Nintendo: Wii Users Don't Need HD Anyway
Well, well, Nintendo's Reggie Fils-Aime certainly isn't scoring any brownie points with the HD crowd this week.
Aside from telling GT TV that no, there was not going to be a Wii HD, period, the Nintendo of America boss has said that Wii users don't really need an HD console anyway.
Talking about the recent partnership with Netflix, Reggie told NBC that, because the vast majority of content available for streaming from Netflix is not HD, "there really is no loss for the consumer, the fact that they can't get any HD content through our system."
Reggie goes on to say that with 26 million consoles sold, it's obvious that people think the quality of the visuals is not nearly as important as the overall entertainment and value of the experience.
