    Nothing special about the internals according to one site, however, this is interesting:
    A Wii with Blu-ray and 1080p support? Sounds like I'm in :D
    And Nintendo is said to be releasing special information one month before the official release. Wonder what it could be?

    More details here: http://www.maxconsole.net/?mode=news&newsid=37744

    Is home brew illegal on Wii?...it's the only way you can make legal backups of your games.
    Sounds like I'm in too seeing as I just got my 1080p TV!

    I look at all these specs, no these aren't specs, this is just . . . . . nothing, if it said some actual technical info then I would say it specs.

    this is what you would expect, this is nothing but opinions.

    maxconsole is a troll/fanboy fun world, you can't expect valid news from maxconsole, unless its from somewhere else.

    Wii trade-in, nice touch. Needless to say it'll need to have support for existing VC/WiiWare (as well as a lot more storage!)

    Can't find the inspiration to care. I had my Wii for about a month before deciding that I'd never touch one again. If you ask me, I'm about ready for the PC2 :D It's gonna kick ass

    I love the wii, the games are fun and they are getting some good ones. I like the Wii 2 with the specs but Homebrew isn't really illegal. It is what you can do so easily with the Wii that is, which many of us have done :)

    Homebrew is a volation of Wii's terms of service which states the Wii can't be modified. Why do you think they keep releasing updates that plug the holes which were previously used to sneak Homebrew in? Nintendo obviously won't prosecute you for using Homebrew channel but at some point, they could disable certain features to all those that use it.

    I have no reason to believe what is listed is accurate. Bluray requires a potent GPU and that's one of the areas Nintendo has always passed on. Nintendo is also not very likely to purchase a license for Bluray seeing as they didn't even do it for DVD support on the Wii.


    Trade-in program? Unlikely. Consoles are almost always sold at a loss and the price point they do sell at is to recoup some of those expenses. The only way I could see a trade-in program being viable is if it a "green" effort by Nintendo to not generate electronic waste from old Nintendos. Perhaps "cap and trade" legislation in certain countries makes it cheaper for them to process old consoles than sell new.

    I do not understand so is this a new console or a revision like the PS3 Slim?

    Thats not specs that just a list of sort of wants or what it could haves. HD and Blu Ray are stuff anyone could have made up.

    The wii cannot be modified for modification of code is highly illegal. Cant stop people doing that tho rofl.

    Is this the Wii HD ? I thought it was meant to be a rehash of the old system, not a new console?

    Same shit, new name :(


    PS: lol @ the games possibly being on BD. They barely fill a single layer DVD-R at the moment:roll:

    I guess for now the system is rumored to be a new built system. Although everywhere has mixed feelings on it.

    IF this is true than it would have to be a whole new system. The ATI "Hollywood" chip is not capable of HD resolutions. I also highly doubt this is real and more wishful thinking. Also the "Broadway" chip would become a bottleneck to anything more powerful than the "Hollywood". The bottom line is this would HAVE to be a new build.

    Hardware is nothing without software, case in point, the Wii. Only a few good gems compared to 360, PS3 and PC.

    I was just saying it in general about the thread, sure the Wii has sold crap loads but its software library has a few too many mini-game based titles.

    Yeah sorry I was thinking about Wii Ware, so let us just jump down my throat for that Ford. Either way, there is a link on yahoo stating the same thing. So much for ya'lls shit aint real thing. Now I don't know about the trade in program as I don't remember seeing that on the yahoo page. But specs seem to be a good way to go. Oh and the newest updated doesn't block Homebrew, so uhm....anywho ;)

    I think it is capable of HD resolution's for movies, not gaming though. What I think they are adding to this is HD movie capability but I could be wrong, i'm not even sure this statement is understandable.

    I had a 360 for a couple of years and there weren't too many good games for it. I would take a wii over a 360 or a PS3. The 360 and PS3 just have a bunch of watered down crap that I could be playing a better version of on my PC.
