Blu-ray Enabled Nintendo Wii A Reality? - Ermm No, It Was A Spoof So Stop Believing It Already

1PStart writes: "Over the course of last week, the big rumour to hit the gaming websites was that a Nintendo Wii with a Blu-ray drive was on the way. Apparently it had been spotted in Tokyo, and was getting readied for an official release.

Of course, the whole thing was absolute bullshit. There was no truth in it whatsoever, and some of the game sites who took it seriously, and reported it as fact should be ashamed of themselves.

For starters, look at the site which was used as the source: Unconfirmedsources.com. It's a website which plays on the idea that so many legitimate news organisations use the tagline 'unconfirmed sources' and then spill out a pile of invented rubbish, to create a funny site full of obviously spoof stories."

The story is too old to be commented.

Anyone who thought this would become a reality need a reality check.

@ 1.1, somebody called me?

Nintendo Wii with Blu-ray? Not going to happen.

Nintendo's focus, and they are very successful at that, is the family\kids\casual gamers. They have no vested interest in movie entertainment.

Royalties for Sony/BDA if that was to happen it bring up the value of the wii a ton. Wouldnt be a bad idea on Nintendo part to make a blue ray Wii. They seemed to have bypassed dvd I dont think they should make the same mistake the 2nd time around.
