Was it smart to market the WiiU with largely the familiar white color of the Wii, only to make the black version the "preferred" or "better" kind of value? I wonder if it was intentional to get the casual people that won't be downloading much, or maybe even using the system that regularly, to go for the familiar color while using black to "rebrand" the Wii as a more serious gaming solution. I mean, Nintendo Land is kind of doing the Wii Sports mission of "Look what the system can do!" but without the casual appeal of general sports. Instead, it's catering to gamer nostalgia and/or hype as the Nintendo seniors get excited at the idea of a new F-Zero or the upcoming Animal Crossing when they see those characters. Brands that grandma and grandpa probably won't get amped about, so they can just pick up something else with the system, or I don't know. I still don't know what a casual gamer would want a WiiU for, at launch.
