233w ago - Nintendo is still insisting that as far as the original Wii is concerned, there is not a significant reason to make it HD compatible.
However, a new Wii may well support HD because HD is common across the world.
To quote: Nintendo president Satoru Iwata recently talked to VentureBeat about the HD upgrade of the Wii and revealed that:
"If we have an opportunity to make a new console, it will probably support HD because it is now common throughout the world. However, as far as the Wii is concerned, we have not found a significant reason to make it HD-compatible at this time."
The executive went on to say that: "What is the significant meaning to the users? I don't think we should do it unless we find that reason. If we decide for other reasons to make new hardware, then HD is one of the things we would naturally add. As for timing, it may be three years from now, five years from now or eight years from now."

well ive sold about 150 HDTV's so far this year. and my self own 3. HDTV's are dirt cheap now. and considering the fact that in north America analogue broadcast is now non existent except for a few canadian stations now, everything is going HD.
so you tell me. and im a small time shop. not a box store.
"The executive went on to say that: "What is the significant meaning to the users? I don't think we should do it unless we find that reason." Translation..we are enjoying the extraordinary amount of shovel ware on our console and a huge profit with our motion control Gamecube 1.5 why would we compounded that by higher cost doing it in HD when people are stupid enough to swallow what were giving them.
