A new version? I higly doubt it. This 'new version' will likely be a range of Wii consoles in colours other than white, same hardware, software, same everthing. The next Nintendo console won't be out for at least another five years anyway. With Nintendo Wiis starting to come in stock in bigger numbers now you can easily buy one now. Plus there are many great games coming out soon. I personally think the Wii is great (I got one the day it was released, December 8th 2006)! I hope what you just read helps!
