Game Informer reports that rumour has it that the “Xbox 720? should be released sometime in 2010, while the “Wii 2? would likely be released a “little later” as we can assume this means around 2011. Playstation 4 apparently is rumoured to be releasing in 2012.

Would you be happy to see a Wii 2 by 2011? Or do you think Nintendo should “disrupt” the market by introducing the Wii 2 much early on?

I guarantee that the next XBox won't be called 720. That doesn't even make any sense. Speculation sucks.
did 360 make any sense? ;D but yes i'm pretty sure also that next xbox won't be "720".

Makes more sense than "Wii"

Anyway, the reason for the "360" name is simple.. Sony was releasing a console called Playstation 3.. If Microsoft named their console with the name Xbox 2, When you see the names PS3 and Xbox 2 side by side.. you get the impression that the Xbox is inferior, cause it's 2, while it's competitor is a 3.. so, the "360" thing.. it's a marketing thing.. I know, sounds stupid.. like every marketing thing

And about the rumor, it's not hard to make those kind of guesses.. just look at how much time the previous consoles last. And I should remind you that the PS2 is still alive and kicking

I'm still waiting for the Wii to be released in Black (or any other fucking color besides White), with DVD support...

xbox 720, come on they aren't going to name it that. that'd be stupid. wii 2? possible, but there's no gamecube 2 so that's probably not happening either.

the reason why we have an xbox 360 is because there is a playstation 3, and microsoft went all creative and named their system xbox 360 instead of xbox 3 since there's no xbox 2. xbox came out after ps2 I believe.

yeah that black wii looked slick back before the current one was released. you should be able to swap cases these days, i'm sure someone makes a black replacement case.

I predict that Apple will introduce their own console (even though Wii has reached their target market)

Hold me to that, and check this comment again in 10 years time.

I predict:
Nintendo 6 and Xbox 3 - 2011-12, probably at the same time with similar specs.
Playstation 4 - the year after, once they realise that a 10 year lifecycle isn't going to happen.

Ja, I've seen ridiculous amounts of cases, decals, and whatever, but nothing quite matches the feeling of owning an officially licensed/manufactured color...

Nintendo needs to ease up with the cocktease.

Are there any Nintendo 2 consoles? They allways give them new names I believe.
Besides, it will take a little longer than just 3 years for a new Wii, the current one is likely to remain popular for atleast 5 years if you ask me.

The 360 bit means that Microsoft's plan for a machine running games under their framework is finally gone full circle.

well I feel like my official white wii isn't so official any more since parts (mainly doors) don't fit right because I took the whole thing apart to mod it

oh well at least it runs warez so that's what matters. I think I'd just stick with the white one. black is for ugly ps3.
