Red consoles should be the standard color.

It's the 25th anniversary of Nintendo's entry into the North American market (see the story about the NES turning 25 here), and the video game company wants you to see red.

Launching next month are red-colored versions of the Wii and DSi XL, and we'd have to say that they look pretty spiffy.

The Red Wii Bundle celebrates the 25th anniversary of the original Super Mario Bros. game. The bundle includes New Super Mario Bros. Wii and a new red Wii Remote Plus controller, in addition to all the other included items, like Wii Sports and a red Nunchuk controller. It will be available while supplies last at a suggested retail price of $199.99.

For portable gamers looking for the biggest DS they can get, there will be a Red Nintendo DSi XL Bundle that's branded with iconic Super Mario Bros.-themed graphics. The bundle comes with Mario Kart DS and will be available while supplies last at a suggested retail price of $179.99.

Nintendo also announced that the new Wii Remote Plus with built in MotionPlus will be available from now on in all Wii hardware packages and bundles, as well as sold separately at a suggested retail price of $39.99. Nintendo will also have a bundle for the new Wiimote as well, packing in FlingSmash for $10 more to a price of $49.99.
