We know Nintendo is having press conferences in Japan and San Francisco this Thursday. A new Nintendo DS with a camera might be there. According to What They Play and their “multiple sources” a new Wii will be one of the highlights. The rumored “Wii HD” will have better graphics, backwards compatibility, and fix the refrigerator problem by adding internal storage. Their sources say the next Wii won’t be launched until 2011 so the announcement, if it happens, is more like a tease.
No one needs to sneak into Nintendo’s headquarters to know they are working on a successor to the Wii. Announcing a crowning successor two years into the Wii’s lifecycle would be unexpected.
