Too bad there's no way to transfer game and save data from one Wii to another. :lol

This is why I only ever bought three Wiimotes. Been holding out for the black one. Black Nunchuk and jacket is a nice touch. :D
Are you sure about that? I seem to remember people trading game saves online at one point.

Some, but not all, save data can be transferred, but WiiWare/VC games cannot be.

Smash Bros. for example, cannot be transferred.

fuck... if only i held out 2 more days
If you bought it 2 days ago, you could take it back.

Then again, you'd have to wait for the new one to come out here.

I couldn't justify buying a new Wii just for the color, regardless, but if the opportunity came up, the downloaded games and saves are tied to the console. There is a way to untie the saves using something from Datel IIRC, though.

What about the red DSi >:-(
Really want that. Theoretical question. Since I'm a color whore. I get a new DSi. Is there any earthly way to deauthorize my account on that one and get all my DSiware on the other one? Or do I have to start over?

I hope they make around 300K of those. They better have the Black Wii available separately, too. Wii might be able to match the entire first six months of the year in just August. :lol

did i just see wat u did there?
Hahah, what did I do? Seriously, I don't know what I did??? I'm just saying that this should help the console market in general in Japan because it's been performing so poorly thus far this year.
