We told you so

We brought you news of a rumour that a red Wii was coming to Europe, but now we can officially confirm that lucky Europeans will be able to buy the console before the month was out. Not a home console kind of gamer? Then you'll be pleased that the red DSi XL is on the way too.

The red Wii will be available from October 29th and comes bundled with Wii Remote Plus, meaning it has MotionPlus built-in, as well as a copy of New Super Mario Bros. Wii and the "original" Donkey Kong pre-installed, though it's still unclear if the "original" part refers to the NES conversion or the arcade original.

Purchasers of the red DSi XL will not only get a limited edition console featuring iconic power-up graphics along the console's top, they'll also get a copy of DS romp New Super Mario Bros. to play on it. The big red machine will launch on October 22nd.

There's no word yet on prices for these – remember, Nintendo does not specify prices for hardware – but we'll keep you updated.
