Michael Pachter of wedbush.com is spreading the rumor that Nintendo’s supposed high definition upgrade for the Nintendo Wii rumored to come out in 2011 last year will hit next year instead. Unfortunately he also is spreading the depressing idea that the next generation of consoles won’t be released before 2013. Apparently the HD upgrade will be a new console, not an add-on to the current Nintendo Wii. If it’s true it will most likely feature a more GPU and CPU and offer 1080p resolutions.

I must say that I would buy an upgraded Nintendo Wii for a new Zelda game if it made it look and run smoother. I’m a sucker for a new Zelda 😛
