Black Wii Gets Release Date in Japan, No Word Yet for US

Lucky Japan Gets Its Hands on Sexy Black Wii August 1

Although I was all over the white gadget craze awhile back (and still kinda am), I gotta say, you can never go wrong with a sexy black gadget. Or in this case, a sexy black Wii console. And guess what, you guys totally agree. Finally getting a Japanese release date of August 1, the black Wii comes with the standard nunchuk, and a bit more mystery with the darker hue. Also, I think the glowing blue light looks amazing against the shiny black console.

Although I'm smitten, I don't know that I'd throw down for a whole new gaming console since it's essentially the same product, just in a different color. But I guess I should hold my tongue until they hit the states — you may just see me waiting in line like the gadget hound that I am.

I like this black Wii, very slick and more modern looking. Except I suppose if it got scratched it would show white, or if it collects dust easily it'd be harder to keep clean. Meh...I'm thinking about selling my white Wii for a black Xbox 360, though, I suppose I'd run into the same maintenance problems.

I dunno, the black just doesn't do it for me. I love my white Wii.
