Recently, there has been a lot of talk about the possibility of Nintendo coming out with a Wii console that will support high-definition resolutions. Nobody, however, knows the date at which this feature will come out. This feature has commonly been mentioned as the “Wii HD”. Although there really has not been a completely confirmed statement mentioning the Wii HD, in a recent interview Shigeru Miyamoto, a designer, suggested that Nintendo could be getting closer and closer to releasing an HD console.
“I don’t think there’s anything wrong with pretty graphics, and if I’m a consumer that has an HDTV, I’d want to be able to play my games with nice graphics too,” said Shigeru Miyamoto. “And I think as we’ve seen the penetration rates for HDTV increase, we’re going to see video games and Nintendo’s games move along in step with the progression of technology.”
To those of you who do not use an HD television to play the Wii on, this news may seem completely pointless. However, to those of you who do in fact use an HDTV for your gaming, this news is great. If you paid for the expensive TV then you might as well get your money worth on it.
