New slick black Balance Board coming to holiday Wii bundle in Europe

The only thing cooler than a new piece of video game hardware is an old piece of video game hardware with a new color. Enter the black Wii bundle with black Wii Balance Board.

Marking the first time Nintendo has released a Balance Board in a color other than white, this is a push from the company to get more people to buy Wii Fit during its most popular time. That is, as a gift for people who will think it's really cool and will play it nonstop until New Year's Eve, and then stuff it in the closet for the rest of eternity.

The new bundle, called the Wii Fit Plus Pack, contains the black Wii, black Wii Remote, black Balance Board, a copy of Wii Fit Plus, and a copy of Wii Sports.

It was a big deal when Nintendo launched the black Wii earlier this year as a way to incite more sales of the system. It was the first time in nearly four years that a different version of the Wii was manufactured.

Just a few weeks ago, Nintendo also launched a red Wii in the US with a copy of New Super Mario Bros Wii. It's all good, but since my favorite color is heliotrope, I'm always disappointed by these announcements.

So far this bundle has only been confirmed for Europe, with a December 3 ship date, but we may see it come to North America within the same time frame, if we're lucky enough to be allowed a new color.

    Oh my god... Almost every comment above me is an advert! As for the new combo, I'll stick with my original Wii, kthxbai.

    Guess it's obvious what nintendo is going to do with the lastyears of the wii. Bundle the crap out of it. guess it will keep those numbers up but i'd rather see then drop a 99.99 bundle. That will probably be next christmas after they announce the next console.

    I have next to no interest in the wii, but damn it does look nice in black. that's one thing sony got right with ps3, not copy apple and release hardware in a proper shiny colour

    Really? So this is Nintendo's answer to slowing console sales?

    Dare I say it Once You go Black you never go Back @ventanger But if they do hire you you'll always have to wear a smile!

    If they don't utilize "Black is Slimming" in its marketing, fire somebody. (and hire me)
