Slow News day: HD Wii is inevitable... Mr. Anderson


Wow, those folks at CVG seen to be really on the ball today. In a recent interview with Miyamoto, they managed to drag such comments as:

"I'm afraid we cannot confirm what we are doing today, but the fact of the matter is that technology is evolving all the time and in Japan, for example in the year 2010 all the analogue broadcast will be stopped and shifted into the digital broadcasting. So many things are taking place and we are working in terms of the changes of the technologies all the time."


"... When it comes to specific points such as generating high definition graphics we might appear to be rather relaxed and soft on graphics, however, the fact of the matter is that Wii is capable enough to cater to the needs of these hardcore gamers in terms of gameplay content as well as the graphical content, so I really don't want people to be concerned about that kind of attitude."

and then went on to extrapolate that this means we'll have a HD Wii in two to three years. Wow, really? A HD Wii in two or three years. Gosh guys, I sure never would have seen that coming. Cop the fuck on. No matter what happens in between, Wii console sales will almost certainly have slowed enough by 2011 to justify bringing out a Wii 2. And considering the fact that Japan, America and most of europe will have gone fully digital by then (and the resulting sales of HD TV's which will inevitably go with such a switchover), it makes sense to have a new console be HD. Anyway, by 2011, SD games will be almost as backward to the majority of consumers as Black and White TV's are to us. CVG, captains of obviousness.
