The Nintendo Direct presentation has revealed a black version of the Wii U GamePad, shown above. We can only hope this is available at launch. It looks quite nice.
So getting black version! :D
exaclty my thought
holy moley moley diggady damn thats cool
There’s also a black Wii U system.
I’m surprised that wasn’t mentioned in the article. You can see it next to the TV during portions of the video.
This will probably be available at launch. :)
black Wii U
Yes black suits it so much better and now it has thumbstick buttons.
Indeed it looks badass in black
Yes, black suits it so much better and now it has thumbstick buttons.
Sorry for double post.
Oh yeah. It’ll be chllin’ with my black Gamecube, black PS3, and black TV. Can’t wait.
I’m chllin’ with my Black PS2, Black PS3, Black TV, Black PSP, Black GC. Only white thing is my Wii, but that’s going of the TV when the Wii U gets in my house, most likely.
Yeah, Team Black FTW.
T_T so awesome got to have it
OMFG! Not again! Last year it was Team Aqua vs Team Cosmo. Not it is gonna be Team White vs Team Black, or whatever Nintendo decides to name both colors.
polar white and galaxy black and im getting the black
Haha… About 3DS colours – Someone might want to make a post about it here, but a recent Pokemon Black 2/White 2 ad (the part which says it works in 2D mode on Nintendo 3DS), shows a silver 3DS shell :P
Son of a bitch. The controller’s gonna be a fingerprint whore.
I have an arcade stick that attracts a crap-ton of fingerprints (Eightarc Onyx). I think I can handle this.
I’m sure they’ll include some kind of help for cleaning it OR if they’re clever, it will be covered in fingerprint resistant stuff.
Black for me :3
<3 Black Wii U
Love the black one! Hopefully they announce the price and release date at E3
Nintendo will announce the price and release date at a later time and not at E3. Nintendo said that themselves.
The controller’s surface looks like a fingerprint magnet and a dust whore. =L
BLACK MOTHAAAAA IM GETTIN THIS MOTHA COLOR AT LAUNCH
YEAH black Wii U with ANOLOG STICKS NOT CIRCLE PADS YEAH HOW U FEEL!!??
Black all the way!
thats a true gamers and man color!
Black is a condensed rainbow. It’s all the colors in one!
How manly. I’ll take three!
it better be a choice to be black at launch…..
gotta go black
Looks cool. I honestly don’t care which color I get, black or white. I just care about the Wii U itself, and all it has to offer.
Always bet on black.
I want the balck one. I’ve got a kid and my white Wii remotes look dirty as hell.
That whole video of the showing off the social network has made me go insane.
I SO WANT THIS BLACK CONTROLLER!!!
PLEASE Let there be a pre-order option for black
! I had a fireplace incident a few years back and the smoke raised…And then my wii was covered in gray and black dirt. :/
Also, while white was unique black looks far more sleek. White looks fatter.
Black? They just got themselves a sale.
If you look closely in the video, you can see the black Wii-U as well when he sets up the video chat !
originally, I was appalled by the first leak of a Wii U controller with sticks instead of pads, but after seeing this facelift with a different design, I’ve given it a second thought. It looks very light and compact now. :D
White Wii U GamePad
Pros: Modern looking, Fingerprints show up less
Cons: Dirt or marks show up easily
Black Wii U GamePad
Pros: Reminders of past consoles, Dirt shows less, Looks sexy
Cons: Fingerprints show up more
My solution: Buy one of each. :D
ALL BLACK EVERYTHING!!!
Wii U… Shut up and take my parents money.
Agreed. I loved this comment.
I’ve never in my life wanted a black-colored gaming console…until now. Usually, I find the color overused and boring as a color choice for consoles, but it looks just plain sleek on a Wii U.
Now that I know there’s a Black Wii U, I can finally say Day One! :)
