RUMOR - New Wii colors confirmed

GN 1.0 / 2.0

As of right now, this is nothing more than a rumor. A rumor I have trouble believing, my reasons stated below.

Website GameDrift has said that “an anonymous Nintendo rep” confirmed to them that the Wii will indeed come in different colors, and the colors of red and black have been confirmed. I don’t believe this story to be true, and here’s why.

First up, we all know that Nintendo will indeed release new Wii color schemes in the future. We don’t know when, but it will definitely happen. As far as the rumor goes, that is the only part I believe to be true. Second, the color confirmations sound bogus to me. Just last week Reggie was asked by GamePro when we could expect to see new Wii colors. Reggie then said that Nintendo can’t even keep up with the demand for the white Wii. They haven’t started thinking about colors yet. Reggie won’t discuss it yet, but an anonymous rep confirms two colors? I just don’t think this sounds real.

Then again…Nintendo did pull a fast one on us with the DS Lite announcement. Thanks to Hitmanfq for the heads up.
