That's a lot of value

After a recent heads-up that North America was due to receive the black Wii console some six months after Europe, we've now had the first photographic proof that the machine is on its way in no time with this shot from Gamestop.

Appearing to mimic the same bundle available elsewhere, your $200 will nab you a Wii, Wii Sports and Sports Resort with MotionPlus, with every accessory rendered in a lovely dark hue.

The advert makes no mention of a release date as it was clearly intended to be displayed after launch, but if Gamestop stores are receiving them now we can only speculate the machine will be available in a very short space of time indeed. More news as it happens.
