Nintendo's Shigeru Miyamoto had a few things to say about the future for the company's home consoles, which focused on remarks relating to the next Wii as well as 3D.
Good no need for a successor.
LMAO are you serious or are you kidding lol there needs to be a next gen nintendo console, the wii is becoming stale x)
Only sales dictate to Nintendo whether or not they need a new console. And the Wii is still selling very well to this day.
ur the stale one stick to ur ps3 or 360. its fresh for me. Ninty wii doesnt need to upgrade. ps3 and 360 need upgrade lol. be thankful that sony and ms are going to update to this gen. move and kinect are coming.
"Only sales dictate to Nintendo whether or not they need a new console. And the Wii is still selling very well to this day." This is certainly true, but slightly incomplete. The question of a successor system is not 'Is the current system making lots of money money?', but rather 'Is the current system making more or less money than a replacement would?' Granted, the answer is probably 'more' currently, but who knows what the situation in a year will look like?
Not anytime soon = 2012 so far. E3 2011 it might show up.
you serious? I would welcome a Wii HD any day
Its a waiting game for Nintendo and they have the luxury of time and money this time. They can not afford to repeat another Game Cube scenario. For another year or two their business will be doing fine. Sony had no choice but to come up with a PS3 even while the PS2 was doing very well to support and feed their other business home video optical medium - blu-ray. Now that HDTV adoption, Blu-ray adoption, 3D movie adoption and PS3 games adoption is picking up .... expect the PS3 adoption to pick up also.
its way toooo early for a new console
I don't know if I'd say it's TOO early. It'll be four years later this year. The 3DS was introduced six years after the DS, so I wonder how that'll compare to the next Wii.
It may be to early for the PS3 or 360, but not for the Wii. It just feels outdated.
yea your right xbox and ps3 are more uptodate on the hardware wii has been outdated since its release by its competitors and now its being thrown back to the ice ages because both ps3 and xbox will have 3d... well ps3 already has it :p... so come on nintendo step your game up dudes i feel bad for ya i guess theyll keep feeding the new generations more mario and yoshi like they did to us when we were growing up, kinda makes me sad...
3D..... Play it again Sam.... Nintendo has plenty of money, I'm pretty sure they are more than happy with the wii. And as for Mario and yoshi, can you come up with any better games?
this would be way too early, i'm expecting a reveal at E3 2012.
As long as people are happy with their Wii. But if the majority of the community demands it then I guess its time for a new Console.
majority says no :( .
Still rocks though. They took the Sony gameplan with the PS2, all about fun and games and not about graphics. That's why they are number 1 right now. Of course 3-D isn't the next Nintendo Step for a console. They already said if the market gets to 30 % then maybe. Considering the market for HDTV is only at 59% all these years later, I think we have a long wait.... Wii is solid though, for all the flack it gets, I mean it's not the "Cool console" but everyone owns one.
... u made bubbles for u.
Are a true gamer. Bubbles for great comment, that will hopefully remind people that Video Games are played for the fun.
I don't see any real reason for there to be a Wii successor anytime soon. So I'm not really bothered by this news. 7_7
... someone with some sense in n4g makes a smart statement. agreed zoidsraven i feel the same way. There must be a new feature or control schematic to make motion control a last gen thing or augment motion controls before I want a new successor to wii. 3d? lol i have seen 3d. too many times. unless its without glasses then no. not worth the huge price. rather invest in a 55 inch 120hz hdtv... wait isnt a 120hz tv 3d compatible?
no HD? F that. They are stuck in 98
I don't think I know anyone that owns an HDTV. I just don't understand why everyone is pushing HD when its only within the last few years..really come down in price. I might get one when the next TV "gimmick" comes out and becomes mainstream..ie 3D TVs...that garbage is going to die...I'm never getting a 3D TV..unless of course they figure out how to do it with no glasses. I already have to wear glasses to watch TV..do I really want to wear TWO pairs of glasses to enjoy a game...NO THANKS...but anyway...My Wii is great...the graphics are good...and i spend quite a bit of time with this "outdated" friend.
they are the most profitable current gen console on the market n outselling the 360 n ps3 combined dont see why they wouldnt want to rush to the gate with a new console sigh...
I just bought a Wii, so I hope that it will be out for another couple of years. An HD update would be nice, but is it really necessary? Especially considering most wii owners are casual and would not upgrade just to have HD. If the wii sales are still high in the next coming years, nintendo will have no reason to push for the next gen.
that's people's problem if they can't adapt to wii controller..for me - it's the best controller (and of course Gamecube's wavebird wireless :)) on topic: I don't need Wii HD too.. devs not even achieved wii's true graphics, like it was long ago with PS2..but time went and they achieved.. :) so we have to wait and see how it will go with wii :)
I'm not hung up on Wii not being all that powerful anymore. The system still offers something the other systems won't provide. Wii2 is going to be an amazing jump from Wii1 when it finally comes. (I hope)
