Black Nintendo Wii Release Confirmed

As of November 2007 the Nintendo Wii has become the number one family console that has sold more copies than any of the other Next Generation systems (Xbox 360 and PS3). The reason behind the Wii’s success can be debated, but it is indeed the most successful out of the three regardless of who you ask. In terms of sales, profits, and market the Wii has dominated its competitors

Sure there are many gamers that have chosen not to get a Nintendo Wii simply because it does not have high definition graphics, or hardcore games. That’s their decision, and people have a right to that choice. Hands down the Wii is considered the “Fun” Console; it gave birth to a new way to play games with its motion controllers, that’s what it was created for. Project Revolution (Codename for the Wii) was intended to bring about change. This console appeals to everyone, and there are some great games for hardcore gamers, such as Resident Evil 4, Super Mario Galaxy, Legend of Zelda Twilight Princess, and of course Super Smash Brothers Brawl.

Back to the main point of this article, Nintendo has confirmed that it has developed a Black Nintendo Wii, and will be releasing it in Japan this summer. That being the case there will be a Black Wii on US store shelves around the same time if not a little later. For years now customers have wanted a different color Wii, and now we may be getting a taste of the some multicolored Wii eye candy. (At last)

Along with the Black Wii there will be new Black Wii Remotes, Classic Controllers, and Numchuck’s to match the set. The Black Wii is rumored to be bundled with a Game other than Wii Sports. The Black Wii is nothing more than the regular Wii with a black shell. But you have to admit, based on the screenshots and images available it looks pretty neat. The Black Wii looks a lot sleeker compared to the original Wii. It’s amazing what a simple color change can do for a game console.

As the original Wii prospective Japanese owners will have the option of buying it in a bundle with what will undoubtedly be 2009’s biggest game for that region: Capcom’s Monster Hunter 3 (Tri).The Monster Gunter 3 Black Wii bundle will be released on August 1, concurrent with the standalone version of the game, and will include the game, a black Wii system, and a black Classic Controller Pro for $ 342.

Red Lights Xbox 360 Fix

So what if that title doesn’t make sense. I’ll tell you what doesn’t make any sense. What doesn’t make any sense is the idea that that my Xbox 360 needs to be fixed yet again because those freaking flashing red lights have shown up. How is that even possible!? How can a game console that cost that much money be that pathetically worthless?

I tell you what, the most frustrating experience of my life was a few weeks after I got my console and for no good reason at all, it froze. Luckily, the old patented ‘Microsoft trick’ worked the first time. You know, when your Microsoft computer freezes, what do you do?

• Turn it off and back on again. Well, that worked.

But a week later, guess what? I needed yet another red lights Xbox 360 fix. Even though the three red lights were showing, my power supply was still green. This is an indication that you may be able to fix it yourself even if you don’t know anything about fixing 360’s.

This time after searching, here’s what I did:

• Removed the hard drive
• Removed the memory card
• Replaced them both

Well that lasted just a tad longer than my first fix. I was feeling devilishly sneaky like I had beaten the system because I didn’t have to pay the $ 140 to ship the thing to Microsoft AND I didn’t have to pay anyone else to repair the game console too. . . until.

Well they like to say the third time’s the charm. And in my case it was a real freaking curse. I tried my two tricks again, but nothing. It showed me that the red lights on my Xbox 360 needed to be fixed for real this time.

All I knew were two things:

1. I wasn’t going to send those thieves at Microsoft any more money for a faulty piece of equipment that I shouldn’t have to fix anyway. Even though the warrantee is free, the shipping is EXPENSIVE.
2. And I knew it had to be something simple that I could do myself if I just knew how to do the red lights Xbox 360 fix.

So I did a bit more research online and came up with my last solution. Turns out there are some pretty cheap repair guides that specialize in the red lights Xbox 360 fix. Much to my surprise, it did fix it and hasn’t broken down since. It was pretty easy. Hopefully in your case, the tricks I used above will work. If not, at least you’ve got a far cheaper solution than sending it to Microsoft.
