It’s a strange thing, but gamers across the world are turned on by strange aesthetics – particularly, black consoles. It can be argued that because the Atari 2600 – the first modern home gaming console and itself a spartan-black device – set the tone for gamers seeking out black versions of their favourite game systems.

The High Score Heartbreak: How the Wii Battery Pack On Your Controller Dies at the Worst Times!

Back in 2005, when the Wii, Xbox 360, and Playstation 3 were poised to hit the entertainment market, who would have believed that the Wii would dominate the other two game platforms in worldwide sales? With its lower resolution and quirky game controller, all of the gaming elite doomed Nintendo for the bronze medal in the competition for market supremacy.

Now, the Wii and its innovative game controller has become a cultural phenomenon. The famed “Wiimote,” together with the nunchuck controller, makes for an amazing gaming experience, giving you wireless, interactive play with your favorite Wii games.
