Wii HD: Are the predictions coming true?

One year ago Cynamite predicted how the new generation of consoles is going to look like. Now - after the E3 2010 - we know a bit more: These predictions of Cynamite's Wii HD-forecast already came true.

Nintendo said the next consoles won't be a "Wii HD." They said that each console does something the previous was unable to do, in this generation, it was motion control. Now that everybody has a slice at that, I doubt the next console would be a Wii HD.

hmm, hd 720p is pretty much done before, full hd 1080p done occasionally. cinema aspect ratio, 21:9? wasn't done before i think, at least in gaming.

Conloles2697d ago

Yeah like its full HD.... that right only goes to PC's.

Dragun6192697d ago

I think if Nintindo were to announce a Wii HD they would have already at E3. They look like They're fully committed to the 3DS until they release it.

darkcharizard2697d ago

Will support 1440p, Blu-ray and 3D.

"They said that each console does something the previous was unable to do, in this generation, it was motion control"

nes,snes,N64 & Gamecube... aside from improved graphics, what exactly did each console do different??? did I not notice something unique about each of those consoles all those years?!

the wii is a gamecube with motion control, so I wouldn't be surprised to see the wii2 being just a wii, but in HD this time.

@conloles.... Just... Stop... your out numbered and nobody really wants to hear what you have to say bro!

I just want to play Nintendo games in high definition.

All of the other gimmicky crap does not interest me at all, but I realize that most casual gamers are brought in by the "gimmick", so Nintendo will = gimmicks for a long time to come.

Sigh.

you are kinda reading way to deep into that.
They meant Wii is not just gonna have a HD upgrade.

HD resolutions arent something that you could just leave out while tvs are advancing.
They know this. Next Nintendo( i say Nintendo and not Wii) console will be HD.

NES - D-pad
Snes - shoulder buttons, bigger adventure games like link to the past- FX chip- more realistic sounds(thanks to sony with the SPC-700).
N64 - Analog, Rumble, bigger worlds like Mario or Ocarina of time.

And then some.

If these consoles did nothing, than neither did any of the consoles after those.

darkcharizard is right:

Eighth generation Nintendo console
Will support 1440p, Blu-ray and 3D.

they sad that the next system will not be HD because the technology will go on : but thay said something about 3d graphics

N4g_null2696d ago

Blu ray would be a mistake right now. If they can get it to match hd read bandwidths and seek times I would say yeah but blu ray right now is really only here for hd movies.

Sure you have one disk but think about this.

Nintendo keeps DVD and puts a new format on the system that holds a terabyte of data with read and write speeds that match or can exceed current harddrives.

This tech was announced at ces and with an update you could use it with an on board processor also.

Blu ray will stay a movie format yet this new format has way more potiential for gaming.

The next Wii's going to have HD, definitely. But I dont't think it's going to be the main feature, of course.
I'm really excited about the next Nintendo console, I wonder what they're going to do with it. It's cool that you already have predictions to the next N console.

Btw: It has to be a FREAKIN TRANSFORMER!

Colonel-Killzone2697d ago

Nintendo is making a boat load of cash this generation. I don't think they are worried about a WII HD yet. They are to busy counting all the millions they got in the bank

redDevil872697d ago

and those incoming millions from the 3DS. Their accountants must be tired lol

Game-ur2697d ago

If the current Wii was HD it would have been game set and match for Nintendo

BYE2697d ago

Well...it is, even without HD.

Samus HD2697d ago (Edited 2697d ago )

yeahh it is even without HD.
But if it was HD from the beginning [ps3 and 360 = Fail]

PSfan092697d ago
