andriasang.com: It looks like Nintendo CEO Satoru Iwata has managed to make a mention, in some capacity, about Nintendo's next generation console to follow Wii.
I'm more interested in this promised promotion of Dragon Quest IX in the west. I want to know how they're going to go about it. I think there's plenty of other games that they could do with helping too.
If it has the name "wii 2" or "wii hd", they will rule ingest every corner of the earth guess how many users will want to update their console when a next wii comes out, sony and M$ will get screwed even if the wii2 is less powerful than the ps3. though I wish nintendo gets back to the hardcore gamers.
The Wii fans wont be happy about upgrading ,because ,Wii Sisies, "dont care bout graphics!!!" "Why should wii have to upgrade???" I dont care about graphics its fun thats all that matters, IF it's so fun then go trade your Wii for a SNES or game cube!!! Ill gladly take it off your hands and sell it for a PS3!!LMAO Fools!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you Nintendo for De-evolution of the gaming industry!!!! Makes me mad they talk about a new console yet the graphics are Sh!t, whats the point of upgrading, the Game cube could of done most all the crap the Wii cheap games could do!!!same with Xbox 1... what a joke !!!!
I wonder what happened to Natal =/
"IF it's so fun then go trade your Wii for a SNES or game cube!!!" 1. wii plays gamecube moron, quit trolling the section 2. we own SNES or have played all SNES games we wanted 3. wii plays the best snes games 4. emulators "the Game cube could of done most all the crap the Wii cheap games could do!!!same with Xbox 1..." 1. wii is 2x speed of gamecube 2. wii is faster than xbox unless you're some moron who looks at mhz only cause you don't know about comp sci 3. gamecube has the 6th gen poly count record in Star Wars: Rogue Squadron at 20 mil no slowdown and so even GC beats xbox
Xgamerzus, Going by your logic they shouldn't even make a new console, just have the Wii forever, and I hope we could all agree that would practically be the end of Nintendo and I hope we are all smart enough to know thats not going to happen. Now Next gen Nintendo trying to go for the casual again I agree would be a pretty big mistake, they aren't going to go buy a new system, they're happy with the Wii. BUT if the call it Wii(2 or HD or whatever) but have an upgraded online experience, HD graphics, Maybe Blueray? Backwards compatable? can use old remotes and/or new remotes specific to the new system also a standard controller, that would not only appeal to the hardcore but some of the old casual Wii owners too. that would be the smartest way to go, it would be better than making a completely new system. also your like having an anti wii/nintendo fanboy spaz attack, you need to take some fanboy pills
bring Nintendo up to speed, you know your ideas work, so make that new system happen captain. STOP wasting time making 100 iterations of the DS, the games are good enough. Yes Dragon Quest IX will be welcomed.
New wii now with even more soccer mom appeal and shovelware.
So thats what you do with your life? =D?
Haha Sidar, true that! +Bubble
if nintendo manage to put out a new console mid gen. it should be rather easy achiving 1080p @60fps game play with all the latest titles. with the kind of gpus out now. even the using the term obselete for the gpu on ps3 or 360 is an understatement. lol even if nintendo on purpose tried to make a weak system it would still outperform xbox 360 or ps3 multiple times. now might be a chance for nintendo to launch a new console and win back all the thirdparty support. would be funny to see all new games made with wii hd as the best console version. pc being the best ofcourse. @ the disagrees.. i know its hard accepting a wii to be the most powerful console, a little research will show you the kind of gpus available out now for nintendo to select from. A little hint even a G80 which appeared on the pc about 3years ago outperforms the ps3 or the 360 by 200%. now imagine if nintendo were to use something a little more recent.
Who cares honestly? Go ahead and make it OH great wizard of all the gaming world.
if this does go through anyone wanting to game at true 1080 on a console will care.
You all make the Wii sound injured because it doesn't have games like Uncharted 2 or Mass Effect, the possibilities would be great. I say who cares cause Nintendo will have a new plan no doubt. The part with "Win back all 3rd party games" is the most idiotic stuff people say when they think that all those games belong on 1 system. I luv all my systems equally why? cause I actually know when it's time to leave loserville AKA N4G, and be what over 90% of you aren't, Gamers.
@gamingsucksnow if you are gonna quote me atleast learn to copy and paste properly. I never said "win back all 3rd party games" i said "win back all the third party support" its a fact nintendo has lost support from all third parties ever since wii was released primarily due to its inability to play those games. hopefully if a wii hd does come out third party titles will see a return to it.
How is having lost ALL support for the WII a fact w/ games like Muramasa, No More Heroes, Fragile, Tatsunoko vs Capcom, Silent Hill Origins, Arc Rise Fantasia, Dragon Quest IX, and many more a FACT. I wanna see Nintendo Do way better than sales talk no doubt, but come on your comment, like most wreaked of bitterness for no reason. Copy and paste my foot, your comment looked snarky and I know what you typed. Support is support if you have others to fall back on.
Let's hope so BTW they COULD use 5 yo hardware again, bringing Wii 2 again far behind PS3 and 360, so let's see
10x the price on a pc? thats an ignorant comment. costs about 500-600usd to get a gaming pc these days.
What he was saying was the hardware in the Wii at launch was OLD PC hardware that at the time you'd pick up for $30...while an overstatement it isn't THAT far from the truth. LTR.
So is regis guy fired?
