What would have happened if, instead of innovating with the Wii, Nintendo produced a standard HD console for Gen 7?

- Same November 2006 release date

- Similar power and architecture to Xbox 360

- $300/$350 at launch, pricier model has a bigger hard drive

- No motion controls, no blue ocean software like Wii Fit

How do you think Gen 7 would have played out in this scenario, and why?

Note: This isn't the same alternate history timeline as N64 using CDs in the other topic, for the purposes of this thread, let's assume Gen 5 and 6 played out as they did IRL

Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.
