Nintendo247 Author writes - I know it’s a little early to speculate on what Nintendo might be brewing up for their next home console, but we can’t help but think of what we would want to see in Nintendo’s future release.
"This is more of a preference than a necessity. Although we would love to see game cartridges come back, we also know that disks are cheaper to produce. Nowadays you can easily store massive amounts of data on a Flash drive. Nintendo could incorporate something similar to a DS/3DS cart, but slightly bigger. Think of a 3.5” Floppy Disk and you can kind of imagine what I’m envisioning" You are mad. That is the worst idea I have ever heard. Nintendo needs to go the other way and make their consoles play DVDs and Blu Ray discs. Not go even more obscure.
I thought people just stream movies online, lol.
The system needs more power. And Nintendo will not make another home console.. Atleast not next generation. It will be a combo handheld/home console.
@Alinea They do. Only tools and fools actually buy their movies on price-gouged Blu-ray Disc in mid-2014. The rest of us simply pay $4.99 to watch it one time from the streaming/download service of our choice, WITHOUT the hassle of offensive anti-piracy ads (the irony of telling paying customers to NOT pirate their movies is apparently lost on these dumbass studios) and mandatory previews.
The author is not alone on this. I also think that going back to game carts would be amazing if all the consoles did it. Yes, I get that discs are much cheaper. I really do. However, that's more a benefit for the game companies, not for ourselves as consumers. Carts load much, much faster than any disc media, and that's a fact. Faster loading games is something I'd prefer over game publishers saving some money. As for blu ray playback... I already have a perfectly serviceable PS3 for that, and I won't mind holding onto it for movie playback if needed. Of course it's nice to have a multimedia console, but for me, game performance is a priority above everything else.
If physical is going to continue I would much prefer it to be via some type of flash memory instead of disc, discs and disc drives need to be a thing of the past in the next gen there are just so many positives to using flash over disc in 3 to 4 years time that will only increase.
Keeping up with crowd is what i want to see from next nintendo console.
get developer feedback make actual tech that's on par or better than sony/ms much better launch lineup Get games on my steady bases invest some money into buying more studios so game development can be more speed up process
I don't think Nintendo needs to invest money in buying more studios. They should invest that money in paying big third party games to appear on their system (They can have exclusive deals but they need them to appear first). One of the biggest issues Nintendo has and will ever face is lack of support by third parties. Now this could be done to power differences or they don't sell well on Nintendo systems but Nintendo needs to sort it out.
It is that easy. Nintendo has a lot of money and I don't see why they just do not do that.
totally agree, if they combined developing time for 1OS with multiple hardware outlets as they announced or if the Nintendo fusion is true then droughts will be very unlikely Imagine the combined no of handheld & console games they can produce a year (around 18 when i counted) that work on a single platform
Raw power equal to what the ps5/xbone 2 will be to help with there 3rd party mistakes. Not owned a Nintendo since 64
Or at least powerful enough to support next gen engines. Also if they used X86 like the other systems ports would be much either. A combination of these two things will reduce development costs for 3rd parties significantly and would bring more 3rd party support to the system. I dont mind if Nintendo tries to be innovative but they really need to make things easier for 3rd parties.
You're missing out then ... Also gamecube was more powerful than the PS2 and we know what happened then.. Power doesn't mean everything
In terms of power I'd like to see how the PS4 fares over time. UC4 and The Order look really good for a year in, so the strength advantage the WiiU has over PS3 could suffice when applied to the next gen (the more the merrier). Any price between $300 and $400, the best it can get The gamepad in its current state works really well as is, with some improvements in design, quality, and functionality it would be widely accepted and used in a wide spread of games. Shouldn't have to buy a "Pro Controller" to feel like you're using a core game controller (not that I think the gamepad doesn't work well currently) A name other than Wii please. The name "Wii" doesn't have the power of "iPod", it's not a marketing hook. Go back to the convention where every Nintendo console began by saying "Nintendo _____". Nintendo consoles need to be synonymous with Nintendo, not Wii For general architecture Nintendo needs to use whatever is industry standard, use something every normal Dev can utilize and understand without needing to take a new course. Games from one platform need to be ported easily onto the next console. And please allow us to upload games from WiiU, 3DS, and DS*blank* onto the new system, even if we have to pay a tiny fee for each game Some sort of "Fusion" for console-handheld interaction would be awesome. Have remote play, such as the ability to play load games onto the gamepad and be able to take it with you to other places. Be able to use the DD*blank* as a second controller.
A Steam-like account based system so that when I buy my next Nintendo system, every digital Nintendo game I've ever bought is right there for the playing. Also, disc backwards compatibility with the GC, Wii & Wii U would be nice. By the time it comes out it will probably be a little more powerful than the PS4 which is fine. I can't imagine what would require a ridiculous amount more power than that in 2018 (calling it now).
Pokemon Stadium 3, using no controller, just voice commands.
A Coffee Maker, like they promised. (WiiU was Codenamed: "Project Café") OT Personally- I am not a power-nut, but 1)I think that they need an Architecture that is easily tap-able for lazy porters. 2)They also need to have a 1st/2nd or Partnership w/ a 3rd Party Photo-Realistic game. 3)And they need a game that sells/showcases the concept of the system (motion control, 2nd screen...) I say all of this because I think it will ward-off some of the criticisms of the haters and they won't have to spend so much time and money fighting to get above the rumors and slander. Other than that all I can say is more of the same, done smarter and more efficiently.
I just hope that Nintendo wont ditch the Wii U gamepad for next gen Wii U successor. It is one of the best gamepad imo... Of ciurse as a 2nd screen as well.
a regular controller good account system VR goggles intel cpu and a really good nvidia gpu
Hardcore shooting games
RPG's and JRPG's please. 3DS has got those genres covered pretty well if you ask me just wish there'd be some for the Wii U actually i'd like more JRPG's on consoles in general regardless of the platform... ofcourse i would be happy about PC release too... JRPG's on PC... as if ;_;
Nintendo do best when they are innovating in the current gaming market, they need a decent spec system that has some great gaming innovations that gets people talking about, the tablet based controller just didn't do it for them this time around. They also need a good name wii u was an odd choice.
Sounds like people want Nintendo to put ideas in play that would not only have them selling less than 10 million units but also raising the price of their games and limiting the space; USB drives, game cart, DS/3DS carts. I just want them to stop with the gimmckier, bring some new games and a more powerful console, then I wouldnt have to wait for their systems to be 40-60$ at the flea market before I add them to my collection.
Something without the word "Wii" in it.
1. Hardware - People may not like this but Nintendo has to ride it out for the 5 plus year life span. If they make a system more powerful than the PS4 then the competition will have a more powerful system. I know people don't want to hear this but it's not as simple as some think. When you don't make a ton of money you have to manage your money wisely. 2. Controller I love the game pad and I think that there is an opportunity to make it better. Add a separate CPU to increase range. also it should be able to communicate with the home system. 3. Next Handheld it has to be able to communicate with the Next home system. That way buy a game for the handheld you can play it n the big screen and vice verca. 4. Have members of Nintendo work with 3rd party developers on maybe a few games to get them familiar with the system.Don't pay for DLC and content but let developers keep the profit or made it profitable for them to have there games on the system.
Cartridges.....coming from a nes collector start remaking all the nes classics in cart form but in high definition. Design it to look like the nes too!
