lmao.

Seriously looks awesome though. God damn why did I have to buy a white one? Well if I didn't I would have missed out on all the Wii games up until now so I regret nothing. Spray paint here I come.    :P

They should've done this at launch...I don't have the money to buy another Wii...I'll be picking one of those sexy black wiimotes though.

looks smexy

#9 Posted by Seedofpower (3928 posts) -

I just relied this, how for the past 12 years, Nintendo just takes the all their consoles recolors and releases them. Without making any other changes.
N64
Hand held devices
Gamecube
Wii

By doing this for some reason it recreates a demand. Mind boggling!

#10 Posted by jNerd (2011 posts) -

When I end up buying a new Wii in a year (sold my old one) I might snag a black one. I don't know if I need a Wii for anything though, lol.

WE REPAINTIN, ITS GONNA BE THE BLACK-HOUSE NOW! TOMORROW EVERY COLOURED PERSON IS GONNA BE ABLE TO BUY AN ESCALADE AND START THEIR OWN RECORD LABEL WHOOOOOOooO GETTING KRUNK

#14 Posted by Mootalstrike (187 posts) -

If I bought a black Wii, my White Wii would be so lonely. :(

#15 Posted by MrPerfect (436 posts) -

I want a black Wii but I doubt I will ever get one, I think it would be pointless to sell my current Wii to get one. 

#16 Posted by Luke (1609 posts) -

DAMN, that looks so hawt!  I wish I had this! 

My white-ass Wii looks so shitty sitting next to my badass black PS3 and 360 Elite.

#17 Posted by Drebin_893 (2906 posts) -

Would my white Wii get shot in a drive-by by my black Wii?

#18 Posted by Xeiphyer (5601 posts) -
@Luke: Ugh same for me, Its so damn ugly sitting ontop of my elite 360. IHATE WHITE PEOPLE!! I mean.. consoles :) *IAMWHITESOITSOKJOKES* Not that anyone is offended.

Also that MH3 box and stuff looks dead sexy, Iwould be very tempted to buy that if I saw it on the shelf, I love Monster Hunter like its nobodys business. But MH3 looks way not as good as the PSP games. Less weapon types and online monthly fee. Sucky deal. Maybe if they have free online I'll get it, it does have underwater fighting and looks a lot nicer, and adding back online play makes it awesome. Only playing MHF2 when my friends were over sucked during the week. WESHALLSEE!

Curiously, I wonder how much I could get for my wii... It is soft modded haha.. not very hard =) Of course if this new wii cant be hacked then no thanks. I buy games like mario and zelda and harvest moon, but im not spending $60 on wii music. It was fun for about 15 minutes. Glad I gave that a download before bought it.
#19 Edited by Al3xand3r (7574 posts) -

You can always not play online so it's just like the PSP game then... Except with split screen multiplayer on top... It also actually looks far better and while there are less weapon types total (though it's not clear, gun lances may have been combined as a type with the lances rather than removed altogether for example), all the weapons have new abilities, have been rebalanced, some are more customisable (3 piece bowguns) and there's also the slash axe which can be used in 2 different modes. Of course, all the new areas, monsters and gear alone are worth it as well. The fee isn't confirmed for the West, the Monster Hunter home console (and PC) titles have always had a fee in Japan but have been free in the West so it remains to be seen what they do with this entry. I guess newer players wouldn't be aware of that but now you are. Monster Hunter 3 is the first evolution of the series since, well, 2. The PSP games are simply down-ports of the first two PS2 games, and with the online aspect removed. 3 adds more features than any other game before it, with things like the ecosystem feel, reworked stamina, torches for dark areas, underwater mechanics. If they've removed things, it's because they broke the balance in past titles, like the dual wielding swords which were completely overpowered. It doesn't take from the game, it fixes the game, and adds a ton of new shit on top, so to act like it's worse because it has less weapon types is quite stupid. Not to mention on the Wii you finally get decent camera control (whether you use the remote+nunchuck or the classic controller) so you can rotate it at will without needing to stop controlling your character's movement as on the PSP.

As for your piracy habits, yeah, we totally believe you only do it to try the games for 15 minutes and then see if you'll buy it or delete it, never play further or complete it then decide against paying for any stupid reason like it wasn't as good as your absolute favorite game in the genre... Lol.

A good move, I think this is the perfect time for releasing a black console, now that the production issues are out of the way.

I am  definitely getting some Yin to add to my Yang. I also want that new improved controller.


#21 Posted by AgentJ (8778 posts) -

Damn that thing is sexy. If i ever am forced to buy a japanese wii im definately getting the black one. I already have four wiimotes, but  might just buy a black one for the heck of it.

#22 Posted by choffy21 (1376 posts) -

#25 Posted by Meowayne (6084 posts) -

#26 Posted by Hairydutchman (1039 posts) -

Took them long enough.

