If nothing else, these rumors are helping nintendo...

I'd nearly forgot about them until these started popping up...

A HiFi3671d ago

Very true. I'd completely forgot about Metroid until the article mentioned it! Too much dust gathering around Wii consoles everywhere.

chasuk083671d ago

I hope its some decent games

Nintendo Rep3671d ago (Edited 3671d ago )

Dust is covering people's Wii's on the Internet that is, people use their Wii's more regularly than what you might think. Just because they don't post on N4G doesn't mean they don't play their systems.

I expect them to refresh their console with everyone else, but it seems so much smarter to simply update the hardware of the current Wii -- pack in controllers with the WiiMotion Plus built in, add a hard drive, perhaps some more graphical power. Consumers aren't interested in the new thing, they just want a Wii, so give them a Wii.

Yeah, they need to meet demand. I still have not yet seen a wii on a store shelf. Even if they are artificially keeping supply down I don't get why they wouldn't want to sell as many as possible...

aubradley3671d ago

Seems like Nintendo could just ride the Wii wave for 10 more years. They could be the only true "ten year lifecycle" console because it's going to take that long for them to catch up with demand. No reason for them to rush out a new console.

would anyone be excited about nintenedo anymore?

TheColbertinator3671d ago (Edited 3671d ago )

Er hem

Imallvol73671d ago

you can say what you want . . . that was a legitimate statement.

BrotherNick3671d ago

Lol, it's not like I'm excited about ps3 and 360 games. :P

razorbladelight3671d ago

no matter how lackluster Nintendo has gotten, the world over still knows the name even beating out Mickey Mouse as the most iconic character ever, Mario is known moreso than you think.
So to answer your question, yes, the world still cares about Nintendo, whether the "hardcore" gamer whines on and on about their specs and hard drive space, Nintendo keeps raking in the gold? If know one knew or cared about them anymore, how the hell would they be making all this dang profit then.

Nintendo Rep3671d ago

Suck me and Nintendo's d1ck please. We deserve it.

steveg25643671d ago

Of course it's a legitimate statement, but if you don't support it with anything it becomes a meaningless statement. Maybe if you support your questions or statements you'll be taken more seriously. Just a thought.

Hopefully Nintendo does not spill the beans about their plans.Otherwise people will see TGS and Nintendo will have nothing new to show

Smacktard3671d ago

Microsoft and Sony both are delivering games to care about in the here and now. I'm in no need of ideas to put on a wishlist for next xmas. The thought of waiting that long for something has never inspired a feeling even close to joy in me.

qface643671d ago

seriously what are you talking about how long did it take for sonys and microsofts games to come out when they announced them? you make it sound like a game comes out the next day after they announce it

TheColbertinator3671d ago

@D*ck Jones

How is Alan Wake? Oh thats right...2009 even though it was announced 2005.How about Gran Turismo 5?...thats right 2010.
