Pachter 'Absolutely Convinced' That Wii HD is Coming
The Wii's visuals sure would look a lot nicer in high-def, and it could very well happen in the near future. Analyst Michael Pachter is backing recent rumors of a Wii HD.

Rumors that a new high-definition version of the Wii (a "Wii HD") is in the works at Nintendo spread like wildfire last week when What They Play's John Davison reported that Nintendo is already in the early presentation phase and that a Wii HD would be due by 2011.

Now this rumor has gained some support from Wedbush Morgan Securities analyst Michael Pachter, who said in a recent AFP news article that he's certain Nintendo is working on a Wii HD.

"Nintendo has to overcome that [lack of graphics power]," said Pachter. "A Wii HD would really position Nintendo well, which is why I'm absolutely convinced there is a Wii HD coming. Businesswise, they can't have people saying that their machine is a toy for my mom."

A Wii HD would seem to make sense, but for now this all remains speculation. Pachter also recently said he was "convinced" that EA would buy Take-Two, and we all know how that turned out.
