Wii 2 Likely To Be Revealed This Year (At E3?)

The Wii has been a powerhouse for Nintendo, kicking them back into living rooms all over the world. Prior to the Wii, Nintendo put out a couple of miss-hits in the Gamecube and Nintendo 64. Both consoles utilised a different medium than that of their competitors (N64 opting for a Cartridge over CD, and the Gamecube opting for Mini-DVD over full-size DVD).

While these measures were put in place to circumvent piracy, which they did to great effect, Nintendo still suffered at the register – with less of an adoption rate than their main competitors in Sony.

HDWii.org's heard a lot of rumours as to when the Next Generation of consoles will begin. For Nintendo, it is painstakingly obvious that it will be sooner, rather than later. HDWii.org are about to make a bold video game prediction here (looking at you Michael Pachter), so if this does not come to fruition feel free to send HDWii.org hate-mail. HDWii.org believe the Wii 2 will be announced and most probably revealed this year, possibly at E3.

Not sure what they can pull off....

MacGamer2722d ago

I'm thinking it won't be as revolutionary as the Wii was

@MacGamer

The Wii was not revolutionary....analogue only cables...480p...it was basically 2 just 2 gamecubes with motion control.

I traded mine after it sat unused for most of 12 months...

I have owned all nintendo's consoles and handhelds. Nintendo dropped the ball quality wise.

Not all revolutions in gaming are technological.

@koehler83

The Wii had the weakest game lineup of all time for Nintendo....that cancels out software innovation....what's left after that, marketing innovation? I suppose they did trick millions into buying a platform with no decent games, they get points for that I guess.

Revolutionary means something that comes out that get's everyone's attention and inspires others!

If i'm correct, it got lots of attention, the sales prove it! It has inspired others, which is why MS and Sony came out with their own forms of motion controls, even though they both downplayed motion controls at the beginning of this gen.

Games aren't just about power, they are about entertainment, or in other words... FUN! I have seen some beautiful games this gen, but a lot of them just weren't much fun! We told ourselves they were because we liked the graphics.

I'm an older gamer, so I remember when you could put in Super Mario at any time and have fun with it, no matter how many times you beat it! Most of the sh*t that we call good games get traded as soon as something that looks better comes along. Why don't we keep them if they were so good? If we do keep them, why don't we play them as much as the older games? Why do most people keep their games because they won't get much for them?

The technology wasn't revolutionary, but the impact on the gaming industry was. As a result of the popularity of the Wii amongs the casual and traditionally non-gamers(senior citizens, moms, etc.), Sony and MS followed up with their own version of a motion gaming device.

I like it how when you speak of revolutions all you can talk about is graphical capabilities. That is a shallow way of looking at innovation.

Nintendo changed the gaming market and the way we control games. Sony ushered in Blu-Ray and Microsoft really nailed the online capabilities of consoles.

Each of them has contributed in their own way to the latest generation of consoles but, in my opinion, I think Nintendo had the greatest impact this generation.

my guess would be just another controller based game platform. with wii backwards compatability, HD etc

AndrewRyan2721d ago

I agree. Nintendo always manage to change things up drastically. Who saw the gamecube coming? Anyone? Like seriously?

But I think they will remain semi-casual to cater to the audience they have created.

koehler832721d ago

I'd bet my ass that it will be something camera based.

And it will be HD, more online compatible etc. All the basics we expect from 21st century technology.

JsonHenry2721d ago

My bet will be a 3D capable, HD, and controller+ "kinect" like camera machine. Still not top notch visuals though.

koehler832721d ago

They'd be hard pressed to market that. You just described the PS3.

You caught my insinuation perfectly! Bubble for you mate!
