Reggie Fils-Aime has revealed that the next version of the Wii will not be just HD enabled, rather it will have additional capability. He added that there will be additional elements but they will be 'far into the future'.
<blockquote>He said: "The fundamental issue in the logic flow is that â€” and this is what I'm hearing, whether it's from you or Geoff or Michael himself â€” is that, gosh it's such an opportunity to take HD capability and link it with the Wii. And what we have said, repeatedly, is that that's not the way we at Nintendo do things. The way we at Nintendo do things is, you know, when we will move to a new generation, it's because there are some fundamental things the [current] console cannot do. What that says is that simply the addition of HD capability will not be the next step for us. There will be more to it. There will be additional capability. There will be additional elements, and, given that, it is far into the future."
In jest, I replied: "So, no new Wii in 2010?"
Fils-Aime: "Not to announce with you here today."</blockquote>
