The sexy black Wii has been entertaining Japan since last year, but on May 9, residents of the US can finally get their hands on one — along with bonus games and accessories in the new standard Wii bundle.Coming stocked with Wii Sports Resort and Wii MotionPlus (as well as the über-famous Wii Sports), the new Wii bundle will set you back $200 and comes in your choice of either a white or black console. That's a big savings, considering the Wii MotionPlus adapter and the Wii Sports Resort game retail for $20 and $50 (respectively) when bought separately. This bundle will become standard fare for gamers after next week, so if you darker-hued lovers want to coordinate all of your gadgets and consoles, now is your chance!

For $45, you'll get the game and a free Wii MotionPlus sensor to boot. Not a bad price considering how much use this game is bound to get, eh?