I'm curious if they will be moving onto NVidia since Nvi has the contract( nothing official yet) for the new Nintendo handheld. New nintendo console with custom nvidia gpu O_o that would be interesting, but the online infrastructure will be the real issue ( friendcode?!?), Free online and voice chat ( already avail) updated web browser ( latest opera with flashplayer) some sort of hard drive for PATCHES!!! and keep the idea of the virtual game systems and make possible for ppl to freely re-download the games they bought on the wii. HD ( they might go with some sort of custom medium to stop piracy) I think that covers what they need for their next gen system. the controller is a IDK at the moment.
@gamingsucksnow read again "primarily due to its inability to play those games." we arent seeing any graphics intensive game on the wii.. which is why the hardcore crowd just isnt present on it. just afew games wii has missed out on: Assissins creed border lands dragon age batman arkum a proper version of COD grid left 4 dead mirrors edge operation flashpoint dragon rising prince of persia just to name afew.. many more games announced which wont make it to the wii.. most these are games the hardcore crowd looks for.. i am sure nintendo would want these on their platform.
What is the big deal with HD in VIDEOGAMES???? I mean, it's like a bunch of sports fans (not that I'm bashing sports fans, but they seem to be the first ones to hype HD) became "gamers" and said to game/console makers "WE WANT HD ON GAMES!". But I guess that's only just my opinion..... But I'd thought I'd just get that out before I go to bed. -_-"
I agree with you. I love eye candy, too, but it's not any kind of deal breaker. I've read so many comments like "I'd love to play Zelda, but I'm waiting on it to go HD." Why? Will the graphics make that much of a difference? I can't say they will for me. I play Zelda to PLAY it. If the art style is there, a game can almost be timeless. Retro's Prime games aren't in HD and don't push as many polys as lots of games we see released now, but while going back to play the Trilogy, they still looked really good to my eyes. I imagine I'll feel the same about Bioshock in 5 or 6 years; it's out on the HD consoles, of course, but because its art style is so awesome, I can't imagine it aging too badly. Already feel that way about Okami. Plus, Nintendo already tried the "keepin' up with the graphical Jones'" approach last gen. It failed them. I doubt they're going to try to out-Sony or out-Microsoft those companies.
Yeah, that's just your ignorant opinion. *looks @ comment history* *sees pathetic lists of games* *laughs @ you*
I know, Man. XD @Isaac: "Ignorant"? What knowledge am I lacking? The fact the HD is needed in gaming? HD isn't enough to make a game good, if you don't believe me. 1) Go to a game store. 2) (Not to offend anyone who like those games) Buy Sonic 2006 or Haze. 3) Beat these games and come back to me with your opnion on the two (Or just one) game(s).. Now if that isn't what you ment by "ignorant", then tell me what ment by it.. BTW: I'm not bashing ANY HD consoles, so there is not need to get so worked up over this. --------------- About my list --------------- Oh do tell me what is so funny about a list of games that fanboys are technically asking for? @edit: LOL @ the disagree..... I said I wasn't bashing any consoles, what more do you want? Blood? [email protected]
i think hd is way over hypes. people argue about a game that is hd on there full hd console but the number of full hd native resolution game is close to none. Hd gaming is b/s what does really matter in gfx is the art style not the resolution or the dynamic bloom @zoid: yes i want some blood
Ture that. HD doesn't stop games from sucking. So what's the big deal?
New HD console or not. I am always open to new Nintendo consoles. If it has the rumored blueray support and 1080p outputs at a fair price then all the better. Hell, they might even finally get online right. I like my wii but if nintendo does release an Wiihd/2 by then end of 2010 then that means that I can get that and comfortably start enjoying the joys of homebrew on my old wii.
i hope its region free. some of my wii games are from other regions, and they are the ones i play the most. TvC and some anime games. right now, i'm playing super robot wars neo, which we all know isn't coming to America. granted i'm also counting on backwards compatibility too[Nintendo's next generation console] although i'm glad that nintendo will get a graphics boost. i'm all for eye candy, but that shouldn't be the only thing people look for. luckily i have a PC so i can play most of the stuff on the ps360's so i'm not hurting too much, and i'm surprised i can run SF4 on my PC too, just fine. :)
HD is not needed in gaming BUT gaming must be able to display HD as the standard for displays are moving more and more into the HD resolution. You will not find any more tube TVs and if you do that company is just trying to liquidate their inventory. I have been playing games at U-HD for a long time, and it's nice to have the ability to play games on a large screen that isn't a PC in HD. I will say that when my wii is on a large scale screen you can't see the words really if you're reading something but on a smaller tube ( 27") I can read it but it's not really clear(some of you know what I mean). After a few games your eye adjust, going back to higher rez your your eye re-adjust (big deal). =/ Bottom line, HD will become standard if it isn't already in your area. Nintendo only goes with what the standard is and the next gen system from them will obviously be HD. Now whats been bothering me is "IF" they say 720P is good enough for cost purposes, then all I can say is "DOH!" lol
Nintendo the one that said that "graphics" dont matter to most game players? (Meaning casual market to them) Oh well.
Look, Nintendo did what they did to survive. If you can't see that your blind and you probably paid way too much for a PS3. Which business decision was the smartest, Nintendo's or Sony's? Now that theyre rolling in it they will simply continue to make the next smart investment decision. Iwata knows what he is doing. It will be a combination of price competitiveness and technology, and both of these are much more favorable today than they were 3 years ago. Sure, they will continue to attract new audiences, they have to keep that percentage of the market secure within the Nintendo brand, but if you can't see the difference between WS and WSR (more game, less simplification) then your not paying attention.
If sales figures are correct, and the PS3 is now beating Wii in japan, there is every chance that Nintendo will be focussed on defeating Sony asap. HD Wii has a very good chance of achieving this.
