Will Nintendo announce a new HD system?

The Nintendo Wii may be on its way out, according to several media outlets.

Tech site Arstechnica.com says that reports are surfacing that Nintendo will be announcing a new high-definition system before the Electronic Entertainment Expo(E3) in June. Sites like Game Informer say they have confirmed that the system will be capable of running games at high-definition, but the actual specs are unknown.

IGN is reporting that the announcement will come this month before an official reveal at E3. They add that their sources say the console will be more powerful than the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

The announcement rumors come as another rumor was being spread around that the Wii would be seeing a price drop to $150.
