Hey, this is just a funny thing, you know how the concept for Wii is really based off the success of the DS? And then we had the DS Lite come out, everything lighter and brighter. Well compare these old pictures of the Wiimote+Nunchuk from before the DS Lite, to the new pictures after the DS Lite! Also the old ones even seem a TAD bit bigger, so even it was inspired by size from DS to DS Lite with its change.
(Click to enlarge) You will notice the backround is lighter, the buttons/remote are lighter, and even the hand skin tone is lighter! I just found this funny, how much they base Wii off of the DS, and even more the DS Lite
