Nintendo is very close to make a deal with Japanese manufacturer Sharp. The deal includes free-form and shape-shifting LCD screens.
Hmmmm...maybe I should hold off then on a WiiU. No doubt this wont see the light of day until maybe 4 or 5 years from now ...maybe 3 but Nintendo is always good for BC and more than likely their new console will have BC with WiiU games.
Good one Nintendo! Thats why I keep coming back to you!
Gotta give Nintendo props for trying something creative each gen. I like their confidence, but I feel that they should try to reel in more people with their next console. This probably won't....
Was hoping they'd go the VR route.
Recently theyve been emphasising the local and online multiplayer/social side and they've always gone for a family/living room friendly image. Nintendo aren't likely to embrace VR, it's very uniquely insular, the player is in their own little world. I'd love to see it too, as im a huge VR nut now, but I doubt it'll happen.
Gotta admit, for what Ninty lacks in one area it makes up for in another, to some degree, with novel gimmicks. Nintendo is a solid second-system across all gens.
Quality of Life products people..... everyone assumes consoles, which it most likely wont be. QOL makes a lot more sense !!
Many QOL products would be able to take advantage of this type of screen technology
Maybe its for their new handheld if their next console isn't a hybrid machine. Or its for their health product quality of life as I remember. Too many possibilities yet people like to jump into conclusions without hesitation.
I can't wait to bend my Nintendo screen.....getting tired of those squeezy little hand machines to make my forearms bulge. Throw in a next gen Wii U2 Fit Board and I will do it on one leg.
