Could the rumoured Wii 2 HD be named the Nintendo Zii?

Gaming, Tech Digest news

black wii.jpgThe Nintendo rumour-mill went into a frenzy today as Sillicon Era revealed that Nintendo have bagged the trademark for the name “Zii” in Japan.

So what is the Zii? The terms of the trademark mean it could be used for anything from a single game right through to a whole new console, so really anything is possible.

Could it be the often-rumoured Wii HD, the Wii 2 with Blu-ray capabilities and HD gaming? Who knows, but falling hardware sales mean that Nintendo may be forced to show their hand sooner than they would have liked.
