Nintendo Wii to Come in Black This Summer

Which Is Cooler: The Black Wii or the White Wii?

After declaring white to be the in vogue color for gadgets, I may have to eat my words. After being crisp white for two years, the Wii is going to debut this Summer in black.

The bad news? It's not coming to the US quite yet — the new colors will first only be available in Japan. That's a bummer, but then, anticipating something is always half the fun.

Let's talk about the more important implications of these colors: It's black, baby! I've just gotten used to lightening up my media center, and now we're heading back to deep, mysterious noir? I'm not saying I can't get behind it, it's just an adjustment.

So tell me, when it comes to gadgets — particularly this new Wii — do you prefer them to be in clean, Apple-esque white, or sleek, chic black?

Black reminds me too much of the Playstation and such ... white was more memorable

I skin all of my consoles anyway, so... But I like the white better. Wish they released white PS3s here like they did in Japan...

I don't like white on any of my consoles. I am dying to get an elite Xbox 360. I can't stand the white. It just is too, I don't know. I think the black looks so much more sleek and clean. And, I always get a lot of dust, even though I clean it nearly everyday. The black would conceal it. I think personally it just looks better. Why do you think my laptop is black? <<<<<<< hahaha

Gah! That's industrial looking! @_@ I think I like the white better. Black just looks like "Ooh...I'm trying to be the PS3!"

I like the white so much better. :) I don't know why, it's just much more appealing to me.

All of our electronics are white, except for the PS3. I tend to love white more.

The white wii seems more modern and cooler to me but it's a matter of opinion I suppose. I have the white wii and it's a sore thumb among my other electronics, so I suppose the black wii is better for the sake of fitting in and not looking extremely out of place.

The blue light looks better against the black.
