The Nintendo rumour mills are working overtime, folks! Two hot new leaks suggest that the next iteration of the ultra-popular Nintendo Wii, the Wii 2, will be released next year and come with loads of new goodies.

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 ?

* 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.

Well Wii-2 will come for sure, but I think it will be in late 2010, thats I say 3rd quarter of 2010,and when it will come it will be dead expensive and people will tend to buy the Wii itself. HD is neded for high end tvs only, we inindia mostly have low size lcds only.
I think Nitendo is looking at selling Wii and wii-2 together in future, so I think it will be in 2011 only.

what you say!
