    I don't know.. movie support? Nintendo's never really into these console that can multitask. They pretty much built consoles/handhelds with only the games in mind. It's only because of homebrew which the Wii can watch DVD movies. Although Ps2 has been out for the longest time, Nintendo still didn't decide to take the idea of allowing a Wii to play DVD movies.

    So.. I would say that part of the leak information is false based on my perspective. Blu-ray could be a possibility.. but Nintendo is always a generation behind. Maybe they'll just go Dual-layer.

    Edit: and by dual layer, I mean the games that are gonna come out as dual layers instead of single. Wii already has the ability to do that but rarely do games come out as dual layer.

    Well I won't be getting a new gaming system anytime soon anyways. >.> I doubt the blu-ray drive and I doubt the worldwide release even more.

    Bluray? The second I read that it only confirmed my thoughts that this is false.

    And the scheme for trading in old games.....aint gonna happen. All I want from Nintendo is a Wii that can output at least 720p. No change in any processors or anything. The wiis graphics aren't as horrible make them out (okay some are). Its stretching a 480p image onto a 47" 1080p television that kills me. So jaggy and so ugly!

    True dat.

    I don't think everyone will start toting Bluray drives next generation, and a 2010 release date seems a little too early, especially with the Wii raking in good sales and with a nice crop of games scheduled for release (NMH 2, SMG 2, new Zelda game, Red Steel 2, The Grinder, etc). I say 2011 by the earliest.

    Most likely the Wii2 will be an unhackable system like the PS3. Well the era of console piracy is coming to an end hopefully Nintendo will have digital distribution of retail games for the Wii2.

    How would this be anywhere near having "Wii 2's" specs leaked. The only thing said that even remotely resembles specs in that quote is the fact that it's gonna have Blu-ray.

    Not to mention that this thing reeks of falseness.

    You know, this isn't a complete impossibility. Just because Microsoft said they wouldn't put a blu-ray drive in their console, that doesn't automatically mean Nintendo won't do it.

    Remember that Microsoft and which ever company had HD DVD (Toshiba?) were together when the disc wars were going on. It's not a complete improbability that Nintendo won't put a blu-ray drive in there next console, like most of you are ruling out.

    This is good for Nintendo. The blu-ray will really be a big help in bringing down the world of piracy. Of course, if blu-ray disc gets cheaper, that won't help either.

    Sony had it good.

    Blu ray? Wouldn't Nintendo have to pay sony for that? I really doubt these specs are real.

    Next week I'll leak info of the true successor to the DS which I'll call it Nintendo DSi3g and I'll make some bad art for it as well as make up specs. I have insider information but I wont say who from.

    And that is how to increase site traffic.
