    According to a gaming site, a major publisher has informed them that there is talk that Nintendo will announce a new platform at GDC. Moreover, some devs have supposedly begun work on it already. Could this be the Wii 2 that we broke the news about last year? Perhaps.

    PS: It's probably gonna look like shit with the games already available due to aliasing...

    They will probably just force the games into standard definition if they aren't capable of HD...

    The Gamecube lived for five years so now would seem like a good time to start stuff for Wiiiiii! 2.Give it another year and we'll see it.

    I really hope they don't, 3(?) years is a really short period of time, and I won't be getting a new console anytime soon.

    I've just bought a 360! Not getting another Nintendo console now though because of the failure of the Wii.

    They wouldn't do this for GDC, they'll save it for E3. They confirmed that 5th gen Pokemon, Zelda, Metroid M, Mario Galaxy 2 and others will debut there and if they have any new hardware they'll want to show it there first too just to blow the others out of the water.

    I would assume he's referring to the massive amounts of shovelware?. As I haven't heard of many Wii's with hardware failure.

    Having massive amounts of shovelware isn't a failure, you just ignore it and look at the shitload of other great titles.

    Why Wii? I gonna bet my last dollar it's the DS sucessor. The System is 6 years old and it's clear as day it's time for a sucessor.

    It may not be a new console, it says it could be a new handheld. It says the source could not say whether it was a console or handheld. Maybe this is the rumored DS2. Honestly, I think I would be more excited about a new ds than a new wii.
