Nintendo: There is No Wii HD

Love your HDTV and how it's able to display such crisp images when paired with a high-definition source? Of course you do. But things seem a little off when your Wii is pumped through your HDTV even with its 480p signal. We'd imagine that things could be improved vastly even with upscaling to a native HD signal, which leads many hoping for a Wii HD.

Sadly, it seems that Nintendo doesn't feel the same way. Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime told GameTrailers TV in certain terms that a Wii HD isn't coming.

Reggie: Michael [Pachter] continues to be the only one who believes that this is gonna happen. I don't know how forcefully we can say there is no Wii HD.
