Black Wii U
Nintendo will be offering both a white and black Wii U console at launch. After much speculation, Nintendo has confirmed on their official E3 page that there will be white and black Wii U colors available at launch. On the page, users can select a white or black Wii U version, with corresponding Wii U images and information about the system. In addition, the page has plenty of videos on the new features and some of the new games revealed, including Wii Fit U. It is entirely possible that Nintendo opted to use the black Wii U colors during trailers and videos in order to appeal more to the core gamers. This could also be the reason for offering a black color at launch, the main competitors, the PS3 and Xbox 360, are both available in black only.

Most of the trailers we’ve seen featured included the black Wii U, while previously Nintendo only showed the white version. This could also pave way for different Wii U models with different hardware specs, most notably, an internal hard drive. Although this is yet to be confirmed — Nintendo will announce the launch date, price, and possible models at a later date. With the recent announcement that the Wii U will support dual GamePads, it’ll be possible for players to mix the white and black GamePads if they chose to.

    Imagine controllers squared cornered, front recessed instead of bubble effect. And console more square with some industrial design. Rough exterior, then can collect nintendo stickers that can stick on console, and paint markers for people to graffitti console for fun. Then let wii era be gone, rename it. Also let people dress their miis. I am trying to figure out bad reviews ever since last year. Its because we dont feel like were getting something new or interesting. What if it was cube 2, no. Its nintendo, not wii. Online is great, specs are good, and i actually like graphics, theyre flush, and not clay like, as ps and xbox are. So im certain, its exterior design and branding that is not selling. Let me be the boss for one day, regginator in the ditch. But i know what im talking about. You cant cut corners on design.
