    According to the rumor, Nintendo MAY use Blu Ray to stop piracy. Are you kidding me??? Does Nintendo NOT know there are already Blu Ray rippers AND burners on the market??
    All hackers need to do, if the rumor is true, is to find a way to play the burned Blu Ray discs.


    Just wanted to point this out..

    The world might end 2012.

    And now, do I open a topic about this and tell the people to start discussing? No, I don't. Because it makes NO FRIGGIN SENSE!

    You bought that line? Nintendo is probably working on something right now, they just will not release details. Nothing new there. Sounds like a PR circlejerk line to me.

    Nintendo isn't very well known for keeping secrets.

    I think they could manage to keep Wii 2 under wraps. They've done it with their home consoles. You act like they leak stuff years ahead of time and as if they aren't controlled leaks anyway.

    Yeah they could keep the Wii2 undere wraps, but judging by their record why would they want to? Besides we would need to know a codename before it was even announced anyway.

    Just look at Nintendo's Track record. Why would they break the pattern now, when they can spin the great hype machine and have massive sales guaranteed before the console is even released?

    Well, bluray is steadily becoming the market default. More and more people are owning bluray players, bluray burners. Final Fantasy XIII in itself has shown the superiority of bluray over DVD9 formats (I only have a 360. My friend has a PS3. We compared quality - Son, I was disappoint.)

    So while it's obvious that this is the path Nintendo SHOULD take, especially if they're jumping into the HD market..

    They probably won't. I don't see why they would. And my only basis behind that is because it's a good idea. Nintendo stays away from (orthodox/expected) good ideas like nobody's business. The solutions they DO come up with are always interesting - but.. strange. Keep in mind, we didn't move up to full-sized DVDs until this generation. Nintendo likes to drag their feet when switching formats. [​IMG]

    Blu-Ray is only a means for storage. Having games on Blu-ray isn't ging to automagically make your games PS3 quality.

    That would actually be a good way to stop piracy. I think the main reason why pirates pirate is the convenience of it. think about it they don't have to pay for a game they don't have to leave to go anywhere and in the wii's case dont even have to burn games anymore. however Blu-Ray is still new and not many people have adopted the new system yet. Not to mention that blu-ray burners are still expensive along with its discs. Plus if you were going to download one blu-ray game it would be like 25-50gb of data at that point so the time to download a game would also play a factor. anyway to me it seems like right now blu-ray would stop pirating to an extent because it would get to the point where it isnt as convenient to just go out and buy the game.

    My 2 cents about it anyway. [​IMG]
