Same here. I got the Basic because I wanted it in white. All my electronics are black and it's getting a bit boring (plus white seems more Nintendo-y than black imo, even though it does look nice).

White looks whimsical, inviting and nintendo-y(even though i personally would of threw in some blue to mix things up a bit) like you said, even though black would of stood out more Vs the wii since it was already white to begin with. but as is, Black doesn't have that nintendo Zing to it, it feels like Nintendo just released it in black to grab them Hardcorez maturez gamers attention. :p Black would of been fine had they pulled an N64 and spiced things up by throwing in another color instead of making it one bland streamlined glossy black blob. I also much prefer the look of the white gamepad vs the black, even though black does contrast better with the screen! :p

The Wii U, PS4, One generation has the most boring safe console design in video game history. Consoles used to have personality, they were striking, and exciting, they weren't afraid to add color or be unique.

Hell, even the Wii U's verticle console stand(s) is junk....two tiny pillars vs the nice long grey stand for the wii.....

Yeah...The White Wii U definitly looks better imo. :*

I would love to see them bring back the Play it Loud colors this gen. If you know what I am talking about.

So i take it TasukiMan's craving a little Super Tonic Mean & Green Mutagen Kiwi Wii U edition?lol We'll probably see a few new colors down the road, but i doubt Nintendo's going to go crazy like they did with the N64 and GameBoy Color.

Also, i can't seem to find these little verticle Wii U stands anywhere. Why aren't they sold seperately rather than being bundled with every Black Wii U console?

Red, blue, and green would no doubt be the most popular besides what they have now.
I could see Nintendo releasing more colors if/when the Wii U starts being popular.
They want people to be able to choose whatever color they want.

EDIT: Also having different colors available would make the Wii U more distinguishable in comparison to the Xbox One/PS4's black only choice.

@Waveboy: Lol sadly during that era I only had the black N64, while it would be nice to see them give those options I agree with you and I doubt that they will go crazy like that again too. Of course they could come out with the Spice Orange color that they had for the GC. Personally I would love to see the Platinum color come back that they had for the GC and GBA. If they did come out with that color I will trade my black one in for the platinum in a heartbeat.

I got the white one because I overestimated how much game data 8 gb could store...But I can just get a hard drive, so it's alright I guess.

Give me snacks. Come on. Do it.

The deluxe version... Though I was close to getting the basic version. I prefer the white Wii U because it doesn't show the fingerprints so badly.

Totally agree. I wish Nintendo would splash a bit more color onto its consoles again (though I suppose they're wary about the whole "kiddy image" thing...) I miss the days when consoles (both home and handheld) looked like fun, unique toys. Now it seems they all have to look like serious gadgets for boring businessmen. They look very slick and classy, but they don't really look fun.

The Wii U should have launched in red, really - I mean what makes you think of Mario more than that?

I don't like the color red at all. I doesn't tell me Mario, it tells me other things I don't like. I like the black.

hahaha. Well you said it better than i did! :p And I for one love the look of the Indigo Gamecube and it's super unique controller design(awful micro d-pad aside. However i do miss the unusual Big A/bean button layout).This was the last time Nintendo got creative & groovy with their console creations. They're playing it very safe(Although the white Wii in it's grey stand does look pretty nice) these days in both Software(cough, Mario!, cough) and Hardware design....Then again, the original Aqua Blue 3DS is a sight to behold, I think it's absolutely gorgeous with it's 80's cake layered sparkly aqua blue/black finish. B-) it still retains that exciting & unique toy-kind of look wile giving it a sleak modern-esque finish.

Still, the Wii U looks miles better than the predictable Black & grey shiny twins > aka the Modem Checkerboard XBOX One and Playstation 4 heating ventilator.

In red, with blue trousers and yellow buttons, with brown little boots as the stand holder. I'd buy it. :*

Deluxe gives you the 10% back on all eShop purchases - definitely worth it. Not sure if the basic unit gave the same deal?

Yeah, until December 2014...
