Iwata has already talked about the Wii 2 xD

thesithfreak2896d ago

so just when those last people buy a wii, and it reaches 45 million, nintendo screws them over and releases another one

kaveti66162896d ago

Ya? That's how they all work.

Parapraxis2896d ago (Edited 2896d ago )

@thesithfreak if they never set a goal how would they ever release a new system?
People buying a Wii late in the cycle aren't really getting "screwed" They will get the system at a cheaper price and have a very large library of games to choose from.
People still buy PS2's for that very same reason.

thesithfreak2896d ago (Edited 2896d ago )

trust me, at this point with the wii sales and ds sales, nintendo can go ahead and release another console, they made money day one of wii release.
and i think they need a head start, the industry has proven twice what a head start can do for you, no matter the quality of your console

dragon822896d ago

What makes you think they need a head start? They didn't get a head start this generation and they dominated it. Also Microsoft did get a head start and they will likely end up in last place when all is said and done. I fail to see your point.

thesithfreak2895d ago

a headstart would benefit nintendo because nobody is going to jump the gun and buy one this time around. the wii was appealing at first with new motion controls, but then people got disappointed with it very quickly. people will be more cautious of nintendo's next console

frjoethesecond2896d ago

I hope there's never talk about a wii 2.

Now an N64-2 or something like that is a different story.

bananlol2896d ago

would prefer a gamecube-2 or a snes-2 but thats just me.

Xander-RKoS2896d ago

Perhaps its a way to get people to stop asking them about it.

jay22896d ago

I see a console inbetween 360 and PS3 power for an E3 annoucment with an early 2012 release.

Neckbear2896d ago

I mean, the Wii was basically half plastic half Nintendium, wich was quite dissapointing.

I'm expecting something about as powerful as the 360, that never overheats and lasts 15 years.

Start mining that weird planet full of Nintendium again, Nintendo. I know you can do it.
