Nintendo to reconsider better graphics after high-def "takes off"

Miyamoto: "We had to compromise on graphics and give up on a powerful chip. Many of our employees initially wanted high-definition graphics. But they agreed with us that graphics wouldn't matter if the games weren't fun to play ... As new chip technology becomes available, we'll consider less power-hungry varieties that don't cost too much. And once high-definition TVs take off, we'll consider the merits of better graphics and more power."

The story is too old to be commented.

Stupid comment with no merit on what Nintendo is going to do in the near future.

"once high-definition TVs take off" oh ...that means "SUPER Wii" in 2 years....maybe ? =P

I'm glad that Nintendo has decided to take gaming in a different direction. Not that there's anything wrong with the direction headed by Microsoft and Sony, but variety is good. I'd sooner have Wii as a 2nd console than PS3 for the simple reason that it'll offer something different.

which means that when the PS5 and the XBox 4 comes out Nintendo's graphics will be like the current Gens.

If they offered a vga cable I would be much more likely to buy a wii. The stability and sharpness of a computer monitor blows away my 18 year old standard definition tv.
