Wii Fit Plus includes new features as well as new exercises, yoga activities and balance games. Wii Fit Plus will be available bundled with the Wii Balance Board for $99.99 while the disc will be available on its own for $19.99. Head over to our hands-on preview of Wii Fit Plus for more information.

The Nintendo DSi will be available in White and Pink from the 13th of September for $169.99, joining the Blue and Black versions already available in stores. Nintendo will also release a new Black version of the Wii Remote bundled with a Black version of Wii MotionPlus this holiday season. This Black bundle is the first new colour for the Wii Remote and Wii MotionPlus. A Black version of the Nunchuk will also be available as a standalone purchase.

Nintendo released a Black Wii in Japan on the 1st of August, the new colour boosted flagging console sales with 95 357 units sold in the first two days of its release. Will Nintendo of America follow suit with a Black Wii now that they have plans to release black controllers for the console?

Nintendo of America President & COO Reggie Fils-Aime made these announcements in his keynote address at the 2009 GameStop Manager Conference. “All of these announcements bring more options and more choices to consumers as our industry heads into its busiest time of the year. Each of these products allows consumers to enjoy a more personal gaming experience, no matter how they choose to play.”






Thoughts?

This all sounds good to me. I'm glad Wii Fit Plus is only $19.99.

That black Wii is the sexiest thing I've seen in a long time. They better release it here.

^ Don't know if they plan to bring it outside of japan or not, and I wouldn't think so. This isn't like the Pro and Elite are.

Probably won't have any extra features. Nintendo don't want to please customers too much, they just want as much money now so they can put stuff that's needed now in another new console in 3 years time.

2000th post.

It really is. I don't know of any major one that doesn't follow that mold. At least not any I can recall right now :l
