If colour has been the reason stopping you picking up a Wii, then you'll possibly be excited to hear that Nintendo is poised to released the sleek black Wii console very shortly across the UK and Europe.

The black Wii will be available to buy in UK and Republic of Ireland from 6 November and mainland Europe on 20 November, and will come as a “Limited Edition” bundled with a Wii Remote, Wii MotionPlus and Nunchuk – all in black – as well as the new Wii Sports Resort game and the original Wii Sports. The Wii Sports Resort black bundle will offer a total of 15 different sports to enjoy.

Also launching in Europe as part of the black range of accessories will be the new black Classic Controller Pro – an enhanced version of the Classic Controller. Additional black Wii Remote controllers, Wii MotionPlus accessories and Nunchuk controllers will also be available to purchase separately across Europe from November 20th onwards.

Wii Sports Resort, which is bundled with the new black Wii, has already sold well over one million copies across Europe, and brings an entire island, along with 12 sports, to your living room. Each of the sports featured in Wii Sports Resort is modelled with increased accuracy thanks to the Wii MotionPlus accessory, included with this new package.

We're still waiting to hear the recommended retail price for the UK.

I've had a black Wii for aaaaaaaages :p

I just never bother playing it!! :D

It doesn't matter if it's black or white…. just that there are no really good titles on it :)
soo, are they going to release black Mario as well? otherwise it just doesn't seem worth it.
