To the diehard fans the Nintendo Wii is the gold standard for console gaming, and soon they’ll have a chance to show their system at least in chrome if not actual gold. A new outer shell, the I-Case, will be available at the end of the month from XCM for $37.99, giving the console that extra high-tech look. And if the shiny cyber-look isn’t your thing, alternate colors include Crystal Blue and Black – you know because a black console seems to be all the rage. The company claims everyone from “young games to your Gran” can install the I-Case. We’ll find out sometime in a few weeks whether that’s the truth or if I’ll have to go buy a new Wii.
