Yeah you can expect bits of information about Nintendo's new console from time to time now that the 3DS's released.
We've heard countless rumors that Wii 2 will support HD, but a new report has further indicated that it will still depend on optical drive as the primary medium for gameplay. If this turns out to be true and Nintendo fails to improve on its download service, the Wii 2 could be seriously disadvantaged considering the trend in online downloads for games. Valve's Steam PC platform has been enjoying huge success in this department, while Sony and Microsoft offer growing libraries of downloadable games through PlayStation Network and Xbox Live, respectively.
In fact, we feel that the PS3 and Xbox 360 have caught up with the Wii in many ways. These include motion-controlled gameplay with the introduction of PlayStation Move and Xbox Kinect, family-centric game titles and better affordability. It doesn't help that the Nintendo console is a far less versatile machine which lacks DVD playback, DLNA support and other advanced functions, too.
Doomed as usual.
