Thanks for the update and passing this information on to us. 25GB discs would be nice... maybe the ability to ply blu-ray discs.
They will call it the Wii^2 AKA the WiiWii
One thing Nintendo does that is so smart with these is release them in the summer. M$ and Sony seem to like to release mid fall. While that may grab some Christmas business I would bet Nintendo gets gotta have now's, birthdays, out for summer, back to school, and Christmas market as well. There advertising also has a long time to take hold. Someone could even put one of them on layaway for there kids for Christmas, and pay 10 a month, then buy 2 more games with it and have a bang up layout at a Christmas tree very easily.
Hmm, i have a feeling its going to be bluray. That would be interesting. Definitely more harder to burn games. I hope they make it backwards compatible. The only console thats still on my list is a wii... my mum enjoys a game or two and shes been insisting on buying a wii haha.
I love my Wii so I'll definitely be interested to see what Nintendo has to show at E3. Thanks for the update on the rumored new features!
So very unlikely. The R&D costs would prohibit Nintendo from using any format other than bluray, and they certainly arent going to use bluray. 25 GB without a harddrive would = large load times with no way to get rid of them. 25 GB would also = high development costs, which Nintendo avoids like the plague.
The ONLY reason why the Wii exceeded expectations is that they had the motion sensing controller. It was something that only they had. But now, not only are they not alone, they are the WORST of the three. Take away that advantage and the next Nintendo console (and stop calling it the Wii 2, there is no indication that that is what it is.) will wind up like the Dreamcast. A console that tried to jump the market to get some initial sales, but then when the other much more powerful systems came out a year later, no one bought them anymore.
