Nintendo Wii 2: Blu-ray and 2011 Release Rumors

It has now been almost fours years since Nintendo released the Wii, there is no-doubt that the launch has been successful, however in my opinion it needs to be updated with a model which suits today’s high definition televisions etc.

According to a recent article posted on ITProPortal it seems as if a new Nintendo Wii could arrive in 2011 with a Blu-ray drive and 1080p output, at the moment there is no official word from Nintendo, however Vicki Blake from GirlGamersSuck claims that a reliable source has pretty much confirmed this.

Personally I think that if Nintendo were to release a Wii 2 next year the timing would be perfect, that is as long as Kinect for Xbox 360 and PlayStation Move do not completely overshadow Nintendo’s offerings.

What would you want from the Nintendo Wii 2?

BLURAY GAMES

@fgrillo3030

Internal Hard Drive would be nice. The limitations of the scarce amount of system memory and having to rely on SD cards and those shortcomings is annoying. Also, some games take SDHC while others don't. That combined with 1080 output and a Blu-ray drive would make Wii 2 a worthy competitor.

What I would want from a wii 2 is improoved graphics and more good games. NOT THAT IM SAYING THAT I DONT LIKE THE WII BECAUSE I LIKE THE WII ALOT. but the wii just needs to improove in graphics just a little bit and its fine.

Wii is the best in motion controll of course, we need more titles using the great Wii motion plus! For graphics I´m ok with my Xbox 360 Elite. 😉

It definitely needs a normal control option for games.. No one wants every game to be motion controlled especially when you just want to relax and play some video games. This is what is so good about the ps3 move