The classic controller looks hot!

#27 Posted by Red (5994 posts) -

That is sexy, especially that new classic controller.

#28 Posted by ShadowKiller (894 posts) -

This really sucks considering if they made this at launch I wouldn't of ruined my white wii with stickers.

#29 Posted by Endogene (4741 posts) -

Wow even the condoms are black, I wonder how a white wii mote would look in it. (Inter racial FTW!)

#30 Posted by kitsune_conundrum (1202 posts) -

And Saint Attila raised the hand grenade up on high, saying, "O Lord, bless this thy hand grenade, that with it thou mayst blow thine enemies to tiny bits, in thy mercy." And the Lord did grin. And the people did feast upon the lambs and sloths, and carp and anchovies, and orangutans and breakfast cereals, and fruit-bats and large chu...

#31 Posted by PureRok (4235 posts) -

Oh God I want that Classic Controller Pro. It is so sexy... just look at the curves.

#32 Posted by Meowayne (6084 posts) -

Yes, but will it blend?

#33 Posted by addictedtopinescent (3645 posts) -

Wow

Nintendo just killed the 360 and the PS3 
xD 
I want that sooo fcking much, also your post remind me of Monster Hunter ! Thanks man 
#34 Posted by Linkyshinks (9880 posts) -

I want some black Motion Plus, and a packet of four of those black condoms also.

#35 Posted by get2sammyb (6412 posts) -

I want to kiss it all over.

#36 Edited by TheKidNixon (1564 posts) -

Sidenote: This probably means that Nintendo is seriously considering the next step beyond the Wii. They've always said that the sign of the end is when they start to release new colors for their consoles. Basically, that means indicators are trailing and they need a boost. New colors is the stop-gap until the new product is done with dev. Wii-HD team just got a memo.

#37 Edited by Al3xand3r (7574 posts) -

Sigh, yeah, The Wii, with its 50 million units sold, is dieing. Nintendo is worried. They need a new system and they need it NOW. This MEGATONFORJAPAN is totally not made because it will SELL LIKE HOT CAKES, it's made to make way for WiiHD,WII2,WIII, etc >_>

And the DSi which JUST launched is also dieing! It got a red color! Poor fools, those who bought it, by next year we'll have DSibo!

Hey man, this isn't a conspiracy theory, this is their confirmed past behavior. When Reggie has been asked in the past when the next Wii is coming, his response has always been "We haven't even released it in new colors yet." I'm not saying its coming anytime soon, but we do know there is a team developing WiiHD, and sales in Japan have been slagging slightly. Along with Monster Hunter, this will inject some life into the system. Not even saying "WII IS TOTAL F4!L!" Nintendo is making more money than I can even wrap my head around, but they're always looking to the future.
#39 Edited by Al3xand3r (7574 posts) -

"We haven't even released it in new colors yet" doesn't mean "we'll release WiiHD/2 as soon as we have Wii colors out"

Also, Reggie doesn't dictate when it happens. Every time he speaks, it's simply PR. He's been completely wrong on many occasions. It's very possibly he was unaware of the incoming black Wii (which is likely to stay Japan only) when he chose to make that statement to show it's far.

#40 Posted by zityz (2360 posts) -

*eye twitch* why the hell wouldnt they make those at launch! Well I know why, but id rather have a black console then a white one. Those Wii-a-fied Gamecube controllers looks real nice. Hope they come here cause I'd buy one for sure.

#41 Posted by Verdugo (2001 posts) -

Black Wii looks fucking nice.

I am surprised the remotes aren't much bigger on the Black Wii

(racial sterotypes FTW!)
#43 Posted by LiquidPrince (15902 posts) -

I'd buy it just because it's sexy.

#44 Posted by AltDimension (257 posts) -

They should have done a whole load of special editions of that with the 'Revolution' branding on it.

#45 Posted by Thordain (959 posts) -

Finally, I have always wanted one of those. Not gonna buy another Wii, but I will get one of those black wiimotes.

#46 Posted by FlamingHobo (4482 posts) -
I'm too use to seeing my Black Xbox Elite and Black PS3, and then there's my unique looking Wii.
If I bought this black Wii I'd feel like I was cheating myself.
#47 Posted by oldschool (7264 posts) -

I have my 2 Wii quota and as much as I would love a coloured one - not going to happen.  4 Wiimotes mean no new wiimotes either.

#48 Posted by Agnogenic_delete (1034 posts) -

That thing is sexy!

#49 Posted by Maxszy (2064 posts) -

As someone who doesn't own a Wii or really care about them too much, (sorry! Just not me) that thing looks fucking great! May not make me buy one, (especially if its only in  Japan :-P) but wow! Sleek!

#50 Posted by WilliamRLBaker (4777 posts) -
