New Wii Announced

Apparently the Nintendo Wii may be being remade into a more powerful gaming system. It is believed that the new Wii may be more powerful than the PS3 or Xbox 360. This seems unlikely given the high price of producing PS3s but only time will tell. The excerpt from the article tells more.

"The news, first reported by Game Informer who cited anonymous sources in their report today, confirms rumors that have been swirling for months in the wake of slowing game releases from Nintendo.

Furthermore, we've heard that the machine will be more powerful than current-gen systems, meaning Nintendo, currently backing a Wii that is weaker in horsepower than the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, will be showing a new console that is more powerful than those current competitors.
Update: Nintendo responded to our inquiry with a standard "Nintendo does not comment on rumor or speculation"."
