Not going to happen this generation.
That would completely destroy the main advantage it has over the PS3 & 360, it's price.
While it costs more to produce a PS3 or 360 than what they are sold for at retail the wii has made a profit from day 1.
I don't care how good wii sports looks in HD no one is going to pay $450+ for a wii, the gimmicky controller wears thin soon & there is just no games for it other than wii sports & Zelda (both launch games) & wii sports was a free bundle.
I have several friends with wii's & they are just collecting dust unless a niece or nephew come over.
Nope Nintendo will not go HD on the wii, they had a brilliant marketing idea, by repackaging the slow selling game cube with a "cool" controller & packaging it with the best game for the wii so far they have sold a ton of them & made a profit from the start.
maybe in 5 years the next gen wii will be HD, by then it will be much cheaper to implement.
