Nintendo has just announced a release date for the black-colored Wii Remote and Nunchuk controllers. On November 17th, American gamers will now be able to pick up another color for their extra Wii controllers. Additionally, the new Wii Remote will now come bundled with a MotionPlus add-on for $50, which is only $10 more than the non-enhanced white Wii Remote. The release date of these controllers comes only two days after Nintendo unleashes New Super Mario Bros. Wii onto the world, which will undoubtedly drive many gamers to purchase more Wii Remotes for their systems.

Unfortunately, the Wii itself is still only available in white outside of Japan. What's the deal, Nintendo? Didn't we have about a dozen different GameCube system colours three years after the system came out? And don't even get me started on the Nintendo 64! Anyway, here's the press release.

NINTENDO NEWS: NEW COLOR PUTS NINTENDO'S WII REMOTE AND NUNCHUK IN THE BLACK

Nintendo's iconic Wii Remote(tm) and Nunchuk(tm) controllers are getting a new look, just in time for the holidays. Ever since the Wii(tm) system launched in November 2006, the controllers have been available only in white. On Nov. 16, Nintendo introduces new black versions.

The new black Wii Remote controller will be available packaged with a black Wii MotionPlus(tm) accessory, which brings enhanced precision to games. The package will be available at a suggested retail price of $49.99. The black Nunchuk controller will be available separately at a suggested retail price of $19.99.

"The Wii Remote revolutionized not only how people play games, but also who plays them," said Cammie Dunaway, Nintendo of America's executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. "The new color lets people customize their setup, and the controllers make great stocking stuffers for players of any age."

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
