This is What the Black Wii Box Looks Like

While the Nintendo DS comes in a myriad of colors, the Wii since its launch in 2006 has only come in white. That'll all soon change with the release of the black Wii in Japan on August 1.

In white the Wii looks family friendly and welcoming to everyone. In black it gains a certain menace that makes the machine look a lot more hardcore than it really is.

What do you think?

    Fake shortage? I think you're confusing Nintendo with Sony there.

    Like many of their products, I guess it'll soon be available in white, black, and also green, grey, clear, clear purple, clear blue and of course, banana yellow.

    How about anti-theft pink.

    Sexy Wii is sexy.

    And plenty hardcore if you're talking about actually being a gamer and enjoying yourself, rather than playing the "hardcore" Gears of War fare.

    By the second definition it means you're twelve years old in mind or body and insecure about having fun with primary colors.
