Nintendo released its motion based video game console the Wii way back in late 2006. Since then, the console has shipped in huge volumes, and has met with huge success.
However, 4 years is a long time in the general consumer electronics field, and the Wii has definitely become old now. The graphics of the console look dated and frankly, the lack of gaming at HD resolution in this age is downright embarrassing.
Nintendo realized this, and has announced that they will be releasing the successor to the Wii sometime next year. The company has also stated that they will have a playable model’ available for demo at the upcoming E3 in Los Angeles.
Sadly, the company did not mention anything about the changes the Wii’s successor will sport. Hopefully, the company will reveal more juicy details about the Wii 2 before E3 (7th June).
The Wii 2 will surely have a tough task matching the popularity of the original Wii. Nintendo managed to sell a whopping 86.01 million units of Wii, between its launch and March 2011.
