Considering that the Nintendo Wii is growing by leaps and bounds in terms of popularity, there are some great offers for the limited edition black Nintendo Wii bundles. The question is where can you get the best black Nintendo Wii bundles?
There’s a very attractive package that includes the Nintendo Wii Console (Black) with Wii Sports Resort and Motion Plus Controller (Wii). This product contains both Wii Sports and Wii Sports Resort.
Nintendo’s Wii video game system (pronounced “we”) is designed to appeal to people, regardless of their age or video game experience, inviting them to sit down and play together, whether in the same room or across the globe.
This new version, cleverly called the black Nintendo Wii bundle, offers new features including built-in Wi-Fi access, supported by a new online gaming service, and Wii’s intuitive, wireless, motion-sensitive game controller.
The system boasts additional elements as well—512 MB of internal flash memory, two USB 2.0 ports, and a slot for SD memory expansion. Instead of a tray, Wii uses a single, self-loading media bay that will play both 12cm optical discs used for the new system, as well as Nintendo GameCube discs.
The real revolution in this system is its controller, called the Wii Remote. Shaped like a TV remote, it is designed for ease of use by beginners and pros alike. Sensors determine the Wii Remote’s position in 3-D space, which means that racing-game steering and a tennis swing, for example, are done through movements of your hand rather than by just your thumbs.

What are the black Nintendo Wii bundle reviews like?
They are quite on the enthusiastic side, which bodes well for this product:
Fantastic product! As other reviewers have said before it blends in well with the TV, BluRay Player and even the Sky box! One notable improvement on the black wii is the standby—when you switch the console off via the Wii-mote, it goes to red on the console—whereas on the white wii, switching that one off via the remote only turns it to amber. From Amazon.
Great price, Looks very nice in the black version, shame it’s only limited edition though, best be quick if you fancy one of these. Overall i personally think it looks far better than the previous white version. From Play.com
