Nintendo is ruling the gaming world, with huge sales for the Wii and the DS. But is this a good as it gets for Ninty? And will it ever enjoy such success again?
The come stronger in hardware department the next gen...or they are done...people will just want more in the hardware the next time around. They will have to come strong with a good online service to... They need a Wii 3 that is at least 720p with a HDMI connection and dolby digital sound....and graphics on par with the second gen xbox (Xbox 360)... It is amazing how much old tech is in all the nintendo products...the DS has been using processors that were outdate years ago...
It is amazing. I think this means that people want to have more intuitive ways of playing games than having the games look real. That and price is what's making it sell well. I wonder when it'll be too much though, like people may be turned off by having to put on some motion capture suit or something.
" people will just want more in the hardware the next time around. They will have to come strong with a good online service to... " This is the mindset of the "typical" GAMER. more than half of the audience doesn't even realizes how well a online mode could be. " the DS has been using processors that were outdate years ago..." But its all the hardware needs, it works so what is the problem? You think they make a new Chip with every product they make? Lots of hardware in the world uses "outdated" tech simply because it's enough. Have you seen the line up for TGS? I'm talking about the DS games. 70+ Games... Now with that outdates hardware developers seem to love it. DS is doing lots more than the GBA, so the hardware is advancing. It's not a leap in hardware like the PS3, but its not like they aren't making the hardware more efficient.
...is why the Wii is cleaning up at the moment. The next gens price will drop and they are likely to develop their own version of the wii-mote/chucks. But many Wii owners will likely also buy the next-gen consoles when they are cheap enough. The question is whether they will buy both or just one...and if one, which one? And Nin will have built a fan based for the Wii 2 which will highly likely be a HD console with HDD - nothing revolutionary allowing it to sell cheaper than the competition. Clever Nintendo.
From interviews they didn't think that it would've been widely accepted as quick as it was...I guess many people really wanted to play games, but were scared of complexity.
