Default Nintendo HD in e3 2011?

Tons of rumors (more likely then NvC/Nintendo vs Capcom) have began that the Wii HD will be Nintendo's successor console:

More news here:

(I also noticed he said it might be more powerful then the Xbox 360 and PS3.....^______^ )

Dammit, just when I get an Xbox <_<

Oh well, it'll take a while for the price to go down and the third-party library to improve, so I guess it's worth waiting.

I doubt it'll be called Wii HD of all things, but it will probably be announced/teased at this E3, if not announced at the next TGS or E3 2012.

Awesome! I hope the rumoured "Wii HD" exists because I really want the next generation of consoles to arrive. It must live up to a lot of expectations amidst such a strong gaming world, though.

This sounds like an excellent console. I hope the rumors about it having graphics comparable to the Xbox 360 and PS3 are true. Nintendo has great ideas for their games and consoles, but all they need now is a great graphics engine as well.

They're a bit late to try and compete with the 360 and PS3 in terms of graphics, don't you think?

Well, yes, it is late, but it's better late than never. And besides, it's not like Nintendo would just make a whole next-generation console just for the point of updating graphics. There also has to be something else gameplay-wise put in there. (But looking through some of those posts on the site link, the controller does sound kind of weird. Maybe it'll make more sense when more info is leaked.)

Sure WiiHD sounds kinda stupid. But, I really don't think game can go farther then HD. (and 3D/ also virtual reality) And seeing Nintendo's first HD console and games. I can't to see how Mario looks. Also, Nintendo really needs to make a new Star Fox (not remade) or new F-Zero on Wii. Either that or make them on the rumored "WiiHD".

I wonder how Nintendo will officially announce the "WiiHD", with all the witty ways they have.
Oh Regi, how I loved seeing you get sucked into a 3DS!

Nintendo has stated their next console won't be until 2012/2013, which is the expected launch for the next-gen home console cycle.

Meaning that the next Nintendo console should not just be comparable to the PS3/X-Box 360, but should definitely top them. Otherwise, Nintendo will fall one generation short of every other company feature-wise.

You're debating whether or not you should get something that you don't even know exists.

How "HD" are the three current consoles anywho? I thought the Wii had 480p, but I wasn't sure if the other two were 720 or 1080.

You can buy HDMI cables for the Wii so it renders in 720/1080. The PS3 also has HDMI cables but I'm not sure about the 360.

"Tha Woi Aech-duee".

That alone gave me little hope of validity.

"Hay guise, jast cahm awn daoun ta mah noo weeb-blag sa Ah caen git latsa troiffic, sa Ah ceen bay poupulah :D"

That's all I heard, and that's all I can hear from this video. "Spahkulasheen" and "Rooumahs" are not uncommon from Nintendo, those secretive *******s. But they'll tell us the rumors, not some Aussie tween in a stripey beanie advertising his new blog.

You can buy component cables for the Wii which render in 1080, but it doesn't have an HDMI port.

If a device has an HDMI port [Like the Xbox 360, PS3, or MotoDROID], it can display in glorious 1080p with stunning data streams and the lowest-possible data lag.

HOWEVER

If it does not have an HDMI port [Like most three/five year old computer video cards, the PS2/Xbox/Gamecube], it cannot use an HDMI. Period.

....What was I thinking......

Anyways, I also heard this might run on Blu-ray. I sure do hope this wasn't a late April Fools joke set to be later in April. (if so that would be really lame)

I've heard that it's codename is Project Café, and it's going to have a controller with a 6-inch screen built-in to it, along with all the buttons you find on a DS. I've also heard it'll be in HD and play Blu-Rays.

And the Wii's component cable only renders 480p rather than 480i, that's the best the Wii can do. he Xbox 360 can display in 1080p with an HDMI cable, as can the PS3, but the PS3 has a more powerful graphics card so it has the potential to look better than the 360.

Confirming the first half of this post- the console's codename is Cafe and it'll be out by late 2012.

The second half of the post however... Component cables that render above 480p exist. Just sayin'.

I hear from an industry insider that the Wii 2 will come out in the next year. Apparently they haven't official announced it yet, though.
