Nintendo Wii Debuts With New Black Finish, U.S. Market Gets Left Out

The Nintendo Wii is getting a facelift, but this time its not a new WiiMote or a new “must have” accessory. Instead Nintendo is releasing their ultra popular, motion sensitive gaming system in a new color; black.

The Black version of the Wii will unfortunately not be available in the United States, although grey market versions of the device have been surfacing at the premium price of $333. Why that price? We have no idea, it seems a little in terms of a price point.

Other than the black glossy finish, the device offers the exact same specs as found on the white edition of the gaming console. Although the new color may better suit many users electronics which typically are offered in darker colors. [tipped via SlipperyBrick]
