There is a details leaked on Maxconsole side about the next generation of Nintendo Wii console which will be called as ‘Wii 2‘. I guess it’s normal to get the urge to update their console after seeing Microsoft with their Project Natal, and Sony with their Motion Controller. This version, according to the leak, Nintendo Wii will get a full HD support and Blu-ray drive installed to prevent piracy. According to Nintendo, Wii 2 will be having a fully backward compatibility unlike PS3 which lack of this feature.
Perhaps this is kind of a surprise attack from Nintendo, Nintendo Wii 2 will be released on the Q3 of 2010, which I assume the date before Microsoft actually launching their Project Natal in the late 2010.
