    Quite the rumor there, not too sure about it myself. I know a rumor is a rumor but don't write it off right away just because of the name of the site :lol:

    :lol: unconfirmedsources.com. I doubt Nintendo would integrate Blu-Ray into the Wii as it could put casuals off if it were pricey. Next generation Nintendo console will, I'm sure, have the same graphics as current generation PS3 and 360 as the price of the technology should have by then dropped. I am looking forward to seeing Nintendo's next ace in the hole but at the same time, don't want to see the Wii discontinued any time soon.

    lol, no. You are wrong. Athlon 64 X2 is like a subcategory of AMD processors, such as Pentium 3, Pentium 4, etc. They all have different speeds, so basically the cheaper the faster. Guess you got a crappy processor

    I am sure that the next wii will be completely backwards compatibily with our current wii games and what not just like ngc i dont think they will ditch the use of ngc controllers eather because some games need to or still do use them.

    I have an athlon 64 x2 on my PC and it's ok.

    they said the next generation of the processors anyway so they're prbly a lot better.

    Is this article stating that nintendo is going to come out with a Wii with blu-ray and an updated processor? That would kind of suck, current wii owners would be ****ed over if they start making games that are only able to run on the better proccessors. . . however if they taking about the next generation I'm all for it.

    Wait so they're going to come out with an upgraded Wii that makes the current one obsolete? Great.

    Actually maybe my processor is fine, I don't really know how to measure how good or bad it is. I think my graphic card is what sucks balls.

    i hope this is not true. I just got my Wii 2 months ago and will be pissed if they release this and make mine obsolete :mad5: (unless its about 3 years from now)

    Don't trust what im about to say, due to the fact that I don't work for Nintendo,

    If they were ever going to add on a 'Blu-Ray' player onto the Wii console, I'm 99% sure that they would more or less revamp the entire system and then re-do it. Fixing previous flaws, and adding new ideas, such as Blu Ray. If you expect Nintendo to magically whip out this new DVD drive onto existing consoles, I wouldn't hold your breath.

    I personally wouldn't expect anything that major until the next console comes out, and by then, there'll be something bigger and better they can add.

    Blu-ray does not enhance graphics... It just holds more space. So in a game sense, Nintendo could create their own disc that holds 50 gigs. Grapic Card (GPU) makes better graphics and the processor (CPU) executes the programs. The better the processor the faster it runs.

    Atleast I think its something like that lol... But what I do know is Blu-ray does not dictate graphics, it just holds more space.

    The AMD processors are best in the market for gaming because they use multiple busses instead of one like intel.

    ok so I used to be part of the nintendo Nsider forum and over there we had a discussion about the next disc nintendo would be using. Nothing has been confirmed, but nintendo seemed to have been making a deal with a company that invented a holographic disc in early 2007. The holographic disc is capable of holding 300gb of memory. As you can see thats a lot more than what blu ray can hold.

    I believe that nintendo is planning something huge next generation.Also I dont believe that nintendo will upgrade wiis with bluray. Its pointless and would destroy any hope for the wii consumer to come back for more.

    If Nintend release another console like that, i will feel so ripped off. You shold be able to recieve one for a small amount of money if you can provide a console serial number of an original Wii..Otherwise there will be some angry customers.
