Nintendo Interested In Creating Multiple Hardware Devices

“If we manage to integrate our platforms successfully, we may in fact be able to make more platforms,” says Nintendo president, Satoru Iwata. (3DS, Nintendo, Nintendo DS, Wii, Wii U)

I wonder what other kinds of hardware, they have a console and handheld, maybe go with cellphone or tablet?

In Japan, i think, they already have gone the cellphone route.

3DS U or DS U in the works i heard Myamoto say something about a nextgen handheld when asked something about 3DS so i'm thinking a 720p/1080/3D Handheld that's very slim and about half the power of WiiU with same RAM and impressive browser and OS.

Think another WiiU with 4GB of Ram ect that's what they mean by more hardware same with a new handheld it would have the required RAM to handle everything the WiiU 2GB or 4GB model could ect.

On par with vita would be rubbish the current 3ds is graphically on par in most peoples eyes its better.

I think that would create a pretty big dichotomy between owners if they changed things that much.

I wouldn't be against a 3DS successor at Holiday 2014. Even if it was basically on par with Vita in terms of hardware.

A home PC would be nice. The original Famicom was an attempt at making a small home PC.

I kind of hope that they're trying to heel in on Sony and MS at some point by releasing a new console halfway into the next generation, instead of by the end like with the Wii U.

Wii U is the start of next gen. I know you probably don't consider it thus, and will therefore disagree with me(as will others), however, you younger gamers need to grow up and realize Nintendo is just some brand you can beat on. They produce some of the most high quality software, and innovative hardware experience available. That said, since the Wii U will be competing with the PS4/Durango, the device is next generation.

Further more Nintendo has been around for 2 generations longer than Sony, and 3 more than Microsoft. So if you want to accurately trace console generations, you really are better off using Nintendo.

Otherwise you'll have to start doing weird things like calling Sega Genesis and SNES generation -1, and NES generation -2, and that's just weird.

Super High-spec wii (maybee ven more powerful than the new xbox/ps4)?

Or a Hybrid handheld-home console?

Or a totally new type of harware?

Very interesting news...

i'd be interested in some hardware accessories. A Wii U signal extender would be fantastic. I bet it would increase the appeal of off TV play as well.

The wiiU gamepad design will be the new full blown DS, now wouldent that be awesome.
