Okay I heard of the Wii HD it's a rumor
Though from a few more sources I heard that Nintendo will most likely release it in 2010 instead of 2011
Mostly because it makes sense...
The Wii HD is supposed to get
-the ATI "Hollywood HD" GPU with 128MB Dedicated GDDR3 VRAM (Made with 40nm CMOS)
-a faster 1.6GHz IBM PowerPC "Evolution" Processor implementing Hyper-Threading (Made with 45nm CMOS)
-256MB main memory
and also will be introducing hard drive solutions
-20GB or 40GB IDE Hard Drive (connected via USB inside)
Also the same 512MB built-in NAND flash memory
2x USB 2.0 ports
Wireless G module
HDMI Port and AV Port
One thing I heard though is that the Wii HD may not output Full 1080p HD instead 720p HD and 1080i because it's GPU is not powerful enough to process 1080p HD but other sources say that the ATI Hollywood HD GPU will also be able to upconvert to 1080p
Anybody think these specs are true?
Also that a close 2010 release is possible (and also reasonable)?
To me it looks real...

Also other rumors also suggest that instead of a new "Wii HD" console they will come out with a upconverter (upconverting the Wii through a upconverter is already possible but barely anyone knows this nor do they try)
The upconverter will be a low cost upconverter that will upconvert the Wii to 720p or maybe 1080p (maybe) through Component (most likely supplied)
and also instead of opting for built-in hard drives Nintendo may support external hard drives (but then again due to piracy they may not)
What's the hard drives for?
IDK, I think some sources say that the hard drive is to store games not only for quicker load times but for easier access to games (allowing users to back them up)
Also some sources say if they opt for the built-in hard drive piracy problem may increase but many Wii users won't really be modifying their Wiis so Nintendo won't really lose that much from piracy
