E3 2014: Miyamoto on What's Next for Nintendo

This information comes from Shigeru Miyamoto, speaking with IGN:

“Well, we’re always experimenting with a lot of different kinds of new hardware. Certainly, we’ve put a focus more recently on what we can do to better improve the transition from one hardware system to the next. Going from GameCube to Wii, we were able to mature a smooth transition from one to the next in terms of the development environment. But with Wii to Wii U, there were some hurdles there that we had to overcome in making that transition to the new hardware system.” (3DS, E3, Shigeru Miyamoto, Wii U)

"Other than that, you can look forward to what comes next."

There's been a lot of talk on the internet with people suggesting Nintendo's next machine is a combined portable and home console so WOW to hear Miyamoto actually considering it. Wii U could do better so I really hope Nintendo carve a massive place for the self in the new game's market.

Also, Pilotwings. People want it.

Well last year Nintendo merged their hand held and home console divisions. I wrote here before, instead of putting their games on mobile devices which some think would net them billions. They will be the mobile device! In my opinion Nintendo is going to compete with smart phones and smart devices and probably win. Anything that takes attention away from their media is the enemy not just Sony and Microsoft but sports, broadcast television, movies, anything!!!!

It's hard to predict what Nintendo's next move will be hardware wise. They always try something a little different every generation. Nes, gameboy, Power Glove, Virtual Boy, Snes, Game boy color, gameboy advance, N64, Wii, DS, Wii U, 3DS, etc. Just takling a look back at it all even though everything isn't always well received by the public, it will definitely be exciting to see what they reveal.

Seriously, who ever doubted Nintendo couldn't turn it all around...noobs? Sure, the Wii U isnt head and shoulders above its 'competition' but (at present) its at least a level playing field, that after its slow start. Combine with with the successes of the 3DS and it looks for all intensive purposes Nintendo have a very strong hold over the current generation.

I'm not suggesting the Wii U or 3DS don't have their flaws - as does every machine, simply that with the hugely talented games designers installed at Nintendo, both machines are in very safe hands.

Only thing that could make my Wii U better is if it could warm up my pizza pockets.

Only thing that would make my Wii U better is if it had more 3rd party support from developers who couldnt stop praising the console before launch then turning their backs on it acting like they never said anything about the Wii U to begin with.

They are probably in the planing stage,it's too early for us (the consumer)to think about the Next hardware from Nintendo.We know that it's going to be more powerful than the WII U that's for sure.The WII U is still young and there's plenty of life left in it.

Anything Nintendo is planning to release that would essentially "replace" the Wii U wont come for at least another 3 to 4 years. It may be even longer if they maintain the momentum they picked up this year and the Wii U gets really popular. Iwata already stated that he wont betray the Wii U supporters by releasing something too soon. Another reason i respect him dispite some of his leadership mistakes. Nintendo will release another console and you can bet it is much more powerful than Wii U, but it wont be for a while. The 3DS may see its replacement before the Wii U does though.

Tell that to the folks who think Nintendo are ditching Wii U by 2016 and/or want them to go third party.

I agree with you on everything and that's why i said they are in the planing stage.It takes years to build a product.
MSBAUSTX  +   139d ago
I know there are people saying that, but Nintendo isnt in the business of being liars. I cant remember a time the didnt do what they said. Of course money talks. So we will just have to wait and see what they have in store for the future. In the meantime we were just shown what awesome games we get to play before they do ditch the system and i am excited.
