They will have multipul colors, they always do. As for the dvd playback, it should already have been dvd ready but thats up to nintendo, i think it would be a bad move to have one model thats dvd usable and another thats not. My guess though is that its software related and might show up in an upgrade, since the dvd rom should be able to play them.Originally Posted by RJU690
that would be kind of pointless in my opinion. Its possible though.2. I have heard talk of external hard drives as well.
The sensor bar is merely a device that shoots out infared light in which the camera located insde the wiimote uses to use the aiming function. I dont see why they would upgrade it, or how. Its already doing its job. Theres nothing more they can really do to it.3. Also, many on this forum have theorizied that Nintendo is developing an enhanced sensor bar.
no. right now the games are not made for that kind of resolution, nor is the system ready for it. I have a feeling nintendo's next system will use the wiimote and games but be HD capable. They are not planning on the wii being a long term system like the 360 and Ps3. Imagine the wii2 HD with updated graphics and backwards compatibility for wii1 games in about 5 years.4. Do you think Nintendo will offer another hardware revision that would allow the Wii to have HD output?
No, i think they will focus on attachments and rely on possible third party hardware.5. What do you think the likelyhood is that Nintendo will produce more accurate and improved Wii remotes in the future?
The elite is trying to compete with the ps3. The hardware revisions are there to promote its TIVO function. This is the main reason behind the elite.6. Will Wii offer new hardware revisions many years later such as the recent Xbox 360 Elite?
The Wii is a cheap and short term system. I would honestly consider it a prototype in which nintendo is testing out the market. They were not sure if the wiimote would be a success or not, so to reduce risk, they made a system they would not lose money on. Thats why the Wii is the only system to make a profit for unit sales. This is also the reason why its hardware is below current gen standards. The graphics are horrible compared to the 360 and Ps3. But, take heart, now that nintendo knows there is a market for the Wii approach to gaming, the next system will build upon what the prototype did. I wouldnt be suprised to see nintendo make a new system that they lose money per unit next time around, this would mean more advanced hardware. Current gen stuff.
They are trying desperately to prevent another gamecube and so they are taking a very careful approach that wont let them lose profit.
