Yes the BLACK Nintendo Wii is available to pre-order by the looks of things, it is letting me add it to basket and checkout, but is showing `Not currently available` under the quantity. Comes with two quality games-Call of Duty 3 and Redsteel for £279 with free delivery. There are 2 other packages available also, rising to £369 with 4 games. Not the cheapest obviously, but might get you the black one early? I`ll just be happy when my white jobby lands in Woolies next week(I hope!)

I'm also waiting for the black Wii; I read somewhere that it will be available in April 2007, but not sure if that's the case with the European market.
#2
No one knows until Nintendo announces it or someone spreads a rumour.
#3
Thanks for the pointer :) Bit expensive I think, but as you say, someone might be desperate for a Wii...

Please not Nintendo have delayed plans in making this colour until later in 2007.
#5
I'd say it's fairly pointless pre-ordering one.
Nintendo have done nothing to suggest they'll actually be releasing this. The image of the black one is an old publicity shot of a prototype.
If you zoom in, you'll see it actually says 'Revolution' on the front, which was the Wii's codename.

In MCV Nintendo have stated that additional colours will be released once they can cope with the stock issues. No point in interupting manufacturing when you just want to get them on the shelves.
#7
Yep, no need to introduce the next version when you can sell the ones you are making now. Now when they start to become available to the point where you can just walk in and buy one without prior knowledge of stock then you'll see the new ones.

I'm still waiting - despite my wife now deciding she wants one.
#8
I want one now lol, but I don't want either of those games so I shall not be preordering it
#9
If you really want a Wii I think you are mad to wait for a black one!

As said above they will use the coloured versions to get a few extra sales when they start to dwindle. that could be a while yet.
#10
Oh i am not desperate to have one now I will happily wait a year especially with all the awesome 360 games due out

Nintendo has decided to increase the Wii production starting in April 2007.

I been waiting for a Black Wii, also emailed Nintendo who replied saying that they have no news for the Black Wii yet but will let everyone know when they are ready to market them.

It sucks really as I got a white one (had 4 over Xmas) which I am going to trade in Cex as I think it looks ugly (compared to everything else being black).

It looks odd. I got a black Cube, PS2, DS, PSP, my N64 is black, my PSONE (is tucked away now)..... I think this is the same situation for like everyone! :giggle:

I think the BLACK one will be released sometime in spring as they did the same with the DS and everything else.... I mean when people get bored buying the dam things they seem to bring it out in every colour possible!

I even heard (seen demo pics) rumours of a gold / green Zelda version popping out as well - will post pictures where possible, it looks bloody amazing!

Why buy a Black Wii? Its exactly the same inside as the white, just a different colour. You could always buy stickers to put on it to make it black :thumbsup: You can buy these stickers, but can't remember where?? Anyone help out?? :thinking:

if the worst comes to worst, get out your black permanent markers and colour it in! :? ;-) :whistling:

Cheeky freemans! They're taking pre-orders for a probably-soon-to-be-released product. They have no more information about release dates than anyone else! In fact, they can't guarantee that black wiis will even be available within the next 6 months.

This is just an attempt to be first to take orders... Screw the aftersales service! This type of phantom selling is better suited to ebay... Take preorders and hope for the best!

No offence meant to VeedubyaGTi.

...So they say... "It's just a myth!".

Just get fablon or sticky backed plastic and hack with stanley knife!
#16
Slightly cheaper alternative...

buy a wii, then just put a skin on it if colour is so important, loads of websites sell skins. Heres one that will even do custom skins.

Apparently the coloured ones will allow you to play DVDs, ok while that isn't a WOW factor because I mean who doesn't have about 15 devices in the house that plays DVDs - I think i have 9 in my room lol, it is still a difference

I agree, but who would be silly enough to buy a Wii for playing DVD's?? :thinking:
#19
I quite like the fact that it's so small though. It would make a nice small DVD player with component outputs. Small enough to fit on a little shelf under a slim TV. They always make standalone DVD players so big!

i am waiting on the black one now, been playing with my brothers wii (hehe) a couple of times. its ok but nothing i cant wait for
