Wii U: Colors for Everybody!

In recent decades, Nintendo's been known for offering lots of color options in terms of hardware. With the Wii U touted as a system for everybody, it'll be interesting to see how their hardware color strategy pans out. Zelda Informer talks about the importance of color options for all. (Wii U)

Great! I'll take a pink Wii-U to show off my manliness!

A real man doesn't care about what others would think of him regarding his choice of color.

I used to have a transparent xbox. Wonder If Nintendo will ever go with that just like the GameBoy.

Boy, did I want a lime green Wii. I think the Wii was and Wii U is a stylish pair of consoles. Right now, though, my Wii is under my tv, set atop my DVD player. That's fine, except that more color options could really make me want to display my system more prominently. My house is very colorful, and myself and many other people would love electronics that appear unique, and not just the same old black and grey metal and plastic. I had a Gears 3 Xbox 360 for awhile, which was blood red with skulls on it. Not exactly my style, but very cool looking, and certainly a head-turner. A pink WiiU, or orange or blue, would go a long way toward captivating casual gamers looking for a little style with their gaming, since you have to look at the system even when you're not playing it. I imagine a sort of collector mentality, like, "you got the fuscia WiiU? I was looking for that one! Mine is banana yellow..." And how about artist editions: limited runs of systems with graffiti designs or Miyamoto sketches printed on them, or colors from classic Nintendo systems? I know that the NES-inspired Gameboy Advance SP and the Famicom-colored Gameboy Micro are just about the coolest things I've ever seen...

yeah different coloured WiiU would be awesome they have always promised them in the past with consoles but only sold them in select countries.

but a lime green WiiU or Banana yellow would be awesome for me too.

I hope so. I really don't want a white console again.

Hopefully they put a range of colors out there at launch. It's so freaking annoying when Nintendo release a console, being loyal and wanting it you buy it, then they release better colors.
