Nintendo News: May 03, 2010

Here’s a rundown of what’s been happening today in the Nintendo universe!

black wii It’s official: North America is getting the black Wii!  Plus, it’s a sweet deal!  You get the Wii Console, all the cables and accessories, 1 Wii remote, 1 nunchuck, 1 Motion Plus, Wii Sports, AND Wii Sports Resort, all for $200!  It’s a fantastic deal!  Look for it starting May 9th.

The Cubs Scouts of America are now offering a badge for… yes, video games.  Unbelievable, really!  I’d have certainly had my Eagle if they had badges like that when I was a kid.  Anyways, the badge is more about responsible gaming (checking ratings, price comparisons, time restrictions), so it may not be all that fun.  But it’s nice to see organizations embrace gaming rather than blame the world’s troubles on it.

There’s a rumor circulating that GameCrazy is closing all of its stores.  Well, you know what store closings mean… liquidation!  All stores are expected (although it’s not official yet) to start liquidation sometime in the next two weeks. [via Joystiq]

Well, that’s about the gist of it.  Stay tuned for (semi) daily news updates!

That black wii looks pretty sharp :) Probably would match the TV and stuff better... Maybe one day when ours poops out we'll have to see if we like a black one better :) You're doing a great job, by the way :) I'm glad you are writing blogs again!
