Benelux Brand Manager of Ubisoft Benelux and Joey Smits, SR Product & PR Manager of THQ Benelux might be hinting at Nintendo's rumored platform announcement at GDC.
I don't know about all of this, really. A new handheld and even console don't make much sense for Nintendo, especially based on the circumstances/what's been said lately.
I agree. Why is this posted? Look at the title. They "might" be "hinting" at a "rumored" system. Three speculative qualifiers!
they shouldn't even announce a new system yet its too early they are still making millions and millions off the ds and wii so there is no need also WHY WOULD NINTENDO ANNOUNCE SOMETHING BIG LIKE THIS AT GDC of all places
Ubisoft and THQ, lol they would be the last developers to find out. Im sure Ubisoft cant wait to release Imagine Babez on the WiiHD lol seriously, its not coming and it shouldn't.
They're not. Ubisoft's announcement is going to be Red Steel 2 multiplatform and the guy's just pulling their leg. THQ is probably talking mostly shovelware with perhaps one other good title, hence reluctance to talk.
If people at Ubi or THQ leaked news of a new Nintendo home console, Miyamoto and Iwata would eat their souls.
You've got a point.
I bet Nintendo has a wicked non-disclosure agreement. They wrote it on the skin of Bonk and Sonic.
Open your mouth and your dead.
WiiHD: Fall 2010 xbox 720: Fall 2011
Nintendo's claiming they're going "beyond" HD. I'm interested to see what the hell that means. If they do go HD and beyond, I'm hoping it'll be Samus that ushers it in. She's earned it.
I could only imagine a next gen Nintendo strictly for the hardcore gamer and a wii Hd for the casual.
WiiHD will disrupt the HD market, because more genres will be able to find a home on HD markets. HD market is currently ruled by Shooters(FPS/TPS), WRPGs, Sports and Fighting games(to a degree). WiiHD is going to expand that and it is needed. I am a little tired of those genres on PS3 really, and looking forward to the announcement.
I'm still convinced that we won't see Nintendo rerelease the Wii just to be HD. That would be ridiculous. I could see another console within two years as a possibility, but it won't be a Wii.
All of the consoles have been out around 4 years. Traditionally console cycles are every 5 years, so that means new consoles are on the horizon believe it or not. Only Sony has the option of sticking around the longest because of PS3 ability to read bigger BD-ROMS (100GB), while MS and Nintendo are going to need to upgrade. *And the fact they need profit* This gen people adopted consoles late because they were hella expensive. Early adopters like me and others are waiting for the next gen.
I said that it was fully possible that we'd be getting a new Nintendo console within two years. I haven't been asleep the past couple years, and I've been playing games long enough to know average life cycle, danke. My point was, it's highly unlikely that it'll be WiiHD.
I have insider info. It's a new hand held system. We're working on a top secret project for it. That's all I can say.
Well that's unfortunate. Wii owners aren't eagerly anticipating a new hand held. Or at least this owner isn't. Hope that ain't it. On a side note: Nintendo needs to find more reliable people to keep their secrets.
Or someone who can scrub his comments of identifying info before breaking NDA. Unless you're joking I'd delete this account immediately. I'm not kidding. Every time you say something else it just gets closer to fully identifying you. I already know where you say you work. Ipad jitters, nintendo doesn't want disrupted I guess.
Seriously, listen to bob. If you leak info, Reggie will kill you with a Trident. I've seen him do it.
The last thing you'll ever hear is: "My name is Reggie. I'm about kickin' ass, I'm about takin' names, and we're about makin' games."
Oobob seems to have some pretty good advice to live by and apparently your job address too. ( that was quick ) If you value your job, and or life, I'd listen up. Starting now.
Well that makes the most sense seeing how the DS is 5 years old and practically all Nintendo consoles usually last around 5 years until a new one is introduced. So I doubt its a new console the Wii is just 4 years old.
i dunno if its a new hand held if that was the case why would they be making the next new big pokemon game on the ds?
I''l start caring when it comes directly from Ninty. Besides, it's too soon in my opinion . May be a little off subject but----- Ubi needs to be banned from making titles for Nintendo platforms, or at least fire the teams behind the imagine series and such. http://en.wikipedia.org/wik... Can you say : "No self control"?
They seem to be selling enough to have a reason to make more. -_-
whatever new thing they release is day one buy for me
I hope Nintendo is working on something special. I think they are still selling good enough to hold out till 2012 like Microsoft and Sony. Even if sales start to really decline. They have already made a lot of money since day 1. They could probably just cut the price and hold off till 2012
I just don't see why if theyre going to update the DS, and MS and Sony update their consoles, why not the Wii? Whether its an attachment, that bumps output to 576P, or a new Wii (thats slightly bigger without excessive space for Backwards Com.) thats the same price as current model, why wouldn't they do it?
