The Wii+: My Concept
Posted 29 December 2010 - 04:16 PM
The Wii's install base is trucking huge. This makes it hard for Nintendo to get these people to buy a brand-new box, especially in a hard economy. If said box cost a lot, your soccer-mom Wii crowd might not (read: won't) understand why a perfectly working Wii needs to be replaced.
So, here's my idea: it's dubbed the "Wii+" or "Wii Plus". This is an add-on that attaches to the bottom of the Wii (using this expansion port) and replaces the stand. Inside the new stand/attachment are things to make the Wii much more powerful-moar RAM, built-in Ethernet (to further encourage online connectivity), a new graphics chip, maybe a new CPU, and possibly a hard drive (anywhere from 20 to 60 GB, and could allow for game backups). It builds on top of what the Wii already has to make it a moar powerful console, maybe 360-caliber. The Wii+ also has a new OS, which runs instead of the Wii's proprietary OS, adding new features like improved online and better media (i.e. Hulu Plus and Netflix built-in).
This "Wii Plus" would retail for anywhere from $100 to $150, easily in the price range of the major Wii market.
What are your thoughts?

All these awesome looking games would have the Wii+ sticker and the normal Wii games would fall by the wayside. Who would make a Wii game if they can make a Wii+ game with awesome graphics?
Not sure about this... I would find it hard to explain to very casual gamers like my mum a stand that makes the Wii slightly better than I would a whole new console.

but what I would like would be a built in camera then they could incorporate that into games and maybe a few more things like controllerless like the xbox kinect only easier to use and can be used in any space. They could use the built in camera to do that. Brilliant
