    According to wii.nintendolife, Is the Wii ready for HD? that depends on who you ask.

    It is inevitable that a HD enabled Wii is coming. The question that we should be pondering is, when is it coming? It would rather dumb if Super Wii/Wii 2/Wii HD came out in 2010. If it came out in 2010 then 360 & PS3 could learn what it'll do & build from it, essentially out performing it. I believe it should come out when the other Big 2 are planning to release their consoles, 2012.

    Nintendo has noticed that more HD television sets are at home than they were in 2006 at the launch of Nintendo Wii. I don't know what Ryu 27 is talking about because XBOX 360, when it originally came out, didn't even have an HDMI Port. That, hopefully, is what Nintendo is going to do. I only agree with Ryu 27 if Nintendo decided to make other model versions of the same console. Like Nintendo GBA, GBA SP, GBA Micro, NDS, NDS Lite, NDSi, or Sony's PSP 1001, 2001, 3001, PSPgo, PS3, PS3 Slim.

    *Facepalm*

    Why do people ask stupid questions like this? Try thinking about something for a moment...

    Wii games, utilizing the current Wii's hardware, are slated for 2010, 2011, and in some cases, 2012 releases. Now, if they were to make a Wii HD, they sure as hell wouldn't be releasing it while their big-hit titles like Other M and Red Steel 2 were coming out on an inferior machine. And no, they won't be making "a Wii HD verison too", it just doesn't work that way. Nobody would port about 20 AAA titles from an inferior machine to a superior machine because they wanted to release it alongside each other, that would be stupid.

    Now, this means, at the latest we have 2012 to look to for a Wii HD, which is inevitable because of the Wii's success (though, personally, I kind of wanted a brand new console with a real gaming pad, but those days are over methinks), however, because of the Wii's success, you may want to consider something....Why? What point would there be to releasing one any time soon? Nintendo probably makes a 70% markup on each Wii they sell, as they are essentially selling something less powerful than an original Xbox, and its sales figures show no signs of slowing down. The only time they will pull a hat trick and roll out a new Wii is when the current Wii slows down and they want to monopolize on the success of the first by releasing a "fresh, new, HD Wii that plays all your old Wii and GC games!".

    Long story short, such speculations are stupid. There is not going to be a Wii HD till at LEAST 2012, and that is a very long time away, so don't bother worrying over it.
