CVG: Next Nintendo console to "add more capability", promises NOA big man
So now he's taking about it. The Wii 2 is not "far away." Two years I say.
after seizing the casual gaming market and making a boatload of cash on the Wii they'll put out a console that can not only produce HD games but HD games with at least the visual fidelity we've seen on PS3 and 360 this gen and do away with those friend codes. Oh and a better controller is a must.
Wii friends codes is not a limitation. Nintendo made their online structure like this because this is a console made for the family and they don't want little kids talking to strangers.
I don't trust him.
Sounds like they're going to add DVD support. Watch out Sony and MS.
^^^ 2 more gens and maybe a hard drive - nintendo future proofing!!!- sorry couldn't help it
Wireless waggle would be nice and graphics close to the best next gen to get more 3rd party support. I think current Wii owners may consider upgrading to a more expensive next gen HD-Wii console as long as it's under $300, is backward compatible and has a big enough difference in graphics to warrant an upgrade. Next gen Nintendo will face bigger competition due to the competition embracing motion controls out the box fully. Will be interesting to see what road Nintendo follow. EDIT: WTF IS UP WITH THESE AUDIO AD STREAMS AND VID ADS N4G. A SURE SIGN OF A LOW QUALITY SITE. FIX IT OR PLENTY? WILL LEAVE.
This one should be better than the current one man nes, nintendo 64 and gamecube are way better than the wii
last week wii 2 did not exist according to somebody. well cheers to 2 more years. this e3 belongs to the ds2 and psp2
YAWN!! Whatever Reggie!! The only reason I bought a Wii is because my kids begged for it. I already had a 360, PS3, and PC for gaming. Reaching into my pocket to pay for the Wii this past holiday was difficult knowing the graphics are horrible. Yea I know graphics aren't everything and I should pay attention to gameplay so let me put it like this. If you had two women with the exact same personalities, goals, etc but one was a supermodel from Sweden and the other was some ridiculously ugly chick with bad hygiene, which one would you want to bring home to "play" with?
Nintendo can be very feared if nintendo console are powerful enough to equal sony's machine, but that would scare away the babies.
in gaming terms you need a second console rofl
Probably by the end of this year. Nintendo sales have dropped drastically year over year.
Does this mean that - gasp - Patcher was correct?? Say it aint so Confirmed - these really are the end days
So you dominited with the NES and SNES. Then gave a very good run with N64 and Gamecube, but was bested by Sony. Now you wipe the floor with microsoft and Sony, although you ended up kind of losing the hardcore gamers. Now, with the huge amount of money you made this gen, you plan on making a brand new system that will be a beast machine and bring back hardcore gamers. If you do that and bring back hardcore games, then I can honestly say that I will buy this system.
Each Nintendo generation looses more and more credability with me. I am sure that there are some that would disagree with me, but Nintendo hasn't made a worthwhile system since the super nintendo. From the N64 on, generally, only nostalgic franchises have been any good. When was the last time we saw a new ip that was worth anything. What happended to the creativity that spawned incredible ips like Metroid, Zelda, and Mario. Don't tell me that the glorified tech demos that are Wii Sports and Wii Fit qualify, as these games are eroding the expansion of the video game medium as a serious expression. Nintendo has 4 old mares in its stable that it will probably rely on till the end of time. It would be nice if they bred a new horse.
@fallingdove Don't be too hard on nintendo. Their fanbase declined steadily since the NES - research the numbers. They needed a new audience. I agree that it would be nice if they could use their new fortunes to reward their stalwarts with a few more games each year though.
More? That must mean like DVD support! That would be fantastic. Oh wait its 2010.
like most of us: Atari, Nintendo, Sega, etc... but they lost me this generation with the Wii. I know it has some fun games and Mario never gets old, but I mean they really lost me with the seemingly total abandonment of hardcore gamers. I guess I really do love the profanity, loads of bullets, gratuitous over the top violence, and occasional nudity in games. But...and this is a huge but -- If Nintendo makes a complete about face and blows me away with PS3 like visuals in any of their games on the next console - then I will be forced to pick one up. There's one thing I know for sure & that's that Nintendo 1st party are crack gold just like SNE's, so for these to be realized in full HD glory will compel me to give in and purchase. Now what I'd like to know are what are some of the other features besides HD capability and a new controller they may bring to the table? Blu-Ray, WiFi, interchangeable HDD?
