    We've just received some exclusive news and specs on the Wii 2 via <a href="http://www.Logic-Sunrise.com" target="_blank">Logic-Sunrise.com</a>) (though a Nintendo of France marketing employee). The leaked specs denote the Wii 2 will get a Blu-ray drive (mainly to stop piracy), but will also support 1080P for games as well as movies. The new system is due out during the third quarter of next year and there will be the option to trade in old Wii's!

    <center><img src="http://www.maxconsole.net/content_img/wii2bluray1080p.jpg"></center></a>

    More details below (translated from French):

    This is a nice exclusive we have here at MaxConsole courtesy of Artik from www.Logic-sunrise.com on the Wii 2. The actual information is said to have been leaked from an internal source of the marketing Nintendo France Service. Unlucky for them, this kind of information should stay internal, but that's not our philosophy.

    - The Wii2 system will feature a Blu-Ray drive with a secondary aim of stopping piracy.
    - 1080P and lower resolutions will be supported, for blu-ray movies and games.
    - The release date is scheduled for third quarter of 2010.
    - The release will be worldwide and on the same day for all countries.
    - A scheme will be available in which it is possible to trade in the original Wii for a cheaper price on the new Wii 2.

    Moreover, Nintendo wants to make a worlwide annoucement, only one month before release date. Huge publicity and Viral Marketing will be utilized to create the Buzz. Official pictures are not yet available, and more specs will be released in due course.

    Why do we believe it at all ?/b]

    * Artik from Logic-Sunrise.com has regularly provided news to MaxConsole and has a lot of 'insider' contacts.

    * Nintendo has suggested that it's time they embraced high definition technology for the Wii and Blu-ray has firmly established itself. So a Wii 2 with Blu-ray support does make sense.

      The fact that this lists blu-ray and 1080p means its bs. Since when has Nintendo ever used current technology to build their systems.

      Very unlikely to be honest, Nintendo can milk the Wii for a long time to come and make loads doing so. Ill believe it when it happens.

      The Gamecube used DVD media just like the PS2 and XBox did.

      I'm not trading in my hacked up sh*tty Wii for Wii 2. Unless Wii 2 will be hacked.

      Then I'll trade it in.

      And Nintendo had better get with the f**king program and make the systems graphic capabilities the same as or better then PS3 or Xbox360.

      Now that MS can make a high-def console for under $200, of course Nintendo can, but will they? It's been their mantra in the handheld market for some time... don't introduce the highest-end available, introduce the highest end available under the target price point. They justified the Wii's price point by saying that it was what they could do for $250 (actually, it's what they could do for much less, considering the GameCube's long-time $99 price tag before that) and said that they wouldn't introduce more until it, too, could be introduced for less. That means that they could have done it last year but they were still having trouble keeping the Wii in stock even without a price cut, so why bother and give up all that profit?

      That said, I still think this exact info is BS based on the trade-in thing. I mean, honestly... what do you think Nintendo is going to do with the traded-in consoles? Would it really still have GC/Wii support without your old console?

      Wow, this is such a load of crap. In no way will they release a new console in 2010. They just did a price drop on the original and people are still purchasing those. Much less they would have no time for any PR or Advertising. I say take this with LESS than a grain of salt.

      Honestly this should have not even been posted by how blatantly unrealistic it is. But its not my site so oh well.

      Why is it unrealistic?

      Guess what, Nintendo is coming out with a new DSI. With a bigger screen. LMAO!

      I mean really, to say Nintendo wont have Wii 2 out is like saying the Original DS would have been the only DS made. Now there will be 4 different kinds of DS systems.

      DS Phat, DS Lite, DSI, and now DSI with bigger 4 inch screen.

      Wii 2 will happen.

      "The Wii2 system will feature a Blu-Ray drive with a secondary aim of stopping piracy." :confused:

      How will this stop piracy??? Wii have usb hdd loader so will have wii2 when hacked,also blu-ray is cracked long time ago,there even working on a jtag bluray drive hack for ps3 at the moment. So how is blu-ray gonna stop piracy again???

      Also it dasn't mean becuase wii was a hit wii-2 will also be a hit, did they forget they made it for non gamers??? There not intrested in a wii-2,only hardcore games whant a new system,like a xbox720 or ps4

      REMEMBER: The reason why the Wii was hacked was because of the twiizer hack and changing some bytes of ram in the DVD drive. Nintendo are learning from their mistakes as shown with the DSi.

      Also Nintendo made a profit on every unit soled unlike MS/Sony so this is either going to be more expensive that the Wii or they will start making money from games. If its true.

      This sounds like just another rumour if you ask me.

      Personally, even if it is true I wouldn't upgrade unless the system becomes hacked like my Wii and there are games worth buying for it besides the occasional treat from nintendo and maybe the odd one from a third party. These days I actually have more "fun" just modifying it than the games.

      actually it used mini dvds that were burned in a different way so as to make them unreadable on a normal pc. so technically it didn't use the same discs as the xbox/ps2. but a smaller capacity version.

      ok, they're releasing Wii 2 by third quarter of next year? The Wii just had its first price drop--how in the hell is Nintendo coming out with another Wii this soon? There is no way this is happening. It makes not one iota of business sense at all. If it happens, then I will stand corrected but this would be one hell of a stupid move for Ninty.
