Does Wii HD Make Sense?


"For more than a week, I've tried to properly examine why the "Wii HD" or "Wii Plus" makes business sense, but every time I began writing, I was stopped in my tracks.

Big N is having enough trouble filling out first-party titles as it is. The Wii is already in need of more Mario, more Zelda and more Samus (not to mention Star Fox, Pikmin, F-Zero, etc.). They won't make it any easier on themselves trying to juggle two versions of Wii.

They are so successful right now because they stepped out of the graphics wars. I don't think more polygons and higher def texture resolution would have made Twilight Princess or Galaxy any better, either.

The ONLY reason they have to move up the console's power is if they want versions/ports of 3rd-party games that are using Sony and Microsoft's motion controls in the next few years. And even then, we're talking 2010 or 2011. They could easily launch a Wii-2 in 2011.
