Where to buy a black Nintendo Wii console

When the Wii was released in November 2006, it had something its two main competitors - XBox 360 and Sony PlayStation 3 - didn't have - the ability to control the action directly using a motion sensitive controller. Although dubbed a novelty in the early days, five years later the Wii is still going strong and the revolution was so fierce it forced the likes of Sony and Microsoft to implement similar technology in their own consoles.

The Nintendo Wii is the successor to the GameCube and has backwards compatible capability, allowing it to play the former generation console's games. Unlike the Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3, the Wii appeals to a broader demographic of both adults and children and can be played alone or in a party environment.

Initially available only in the standard white colour, Nintendo later released additional colours, including red, lime green, silver and black. The black consoles were released throughout 2009 and 2010, with Japan seeing the first arrivals in August 2009, Europe following in November and finally America in May 2010.
