Re: Wii 2 announced

perhaps hold all preconceptions until the device has been properly unveiled, going meh over rumours and speculation may condemn the unit before its even had a sniff of public light

Re: Wii 2 announced

No its a totally new console, more than likely backwards compatible though.

Re: Wii 2 announced

Yeah, just checked, all I had seen up till now was the controller part, not seen the actual "Original 360" looking console part.

Has full backwards compatibility apparently too.

I for one will be waiting to see what Microsoft do next though. Quite happy with the collection of stuff we have now. lol.

Based on the fact that it uses wiimotes/wii accessories in combination with a single controller with a screen (at the moment they have said they likely wont be releasing additional ones as it would be too expensive) backwards compatibility is paramount to it's success.

Actually I belive it's meant to be somewhere between the Xbox 360 and PS3 in terms of performance, and if it's better in the end it wont be by much.

Re: Wii 2 announced

I heard it was a power 7 based CPU? It has a radeon GPU so yea maybe somewhere in between, Still I hope its a kick up the arse for Sony / Microsoft.

Re: Wii 2 announced

It's a big move, since the Wii U is supposed to be aimed at the Xbox/Playstation style players. At this rate they'll be releasing something for everyone simultaniously. I don't know about this, I think they should have kept full concentration with the Wii 2, improved on their market (which is already VASTLY more popular than xbox and playstation). The Wii U just looks way to gimmicky to me and is going to be crushed by the next generation Xbox and playstation.
