Kotaku:Nintendo of America's top guy, Reggie Fils-Aime, told Kotaku today that a successor to the Wii doesn't have to come out in 2011.
Lol, you're not slick Regg. That's typical PR talk. And in no way is this saying that the next Nintendo console won't release next year. It's probably not a must, but it is a possibility.
wii2 wont come in 2011 thats already confirmed get over it. 2012 is.... possible but i wudnt get any hopes up.
I think it would be the best for Nintendo to telease it mid-late 2011. I don't know if that's even possible but I think the Wii will only go backwards from 2011 and the PS3 will skyrocket and close the gap up to 360. U don't need Pacther when I'm here.
i love how these kids tell us older gamers how it is going to play out, if you only new how ridiculous you look in our eyes... No Wii2 until fall 2012.
Agree 100% with you, if they were to release a new system as early as 2011, we would have heard about it, and for a long time now. A pretty good bet would be fall 2012 or later on.
I honestly think Nintendo need to update their hardware. While graphics aren't everything, Wii's look downright horrible for today. I had a look at FIFA 11 today and the game has such a low res, low poly, jaggies heaven looking aspect to it, it's just not right. iPhone games look better than some of these Wii games. On the flip side, games like Goldeneye look great for a Wii game but once again the aliasing lets the game down. All the HD remakes appearing on PS3 show that last gen graphics in HD aren't actually bad. Resolution helps a lot, and Nintendo need to realise this... So bring on Wii 2/HD I say. It's well overdue.
Nintendo should just officially support Dolphin rofl. Agreed resolutions do help alot i recently played GOW 1 on PCSX2 looks great in 1080p, gonna play Gow2 soon. No point waiting on these companies to rerelease classics, might even take alot at some of the other PS2 classics i got.
Well Nintendo had a great run with the Wii whilst it lasted but the appeal is more handheld related from what I can see. Maybe Nintendo should just stick with handhelds? Theres soo much news on Xbox 360 and PS3 games and new hardware I havent seen anything great or even general for the Wii in ages on N4G or anywhere.
... u look in the wrong sections.
I guess Sony being a few million behind the Wii in sales means they had a pretty poor run and their next console is coming out soon as well.
Few millions ? More like few dozen millions. But Sony fanboys are delusional anyway
Yeah a few million this year but it seems poor sales are good for Sony and even higher sales are doom for the Wii to some people. How they can be that stupid is beyond me
They haven't got anything to say, so they talk about the Wii 2. It's going to be sooner rather than later.
I say, that's a rather smart move of them. My guess is, the opt to wait for the PS3/360 to catch up a little, and not release the Wii successor too soon, for if they would, that would give Sony and Microsoft time to improve their own successors to either match or being improved over the Wii successor. But what i really want is that all the consoles to be successful, i dont really like playing favorites. My 2 cents.
You mean copy the next Nintendo console like they have done every generation.
they're probably gonna release it in fall 2012,just can't see the wii2 and 3ds being released in the same year
Can't wait for the next Nintendo console, untill then we have 3DS.
Yes, lawd. :)
the next wii console wont release next year with the 3ds there and with a new zelda, xenoblade, and the posibilities for last story/pikmin 3 in america for 2011 who cares and with dq X on the horizon
I thought all soccer moms and seniors in the US would have a Wii by now.
Wii 2 will game when nintendo deems it necessary
Ha, nintendo hates doing any updating or anything, the fact of the matter is a new system will come out with a tide better graphics and we all will be suckers and buy it, it will crap shovel ware games and nintendo will keep promising us a good zelda or metroid and then 3 years later we will get it after we suffered from rehash of mario baseball version 44. Seriously i remember when i loved this company now i just feel as if they dont really try anymore. Its like hey we got mario we dont really need to do anything your all riding our coattails anyway
if they would just allow someone to use content they purchased on more than one wii for one households use. This is my biggest pet peeve of the wii. I will not buy a wii 2 if this does not change.
Nintendo doesn't need the Wii 2 to release next year, are we forgetting about the 3DS? That will surely carry Nintendo until 2012/2013 for the Wii 2 to release.
lmao... Nintendo WILL release the wii successor in 2011.......whatever it is.
3ds and new console in the same year is not happening.
or it could be the greatest year in gaming history?
around 2012 we'll see another Nintendo console
Wii is gonna stick for a long time. This gaming gen is a little bit slower can can last longer than the last one so I don't see any need for a new console for the next two years tbh.
I see Wii2 and Xbox720 releasing fall 2012. I really hope I'm right. Even though Fall 2011 would be even better, but not likely. And if Playstation doesn't release their next console alongside Nintendo and Xbox and waits another year, like 2013, I think they will struggle to catch up like this gen. If anything I'm hoping the next Playstation releases like 2014 .... that way the differences will probably be huge in games being released. Not like this gen ... say what you want, but PS3 and 360 games are too similar in quality this gen.
I`m sick of multi-platform games from greedy developers. I want unique games like all generations before this one had.
Expect more of the same... Mario, Metroid, etc repeat. Just like every other Nintendo system.
In other words, more game of the year contesters for real gamers.
Nintendo should just create and license some sort of HD upscaler for the Wii. It seems like that is the majority of complaints from people--just to smooth out the jaggies. It doesnt bother me much..but there is definitely room for improvement on the Wii--which is nice as well..because when the next ninty console comes out it will really stand out compared to the Wii.
