Is it time to send the Wii into retirement?

Hit-Reset's Xandaca makes a case for the Wii's successor to see light in 2011 (Nintendo, Wii)

I think the Wii can last a good two years (2011 and 2012) before Nintendo needs to release their next home console. To do this, some truly unique and creative games will need to be released... Like Skyward Sword, The Last Story, and Earthseeker. Sadly, only one of those three (Zelda) will likely make it out of Japan.

I think it's time for Nintendo to actually release their lineup for this year and some preliminary release dates, but I'm a realist, so I know that's not happening until after the 3DS's release.

The Wii will outlast the 360.
Alpha_Gamer  +   1479d ago
I really doubt that. I think the Wii is going to be the first fade away, with PS3 sticking around the longest and 360 somewhere in the middle. Just my take.
Seferoth75  +   1479d ago
Really cause all those launch 360s are already dead from RROD.

Doom, doom and more doom. It will never end everyone is still against the wii.
Wenis  +   1480d ago
That's typically how it is with popular things.
GoldPS3  +   1480d ago
Yeah it needs to retire and so does some Nintendo games like Pokemon and Mario shovel ware games. When was the last time Nintendo made a new IP?
Seferoth75  +   1479d ago
Wii Sports. idiots like you are so funny. Too inbred to see what already exists. Likie running around a forest screaming where are the trees. A new IP comes with every Wii sold..

Oh wait typical. Whenever a moron is running their mouth and completely wrong you can count on it being a Sony fanboy.

Shouldnt you be out working 3 jobs to pay for the next POS PS console? Or removing your head from Kens back side?
Desert Turtle  +   1479d ago
I know you're a Nintendo fanboy, and I am too, but you take it too far 99% of the time, man. All your posts start off with "Idiot get a clue" or some variation of that.

Why can't people own whatever console they want without having to be trolled by some loser on N4G?

It's not a bad example its a new IP and one of the most popular this gen by far. Sure there are better games out but she asked for a new IP from Nintendo. That is the most obvious example a person could think of, the one that sold 80 million
@Desert, ACtually i am more of a PC fanboy but you will notice any time I do post it is on the most ignorant comments. I am not here to be anyones friend and the one thing in life that pisses me off is ignorance. There is just no excuse for some of the moronic posts coming from Sony fanboys these days

the ps3, 360 and wii are all in need of a serious reboot

as in

wii2, ps4 and xboxwhatever

the wii is basically a ps2 with motion control, the xbox360 is a xbox1.5 with a minority report camera
and the ps3 is like a crappy gaming laptop that only supports 720p or less and comes with a glowing dildo

they are all embarrasing themselves

at the least the wii came out of the gate lame as hell and did not try to hide it, those early commercials....lol

now you see sony and ms making the same lame commericials

when they were supposed to be "hardcore"

please, end this gen soon, it's gotten so terribly gimicky

kinect and move/////>>>>barf! !!

Worst trolling I have ever seen. Let me help you out with your bubbles.
Kos-Mos  +   1479d ago
Well, since you`re offended in an odd sort of way I can tell you that it is quite true what therapist says, but some people eat everything that`s new, not fresh.
Instead of using the t word which you`re hiding behind, try discussing with him or me.
Orionsangel  +   1479d ago
Haha, I'm sorry but the Xbox360 is not the Xbox 1.5. Gears of War could have never been made on the Xbox.
Orionsangel  +   1479d ago
The Wii has basically become the DS at this point. Everyone has hacked it and playing free games. Come on Nintendo, make some real modern hacker protection. You old farts!

If Nintendo was smarter or even more greedier than they are now. They'd make the next gen Nintendo console as powerful as possible. Yeah I know, powerful graphics isn't Nintendo's motto, good games over power, but why not have the best of both worlds Nintendo? Have your Wii powered style games, but also be able to run Crysis 2, Bulletstorm, Battlefield 3. Look at what Wii owners miss out on, heck look at the extra money Nintendo could be making, Nintendo has to see the logic in that.

Basically this.

?!? @Orionsaint
protection? :) Microsoft's xbox360 was hacked with software in about 2 months, Wii had to be chipped and I think it was in a longer time... about Nintendo's console power, maybe, but for me Wii's graphics are OK, they don't bother me.. Wii has to live :) No need 4 retirement..
