Rumors last week of a black Wii bundle complete with Wii Sports Resort and the Wii MotionPlus Peripheral are true, and gamers will be able to get a hold of the new bundle this week.

This new ensemble hits stores May 9, and it will be available for the standard Wii price of $199. Of course, like the current Wii configuration, the bundle will include Wii Sports. Apart from the sleek and sexy black Wii, a traditional white Wii bundle is also available.

It's great to see Nintendo give great value with every Wii purchased, and now that more people will have the Wii MotionPlus peripheral, hopefully we'll start to see more developers incorporate its use in their games.
