Previous rumors have hinted 2011 as the tentative release of the next-gen Wii but the latest report has something different to say. The report comes by way of Maxconsole who got it from an internal source working at Nintendo France.
According to the source, the Wii 2 will be released Q3 2010 and interestingly it will have Blu-ray support, which is said to help Ninty thwart piracy. If this proves to be correct, the Wii 2 will support up to 1080p resolution and HD streaming too, which will be supposedly brought by Netflix.
It will be a same day worldwide release and existing Wii owners will be offered a discount to trade-in for the latest Wii.