@ rambi80 Its difficult for me not to be hard on nintendo as I have such fond memories of playing their games growing up. But with the rediculous things they have done over the years, its as if my grandma was to stand up at e3, tell us all that 'she has been a gamer for life', tell us that 'she knows exactly what we want' and then try and shove digital romance novels down our throats. No Cammie Dunaway is not my grandma.. They are just completely out of touch, and the fact that their casual appeal is generating millions of dollars is forcing the video games industry to follow their incoherent lead. The blind leading the blind.
Reggie is the Peter Molyneux of Nintendo. He is an idiot.
Chances are, their next console wouldn't have 'Wii' or '2' in it's name. I don't think are all for numbers. I just hope third parties don't be such lazy a**es with this one. Nintendo can't be the only ones dishing out quality on their one own console.
No no... they will give us a crappy controller at launch and then release those legitimate controllers latter to make more money.
"If you had two women with the exact same personalities, goals, etc but one was a supermodel from Sweden and the other was some ridiculously ugly chick with bad hygiene, which one would you want to bring home to "play" with?" Lol such a bad metaphor. Cause in fact "with the exact same personalities, goals" means they do the same thing. Thats all the PS3/360/Wii do. The only difference is horse power. Their "looks and hygiene" become obsolete(they dont even fit in your statement). They do in fact play games, thats all that matters( for the rest its a matter of taste in the games you like). I don't know, but the more people try to make up metaphors or just plainly bashing the Wii...its as if they are trying to dismiss all consoles before this gen. Because they never had the horse power of this generation.
What I meant by my metaphor is that you can get great gameplay on all three consoles (thus the same personalities, goals, etc comment). However, the presentation (looks, i.e. Supermodel or Ugly/Bad Hygiene Chick) makes the "experience" a lot better. I'm not bashing the Wii, i'm a 80s baby so playing all the old classics brings back a lot of memories. But come on man for us hardcore gamers the Wii is a joke.
Compared to the other 2, yes the Wii lacks lots of games. But No i dont think its a "joke" , since im not into this "hardcore" nonsense. As for "experiences" being better, i doubt that. It just depends on the project/concept. It all comes down to Design. I dont mind people hating the Wii, its a machine after all. But i do mind people who claim they can only play games if the hardware is up to date. I could still play games on the Gameboy classic and enjoy them as games of today. To each his own i guess.
i thought he said no WiiHD... or could this be a whole new console concept all together?
I thought the exact same thing, back when there was that rumor floating about from Nintendo Fr. They stated their would be, Reggie later stated no. Now it seems like he's back on the topic.
Read the quote, it's talking about the next step for nintendo being more than HD. He says it will happen when they have provided all experiences to the consumer from the existing wii, which he says they haven't come close to doing.
Wii VITALITY SENSOR!!!!
Typical N4G people. He said there was No WII HD. the Wii with just HD added. He never said there wouldnt be another console...
"Also a marketplace for demos, trailers, etc. " Ahh there is. It's called the nintendo channel. You can download demos for your DS, watch traliers, interviews and heaps of other crap. Shows how much some of you really know...
Therw will be no Wii-HD, as people like to call it. If there is a next console, its not called Wii-HD nor will it just be HD. Thats all.
That's good to hear. They need to get rid of the Friend Codes and have a good online network set up with user names and universal friends list. Also a marketplace for demos, trailers, etc.
is there no other picture for reggie??
The what? Pic and the one where he is wildly flailing is arms about like an idiot.
Thanks - i was kinda curious
Any other pic might let us forget that this site is a joke.
Didn't they say there was no plans to upgrade because the Wii has those capabilities already? LIAR!
thats what i thought well i have no plans to even buy the 1st wii its overpriced ill maybe buy if the pump out more of they franchises how many studios nintendo got anyway
more then Microsoft and less then Sony
He says that the Wii still has alot of potential in terms of experiences. It seems like we'll be seeing more Wii Sports Resort and Nintendogs in the near future.
I wonder how it will be compared to ps4/xbox720. It'll probably just be what a 360 is now.. I doubt Nintnedo will try to make it as powerful as the other 2.
