Rumor: Nintendo Wii 2 with Blu-ray and 1080p Coming in 2010?

400°
268w ago - According to Artik of French site Logic-sunrise.com, the Nintendo Wii 2 is allegedly set to arrive in 2010 and include Blu-ray and 1080p support.

This rumor appears to stem from an internal source of the marketing department at Nintendo France, however, little information is available to substantiate it unfortunately.

To quote from Ripten (linked above): "It could be that it wasn't posted on the French site itself although that wouldn't make much sense.

All in all, the rumored "leak" states that Nintendo is working on a Wii sequel with the following:

•The Wii2 system will feature a Blu-Ray drive with a secondary aim of stopping piracy.
•1080P and lower resolutions will be supported, for blu-ray movies and games.
•The release date is scheduled for third quarter of 2010.
•The release will be worldwide and on the same day for all countries.
•A scheme will be available in which it is possible to trade in the original Wii for a cheaper price on the new Wii 2."

268w ago - Today Dark Energy Digital Senior Creative Designer Rob Hewson revealed that Inferno Pool for PS3 is coming to PSN this week and has shared a video below.

To quote: It's been five months since the exclusive launch of Inferno Pool on the European PSN Store, and after a bombardment of emails asking when it was going to hit North America we can finally say, Thursday!

Just before the European PSN Store launch, there was a nervous excitement within the team here. When the people who have been developing the game for months on end are still hanging around at lunch and after work for yet another four-player battle royale you feel confident that you have something special. But would the rest of the world get it?

The answer was a resounding yes. There was a real buzz in the studio as the first glowing reviews began to roll in calling it an essential PSN purchase and waxing lyrical about evenings lost in a frenzy of multiplayer action, but the most satisfying thing of all was the reaction from gamers themselves.





Dedicated forums began to pop up discussing strategic ballzooka targeting, how to pull off a kickshot-multiball-combo and how to amass a devastating Endurance Mode time by stringing together a huge potting streak multiplier. In...

Well, thankfully you have a few more days to get ready! In this week's blog post, we'd like to share a little more on the features, specifically multiplayer!

For the first time in Loco history, you can now race friends through levels! Via Ad Hoc, connect with up to four players and see who can get to the end first. Each player controls their own tilt and bounce action, but you can see their position on your screen so you know when you are neck and neck. To show you how this works, I challenged Kumi, my LocoRoco partner-in-crime here, to a race and we recorded it.





Many of you regular readers may recall a blog post for LocoRoco 2 when we first introduced Ad Hoc competition LocoRoco Minigame called LocoRider. Kumi and I played head to head and she ended up beating me. So this is our rematch!
