Wii HD News

Nintendo's Reggie Fils-Aime has poured cold water on the increasingly fevered speculation surrounding a potential HD take on the Wii, saying any new consoles from the company are a long way off.

Senior figures have recently weighed in on the debate over Nintendo's future and its adoption of HD technology. "Since ordinary TV programs are now shifting to HD, moving to HD appears to me a natural flow," recently admitted Genyo Takeda, Nintendo's Research and Development General Manager.

An HD Wii has been expected sooner rather than later, with industry figures placing a release date for a new configuration of the console or indeed an all-new console at some point in the next two years.

Nintendo of America's president Reggie Fils-Aime has scotched such talk, telling Kotaku that a new console is some way off. "The way we at Nintendo do things is, you know, when we will move to a new generation, it's because there are some fundamental things the [current] console cannot do," said Fils-Aime, "What that says is that simply the addition of HD capability will not be the next step for us. There will be more to it. There will be additional capability. There will be additional elements, and, given that, it is far into the future."

Are you ready for Nintendo to go HD, or are you happy with your Wii the way it is?

Well this I like. He's saying Nintendo isn't going to release a new console just to show off some new graphics. However, I can think of plenty of other things the Wii doesn't do--or does poorly--that could be addressed in a new console.
