    I just got a black one from Amazon. Same price as the white one, $149.99 including the Mario Kart and Wii wheel. One of each controller. Gorgeous slick black. And since it was from Amazon, no sales tax (and free shipping).

    And to think I was happy when I got my white Wii, Wii Sports, and a single remote for $100 more back in '06. Haste makes waste, there's no doubt about that.

    Precisely why I'll be waiting for the "new" model of the 3DS to come out, and then proceed to buy the old one. Waiting a year to buy a game system to save a hundred or so? I'm sold.

    Hey, no kidding. I'm not usually an early adopter of technology -- I wait to see the bugs get worked out and for the price to drop. There were two times I was an early adopter:

    -- When my gargantuan laptop died a few years ago, the very first netbooks were out (Asus eeePC with Linux and tiny flash drives). I bought one for a ton of money (compared to now) and only THEN did the market get flooded with a bunch of them with better specs and prices.

    -- I bought the first-gen Kindle three years ago, for a steal at $300 (ha ha, but the regular price had just been $400). About a month later they announced an upcoming Kindle 2... (sigh) A long time later I bought my son the Kindle 2, and about a month later they announced an upcoming Kindle 3. (sigh sigh)

    So now I'm back to NOT being an early adopter. Learned my lessons... which is why I've had my black Wii for only about a week (a wiik?).

    Ahh, yes. The e-book craze. Just like cell phones, it was an arms race for the best technology, as fast as possible... I do my best to stay away from those technological sort of leaps entirely. They can cause some giant holes in your wallet, as you know.

    In my own defense, I bought the Kindle right before a big vacation and it was nice to not have to pack a bunch of books. And I'm still using that same Kindle now. (Everyone's upgraded but me.) I use it a lot, and since I suffer from chronic dry eye and ocular rosacea, reading "regular" books for a long time makes my eyes burn. With the Kindle I can read for hours with no ill effects. No backlight. Resizable text. It's all good. I've gotten my money's worth out of it already.

    Still, yeah... no more of that early adopter stuff. Because of course, I just bought a regular Wii and then I hear they're coming out with the Wii U next year. Yup... I just can't seem to wait long enough, even if I wait for years. LOL

    But the Wii U is a completely different system than the Wii.

    It's like the DS and the 3DS.

    I know. My point was that next year there will be more options to have chosen from. Although I'm really happy with this system so far. I just found it funny that something like this always seems to happen to me.

    oh don't worry, we JUST bought a wii a little over a week ago, then i came on here today only to find out that there's gonna be a brand new wii system, not ever hearing about this before i looked it up on youtube, looks amazing, and i'm def looking forward to it, but, depending on the price, i plan on saving my money for a little while then buying it a little later, that way there won't be as many bugs and whatnot and it'll be cheaper. for example, we bought the wii at walmart for $134, where before it was $199 a long time ago. great price? i think yes!!! : D lol sorry this is so long btw.....

    The Wii was $250 even longer ago, lol. People can get quite the savings just by being patient, eh? =) I myself decided to wait for the 3DS' price to drop, so low and behold: I'm saving nearly $100 by waiting just a few months to purchase it.

    And don't worry about long posts. Lengthy posts are encouraged, my friend.
