CC: Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime has stated that the platform giant will start thinking about the development of the Wii successor, when an idea comes forward that can't be executed on the current system.
Wii 2 huh? shud be interesting i suppose :)
HD please! Otherwise the Wii 2 will be almost definitely doomed against the Xbox 360 and PS3.
Nintendo's approach is interesting by introducing new hardware only when new experiences are available, but it begs the question: What the heck happened to the Nintendo DSi XL and the freaken DSi? What new experiences are there? I call BS! Nintendo will kick start the next generation of console cycle! Although, I think they will be fine with the Wii. They just need another killer software for the casuals like Wii Fit.
When I said 'doomed', I meant it like the sales won't be as impressive as this time round, this quickly.
They are not interested in HD or 3D material!
the hypocrisy of some the people on this site. only until sony announced their own wii controller did nintendo posts became relevant. it is really said that some of you belittled the wii remote and now that sony as their own, all of a sudden the wii-mote is ok. unbelievable
The longer this generation lasts the better.
Just remembered Nintendo was gonna do HD later on 5 years I think after it's release of the Wii. @3sexty rulzzz I'm gonna assume people are mad because the Wii is doing really good by bringing in the casuals and doing that with very good sales and numbers while putting the PS3 and 360 in 2nd/3rd position. That's just my assumption.
Maybe that is right for some people, but for people like me I got the wii before the ps3 and the wii mote was woeful. I could sit on the couch flicking my wrist to play any game in wii sports, it just wasn't accurate at all it was cheap. Sony's one is very accurate and I'm as excited for it as I was before I got the wii. Just hope Sony doesn't let me down like Nintendo did. Just thinking about their ads for red steel where he swung the sword and the guy did the same motion... It was his only god damn motion pressing A would've done the same thing.
I think Nintendo are worried, expect "Wii Too" shortly ? lol Looking forward to see what effect - if any - Playstaion Move has, if it will take off into the millions or simply be forgotten in a couple of years.
@IDLE DSxl is purely made for people with bad eye-sight. Then America needed to promote it as well and just added some BS to it. I say DSi was a better move from the normal DSL because of the online shops and such. Even though i only own a DSL
Playstation Move > Wii?
Maybe, well I hope so because it's took them over 3 years to come up with it.
Part of Wii's success is the recognizable characters such as mario, donkey kong, metroid, zelda, link etc etc. Nintendo was the best way back in the 80's early 90's with nes and snes. Their system is ideal for casual gamers and kids.
we all know that hardware developers will make a new console but it just a matter of time and when. beside i know they wont leaked it cuz otherwise microsoft and sony will try to steal their idea, or maybe call them out like its a gimmicky lol
'beside i know they wont leaked it cuz otherwise microsoft and sony will try to steal their idea, or maybe call them out like its a gimmicky lol' And then release their own copies a few years later LOL.
I see no need for a new Wii just yet. DS 2 on the other hand...
New DS should be on show at E3.
It's called Playstation Move. Natal just lags behind.
Because you played Natal to know....
Me neither, no Wii 2, not yet.
How about HD Graphics Reggie. Can you do that on the current system. The PS3 only does everything now.
The PS3 and Xbox360 barely do HD graphics as it is. Maybe the New Wii cando full HD at 60fps with real AA. That would be nice
Well not everything. There always something a system can't do..
That "does everything" line is getting old. It DOESN'T do everything. But since you're on about HD does it do Netflix HD like Xbox 360? didn't think so.
@6.2 Actually yes, the PS3 does do Netflix HD just fine. Edit: I meant this for 6.3. My bad.
Yeah...the PS3 does HD Netflix streaming. Lol. NOOB!!!
I didn't say anything about Netflix
Do you guys really think that Nintendo is just going to sit with its thumb up its ass while Sony and M$ launch much more compelling alternatives to the Wii, and allow all those wii owners looking for a new experience to migrate to another platform? Bwahahahahaahahaha........ Wii 2 HD+ will release in fall 2010 GUARANTEED!
"However, Reggie later stated that the company is "not interested" in both HD and 3D technology." Besides We already have two HD giants anyway a wii HD would be a 50/50 thing sell or fail. Edit: @frankymv oh ok
Nintendo is not interested in implementing HD and 3D SIMULTANEOUSLY; They ARE however interested in implementing HD with some OTHER innovation. Even if they decide not to go the HD route, they will launch a new console by years end.
Silly rabbit you can't play graphics which is why Sony copied them. You can just look at the move stuff and it becomes boring before you even try it out. Realism has to be the most boring art style ever. Seriously they have more in store. On top of this their system works the best on sd tvs. Is still cheaper and smaller. Games cost less and it still has wii fit and tons of nintendo games. The wii already has accurate wiimote with motion plus. The name even sounds better. Give them 2-3 more years and we will see interfaces or a market that wants some thing new. The Sony psmove will prove hd is not needed yet. Sure the ps fans will buy it but will they make new fans? Only time will tell while Sony still lacks a compelling style with in their me too products.
translation: "we'll see how viable the sony and msft threats are with their motion control offerings, If they take a nice chunk out of our sales we'll release the WiiHD that we've had in waiting for the past 2 years. We just decided not to release it because the current wii has been such a cash cow and there is no reason to rock boat."
"Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime has stated that the platform giant will start thinking about the development of the Wii successor, when an idea comes forward that can't be executed on the current system." Um. Basically anything on the PS3??? Can't do God of War 3, MGS4, Uncharted 1/2, Demons Souls, etc. etc. the list goes on and on. Unless he means by THEIR standards which are much lower than the rest of us, in which case fine, either way Nintendo is a joke now.
" Can't do God of War 3, MGS4, Uncharted 1/2" Done on PS2 and Ps2 and if we compare that third one to SoTC, on the PS2(the whole physic based interpolation of character movement). He isn't specifically talking about horsepower or whatever, MGS4 could easily be done on the Wii, just not with all the graphical power. He is more aiming at how games could be played. Again you are just spreading bias nonsense.
"Um. Basically anything on the PS3??? " exactly my point angryfork. Bubbles!
wouldnt that be HD
Playstation Move scared you that bad Reggie? Day after reveal he announces there might be WiiHD? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
Errr...its not the first time he said this. He said the same thing a year ago. HE just keeps repeating the same stuff, just in a different way. Sony got sh/t to do with this. Once a console is released the DEV team will start with a new one.
AngryFork wish i could disagree but nintendo have just let me down this generation no hd half gig memory compulsory motion controls shovelware lack in good exclusive. Now the ps3 has motion controls dont think wii has chance now lot casual gamers going to rush out by ps3 all needs now is little price drop or maybe sell the ps3 with ps3 move+ps3eye+ps3 sub for the same price.
Wii 2 is not needed yet. I do think move will be a much better experience but I dont think it will suck in as many casual gamers. Most of them already have one console so why get another. Nintendo succeeded in making everybody think they need a wii and it seems as if half the wii owners dont even use their system. I dont think sony can do that. PS3 is 300 plus another 100 with motion thing is double the price of the Wii. At least current PS3 owners are interested in it.
now that Sony can basically get any of our games that aren't 1st party, and the fact that they will have a more accurate precise motion controller and better graphics then what we currently offer we need to do something asap.
Why do they need to do anything when their 1st party games this year are going to be massive? Are you kidding me? Take a look at how well the last Mario game done, and then think about how Mario Galaxy 2, Other M and Zelda are going to do. Their 3rd party list may not be strong, but tbh Nintendo has always let their own games do most of the talking for them.
Are all Sony fans morons? I have to ask because not one of you has used the Sex toy they call a controller and yet you just assume that 2 controllers that work off the SAME EXACT principle are going to be completely different... It's like 1:1 is something you cannot comprehend. Sony isnt going to do better than 1:1 and thats what the Wii with motion plus is. I even saw one fanboy posting about the Wii HD and how they had it 2 years ago... I will NEVER support a Sony product as long as their fanbase is filled with completely clueless morons... You kids are the very reason I sold my PS3 6 months after its release. Maybe its just a sign that not a single Sony fan I have ever run across has an IQ over 80... Just listening to some of the moronic stuff you guys post is laughable.
The move is not more accurate. I'm pertty sure they might be using the same type of gyro that nintendo is using in the motion plus. Plus Sony has no gyro in the nun chuck come on really. The idea that the light has to change color for it to be seen? Motion blur is going to real havoc with this watch. The faster you move the worst the controls will be. Yet the wii uses ir light why this was not added to the psmove. If you though sun light killed the wiimote wait till the move runs out of colors to use in some girls room full of brightly color stuffed animals. Clearly you guys have not tried the motion plus. It also came out over a year ago lol. I think the casuals are more informed than the Sony fans right now wow! On top of that sony's own fan base will not except these controls because they where brainwashed not to like them. Plus Sony gets to prove if hd is need for motion controls. I think we all know that answer yet this all works in nintendos favor when the next system comes out 3rd parties will have better control set ups for motion based game play.
I dont see any other affordable tech Nintendo can use so with all that money they made this gen is see the best bet is probally to be first to launch with most powerful console until some other tech they can use becomes affordable.
Good if their is a Wii 2 coming out I hope nintendo put a blu-ray player in it this time around cause we can game in High Definition.
I say they opt out of Blu-Ray altogether as its too slow and go one step forward. Put in SSD inside or a massive HDD the Wii2 and make it capable of playing ALL games at 1080p with minimum 4xAA unlike the PS3 and Xbox360.
they dont need blu-ray if they gonna go holographic storage but we see when the time come.
Nintendo is the only platform holders that don't have experience building HD games and building games for parallel processing. I think they may have a steep learning curve when they finally release a system with a parallel processor...
fully compatible with Wii and Gcn games all games must to mandatory full 1080p @ 60fps Motion+ built in to Wiimote's from start upgraded Nintendo WiFi Connection and........ Retinal scan, that's right F'N retinal scan
I would like to see [email protected]+ with 4xAA. You know stuff the PC did years before these consoles came out. Wii2 would kick ass if they made ALL their games run like this
Well we got the Wii so I think Nintendo should stick with the bodily excrements when naming their console and call their next console the Poo.
