Nintendo working on HD Wii?

Analysts believe Nintendo may be working on a new, upgraded Wii which will offer high-definition resolutions:
"Consumers may hope for improved graphics, and my guess is that Nintendo will comply," said Pachter in an email to GamePro. "In two or three years, commodity prices for graphics processors and CPUs may decline to the point that a High Definition Wii could be introduced. If so, Nintendo will likely introduce one."

Nintendo is no stranger to releasing upgraded iterations of its consoles. The most recent example of this is the Nintendo DS, which saw an initial release form of a bulky, sturdy folding brick, and later reinvented into the DS Lite, a sleek, shiny iPod-like fun machine. Considering Nintendo’s great success with this strategy, it should not be surprising to learn that the games maker could be plotting a similar strategy for the Wii.
