But would you lose all your wii shop games that were purchased on the old wii.


Your wii shop games are tied to your my nintendo account, and not the console. So it would be fine actually.

Umm... nope. The only way to get your wii shop games on another wii is to send the wii in for repair when it's broken, and get a replacement, to which they will transfer your stuff if you ask, and which certainly won't be black unless the original one was the same color. In Europe they have a deal where you can send in two Wii consoles and have them transfer everything over, but as far as I know this isn't available in the US. Plus, that is just nuts. Nintendo needs to put out a transfer kit or *something*, but there is no sign of that. If buy a new Wii, kiss your Wii shop purchases good bye. Same with the DSi.

I actually sold my wii in the past because I was short for cash. I later bought it again, and I was able to redownload all my games again. I did this in the US, so maybe it's something they phased out (I did this in early 2007).

If its the same Wii that'd work, but was it a different Wii you bought back?

Mine shipped out today, so I'd say there's a good chance of that. I was pretty surprised since the estimated shipping date was May 14, but I'm certainly not complaining :applause:

The new black Wii looks much better, now whats next for Nintendo. Could we possibly see Wii's the same color as we did all the N64's back in the day?

I am interested in getting this...I was wondering, does amazon charge sales tax in Nevada?...I'm moving there soon and I was wondering if NV is one of those rare states that they charge tax.


EDIT: Never-mind here's the list of states they charge taxes in http://www.amazon.co...73355692&sr=1-1

Does the black Wii do 1080p? or is the same 480p? :roll:

Unbelievable that people are going nuts for a console with a different color. Sony and Microsoft don't seem to have much luck with this. It seemed that most people didn't care about the Silver PS3 nor the Halo Green 360. What's the deal with the Nintendo crowd? They are hipnotized by Nintendo.

Sounds so wrong :p


W...why? The guy likes the way the Wii looks in the black color so he's going to give his girlfriend his current console and pick up the new bundle.

Maybe I'm lost here.

I suspect a color swap is what Nintendo thinks will turn around their diminishing sales numbers, but when this temporary measure fails and PS3 comes out with the Move to push their Sony version of Wii HD, Nintendo will unleash the Wii HD.

Probably next year around this same time. Having a functionally identical White Wii, I'll wait for that HD model. At this point, its inevitable. A Wii with HDMI would be awesome. Though... I say that about all source devices. Haha.

I wonder if these black wii's will be the fanless versions with the 65nm processors? I would be interested to find this out if anyone gets their hands on one.

Just received mine, had a big puncture on the outside box, that drove in and busted the airbag on the inside and continue to puncture through the Wii box. I don't think anything inside was hit but this is bullshit, looks like someone did this on purpose. Anyone know what Amazon's stance on this is? Will they replace it?

Yup. I once had a 360 video game shipped to me damaged (outer case was cracked and disc inside was loose). Envelope it shipped in was torn as well. Amazon offered to replace it if I sent back the damaged game or to give 10 or 15% back the purchase price if I decide to keep it (I forgot exactly how much).
