Confirmed: Black Wii arrives alongside new Wii Sports Resort/MotionPlus bundle

Infendo

blackwiiBlack, white and bundled is the phrase of the moment at Nintendo these days, as the industry leading company prepares to offer a additional color and a new bundle to consumers shopping for a Wii later this month.

We knew about the black Wii, but today Nintendo tipped the Infendo mailbox with a press release that detailed a new Wii Sports Resort and MotionPlus bundle that will also feature the venerable Wii Sports. The price will remain $200, which is the same as the baseline Xbox 360, although that system, while respectable in its own right, lacks motion controls or a pack-in game (weird aside: I miss the days when pack-in games were the norm).

The $200 bundle, white or black, arrives May 9.
