    Nintendo today announced the first of their new Wii bundles that will be introduced in the run-up to Christmas. The new bundle contains one of the new Wii models, this time in a blue colour, along with a Wii Remote Plus and copy of Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games for Wii.

    The new bundle will be released on 18 November, although pricing has not yet been announced. Nintendo have also promised that more Wii bundles will be announced as we approach the festive season.

    Bit late I think, The Wii's already at the end of its life. ALthough who would have guessed a Nintendo console would be themed after sonic ten years ago?

    Quick and very easy way to earn another ton of money, they'll make millions of pure profit with this bundle, guaranteed. Can't blame them for releasing such a package.....

    This is the Wii without any GC possibilities by the way, just pointing that out.

    Light blue?
    They should have gone with dark blue.
    Maybe the colour that sonic is using.

    I clicked this topic hoping the new color is gold (to go with the limited edition Zelda Wii remote), but fuck.

    Exactly. They'll just copy Nintendo's idea and claim it as their own innovation. Damn them all to hell!

    This is just greed right here, they could of made the Wii color Blue for Sonic Colors. No, Nintendo just exploiting the fans like they have been doing all this time. Granted SEGA did the same thing when it came to releasing those mediocre Sonic games.

    A console that's about to get replace within the next few months before the big dispute of the Wii U in 2012, Nintendo is just being greedy.

    They're doing what they do best, make money. What did you expect? Iwata isn't Willy Wonka and Nintendo isn't the chocolate factory.

    Yeah you're right, it just a cheap tactic to make extra cash by using a gimmick (skin change) so they can have a reason to expand of its shelf-life! Then again if Nintendo fanboys like to buy anything new from them then hooray for exploitation!
    The Wii U is coming out, plus there's no GC capability? I hope it's cheap like $99.99 cheap not over that much!

    @Hankchill - Exactly my point! Everyone owns a freaking Wii right now and just buying another one at this point is splurging your money.

    I guess Nintendo doesn't understand, that even if you polish a turd, it's still a turd.

    In this case they are putting a new colour plastic on the Wii. Big Deal. Everyone already owns one :P

    kind of silly to get angry/frustrated over another wii color, isn't it?

    if everyone already has a wii then they've no need for another. if someone doesn't yet have a wii then this is a nice opportunity to pick one up.

    just as there are nintendo fanboys, there are also nintendo haters... they are not a non-profit organization, nor is any other game company.

    children are childish.
