    Go Nintendo points to French gaming blog ActuJV which claims to have information from an "inside source" concerning Nintendo and its attempt to hide the real graphical power of the Wii. Perhaps to capture even more attention as we approach a final launch date, rumor has it Nintendo will take the gaming world by storm by revealing the real goods behind their system. According to ActuJV's source, this is what has been goin' down:

    Nintendo has been playing us the fool all along. They have been showing us trailers for games that have deliberately downgraded graphics compared to what the Wii can actually do. This is to create an element of surprise for the press during Nintendo's next media event.

    maybe made up, but wow it would be cool if it was true

    I cant see this being true, i'd like it to be.. but nah..

    These last few months before launch are used to gather as much exposure and momemtum for the console as possible, i dont think they'd risk that by only releasing sup-bar trailers and demos.

    Plus I don't think it's a very good marketing plan. I mean say I'm saving up for a PS3 and I have enough money for the PS3, an extra controller, and two games. Then I find out the Wii is going to have awsome graphics power, I'm still going to get the PS3 because it's not much of a difference, but if I knew it's power in the beggining, I'd probably go for it more likely.

    the wii is too small, but technologies came far and nintendo has been in the gaming industry forever. it will be another great addition to the wii tho.

    i don't think its true but it would be a good suprise. If the wii was supposedly to have a lot of power, they would have showed its capabilities in the begining and since all the next-gen consoles would be pretty much equal in the graphics it could dish out and more people will see that it doens't matter about power since all three are the same, then people will be focusing on games and gameplay.

    The graphics r "good enough", I mean to have everything the Wii's going to have w/ those graphics?....that enough to sell me, it already has.

    And did anyone read the quote I just posted? "NINTENDO ALREADY TOLD US that the hardware being used at E3 was not finalized."

    I would believe this if it wasn't for one thing: The size of the Wii. It's just tooo small to have graphical power equal to the 360/PS3's.

    I agree with you, the wii is just too small, and anyway I think the graphics are good as they are, why do they need to be improved?

    but the wii's technology will be stable, unlike the ps3's.
    assuring everyone that it will bring what it promises, and it also provides easy game development for developers

    Have you ever opened a computer? You really don't need to though, there are enough powerful laptops to show that the size of a case only plays a small part in computer technology.

    ^ You do have a point but miniaturization does add a bit of extra $$$, unless they can really fit all that under $250USD - well, expected price, low cost console. If there is a better graphics chip in the Wii, that structure itself (was it 3 full DVD case) still seems unlikely for an efficient cooling system. We're looking at a CPU, GPU, PSU, Optical drive... etc. Have you felt the heat coming out of a computer PSU or even an Xbox360, that thing is hot! Now, just add in those other heat creating device.. doesn't seem like the construction of a Wii can handle the heat. Oh, and I forgot to add, the wireless chip will have some heat too, for some odd reason I can actually feel more heat coming from my wireless card (on my laptop) oppose to the CPU area.

    Tough I doubt that the wii will have any HDTV resolutions available I have to disagree with you guys about the possibility to cram a powerful gpu inside the wii, its totally possible! anyone remember dreamcast?? it had a liquid cooling system crammed into a really small machine. I don't know if it was heatpipes or a closed water cooling system but doing a closed water cooling inside the wii that has sufficient power to cool down the cpu+gpu+mem is totally possible, taking out lower HDTV resolutions should not be too hard.

    One taught that I had about ATI:s comment about the hollywood having enough power to do so much more than Nintendo is showing us........ twin view for the HMD?????
    If they where to make one it could not use normal 3dglasses like nvidia have cause these need at minimum a 100Hz monitor and most people have a normal 50Hz or 60Hz tv and LCD displays dont work at all with this technology.

    So they would need to build a transparent LCD in the HMD that would work palallell with the tv/LCD, thus needing more GPU power.
