Is it really Wednesday already?! This week is flying by! I guess that Labor Day start to the week really set the tone for the rest of the week. Let's hope Friday night gets here even quicker. We all need some R and R! See you in a few, short hours.
When you look back on Nintendo's previous hardware, you start to see a very colorful rainbow. The Big N loves to re-release their hardware in all sorts of colors. As soon as one round of colors comes out, the next color ends up getting announced for Japan. While the color whirlwind doesn't hit as hard on consoles as it does portables, Nintendo still makes sure to offer up a variety of colors no matter what platform you're playing.
I do enjoy seeing new colors released for Nintendo's hardware. It's always nice finding out about the latest paint scheme that is going to head our way. Obviously, Nintendo loves doing these paint jobs because they know that the right color can turn an uninterested consumer into a new console/portable owner.
I've never been one to purchase a game console/portable just because of its color. If there are choices at launch, I pick whichever one I enjoy the most. If that color scheme wasn't available when I went to purchase, I would get whatever other one was in stock. I'm really not a stickler for the colors. I am much more interested in getting a platform to play software!
That's why I don't really mind if the black Wii U launches alongside the white. It sure seems like a done deal, though. I'd be very surprised if black and white options weren't available on day one. I'm sure many of you guys and gals have already lined up on your side of the fence, ready to defend your color choice as the real show-stopper when it comes to looks.
How much does console color matter to you? Do you rush out to buy the latest portable when it becomes available in your favorite color? Do you not even think twice about color? Leave us a comment and fill us in!
