Fresh Wii 'by 2011'
Rumor of the week
The World Wide Wibble is all excited about a rumor that there will be a new Wii in the shops by 2011 .
The blog, What They Play, claims to have heard from multiple sources in the game development and publishing community that Nintendo is currently showing early presentations of its next home console hardware.
Apparently set to hit the market 'by 2011,' the device is said to be the true 'next generation' Nintendo console. In other words it will have the same high-definition capabilities as its Xbox 360 and PS3 rivals and a greater emphasis on digitally distributed and backwardly compatible content.
Nintendo said that it does not comment on rumors and it will be a long time before it does, we expect. Current feeling is that we will not hear a squeak out of the Wii factory until Game Development Conference in March, 2009, or E3 next July.
