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

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 MC 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.

I'll believe it when I see it. It's awful convenient that they say Nintendo isn't going to announce anything until a month before they ship consoles, which isn't true. They'd have to produce an awful lot of Wii2s without anyone noticing, and just pulling out the copyrights would take longer than a month. People would watch the contracts and copyrights and find out way before a month before console launch.

This is fake.

But still, I like the idea of trading in old Wiis to upgrade (although that won't happen either). I would like to keep all my WiiWare and VC titles when I upgrade, you know.

I never understood people who sold their old consoles for new ones, I know this one guy who went and pawned his N64 for 5 bucks, Ps1 for 7 bucks, GC for 7 bucks & xbox for 13 bucks and every game for each console to make up enough money to buy a 360, he sold every single console he had so he could get a 360 when it was new... Jeez! I really, really dispise it when people pawn their old consoles for new ones because they are going to severely regret it later.

Nintendo should not be encouraging this, it's a new low, then people have to go buy GC's or something because the wii 2 isn't double backwards compatibale, and bye bye to all your VC games, but of course, hundreds of millions of people will be selling their old consoles to get this...
Personally, I don't want a PS4, an xbox 520 or a wii 2, I'm probably not going to buy them, I never use my wii or 360.

Word of advice kids, work like a dog with chores and save up the money, it isn't worth it, and the younger you are when you lose or have a console sold, the more you are going to regret it.
I worked for 2 months straight, all I did was work, work, work so I could save up for a 360, and I'm not really a rich guy, I get maybe a buck for something like the dishwasher, and 5 bucks for shoveling 2 feet of snow & ice off the driveway, all for a 360, don't get me wrong. I love lots of games on the 360, but I barely play it, if I would have sold my stuff for one... I don't even want to know...

Word of advice kids, work like a dog with chores and save up the money, it isn't worth it, and the younger you are when you lose or have a console sold, the more you are going to regret it. Do Not Sell Your old consoles for new ones unless they offer 100% backwards compatibillity with your old things (ie: GC Game compatibillity, Wii 1 games, VC games, etc. should all be available on the wii 2).

Bottomline, don't let excitement get to you, and don't let nintendo sucker you into doing so. K?

Blue Ray? That's weird, I probably won't get it unless it's backwards compatable

I won't trade in my Wii unless the Wii 2 plays gamecube, wii, and virtual console games. It also has to have all of the same channels and more.
