Analyst says HDTV penetration not as good as expected

“Although the penetration of HD has been impressive, I believed, and was correct, that this penetration would not attain a level that could support the level of installed base of second-generation consoles which are non-HD. The Wii can be enjoyed on regular-resolution televisions without paying a premium,” said one analyst in speaking with News Factor on HDTV.

So is Wii proof that the world banked too early on HDTV? Early signs seem to suggest that, though HD will be inevitable (and appreciated). I loves me some HDTV, but I love gaming more. If I can get some sweet games at a much lower cost for the time being, I’m down.
