Like it or not, the next Nintendo system is going to carry the Wii moniker. Nick DiMola of PixlBit explains why.
I see what you're sayin, but it's definitely not gonna be called Wii HD. Why? Because Nintendo isn't going to make HD, AKA, graphics, the Wii 2's selling point. Nintendo isn't big on flaunting amazing graphics anymore, and there's already 2 HD consoles out on the market. Bragging about HD would just seem silly.
I agree totally. The main selling point will be this new controller I suspect.
Wii is the spiritual successor to NES, so I'd say name the next system SUPER WII with the launch title SUPER WII SPORTS! :P I mean they can't have SUPER MARIO WII.. cuz Mario's already SUPER ;)
I disagree with you. Nintendo will be stupid to pass up on HD graphics. They got away with it last gen because people were still used to SD and HD was new but now it not acceptable. They have to go HD because if it doesn't. It gonna fail.
Er, I think you completely missed what I was saying. I was simply saying that it won't be called Wii HD. I didn't say that the system WONT HAVE HD, I just said that they won't make HD it's selling point....
I shall name it the Nintendo Viewcon/Vuu For the ability to view the game on the controller screen.
Just watch how everyone falls for the same trap AGAIN!
Probably better to fall for all generic fps out there without depth. End
Its so easy the new name will be SUPER WII
Super Wii just sounds wrong for so many reasons. ; )
Wii HD Weed Not happening
iiW pronounced: Eew
Whatever they name it, I just hope that this time they sale a powerhouse system and not just another gimmick. They did the gimmick successfully in Wii, they grabbed the casual market's attention for a bit, and they put some much needed cash back in the Nintendo vaults. Now they need to turn their attention back towards the actual gamers. They need to make a grab at the people who play PS3 & 360, because at the moment a number of gamers do not take Nintendo seriously. If Nintendo can release a system that captures back the core gaming audience and also looks good to the parents/casuals they will have truly accomplished something. I am not sure if that is even possible to tell the truth, but I would love to see Nintendo slick on their warpaint and go to battle against Sony & MS. Gamers do not need, nor do they want an upgraded Wii with a fancy controller, what we need is a true Revolution. So maybe they should Resurrect that name from their trash bin, and actually show the core gaming audience that Nintendo is ready to go to battle to win back our hearts.
How about Wii Wii
call it Nintendo HD
JUST PLEASE NINTENDO DON'T CALL IT A WII HD OR ANYTHING WITH A WII. Should of name it REVOLUTION.
