GameDrift (whom we've never heard of) claims an anonymous Nintendo rep told them over the weekend that new Wii colors are coming this year. As you can imagine, details were sparse, but the tipster claims red and black are in the bag for sure and that we can expect those two -- in addition to others -- by the end of the year.

New colors for Wii were never a question of "if," only "when." After all, Nintendo released the above promotional image the same day they unveiled what was then called the Revolution at E3 2005. But it's unlikely such a small site has a mole deep within Kyoto or Redmond headquarters and their quick use of "confirmed" doesn't help their credibility either. Still, one can hope for Puke Green later this year, right?
