Finally, here’s a review from someone on Amazon which I thought summed up so many positives of this black Nintendo Wii
‘I had been thinking about getting the Wii for some time but was concerned it would spoil my high tech living room. The black version however looks fantastic and, without the stand in use, lays discretely on my TV unit. It’s surprisingly small and, though I am loathed to admit it, looks cool. It also plays great too. I have a PS3 and for visually engaging games that can’t be beaten (unless you’re an X-Box convert). The Wii however provides an all-together different experience. I have targeted the sports and activity games. Everyone wants to play the Wii from my grand daughter to my wife (not the most dedicated gamer). I am avoiding buying any “serious” titles for the Wii, like Assassin’s Creed II, Avatar and F1 2009, say. The Wii was built for Mario Kart, Sports Resort and Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games. It’s a lot cheaper than installing a bowling ally, tennis court or boxing ring I can assure you. I recommend getting a composite video lead for the Wii if your TV supports it to optimise the relatively simple visuals. In summary, when we want to have fun or want to involve everyone in the action it’s the Wii we choose.’
And another from Amazon
‘It comes complete with black remote, black nunchuck and black motion plus controller, including two silicone covers for both sized remotes. I just prefer the look of the black console and accessories – the blue lights stand out better on it all and it just looks sleeker. They’ve also included a special cleaning cloth for the wii to avoid scratching. I guess this time round they really have thought of everything!
As for the gameplay – fantastic. Innovative and so much fun. Particularly Mario Kart Wii, endless hours of family fun!’
