Nintendo Wants Its Next “Next-Gen System To Turn Heads”

Satoru Iwata says that he want’s the next next generation console from Nintendo to really turn heads once it’s released. (Next-Gen, Nintendo)

A bit too early to talk about that no?

Unless of course, the Wii U is some sort of elaborate stop-gap for the next next generation which I doubt it is.

Well its going to get out dated in 2 or so years..
Root  +   709d ago
If that happens third party support will drop from it one after another.

I want to know if they have a back up plan...because they must know this is going to happen

This is further proof that Nintendo themselves know that this console will be in serious trouble within a year and a half. I can't wait to buy a PS4,

Ok this statement from Nintendo is wayyyy to early to hand out like that. It's been what 2 months since the launch of Wii U (Please do correct me if I am wrong as I am not sure about it) and they are already discussing the next next gen console?

I don't own a Wii U and neither do I plan to get one but I hope it does well. We need all these big players to keep launching new consoles and be competitive. It only helps us, the consumers.

I just bought a Wii u so I hope its here for a while. Nintendo needs to get their first party games out there and not worry about next gen for now. Wii u can succeed as long as Nintendo keeps its focus on it and the games are there.

My head is turned...toward getting a PS4 when it launches.
IAMERROR  +   709d ago
you spelled xbox wrong
CraigandDayDay  +   709d ago
No I believe he just wants a PS4. lol Nothing wrong with that. I do too. I'm all for getting free online access to my already-bought $60 new game.

The Xbox will be good too, but it will be my secondary console if I do get one.

@CraigandDayDay
Not only PSN is free. PS+ is a steal also.
IAMERROR  +   709d ago
If it was vice versa I would be getting tons of agrees lmao! N4G minds well brand this site as a sony one.

My original post was a joke, I think it's hilarious how the Sony fanboys (90% of the total pop here) have to bring up Sony in every Nintendo/Xbox article and leave negative comments. Get a grip bros, you're making Sony fans look as rampant as the blood on the dance floor fans.

Lol Xbox The rip off machine.
zebramocha  +   709d ago
@iam your joke was not funny or clever.
IAMERROR  +   709d ago
Lol did I claim it was? It was more or less to prove a point

Well that was my last bubble, if anyone actually wants a response PM me. Doubt I'll get any, it's all about putting on show haha <3
zeeshan  +   709d ago
@IM: Then that just makes you a bitter, BITTER man and a troll may I add.
kayoss  +   709d ago
@iamerror... I think you spelled your name wrong it should be " iamanidiot". It fits you better, because the only point you made is that you come off as an idiot. But of course you knew that because clowns put up a good show by making a fool of themself.

Back to the topic. If Nintendo releases another console in 2 years, I'm done with them.
FlyingFoxy  +   709d ago
I have to admit, Microsoft are not using the developers they have to their fullest.. whatever happened to funny adventure games? lately it seems Xbox is all about FPS games and not much more, which is no good to me because i honestly enjoy FPS games on PC but not console since the 64 days. for fun and performance PC is best for those games and some others.

I might look toward PS4 if it has some cool adventure games similar to Banjo Kazooie etc.. like you can't get on PC.

Plus you don't have to pay to play online, XBL is a bit of a joke not letting you play online unless you have gold membership.. i mean come on! even the best game service Steam is free.
MASTER_RAIDEN  +   709d ago
honestly just gets me pissed to read something like this. your next system?! you JUST finished up the development of your new system less than a year ago, and believe me...that thing aint turnin any heads the way it should.

keep dreaming in mario.
Riderz1337  +   709d ago
How about you get the Wii U to turn heads, and not for all the wrong reasons this time please.
360ICE  +   709d ago
To be fair, I have to turn my head every time I want to switch between looking at the controller and the TV. Mission complete, Nintendo.
metroidfusion2  +   709d ago
Ha ha lol dumbass people are reading this wrong
Pillsbury1  +   709d ago
I don't know why people are getting upset, technology companies plan years in advance that's how they stay relevant. When the ps4 comes out I'm sure Sony will be in early planning and research for ps5. It's not like Nintendo is going to release another console this year, people overreact.
AWBrawler  +   708d ago
Yes. thank you. Nintendo is always planning ahead for the next generation.
J86blum  +   709d ago
o.O wasn't that the WiiU? if all of its games stayed ZombiU graphic wise then they have something. and no more side-scrolling mario's keep it 3d, 3rd person style like 64, and galaxy cause they have something there. release a new metroid and run graphics zombiU style on it, and make a series tone less cartoony Zelda title. and JRPGS bring more to the US. and a sequel to...(looks to icon) "Chrono Cross was junk."
sandman224  +   709d ago
I just played zombie u demo on my wii u. And graphically I wasn't impressed. It's a great game and I will buy it now that I know not to believe in all the bad reviews it got. But the graphics are so Xbox 360.

Zombie u is fun but have to agree the graphic is not impressive. But let's give it a year or so when developers can truly optimize it. Just like the ps3 and xbox.
chadboban  +   709d ago
Amazing how many folks are gonna read this all wrong and use Wii U as their virtual punching bag in the comments.
deadfrag  +   709d ago
Some comments on this poll are actually stupid!If people actually read the context before comment they will do a service to them selfs.Nintendo console cicles endure from four to five year,its obvious that Nintendo is already making R&D for the next home console,they have join the portable R&D team with the home console R&D team this week for a reason,and knowing this its obvious in what context we can put the comments from Satoru Iwata.He is not talking about console power in the future neither the lack of power in the WII U console,he is talking once more in evolving the gameplay and connectivity between devices and gamers with every new console that they end up releasing in the future!The Wii u is going to have support for atleast four to five year,until they release the next home system.

"When you turn on Revolution and see the graphics, you will say, "Wow."" - Iwata E3 2005
computeSci  +   709d ago
Did the graphics on the Wii make you say "wow"? I doubt it. Lets see on whatever they have to offer after the Wii U that will "turn heads". After the Revolution quote, I'd be cautious of what he says now. Just my 2 cents.
MilkMan  +   709d ago
He must be talking about when they release the updated Wii U. I'm sure of it.
mrbojingles  +   709d ago
That's kinda weak. Easily could be referring to Wii U and 3DS as next-gen since they've released recently
Hozi  +   709d ago
Turn heads can be a good thing but it can also be a bad thing.
wiiulee  +   709d ago
as we all learned xbox and ps4 will not be a quantum leap over ps3 and 360 so nintendo has the right idea...the gamepad turns head , being able to play tv free should turn heads and miiverse should turn heads...unless you're a hater...so nintendo has delivered
LOL_WUT  +   709d ago
I wish Nintendo would future proof their consoles instead of this 5 year thing they've been doing. If anything this just paints an ugly picture on the Wii U. ;)

Nintendo is printing money and people desperately try to bash them. Can`t wait for Monolith`s next gameuuuuu!
NavydAd  +   708d ago
As a wii U owner this is kinf od sad. Its basically saying their turning their back on us already. As many know here I just got back into gaming and so far have been let down by the wii U. Maybe I started at a wrong time.
