I highly doubt that will happen. With the rivalry between Sony and Microsoft, I would say it's smart of Nintendo to not directly compete with them.

I agree it was very smart of Nintendo not to compete with Sony/MS with an HD consoles they would have been in the exact same place as with the Gamecube...

im sure they're planning an HD version of the Wii though..

If Nintendo is no longer going to compete with horsepower in the console realm, I hope they will at least go all out on their next handheld. Hopefully something way more powerful than the PSP.

im sure Nintendo's next handheld will produce graphics we are now seeing on the PSP the DS is 64bit so im sure there next handheld will be 128bit...

Well there's two bug "duh"s. Of course the DS outsold the GBA, it's more interactive and there's better games for it. And the Wii outselling the N64? Another big, duh. Nintendo is focusing more on the casual crowd and there's a huge crowd of casuals out there to buy the console more than the N64 tried to appeal to the cores. Simple numbers show that. The N64 wasn't a bad system but it had mostly niche games save GoldenEye and a few others like Super Mario 64. But the awful controller and other bad software kept it from competing with Sony's original PlayStation. Arguably gaming's best console. People might disagree with me here, but the original PS redefined the industry into the 3rd dimension. As such there were so many amazing games it's hard to compare it to others. Just a personal thought.

Actually, both the PSP and DS run on 32-bit CPUs. How many bits the CPU is, is not an indication of power.

Advance was cool. But nothing ever beat the coolness that was a GB Color equipped with a GB Camera! I actually had three add-on cartridges for my GB color: the GB GameShark, GB Mega Memory, and the GB Camera. I tried connecting them all at once...it was weird.

On topic, go Nintendo...you dirty nintendogs you!
