The source reveals that Wii 2 (let’s call it that for now) will get a Blu-ray drive to usher them into the Hi-Definition era while also aiming to stop piracy as hackers have been unable to crack the Playstation 3 yet and consquently, will also support 1080p resolution for games and movies. Wii 2 is scheduled to release in Q3 2010 and will have a simultaneous release worldwide (not for Middle East though, we don’t exist for Nintendo). Nintendo will also roll out a exchange scheme were buyers will able to exchange their Wii consoles for a discount on Wii 2.
Interestingly, Nintendo will only announce the console a month before the release date and will use aggressive marketing tactics to create the necessary buzz.
