2012 Olympics: Europe Wii “Limited Blue” Bundle

With the veritable onslaught on the gaming world coming form the two big players, there isn’t really much room for anyone else. For the purchasing consumer it seems that you have to fit into one of two categories, either Sony’s PlayStation 3 or Microsoft’s Xbox 360. Both companies have pretty much copied each other when releasing upgrades to their consoles, what with the PS Move and the Xbox Kinect, both tussling for the number one spot.

But let’s not forget the third place viral, the one for the part time gamer. Nintendo’s Wii set the ground work when it was released back in 2006, its wireless control only heightened with the introduction of Wii PLUS to enhance the game play. Now while Nintendo might seem happy to cater for its chosen audience, it sometimes wants to inject something fresh. This is when we see limited edition deals like the red bundle at the end of 2010 with New Super Mario Bros which was to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Super Mario Bros. Along with this, accessories have been made available such as the Wii Balance Board, plus this year the new Wii Family Edition will be available in Europe as part of a Christmas bundle with Wii Remote plus, Wii Party and Wii Sports.

Now according to Sean Buckley over at Engadget, Nintendo have just announced a blue limited edition for the European market to celebrate the 2012 London Olympics. Named “Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games,” this will be available from November 18th. Presently, we are a little unsure as to its retail price, but on finding out, we will of course update you.

The bundle will include the blue console, a copy of the game, Wii remote, nunchuck and stickers.

Next year, gamers will be able to pick up Nintendo’s brand new gaming console that of the Wii U which was announced at the E3 gaming conference, to find out more on this click here.
