According to French site Gameblog.fr (linked above), Nintendo is planning to announce the previously rumored Wii 2 which is codenamed Wii HiFi at E3 2010 next week.
To quote from the site, roughly translated: "But beware, according to our information from developers, the 3DS should not be the only machine unveiled by Nintendo.
It is becoming increasingly clear that the manufacturer would conclude his lecture by unveiling its next home console, named Wii is currently code HiFi!
We learn in the aftermath the next home console from Big N would be calibrated for release in November 2011.
- It would have a power similar to that of an Xbox 360
- It should not be called "Wii 2", but Wii HiFi (in any case the code name leaked)
- It would be very oriented online
- One of the main features is the community
- It would be released in November 2011"

Beautiful announces pre-e3, finally we can hope an evolving wii plus a little like a wii but do not overdream. We'll see d-day..
does this mean that nintendo is finally bringing hd to one of it's consoles? a new wii without hd graphics would sell as well as ocean front property in colorado.
I am more surprised Nintendo hasn't given up yet, Nobody wants these crap systems which are terribly made and not reliable. They would have to do something and announce something besides a new mario to make me excited for one of these.
Yea, I'd think the whole Wii fad is dying down these days... only to be replaced by a slightly higher-tech version Motion Controller craze.
Man, Nintendo really went down the gutter. Do they think it's funny to be 10 years behind on technology?
According to VGChartz, the Wii is still selling significantly more hardware than the PS3 or 360. Yeah, the hardware is crap but they're still selling like hotcakes.
well lets see even if the wii is behind technology-wise it is sold more because it causes people to waggle a remote around and its fun heh while the ps3 came out a year later after them and the 360 was just messed up at launch the wii was reliable and family friendly.
