    Exclusive: Wii 2 specs leaked, Blu-ray enabled and 1080p support?

    From maxconsole website. No doubt someone will homebrew it on first week of release. Mind you with a Bluray drive it will be hard.

    We've just received some exclusive news and specs on the Wii 2 via Logic-Sunrise.com) (though a Nintendo of France marketing employee). The leaked specs denote the Wii 2 will get a Blu-ray drive (mainly to stop piracy), but will also support 1080P for games as well as movies. The new system is due out during the third quarter of next year and there will be the option to trade in old Wii's!

    More details below (translated from French):

    This is a nice exclusive we have here at MaxConsole courtesy of Artik from www.Logic-sunrise.com on the Wii 2. The actual information is said to have been leaked from an internal source of the marketing Nintendo France Service. Unlucky for them, this kind of information should stay internal, but that's not our philosophy.

    - The Wii2 system will feature a Blu-Ray drive with a secondary aim of stopping piracy.
    - 1080P and lower resolutions will be supported, for blu-ray movies and games.
    - The release date is scheduled for third quarter of 2010.
    - The release will be worldwide and on the same day for all countries.
    - A scheme will be available in which it is possible to trade in the original Wii for a cheaper price on the new Wii 2.

    Moreover, Nintendo wants to make a worlwide annoucement, only one month before release date. Huge publicity and Viral Marketing will be utilized to create the Buzz. Official pictures are not yet available, and more specs will be released in due course.

    Why do we believe it at all ?

    * Artik from Logic-Sunrise.com has regularly provided news to MaxConsole and has a lot of 'insider' contacts.

    * Nintendo has suggested that it's time they embraced high definition technology for the Wii and Blu-ray has firmly established itself. So a Wii 2 with Blu-ray support does make sense.

    Blu-Ray to stop piracy huh? Damn, nintendo is hitting hard on us.

    I feel someone will find a workaround for the Blu-Ray. Downloads might be HUGE (zomg 50 gigs of game!, do i feel nintendo is going to use 10% of the 50 gigs just to fuck with us?)
    Oh well, External Hard Drives and compress the shit out of the game will fix it

    Nintendo doing HD is amazing. Finaly we get games that will look good on a HDTV. Although i dont really care right now because i dont have a a HDTV.

    Usually you hear about a console more than 2 years before it's release... and now we hear of it about 9 months before? No way.

    even if it has a blueray it wont stop piracy as how are we going to be able to play the older games? and really cant see it stopping the scene. but yup USB/HDD loaders will be the way forward there. Just look at the original release of the Wii in Europe when it came out the chips were available straight away and thats when i got my WiiKey straight away.
    If my post helps click the Thank button ^_^
