New Standard Wii Package Includes MotionPlus, Wii Sports Resort, Available in Black

By Alice O'Connor, May 03, 2010 5:40am PDT The Nintendo Wii will be available in black from May 9, Nintendo has announced, when it updates the $199 standard bundle to include Wii Sports Resort and the MotionPlus peripheral in addition to Wii Sports and a controller, as had been rumoured.

"By including even more of our top-quality hardware and software in the basic Wii system package, we're extending that commitment to entertainment and value," said Nintendo of America's Reggie Fils-Aime. "Now more than ever, consumers can count on Nintendo to deliver inclusive fun and advanced motion controls at a mass-market price."

The May 5 release date applies only to the USA. Nintendo has yet to reveal when it will hit elsewhere, though according to the earlier rumours it'll invade Canada on May 23.
