    It's clearly not the Sonic blue. But it's a nice baby blue (that does look a little girly) and honestly, if you were an average n00b and you didn't have a Wii, would you rather get a regular Wii or this limited edition bundle Wii?

    p.s. buy wii, paint blue

    problem solved

    Yes, the Wii is still selling. There are still some good games coming out for it and the system is so bad ass! BTW anybody got a wired sensor bar they are willing to give away?

    Well it looks like the US is fraked. Knew they were coming but a guy could hope, right? I wonder how hackable these things will be and if dios-mios will work properly with these systems.

    I think the blue one looks cute. What bothers me is that Nintendo is giving away the Mario Galaxy soundtrack with the black system when the Wii doesn't even have a CD-ROM laser. Seriously, they could have just given away the soundtrack on a SD card in both .mp3 and .aac format to promote the usage of the photo channel. Also, that stupid Wii+Internet video, instead of making that a channel, they could also stick that on the SD card. It's not like the Photo Channel cant play music and videos, it just doesn't do it very well. I'm surprised that nobody has tried to modify the Photo Channel to add true media support.

    That's why we have the homebrew channel. :yay:

    About the included SMG soundtrack, they had a thought behind it. They want u to pop in the disc in ur pc, extract it to mp3 files, go get some snacks in between progress, return to ur seat, put the music on ur sd card, shove it in ur wii and yay... U now have some BG music to ur photos. :tpi: :tpi:
    Sounds like alot of work. :creep:

    But on topic, the blue color... :glare: meh adds more variety in color decision (lawl), but nothing I'll bother with :sleep:

    So any price announced? I expect cheaper with the lack of certain parts.

    It's prob the same price as current wii:s right? Correct me if I'm wrong :)

    Edit: Dunno the price in dollar, but I'd guess on 160 euro

    I'll have to agree with Bortz on this one. To me the color looks unappealing and somehow generic. It looks like a color that a Chinese knockoff would be made in. Black and white were just fine with me.

    EDIT:The worst part about it is that it's not even Sonic blue. It's just some ice blue which is similar to the DS lite.

    I just want someone to buy one of these consoles so we can see how hackable these systems are.
     
  17. I would assume it's just as hackable as any other Wii with a D3-2 drive.

    I don't understand why they want to remove GameCube support. it's silly.

    I know, right, the Gamecube had, in my opinion, better and easier controllers for people to use then the Classic Controller.
    Lets not forget the decent/great games which have not seen a sequel on the Wii (yet), like Starfox, etc.
