The black Wii console, which we already knew was coming, has today been officially revealed by Nintendo of America. It'll still be $200, and include not one game, but two.

Along with the Wii console, controller and nunchuk, the new Wii pack will include a Wii MotionPlus accessory and a copy both of Wii Sports and its sequel, Wii Sports Resort. We knew this too, but still, official details are always appreciated.

This price and bundle deal will extend to both the black and existing white models of the console, with the new pack (and black Wii) going on sale on May 9.

DISCUSSION

This is a really clever way to have a "price drop" without having to actually drop the price. Wii Sports Resort is a $50 value, but this isn't the same as dropping the Wii to $150.

I wouldn't mind a black Wii, but I don't know any way to transfer my purchases, so I guess it's time to wait for Wii 2 or 3D Wii or whatever.
