PostSubject: Rumored Wii 2 hardware specs   Sat Apr 16, 2011 7:24 pm

http://imagequalitymatters.blogspot.com/2011/04/wii-2-details-revealed-and-updates-at.html

GPU- Custom ATI R700 with shader model 4.1
CPU- three core IBM PowerPC CPU, similar to the 360's CPU
512 RAM

It's stronger than the 360/PS3 but sadly it probably still will be behind the future Xbox/Playstation in terms of hardware. It has a way better GPU but it has pretty low RAM. I expect that future Xbox/Playstation consoles would have atleast 1 GB if not 2 GB.

I can't wait for the new console. If all the rumors are true, I might be a Nintendo fanboy all over again.

512 RAM?

Seriously? That was good in 05" when the 360 launched, not now. What a joke. And Crytek are hoping for up to 8GB in the next Xbox/PS4?

I was expecting it to be a lot stronger.

My thoughts exactly. It'll be a bit more powerful than the current gen system but not by much. This system definitely won't be known for its graphics.

I guess Nintendo once again took the cheap route since they care more about making the console more affordable. It's a good strategy at first but it's ultimately stupid if Nintendo plans to make the Wii 2 live longer than a couple years. I also predict that the Wii 2 won't have strong 3rd party support since it won't be able to run many of the games that the next Xbox and Playstation will be able to run.

Let's just hope all of this is just rumors.

Not all of it. If the controller rumors are true, waggle is out and controller is in. HARDCORE FTW.

Built in HD screen? Let's hope your main controller doesn't break cause God only knows how much one of those would be, considering a DS 3 is 40 euro / $50.

But they said it was backwards compatible with the Wii, so the waggle will probably still be there.

Edit : unless you can connect the Wii mote to this new console to enjoy your Wii games.

At least 2 GB of Ram and I would have been hyped. Can't believe they are going with such a small amount considering how cheap it is nowadays.

Nintendo, stop yo game up.

Until 2014...Nintendo might get a 2 year headstart but will probably get raped once the next Xbox and PS4 come out.

You mean hardware wise, right? Nintendo looks like it's aiming for the core this time.

before i start let it be known im a nintendo fan and also i know that at this point these are only speculations.

the truth is though that the wii did so well is that because nintendo made it their own a unique way of playing, unfortully for them if they try jumping back on board with the other hd consoles they will FAIL, never mind wii 2.0 it will be more like gamecube 2.0

I'm not THAT great at hardware, but i'll take a guess and say, that the only bad thing is the RAM? Maybe Nintendo is amping up the RAM till it's 2012 launch?
