Black Wii headed to Europe as well In June, Nintendo released the Wii console with a black colorway in Japan and the company has announced today that the same limited edition console will be headed to Europe for the holiday season.
The Wii launches on November 6th in both the UK and Ireland and will carry an MSRP of 179.99. The system will come bundled with Wii Sports Resort, original Wii Sports, black Wii remote with Motionplus and a black Nunchuk controller.

Adds Nintendo UK product manager for Wii Rob Lowe: "Nintendo has always taken the European market seriously and this isn't the first time a product has launched in the UK or Europe before the US. We are keen to launch the black Wii in time for the Christmas sales season and this starts slightly earlier in the UK and Republic of Ireland [than elsewhere]."

Is there any way to transfer your current Wii DLC to this new console upon purchase? The new color scheme is cool, but honestly; who was waiting to buy the Wii until it came out in black? There will be a few new sales, but I would imagine that most purchases would be to add a second console to the house or upgrade/replace an existing one.
