Nintendo Wii is a video game console developed by Nintendo and manufactured by Foxconn. Wii was first launched in November 2006.

Nintendo has made a good call by announcing its release of the newest console as its sales are already falling rapidly and this is the time to give a hard blow on its competitors, Microsoft and SONY.


According to the latest report by IGN, Nintendo is gonna be a lot more powerful than its predecessor. The Nintendo Wii will be housing a revamped version of AMD’s R700 GPU architecture under the hood, which can easily outperform Playstation 3’s Nvidia 7800-GTX processor. The system will support HD resolutions of 1080p and also will be stereoscopic 3D enabled. The CPU will be a custom built triple-core IBM PowerPC chipset with unimaginable clocking speeds. So much to say, Microsoft and SONY will already be threatened by such advanced schematics of the Wii 2 that they will bite their own tongue.

If IGN’s sources are correct, Wii is gonna pose as a serious threat to its rivals and hopefully will rekindle its lost passion among gamers.
As for the pricing, Wii is expected to cost around $350-$400.  How well the Wii 2 will promise to perform this time will only be revealed at the Expo this June. As for your comments we are very excited to hear what your say is.

Please comment as to what you feel about the new Wii! Will it break the barriers of Xbox and PS3 or will it still continue to remain as an outcast. Your views are important to us!


  • That is really cool. I wonder what it will pull out to rival Xbox and Playstation. Hopefully you won’t need to use the controller as much. It was hard for me to get the hang of it at first.

        Really Very important post.

  • I am excited to see what the new system will hold. I hope it will have a better motion sensor like the xbox has now.

    • we all are looking out for the same, used textbooks! hopefully it will better than PS3 and 360! 🙂

  • hey i just preordered the new nintendo console the wii with zelda and an extra controler. and i was just wondering if anyone else had pre-ordered the wii or planing to buy it when it comes out, also what game people are most looking forwards to on the wii?

  • It will be interesting to see how the the new Wii will do, especially considering a significantly higher price tag. I almost feel like its gonna be mediocre because of that.


    • @used tires: considering the price tag, the wii 2 really is expensive to buy! because of a lot of mods they hav made in the wii 2 such as faster processors the price has shooted up. we should see how it will perform in the market! 🙂

  • Truly the concept of Wii is phenomenal. This is the advent of the future of the gaming technology. Gone will be the joy sticks etc. enter are the motion controls.
