Gameblog : "According to our information from developers, the 3DS should not be the only machine unveiled by Nintendo."
Doesnt sound like the title of a new console to me... Besides, unless Nintendo can revolutionize motion controls to a higher level thaen that of Natal, I think Nintendo will take a more standard approach to their next console... (BTW, No hate for the Wii, it's a fun console, I just think its been heavily overlooked this gen...)
i think Nintendo will wait until the Wii reaches the 100 million mark....the system is on its way to accomplishing that goal....the only reason they will wait is so that they can show that it can make a successful console....since people kept bringing up the market share of the gamecube and the n64 compared to its competitors in the previous generations of gaming consoles and i understand that the Wii is already a success, but Nintendo will keep pushing the console until they are fully satisfied with how far the system is able to go
Wii2 will NEVER sell like Wii. Wii was surprise even to Nintendo, no one expected it to get this big, no one. They got lucky once, will it work again? No motion controls are known quantity by now, old guys wont go "Wow Wii 2 i got to have that one". I know it might have different name but you got the point. Wont work again.
i was talking about the Wii.....not a Wii 2....if anything it wont be called Wii 2.....Nintendo will come out with some new name...and if they want to be relevant next gen....their new system will have to be HD....
it could be wiii or even more ironic...wwii
I think only reason it has been overlooked was the GPU. PS3 and X360 both have powerful and great GPUs that can do great graphics. Wii is stuck with something else. Doesn't quite do it. Sadly though if next Wii is coming with graphics only compared to X360's power then it will be Wii all over again. Maybe with a little more saturation from big tier developers with power like the X360, but when PS4 and X720 come around in 2012 focus will move back to the high powered machines.
-She would have a power similar to that of an Xbox 360 -It should not be called "Wii 2", but Wii HiFi (in any case the code name leaked) -It would be very oriented online -One of the main features is the community -It would be released in November 2011 Holy F If it as good as it sounds it might be day one All those things are what Nintendo Wii lacked with.
yeah now if it was released in 2006 i would cared but in 2011? lol no
-She would have a power similar to that of an Xbox 360 = FLOP -She would have a power similar to that of an Xbox PS3 = Win -It would be released in November 2011 = Huh!, this is just implying nintendo can't give more further than have been given, is that so, I pass, but again Console are for fun and not for graphics so, it should do well. So expecting for a super smash brother true next gen with more than 100 characters.
that Wii is still competing with PS2 and original Xbox from the specs alone.
This could be very intreasting.
Vitality Sensor+ FTW!
i don't see it happening since there's hardly been any N4G articles about it lol. personally i think Nintendo needs to reveal a Wii 2 [HD] for their sake but don't care either way at this point in time.
Damn I for one sure wouldnt care.
I want a Wii but with the guts of a PS3. That would be so sexy! I would definitely get that.
lol they are affraid of Playstation move
Why would they be afraid, they've made profit on every console sold, Sony are the ones that are afraid. Of what Nintendo will do next. Otherwise why would they be releasing the Move?
Yeah, I think the only time Nintendo did not make a profit was with the Virtual Boy or the N64DD. Everything else they've ever done has been successful enough to break even and more.
um so you know playstation had been working on move well before nintendo decieded to half ass rush sonys idea to the market.
Hello there, I'm Wii Motion Plus. Have we met? I help the Wiimote become more precise with true 1:1 motion. I've been doing this job since I came to market in the summer of 2009.
Nintendo already has this gen in the bag, still enjoying good sales, and may be looking to leave everyone behind with something new while MS and Sony are still wallowing away with their 4-5 year old machines. Nintendo is clearly ahead of the game right now. If they do announce a new machine, I like it, they not only beat the hell out of their competition this gen, but are still on the offense. Good for them, not messing around.
^Get out of here, nobody is afraid of that is a Wii ripoff
The only ones that know what Nintendo are doing are Nintendo. But they have so much money now they could afford to totally kill the opposition tech wise if they wanted to. If they do or not is another matter. It would be funny if they did though, at low cost as well.
Lmao you really think nintendo the world largest half ass game system maker could top sony in tech? You my friend are nuts~!
They did last generation. The gamecube was more powerful than the ps2, didn't you know?
When your pushing consoles and games like the Wii is, I highly doubt they would start all over in this economy. Everyone in Nintendo has said a Wii successor is a way's away. If anything comes up within the next couple of years it would be the Wii HD. Fully compatible with current Wii games though. Too soon for new consoles, heck the Wii is not even 4 full years old yet.
