With no US release date in sight, Japan gets to enjoy the sleek new Black Wii , beginning August 1st. Even though it is the same exact machine as the white version, this one just makes it that much more intriguing. Isn’t everything just that much cooler in black? Cars, phones, kitchen appliances, sneakers and of course leather. Nintendo needs to get it going with a US release. We know we would sleep better at night if our Wii matched our TV instead of the George Foreman Grill.
