With the announcement of Wii U on Nintendo's shoulders, Miyamoto has stated why the company took so long to start embracing the HD market and to make the Wii U.
And it will for 3D as well... hope Wii U is prepared for that!!!
nintendo=full of crap and are always late to the ball game...they knew HD would take charge but instead took the cheap route.
I actually agree with you. Nintendo had the in-vision of making money, that is all they think of. Later in the age HD is cheaper due to 3D being rolled out.
why do people always say nintendo is late to the ballgame technically speaking they are always first with (insert new thing here) it was only until the wii that they ditched bothering with graphics
Besides Nintendo couldn't go with a high powered console like the PS3 simply because it didn't have that many resources or money to waste during the abysmal GCN days. They had to make profit. Desperate times call for desperate measures, anyone?
Have to go with Dark charizard for today, I don´t want nintendo gone just yet as much as I want them to fail this gen and get some kicks into their loonies heads.
like Dark said the abysmal gamecube and imo also the n64 did so bad nintendo was basically forced to go low cost. maybe it was good thing as they've obviously sold the most consoles out the three this gen. but still if nintendo didnt fail so hard the previous gens, I bet they woulda tried to go toe to toe power wise with sony and microsoft
The fact the economy was pretty bad back then anything could have happened. Their basis came after research regarding JAPAN only. They weren't looking at the rest of the world.
That was actually a smart move for Nintendo and now they have the funds to make a better console. This is the only generation where Nintendo released a lower powered console. I think if they made the Wii as powerful as the 360 and PS3 it might have been also expensive and might have sunk the company. I can also say that out of all the console manufacturers they make consoles that are the most durable. Heck my NES is still alive and kicking and our Wii has never had a problem. I'm more of a PS3 gamer but Nintendo still holds a special place in my heart for introducing me to Japanese styled games.
@ NYC_Gamer Finally,a logical comment on N4G...the world is saved !
. ... and the movie Green lantern is leading the charge...lol. Nintendo 3Ds at the moment is a flop and when the PS Vita launches, it will be the main true gaming handheld. Cell phones and ipods will command the rest of the market behind the unstoppable app phenomena. Sony wants 3D, like they wanted Blu-ray...the industry is moving on being pushed forward by DD. 3D movies are a scam. The technology is fine if being cross eyed and/or having a lazy eye is your ultimate goal...o_O. It's an corporate agenda to raise the price of EVERYTHING related to entertainment and in the case of Tv's, wearing glasses at the same time...lol
The demand for use/support of more than one wiiU tablet is increasing rapidly
Ha ha that's a good one thumbs up for you. By the way Nintendo, you ever plan on letting us watch an actual movie on your console. FAIL!
It sure did Nintendo, it sure did
I hope Nintendo uses the style of that Wii U Zelda tech demo for the actual game. As much as I love Wind Waker, I'd rather they hold back on taking that route on Wii U.
Tingle tuner!!! TINGLE TUNER!!!! /rage
Yeah, it increased rapidly before the Wii was released. When the Wii was released, HD was a basic function of all other consoles.
I agree. Nintendo's and it's followers attitudes are starting to get on my nerves. We all have spent years talking about graphics and power and listening to them telling us it doesn't matter. Now everyday I have to listen to this tripe as everyone runs their mouth off about features we have been enjoying for years like HD graphics, huge disc space,fast processors and 1080p capability that will most likely be dwarfed by the other systems next upgrade to a next gen console. I understand being stoked about a new console but please just ease off.What is this pretense as if they just woke up from a five year nap and discovered the demand for HD was high?
"What is this pretense as if they just woke up from a five year nap and discovered the demand for HD was high? " well what you can say? they lived in mushroom land XD
or maybe the demand for HD wasnt as high FIVE years ago. Maybe sony was aiming at a market that wasnt completely there FIVE years ago.
@Mini Mario Maybe it's a good thing that they wanted a console that would remain relevant for more than five years. Maybe the fact that Nintendo is entering the same console generation twice indicates that they lacked the foresight that the competition had. Maybe any blunder that Nintendo makes can be spun to look like a smart move.
"Maybe it's a good thing that they wanted a console that would remain relevant for more than five years." Why?? > History shows us consoles are replaced within 5 years (or a newer console gets released). Why would you want the same tech for ten years?? I have a ps3 and i can say that most games only play 720p anyway! I mean the way you guys carry on like it's 1080p native for every release. "Maybe the fact that Nintendo is entering the same console generation twice indicates that they lacked the foresight that the competition had." Lacked the foresight?? lol, where the wii has 80-90 million sold where the rest have about 50?? Yeh the competition really didnt see that coming ! "Maybe any blunder that Nintendo makes can be spun to look like a smart move." Im not naive like you seem to be. Maybe you feel that your chosen fanboy Associated brand is has never made a single mistake but im to believe they have all made mistakes this gen, big ones. I would never buy wii fit for example, but hey there are many great games for me to play and many that people like you miss out on. Tatsunoko vs capcom for example. As for motion control i use it where it works. It works in mario galaxy, sports games (tennis ftw), sword games. But fighting/racing games i use the classic control set up or gamecube..see most games have multiple options (4 usually) for control choice. Except in DK returns which was blasphemy Plus i love the new controller for the wii-u i think it's a great idea, so sorry i couldn't really see where the blunder was>> ?
almost every new tv is and HD tv today
"Now that Nintendo has embarked into the HD industry, expect some swings that will blow the consumers minds." Like technology that's existed as part of other consoles for 5+ years now? ;) You really blow my mind with this fabulous new HD feature Nintendo!
