked when I read that the Kuro Wii hasn't been released in the US.
 
Anyway, I like the milky Wii better.

It's funny, a different colored Wii was pretty much all I needed at one time to make me want to get the system. For some reason I just don't like the white.
 
I've found that I really don't care about getting a Wii these days, though.

I prefer to refer to it as the GiantBomb color.

It's OK, but you will be skiping some of the best, most unique games ever released.

I just got mine today - Wiis in Australia had a $100 price drop so I couldn't resist. It sure is prett-ee.

Too bad it doesn't come with the classic controller pro.

Too bad they didn't release the black version at launch. I'm not gonna buy another one just because of the color.

Exactly.  I have 2 and as much as I like the colour black, it doesn't play the games any different.  If they made some really nice promotional ones, like the Pokemon N64 system, then I could be swayed.

Must not buy....I'm having a hard enough time resisting the DSi XL...

I'm tempted to buy one, then I remember there is only one game I'd want to play on it. So I don't think it's worth it.

Come on, you know there are more than one, especially with many at a good bargain price.   I bought a 360 when there was only one game worth playing on it, and then bought another 40 games cheap.

I'm not trying to be a dick. I just honestly can't think of more then one game I want to play on it.

I have a Wii, and truthfully, i can't think of 1 game i want to play on it. Well, i can think of games i want to play, that i have sitting right behind me, but not enough to warrant me putting them in or turning on the Wii. 
 
I really wanted a black Wii, why oh why didn't you release it when i got one nintendo? On the note of colours, i also don't quite like the DSi XL colours. Don't like bronze, and the burgandy has too much burgandy. Nintendo just doesn't understand me...

Eternal Sonata was the only game I wanted on the 360.  I bought more games because they were cheap and worth a try, but my 360 hardly gets switched on.  I kind of forced myself to play Fable II to see if it was better than the first, and I am left wondering, when does it get interesting.  Nothing so far has anywhere near as enjoyable as Eternal Sonata, but I still get fun from it.
 
So I do get what you mean and I didn't think you were being a dick - your history doesn't show that.  I just think if you get a Wii and the one game you want, you may be surprised how many more games you will buy and enjoy.

@oldschool:  Well, as side note, I love my DS to death, but the Wii lacks the kind of games that would draw me in I think. I'm sure if I got it, I would end up buying games for it, but that's because hey, I have it, maybe I should use it. If it had something like Professor Layton, or a actual Wii version of Phoenix Wright I would have picked up a Wii without a second thought. I just really don't like Mario and stuff like that (shocker, I know).
 
The one game I'm talking about that I do want to try is that 2D game that was created by the same people who made Odin Sphere, by the way. I can't quite remember the name.

I think that would be Murumasa: The Demon Blade.  It is indeed an excellent game if that is what you refer to.  
 
Shock, horror as well LQ, I am not the wprld's biggest Mario fan either.  Sure I love Smash Bros, Kart and various sport games (football and tennis), but Mario's "best" stuff is platformers and I am a strategy (mainly TBS, but also RTS) and RPG fan first and second.  I haven't finished Galaxy and Galaxy 2 isn't a first day order for me.  The most fun I have had on the Wii has been Fire Emblem (SRPG) and as a shock to me, House of Dead: Overkill.  Plus, anything to do with Harvest Moon and Animal Crossing is going to make me happy.  I am not even that big a fan of Metroid.  I want to play Sakura Wars, FFCC, Shiren the Wanderer, Phantom Brave and Fragile more than anything of those I have yet to pick up.  In the end, all systems have their place and we buy what we can afford and justify to ourselves.  Nothing wrong with that.