All I want to know is when is there going to be a next gen HD version of Balloon Fight and Urban Champion!?
REGGIE I HOPE YOU SENT MONEY TO YOUR PEOPLE IN HAITI. THEY NEED SUPPORT
Just a few months ago on Gametrailers, Reggie flat out denied the existence of a wii HD to Geoff Kieghly.
"In terms of what the future holds, we've gone on record to say that the ***next step**** for Nintendo in home console will not be to simply make it HD, but to add more and more capability," he added. "We'll do that ***when we totally tapped out all of the experiences for the existing Wii and we are nowhere near doing that yet***, so lots of ongoing opportunity for the consumer in the current generation." Reading comprehension is a problem in 10% of these posts.
It's also a DVD upgrade! jk
I hope wii 2 have a regular controller instead of a weed wacker mote and some SNES games for crying out loud!!!
Like 2d mario or castlevania or gradius... (protip: turn the wiimote sideways)
"I hope wii 2 have a regular controller instead of a weed wacker mote and some SNES games for crying out loud!!! " Ahh it does. Its called the "Classic Controller". It actually is usuable in many games including mario kart and smash bros. Plus many more. On top of the the wii remtoe is a NES controller also. You guys seriously have no idea about something you bag out so often.
They haven't even tapped the Wii, they aren't gonna go HD till they get all the money they can from the Wii. That could take years.
As you read his quote unlike the other posters here that's exactly what he says: "In terms of what the future holds, we've gone on record to say that the next step for Nintendo in home console will not be to simply make it HD, but to add more and more capability," "***We'll do that when we totally tapped out all of the experiences for the existing Wii and we are nowhere near doing that yet, so lots of ongoing opportunity for the consumer in the current generation.***"
I will not buy a Wii 2 unless its as powerful as the PS4 and the xbox 720! "fool me once, shame on — [pauses] - shame on you. Fool me — You can't get fooled again." George W. Bush LOL
Because the more powerful the console the more fun the games, right?
Duh, all the fun fills up the ram.
Console manufacturers don't need to sacrifice graphics for fun. You can have both with a PS3. So obviously Nintendo can push graphics and still make their style of games that we all know and love. It is because you guys keep making excuses for Nintendo and Microsoft that is why all gamers are getting short changed. When next gen arrives and we get a PS3.5, Xbox 360.5, and Wii 1.5, we can thank all the Nintendo and Microsoft fans for their complacency.
It'll happen eventually. At the moment their little old wii is destroying both of the hd consoles, combined. And with the line up this year, I don't think they're too worried about it.
nintendo is releasing a mario, metroid, zelda in one year which has never been done before and all of you wii haters still bash nintendo for not being hardcore.
woot woot long live the nintendo company!! they the only one who actually try something a lil unique and different even if many people criticize them for it. wii hd is gonna be a killer. i wonder what they have in stored for it. but enough about that this year is one great year for nintendo
when was the last time nintendo deliver a amazing console worth ur money hahahahah.they can talk it but i promise u they wont deliver a good console at all thats all BSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS.They gonna make another cheap ass console n sell it to dumb ppl that dnt knw crapp about console.They just going to attract kids once again, thats y im glad that Natal and ps3 motion controller is coming thank god take nintendo out for good
Yeah, because forget buying a gaming console for the sake of gaming on it. It has to be a power house of power in order to be worth something, right? Fufufu Laughable. Hm, so the Wii is a crap console yet it can have great titles like Super Mario Glalxy, which is the highest rated exclusive this gen, or games like Monster Hunter 3, Metroid Prime Trilogy, Punch-Out, etc. Yeah, let's forget the games and care more-so about it's hardware. We were so doing that last gen right? The PS2 was the weakest, so it must have been--- you know-- cheap? It must have not been worth buying, even though it had games like GTA, GoW, SotC, etc. right? Seriously, the mentality of some of these "gamers" these days is sickening.
looking forward to the next gen, needs some data specs of HW. Show me some new capabilities... My wii is going to go overload once I move soon, lot of local play... I hope they don't kill off local play, but make sure online play is always avail though.
thats right Nintendo, i knew you're not content at making average looking games. yes, give me a once-again visually stunning Zelda and Metroid with even better motion controls and i WILL buy your next console. (skipped the Wii as you might tell from the tone of this comment).