I wonder what kind of controller a new Nintendo console would use? I like the Wii Remote and Nunchuk, so hopefully they'll keep them, but this time have BOTH an accelerometer and gyroscope built into the two, and maybe give the Wii Remote a standard ABXY button layout for more options.
Gotta say that neither look to be doing anything really new - just building on what is already there - and building on something that non wii owners just dont care about
the next wii will be a wii it won't be any different in hardware but you will have to stick an eel up your peehole to play it.....electricity generated from your weenie and the eel and the wii will power your entire house and feed a small croation child for 2 months.
Dont forget they will charge you an extra 100.00 and throw in a free dvd player.
for what?the wii is still doing good
I think they'll wait another year to see if MS and Sony can really start digging into their casual market-share. Nintendo seems to be making too much money right now to preemptively strike with a new console -that seems like too much of a risk for such a profitable console.
Wii...... .....been there done that.
On the one hand, this seems far-fetched. On the other, Pachter did finally say that he gave up on expecting this to come...
power of the xbox 2011 ? they could probley sell somthing in between that of ps3 and 360 for not to much of price maybe a 6 core processor 512mb-1gb of ddr3 ram blu ray drive 500gb-1tb hdd wifi wow mario in 1080p link in 1080p wow that would amazing.
wii is dominating if it had better graphics hd wireless w good online the console war would be over they have motion contols on lock if they could match multiplats and hd nintendo exclusives id buy it but i think itl come next e3 after they see natal and move stealing buisiness
has to be a whole new console, that is what you are saying. The Wii as it is will see tough copetition on Natal and Move. Nintendo will have for the first time direct competition for its Wii
What you just said is, the wii is perfect as is, except it needs better everything but controls. Try that again
Unveiling a new console would be an awful idea for nintendo. The majority of their user base are casual, family types. The last thing they want is to feel like their investment is obsolete already. I really think they'd have a hard time achieving this same level of success right now.
The wii has sold over 70 million units, but not even half of that was to core gamers, the wii became a pop phenom that retirees and stay at home moms purchased for the pack in game wii sports and any accessory that came out for that game (balance board,steering wheel,etc). Other than that the system is not used very much in this demographic. Besides Nintendo's first party development, Third party developers could care less about the Wii considering sales rarely hit a million or even profit for that matter. Its a fad and fads die out, but unlike the others, it wont be in a blaze of glory because in the end Nintendo is still Nintendo. They'll work something out
Hell no but then again the Big N keeps the most wanted secrets better than any government in this world. Who knows maybe they will until then... If so Sony and MS should be shittign themselves now. Fact is Nintendo used the wii to build up for the proverbial "What is to come". Nintendo never looks at the present they only look forward. I don't see a successor to the wii anytime soon as the wii hasn't been used ot its full potential (motionplus kids not graphics). Also, considering they can still profit from its current console, Nintnedo will use the funds acquired from Wii sales to the R&D for the successor which will utilize some kind of new innovation that will bring the competition to its knees. Fact is for Sony and MS fans they best hope there is no successor. Nintendo usually don't release a successor unless it does something that the current imcubent cannot do. Yes. They have been working on the Successor since day one launch of the Wii. Yes, Nintendo has the funds neccesary to see the development for the Succesor to go smoothly. BUT. As iwata stated though not the exact words "wii 2 needs more than hd it needs something new". Considering how long it took to develop the Wii I don't see a successor anytime soon. next year would be much more realistic. and Iwata is right HD isn't enough hell graphics failed for the gamecube tis why ninty ignored graphics. why use something that didnt connect with the game plan? wut sony and ms fans should be worrying is IF ninty does infact announce a new console. beware they may have donned a new control schematic that will make move and natal obsolete and bring back sony and ms to the dust as far as revolutionary controls go. of course this text here is all nothing but mere speculation from a guy who owns a PS3 and a Wii and formerly a 360. But this is what i think is going on in the nintendo's "Area 51" = Figuring out A: new control schematic that will make even motion controls obsolete. B: New control Schematic which will not only enhance the motion control experience but add a wole new level of control (insert w/e u think of here)(my insert be using some sort of mind control where ur thoughts are the controller which has been done but on the pc platform) C: (insert W/E u can think of). hm. Too much text. I would luv to summarize it but i cant D:> ... but anywho my opinion is this: No successor announcement as that wud deter wii sales a bit and since the wii is still making the cash just use them surplus fund for R&D for the successor. simple shit really and thats why i say this artcile is full of BS. hm looked at it again and i have typos damn it...
they do not allow users to download wiiware and VC onto this console that they have already purchased on there regular wii at no charge. If this is not done i will not buy one as many other wont im sure as well. No matter what the machine does I will not buy one unless this is allowed.
