A Wii HD has been rumored for quite some time, but speculation recently increased when analyst Michael Pachter said that he is “absolutely convinced” that a Wii HD system was on the way and after John Davison seemed positive that it would launch in 2011. Shigeru Miyamoto was recently interviewed by 3sat, and of course, one of the topics which was discussed are the Wii HD rumors.
Miyamoto explained, “…I’m afraid we cannot confirm what we are doing today. But the fact of the matter is that technology is evolving all the time and in Japan, for example…All the analog broadcast will be stopped and shifted into the digital broadcasting. So many things are taking place and we are working in terms of the changes of the technologies all the time.”
