Nintendo Announces Wii Successor

An obvious fake, but still interesting.
Nintendo has announced, that they will announce the successor to the Nintendo Wii at this years E3, and even have a playable demo. Not much else was said, I guess we'll need to wait until E3. I'm pretty excited actually - its been far too long.

A new wii ?

This morning there has been many sources of information talking about the "Wii2". According the Game informer the "Wii2" will be announced between now and E3 in July. for a late 2012 releaseSupposedly backwards compatible as well as possibly having graphic quality equal or grater to the current gen systems.

"we have confirmed with multiple sources that this new home system is capable of running games at HD resolutions. There are conflicting reports, however, as to whether its graphics will be comparable to those on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 -- meaning it could surpass or fall short of those systems. Either way it will offer competitive specifications. Moving to HD should greatly help Nintendo and its new console in getting more multi-platform triple-A titles like Portal 2 or Mortal Kombat. This, in turn, will strengthen Nintendo's historically poor relationship with third-party publishers/developers."

Game informer has contacted Nintendo about it, however Nintendo gave the stock-standard response "We do not comment on rumours or speculation".
Although, with such a huge rush of information so suddenly, the might hold some weight - although we'll just have to wait and see.  

In other news, Jesus its been awhile since i've posted. hope ya'll still love me.
