Huhut nostaa päätä että Wiin seuraaja ilmestyisi vuoden 2010 kolmannella neljänneksellä. Nyt olisi kyseessä sitten jo ajanmukainen 1080p tukeva BluRay-konsoli.
Huhu Linkki.It’s something that we all knew was inevitable. Back in 2007 everyone’s favorite industry analyst and rumor monger, Michael Pachter, announced that he believed a HD-enabled Wii 2 would be on store shelves within a couple of years. The rumors were exacerbated further in 2008 with Nintendo’s Global President, Satoru Iwata, stating that the Wii 2 was being worked on. Thus, it makes perfect sense that details have just been leaked regarding the tentatively named Wii 2 and the possibility of its release in 2010.
MaxConsole.net stated late last week that they had received news from an anonymous Nintendo of France marketing employee detailing specifications of a Wii 2 that include full 1080P support for games as well as a Blu-ray drive. The suggestion being that Blu-ray would be to help combat piracy as well as presumably to provide more modern technology for the system. The leak also suggested that the console would be released in the third quarter of 2010; suggesting a launch just in time for the Christmas rush. It all sounded a little too perfect for Nintendo fans, but according to MaxConsole.net the source has provided accurate news from various insiders in the past, so it is plausible.
The rumor has also been compounded by streaming media analyst, Dan Rayburn, who explained in his blog that Nintendo is in the testing stages of bringing the Netflix service to the Wii. Rayburn did however emphasize that, "Nintendo is also considering holding off on the Netflix service until they release their next generation Wii HD unit in early 2010." Early 2010 sounds rather ambitious compared to the previous insider rumor but it does sound a lot more likely that a new Wii iteration could be on its way shortly.
