Nintendo and Panasonic have joined forces to make easier-to-use game machines, Nihon Keizai Shimbun writes in a new report.
I wonder what's for dinner? Nexus 7 2013
When reading the headline, for a split second I thought it read "Philips" and I thought the same thing.
Panasonic made the 3do and then later went on to make the Panasonic Q which is a gamecube that was able to play DVD's. The Wii-Q maybe?
Looks like Nintendo might be planning out the successor to the Wii U already. I hope they give the Wii U a little bit more time to try and gain grounds with gamers. I love the Wii U! Sure there are things Nintendo could add to its online interactions but over all I find the system super enjoyable.
Umm no... Ninty isn't doing that but planning for a bigger future is all.. I love my Wii U I can't wait for more games!
Hey I'm with you. I'm not bashing Nintendo or the Wii U. I love the system. I can't wait for all the Nintendo greatness to come out this fall. I'm getting like one game for the PS4 and getting something like 6 or 7 games for my Wii U this fall.
As soon as Nintendo is done with a console, the next day, they start tinkering with it and working on both new models and next gen at same time. I'm sure they've been working on Wii U successor for a year now.
absolutely, they are always thinking ahead. The Wii U will still get its turn in the spotlight, and should be around for 5 years or more.
You guys may all be cheering them on but me as a consumer would it kill them to make a console that is a little more future proof? Hopefully they don't hold back on their next hardware. ;)
^ Actually thinks PS4 and Xbox One are future proofed. Yeah man, because RAM is all that's required to make your console more powerful. It's hilarious to see console gamers talk about tech specs as if they have a clue.
til 2015 rumor will occur
I would assume so. Every time Nintendo releases a console, they begin work on developing the next one.
Nintendo starting designing the Wii U months after the Wii was release. Of course they are planning its successor, but it won't be announced any time before 5 years has passed.
Nintendo is always planning their next console. Its how they do things
That's how EVERYONE do it
Abandoning the Wii U would do more harm than good in my opinion.
Nintendo is not gonna abounded the Wii u at least not yet
they never will til their next system launches
Just maybe this is the way they could compete a little better when it comes to the tech/graphics side of things.. Nintendo software is always on point for the big games anyways!
Competing with graphics is a fools decision. They compete with accessibility and cost.
Philips made the CDI.
Haha I know, but Nintendo and Philips teamed up to make those Zelda games that everybody loves, that's why I was lol'ing
well, Nintendo allowed Philips to use the licenses for Mario and Zelda, but Nintendo had ZERO involvement in them. There was no quality control on those abominations, hence the end result.
only thing Panasonic done up to this date is create the GC, Wii and Wii U optical discs.
actually, i believe there was a panasonic version gamecube. i saw that somewhere, and couldn't believe it at first...
Panasonic really That's like joining forces with coby
Yea in this case Samsung would've been a better deal. Next thing you know Panasonic comes out with a console of their own ;)
damn....beat me to it. well played boss...well played
Let these forces join to produce a Nintendo playstation; that is, a Wii U that can play blu-ray or at least DVD Even the ps2 can do the later !!!
if my memory serves me correctly, the Wii U Has A Mystery Port slot towards the bottom left end. who knows what it used for....it might be used for expansion/add on. Panasonic have experience with making expansion/add on devices for consoles. remember the 3D0 gaming console. Panasonic was making an expansion hardware for the 3D0 but it never got developed for unknown reasons. http://www.pcmag.com/slides...
