Nintendo Wii 2: A new Nintendo console – maybe the Wii 2 – could be unveiled this summer, according to one source. What would a new Nintendo console look like?
A new Nintendo console, possibly the Nintendo Wii 2, is already in the works, and could be unveiled as soon as this summer. So say the folks over at Game Informer, who predict Nintendo will demo a rejiggered, next-generation Wii console at the annual E3 expo in June. Game Informer puts the launch date of this new Nintendo console at 2012, and reports that the company is already "showing publishers the system" in an effort to rope in some of the big-name houses.
"We have confirmed with multiple sources that this new home system is capable of running games at HD resolutions," writes Matthew Kato of Game Informer. "There are conflicting reports, however, as to whether its graphics will be comparable to those on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 – meaning it could surpass or fall short of those systems. Either way it will offer competitive specifications."
