Wii 2 Specs Leaked?

Posted by GG Goblin On October - 29 - 2009

Are these the specs for the Wii 2? Personally, I am not sure, but make your own mind up.

 
Maxconsole.net and Logic-Sunrise.com have exclusively revealed what they say are the specs for the Wii 2. Their source is allegedly an employee of Nintendo of France. The leak contains the following details:

 
- The Wii2 system will feature a Blu-Ray drive with a secondary aim of stopping piracy.
- 1080P and lower resolutions will be supported, for blu-ray movies and games.
- The release date is scheduled for third quarter of 2010.
- The release will be worldwide and on the same day for all countries.
- A scheme will be available in which it is possible to trade in the original Wii for a cheaper price on the new Wii 2.

 
It is also stated that Nintendo want to make a worldwide announcement only one month before the launch date. The original article can be read here – http://www.maxconsole.net/?mode=news&newsid=37744

    Blu-Ray? Really!? This would be quite a change of tack for ninty if true, would be real interesting if they can do this for around the same price as the present Wii.

    Well, if it is true, and the Blu-Ray can play movies, and they price it around the same as the current Wii, then the PS3 will be in trouble.

  4. Dan Said,

    nice info :) – i’m more considering the limited edition black one however, those changes to the Wii don’t really make it more attractive to me, 1080p? Blue-Ray? – pfft, got a PS3 already!

    Thanks for the rumor – handy to know, especially the trade in

    That’s not really anything new – games shops do that for every new console!
