I already expected that Nintendo would release a new Wii console last year, but the company squeezed out another holiday sales run with the current Wii at discount prices and special bundles. 2011 seems now the year that Nintendo is releasing a new Wii console that can finally handle HD.

GameInformer reports that they have confirmed with multiple sources that Nintendo is going to release a Wii HD this summer. The announcement could be made at the E3 2011 or even before.

This new rumor is supported by another one that sees a Wii price-cut in May. According to Engadget Nintendo will sell the Wii for $150 starting May 15th.

A Wii HD that will also support 3D gaming at a $200 price-point would give Sony and Microsoft again something to chew on. The problem to solve for Nintendo is to keep the price low as HD requires more hardware performance. We will see if they succeed when they unveil the Wii HD.

The E3 2011 takes place from June 7 to June 9 in LA.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
