Nintendo Wii 2

There were some ongoing rumors that Nintendo, one of the most influential companies in the world when it comes to the video games industry, is currently on the works with the next generation of the popular gaming console Nintendo Wii.The next generation Nintendo Wii or the Wii 2 is supposedly as close to commercial launch as 2011!

While Nintendo has not confirmed or denied these latest Wii ‘rumors’, you can be sure that something is surely in the works. And Nintendo may simply be keeping mum over the issue, to take gamers all over the world by surprise and hence add to the novelty value of the Wii.

Nintendo Wii 2 is going to address all the issues that will prevent it from grabbing an even greater market share than the first version. Maxconsole was the very first to have leaked about this upcoming Nintendo Wii 2 and apparently, the leaked information came from a very reliable source from Nintendo, France.

Based on this leaked information that is quite limited only, the included specs are the following:

* Comes with a built-in Blu-ray drive that is intended to partly prevent piracy
* Supports 1080p games and movies
* Comes with an HD output port

Certainly Nintendo is aware of the fact that Blu-ray as a optical media has not been able to make the sort of impact it was touted to. Moreover, the future of console gaming is digital downloads from online stores. So, perhaps this is just an option rather than a major feature in the Wii 2.

If Nintendo is really planning this HD Wii, it will have to bring out the product soon, because if the price of the PS3 drops below $299, Nintendo will have a tough time in putting a competitive price tag on the Wii. Add to that the fact that the PlayStation Move Controller is coming soon to give the same motion controlled gaming experience to users as the Wii, and you have Nintendo between a rock and a hard place. Hopefully they have a trick or two up their sleeves!
