Nintendo Wii to Come in Black This Summer

Which Is Cooler: The Black Wii or the White Wii?

After declaring white to be the in vogue color for gadgets, I may have to eat my words. After being crisp white for two years, the Wii is going to debut this Summer in black.

The bad news? It's not coming to the US quite yet — the new colors will first only be available in Japan. That's a bummer, but then, anticipating something is always half the fun.

Let's talk about the more important implications of these colors: It's black, baby! I've just gotten used to lightening up my media center, and now we're heading back to deep, mysterious noir? I'm not saying I can't get behind it, it's just an adjustment.

So tell me, when it comes to gadgets — particularly this new Wii — do you prefer them to be in clean, Apple-esque white, or sleek, chic black?
