    Fuck Nintendo. Give me some options other than Blue & Black for the DSi.

    I'd buy the Red or the White in a heartbeat if you released it here.

    If I buy the Blue one now I'm fucking stuck with it because the moment I start buying stuff on the DSi shop it's tied to that system forever.

    Fuck.

    I always wanted a black Wii.

    There's no way to transfer all of my VC and WiiWare games between Wiis, right?

    I mean, I have a launch console, so it's already out of warranty, and replacing it with somethign fresher wouldn't be the worst idea in the world.

    But I don't want to lose my games.

    The black goes really well with the blue lights. That is one sexy looking console. Of course, buying a second console just for the colors is frighteningly retarded, but this is great for people still looking to buy a Wii.

    Black looks pretty good
    I'm iffy about the new classic controller, as the outward-facing handles will just get in the way when trying to use the analog sticks
    Also, can we get a translation on the club nintendo picture? 5000 sounds like the price of wii sports resort + motion+, but what does the blue controller and nunchuck have to do with it?

    Actually you don't capture/train any of them, you hunt them for parts to craft your equipment. There are character classes like a swordsman, a gunner etc. It's a pseudo-MMO and one of the best looking Wii games.

    A better comparison is "medieval Phantasy Star Online."

    That black Wii is really sexy, but people are really willing to sell off an old console and buy the new one just for the color? I can understand a portable system, maybe, but a home console that just sits next to your TV (or in my case, behind the TV)?

    If they had a way like with PS3 where you can have your games on multiple consoles, or if it was like iTunes and you could de-authorize an account, I would probably give my white wii to my parents and pick up one of these, since it would match my PS3 and tv oh-so-nicely.

    Unfortunately I'm not sure I want to give up the games I bought via VC (not that it was a ton, but still.)

    I'm hoping when they release the new color that they'll also come out with a way to transfer. It makes no sense not to. Perhaps they'll allow you to input the codes from both your Wiis and the system will transfer over ownership so you can re-download them on the new one?

    Edit: As in, input it once for the whole system, not once per game. that'd suck.

    Remember back before there were any online games on the Wii, and we were all, the Wii has its own friend code, there's no way they'll put individual codes in each game you want to play online!

    I think you know what they would do if they did allow a transfer.

    It really isn't like phantasy star even. It is so funny I have been in dozens of conversations about what Monster Hunter is on these boards and it is still hard to tell people what it plays like. I still think the gameplay is more like Street Fighter than anything else. Though if you removed the leveling mechanic and added in a bunch of crafting the actual combat is very similiar to Demon's Soul. Regardless what it is for sure, is one of the best game frachises ever conceived.

    I know there is zero chance of that bundle coming stateside but goddamn... do want sooo badly.
