i have been foiled by england AGAIN. not that i am a huge wii supporter, but i hate it when one country gets something and another doesn’t. you know? like do i have time to fuck off to japan and pick up some super limited edition console? hell no. can i jet off to england and pick up this limited edition wii? of course not. i can’t possibly find the time to do such things. or leave the babies. little_nerdxo maybe, but she refuses to handle live crickets for the geckos, and that is the only food that those innocent children eat. so as you can see, i am at an impasse.
many of you probably remember when i practically had to be medicated when it turned out i couldn’t get the special edition of alone in the dark: inferno. sure, i could get it from ebay uk, but between the hassle, general unreliability of couriers, etc, i decided not to get it. there has been an ache in my heart ever since.
BAH. as part of nintendo’s big anniversary, they are releasing a red wii in england. and japan. here’s a snippet of what we across the pond are missing out on:
Nintendo DSi XL Special Edition Pack available across Europe from 22nd October 2010 which includes a red Nintendo DSi XL branded with character icons and a copy of New Super Mario Bros.
On 29th October 2010 the New Super Mario Bros. Wii Pack will launch across Europe including a red Wii, a red Wii Remote Plus, a red Nunchuk and three games. As well as New Super Mario Bros. Wii and Wii Sports, the bundle will also include the original edition of Donkey Kong pre-installed on the Wii, in homage to Mario’s first ever appearance.
