*Rumor* Black Wii being released this weekend at Wal-Mart *Update*
This is a rumor that I'm sure you've heard by now. Nintendo is going to be releasing a new bundle at Wal-Mart: The Black Wii with Wii Sports Resort, Wii Sports, a black Wii remote and black Wii motion plus (I guess this replaces having a Nunchuk packed in). Suggested retail price will still be $199.99 but no one knows for how long this deal will last. The guys at NeoGAF have been calling Wal-Mart stores and they confirm that this will start on Saturday of this week. I'm still saying this is rumor since we haven't gotten any confirmation from Nintendo or any other sources besides word of mouth.
How many of you would jump on this deal if it turns out to be true? If you already have a Wii, would you trade it in for this one? The only problems I see with this is that Wal-Mart might be the only store doing this and they don't take trade-in's; not only that but what about all your save data and VC/WiiWare games you have on your system? You're going to need to bug Nintendo constantly to get your access available for you new system so you can re-download all those games and what not. Hopefully soon we'll hear the truth to this and maybe Nintendo will make an easy transition for those who want to transfer their games over.
It sure is pretty though.....
It seems the bundle will be for the white Wii, called the "special value edition" it will have all the items listed above but still in white. A great deal but I was really hoping for the black version. Who knows, maybe in the future they will be releasing it also here in the states (which they should).
