DSi gets pretty in pink and white, Wii Remote in black

Nintendo releases two new shades of its camera-equipped handheld September 13; not-so-festive motion-sensing controller, Wii Nunchuk, Wii MotionPlus set for holiday release.

Ever since the Game Boy, Nintendo has been giving its hardware regular splashes of color to help spur sales. The console maker has revealed its latest makeovers, announcing pink-and-white versions of the DSi hardware, and a black Wii Remote controller with matching nunchuk and Wii MotionPlus attachments.

Fancy!

The new shades of DSi will arrive in North American stores September 13, carrying the system's standard $169.99 price tag. It will be the first time new DSi colors are made available in the region, as the DSi palette has been limited to blue and black since the system's launch in April. In Japan, the system has also been released in red, green, and metallic blue color schemes.

Another colorful hardware option already available to the Japanese is a black Wii console. While that particular configuration hasn't been confirmed for North America just yet, Nintendo will be releasing the matching Wii Remote and plug-ins to go with it this holiday season. The black Wii Remote will come bundled with a black Wii MotionPlus add-on. A black Wii Nunchuk controller will also be available as a stand-alone item.

I'd love a black wii also. However, instead of paying for a new console I'd rather go on ebay and buy a sticker. There are actually some half transparent case mods on there that are awesome if you are into that sort of thing.

No DSi for me. Got a PS3 Slim for a 100 bucks more...in Canada DSi's are 199$. already got DS Lite anyway and is good enough. I dont even play it much if at all anymore. Pink is.. I dunno.. they should've released at least 2 new diff colors.

I would love a black Wii but I wouldn't spend any money to change colors. Black would definitely look a lot nicer in my entertainment stand though. The gray Comcast DVR pretty much makes me not care though since I cannot change that.

This is why I rarely buy my handhelds on day one, because of the new freaking colors. Dang you Nintendo, the very time I buy a system on day one and a few month later you bring out more colors.

How hard would it have been to have a black Wiimote from the start?

Looks more fuchsia than pink, but either way, a lot of young girls will have added a new item to their Christmas list.

madkiller, i totally agree. there are going to be a lot of people that aren't going to be real happy that their little girl doesn't want to play with her month old DSi anymore because she has to have the pink one.

Nice to have color options. If the Wiimote and attachments are coming in black, I sense we WILL see a black Wii in the near future.
