Will Nintendo go from Wii to HDii?

Theories have started to rise surrounding Nintendo’s next home console with strong evidence backing up the claims. Based on financial reports and anonymous claims, WhatTheyPlay.com has determined the Wii’s successor could be HD ready.

“… Apparently set to hit the market “by 2011” the new device is said to be the true “next generation” Nintendo console, and far more than a simple refresh of the current hardware. Unlike previous console transitions from Nintendo, the new system will be presented as a true successor to the Wii, and is being dubbed by those that have seen the presentation as “Wii HD.” There is no indication if this will be its eventual name, but the nature of the transition has been characterized as similar to “the shift from Game Boy to Game Boy Advance,” where familiar, key elements were left intact while the core hardware was made more powerful. It is expected by all those that we have spoken to on the subject that the new device will retain the Wii name in part..”

Nintendo has been spending qutie a lot of money in their research and development department it appears. In three years, Nintendo’s cash flow to the department is said to have gone from $34 million to $370 million from 2003 to 2006. That’s a whole lot of cash spent on figuring out stuff if you ask me. With tomorrow’s event creeping ever closer, we may just see it debuted in a matter of hours… or not.
