New console, Wii HD, set to launch in 2011 say new sources
While we’re all busy speculating about new DS redesign rumors, the next Wii system, Wii HD, may already be in development. According to John Davison, a well-known industry insider, Wii HD would hit the market in 2011. With Wii HD, Nintendo would be putting “a greater emphasis on digitally distributed and backwardly compatible content” in addition to a graphical overhaul. Davison suggests that R&D costs at Nintendo have been rising, thus that issue would be something Nintendo would fix with Wii HD.
