That might tip the scales for me.

I'm sure Directv can't wait to get their hands on your unit.

I don't even have a Wii, and I'm tired of it being white. I'm also tired of it not outputting in Hi-Def and still costing the same as when it came out.

I'm tired of lack of good games.

Who cares about color? All the wii has now is mounds and mounds of shovelware.

What games do you have? I'll take them from you... :)

I have to admit I play four games. The one I play the most is Mariokart Wii. I also play a lot of Guitar Hero (drums)... I am going to get punchout though, for two reasons, nastalgia and my son (6 year old) is a pretty good fighter, so it would be fun to play against him on that.

At first glance...looks neat.

But we look at the TV screen here, not the box or console....so it really means very little.

If the day ever comes that the game console manufacturers come out with a rack-mount version...then color will come into play....otherwise...little difference.
