    Anyone know when the other colors of the Wii console are going to be sold? I'm really looking forward to buying a black one but if it doesn't come out till late next year or something, I might just go ahead and pick up the white one.

    Also, if the Wii hardware is somehow exploited, would it be better to own a launch version of the console, or one released later down the line? (As far as compatiblity would go)

    Lastly, is the Wii region free as far as games go?

    I'm tired of playing on my roomate's Wii! [​IMG]

    Expect different colours from April onwards, a new financial year should bring new colours.
    If their is an exploit it would be preferable to have an early system but with updates in the firmware/software there wouldn't be much difference in the end.
    The Wii isn't region free, hopefully datel will make a freeloader or there will be a simple mod to change between US and JPN regions.

    Up until now Nintendo didn't announce any plans to sell Wii consoles of other colors.
    "One price, one configuration, one color."

    phil: They announced it? I must have missed it then.

    It isn't in anyway a formal announcement.

    Hopefully both the Wiimote and Nunchuck attachments will be color coordinated with the console. I wonder if Wii Sports will still be packaged in...?

    I hope this doesn't happen, the color thing on the DS lite screwed my monies big time. Those limited edition crap too @$#%@$%!
