Nintendo introduces new Wiimote colorways Nintendo has launched two new Wiimote colorways today, pink and blue, giving Wii console owners the ability to have 4 separate colorways for their remotes.
Each unit has MotionPlus, and will include a protective sleeve.

Gamers playing four player games can now have a different color controller for each member, but otherwise the new colorways are just that, new colors.

The items begin shipping on February 14th at the same price point of current models.



The Wiimotes are the same size but Nintendo's release pictures are different sized.

Think all these colours are a little late in the day.Would have bought "coloured" ones when i first bought the console.Do they really think il buy a new Wii or controller just cos of the colour.Dont think so,get real Nintendo and fire your marketing manager.

This is why I miss the N64 (and GC) days...
Sure, the consoles were relatively unsuccessful in the long run, but we had colors out the ass!
My TV cabinet circa 1999, you'd pull out the tangled mass of cables and plastic your controllers had taken the form of, and it was like one of those magician's hankys. Woop-woop-woop-woop-woop-woop! And it was a frigging rainbow of controllers.
