I just found this out and some of you may have noticed it or not, but I seem to find out that Nintendo changed the way the original Wii console looks.  Here is the console:

http://happyholidays.nintendo.com/consoles/detail/?console=wii

The console is sideways now and it looks pretty good.  I still wish I had mine in black.  I hate the white color.  For some reason, I seem to like getting consoles that are the opposite of the original color.  For example, my PS2 is silver instead of black. I have a GBA that is black instead of blue.  You get the point, anyways, I just seem to enjoy the way it looks now.  What do you think about it?

Note:  From what I think about this, they made it look like the Wii U console.  Don't you think?

 It looks cool, but I would NEVER get it, because it's not compatible with GameCube games OR controllers. Can you imagine Super Smash Bros. without GAMECUBE CONTROLLERS?

totaldramaman2 : What are you talking about?  This is the Wii, not Wii U.  I just said that.  The Wii is compatible with the Gamecube games.

lol.

This is lamer than lame. Is this really the best they can do?

Oh, we need more sales, what can we do to beef up sales....

*turns Wii sideways*

THERE WE GO!

Seriously, at this point, I dislike Nintendo. They keep making a million versions of the same f***ing systems.

First it was the DS series, next is the Wii.

I bet you the WiiU will be just the same... constantly getting new looks and adding letters at the end.

Marcmoney : The new Wii "Family Edition" doesn't support GameCube at all. But maybe we're not talking about the same thing.

I don't think it matters at this point. It may be the holiday season, but the Wii U is projected to be released sometime next year after April. With the Wii U being compatible with the games of its predecessor, the Wii, buying this black Wii would be a waste of money --unless you want something that is compatible with GameCube games.

Heh, that's not new at all

I've been using the Wii sideways like that FOREVER. Moving it sideways = No progress.

pacman1755 : If you look closely, you will see a bit of difference from that one to yours if you did not get one very recently.
AuraBlaze : How do you know it will be released in April?

Marcmoney : I said it would be after April. kNIGHTWING01 said that Nintendo is probably planning a summer release like they had done for the Famicom and Super Nintendo. It is expected to be released sometime in June. Watch the first minute of the video in the link below.

AuraBlaze : Interesting.  I hope that it will be released in the summer because I am looking forward to seeing it in stores.  What people do not understand is that the consoles Nintendo is making just do not make sense when it comes to compatibility.  For example, the original Wii can be compatible with the Gamecube games.  The Wii U will be compatible with the original Wii games.  I do not get the point of this because what is the point of that if some people enjoy playing the Gamecube games.  They are just messing with our minds.

Wait. It lacks the ability to use Gamecube controllers? Well, there's no point in getting it, then. I mostly use my Wii to play Tales of Symphonia. Yeah, really. Well, and internet browser if I need to, but really. Half the use of it gone like that?

Marcmoney : Meh. Good, I guess, but still pointless. I already am too lazy to prop it up properly, and it's just laying on it's side near my TV. So I had a sideways Wii before it was cool. Does that make me a hipster? Heh.

I think it costs a lot for a console to be able to play or read a previous generation of games. Nintendo is not in a good shape right now, so I wasn't really expecting to play Game Cube games on the Wii U.

Note: I had to split the word Game Cube because of the Spell Check, and I'm still a Newbie

I think Nintendo figures that all of the Nintendo fans have gotten the Wii already. What they're doing now is expanding their audience with the new Wii. It looks more family friendly because it looks more like a DVD player now and doesn't come with the grey stand anyways.

My girlfriend bought me a wii for christmas so I could play Skyward Sword, and she got me the black one. I always prefer the darker consoles because they don't show dirt as much, although with the black Wii, you have to worry about fingerprints... Arrrrg!
