    Well if they do they make a new version of the wii, poeple who've bought a wii will only have to pay like $100 and trade in the old wii. (shit, we're going too far with this talk)

    The thing is, if you add up all the games, controllers, the console, and the GC stuff I've bought for my wii, you get:

    Wii - $250
    Wiiplay - $50
    Wiimotes x 2 - $80
    Nunchuck x 3 - $60
    2 Wii games - $100
    1GB SD card - $18 (on sale @ bestbuy)
    2 GC games - $60
    GC memory card - $10
    2 GC controllers - $30 (Shark branded cheap stuff)

    This adds up to $658 + TX 8% tax = $711

    The point is, I don't want to have to sell my Wii and go out and buy a new one. We have all sunk major money and time into our investment and it'd be insulting if they just left us in the dust.

    I feel the same way about my 360 and the new 360 Elite. The problem is, nintendo has a habit of completely dropping their old product when coming out with an "upgrade" version. You can see this in the GB-SP and the DS-Lite. They just totally dropped their old version. I currently have a 1st gen DS and can't get any accessories for it anymore...

    But almost all the accessories for the 1st gen no longer work and the ones for the 2nd gen don't work on the first. They're two very different sizes and shapes. So as it stands, I can't buy anything new (accessories) for my 1st gen and if I bought a 2nd gen none of the accessories that I DO have would work with it.

    I might add, I was looking at your sig, and you have the exact same Wii setup I do except I have 4 motes and 4 chucks. Same games and stuff. :-D

    i think if nintendo do that they could loose a few cutomers. Mainly because who wants to buy a wii, show faith in the system then a year or 2 down the line be told to get a new updated wii so you can watch a dvd or have some better graphics.....to be hnst with you....i would think twice.

    Yeah, I think the best idea (and also the most likely) is that, hardware wise, the wii itself will not change for years. I expect the option for external hard disks, and other usb peripherals will appear, as well as possibly 3rd party wiimotes and sensor bars if nintendo don't provide any of their own. One of the wiis selling points is its simplicity, it definitely doesnt need a variation of itself to complicate its marketing.

    I expect to see a newer, hi def wii in about 4-5 years.

    they will not make a "better" Wii like they did for the NDS and the NDS lite...that Nintendo only does the face lifts for handheld consoles (they did not d that with ethe n64 but they did with the gameboy; they did not do it to the Gamecube but they did it to the GBA .. get the drift?) anyhow, there were modchips out forgot which one that could make the Wii read DVD's .. that is why a Firmware update is all the Wii needs to play DVD movies. Also the current games that the Wii games are on are DVD.
    PM to add me to Wii and from there we can add different games!

    I speculate...

    that the next nintendo console will be called Wii2.. or rather the official title "WiiWii"

    The tag line is, "Nintendos WiiWii, now you're playing with Power"
