Nintendo exec reignites Wii HD speculation

Fils-Aime talks up “additional capability”

Security for virtualized datacentres

Despite only recently stating that “there is no Wii HD” in development, the President of Nintendo America has since hinted that HD support isn’t the only new feature that may be added to a next-generation Wii.

Reggie Fils-Aime said during a recent interview with website Kotaku that when Nintendo “move to the new generation” it will be because “there are some fundamental things the [current] console cannot do”.

The existing Wii doesn’t support HD graphics, so could that be what Fils-Aime was hinting at? Perhaps.

Although the Nintendo executive said addition of HD capability to the Wii “will not be the next step” for Nintendo, he added that “there will be more to it” and that “there will be additional capability”.

Quite what Fils-Aime meant by “additional capability” is a mystery. However he stressed that these “additional elements” could take some time, hinting that if a next-generation Wii is launched then it won’t arrive for a while yet.

Many gaming analysts, including Wedbush Morgan’s Michael Pachter, have already forecast that the Wii HD will be unveiled in 2010. ®
