AMD’s big annoucement

October 7, 2008

Now some of you may have heard AMD’s big annoucement and for those of you that haven’t I will explain:

AMD is shutting down their manufactering division to cut costs due to the recent losses in the market to Intel over the last few years. So they decided to create a new company and infuse $6 billion over five years into it.  The Foundry Company will also assume approximately $1.2 billion of AMD’s existing debt. AMD will first infuse $1.2 billion. This effectively means that AMD is not as powerful as they used to be and don’t have much left in them.

While consumers scramble in search of the elusive Wii, is Nintendo already providing glimpses into the console’s successor?

According to a blog post at What They Play, Nintendo is showing early presentations of its future console poised to arrive in 2011.  Citing industry sources, What They Play reports the device, dubbed “Wii HD”, will include high-definition graphics and an emphasis on digitally-distributed content.

Nintendo won’t remark on the claims, telling the site they don’t “comment on speculation or rumor.”

This follows a report over the weekend from a Japanese site claiming Nintendo will introduce a new version of DS before year’s end.  The revamped handheld would reportedly include a built-in camera, music player, and improved wireless functionality.

The answers to these rumors could arrive tomorrow, when Nintendo holds its fall media summit in San Francisco.  In the meantime, readers, what features would you like to see in a redesigned Wii or DS?

A new Wii?? That would be cool but Nintendo should do something about current Wii owners that don’t have HD. What do you guys think?
