I read something about confirmation of a dual analog control with a touch screen on it that could stream full games onto it from the console.
I think IGN is where I read that.
I hope they stick with the wii name, even though that's not the nintendo fashion. We will just have to wait until June.
Now you're just mashing it!
Nintendo, Super Nintendo, Nintendo 64.... they've kept the same naming scheme in the past... they could do it again... it wasn't until the Gamecube came along that they got off track.
Good call, haha. I should have said it's not really their recent trend. 64 - game cube - wii.
Personally I think they'll just announce an upgraded Wii, the Wii HD with 1080p, HDMI etc which would justify the price cut for the regular Wii. They're still selling lots of units and consoles are all about milking old technology.
Super Wii complete with your connection to SkyNet
HAHA, i would so buy it to try if they made the mind control thing :P. I bought the wii, played it for a week and sold it :(
Well I still have my original WII and it mostly gets played during parties with friends. If they offered an upgrade option I might be all over it for HD support if that extended to games that came out already. Also, I could just get the new one and give my current to my Grandmother on my Dad's side since she gets a kick out of the bowling. Now that I think about it though this is still speculation so I may be planning for naught.
"I have the power!!"
It's really hard to imagine Nintendo introducing a revolutionary new console. PFeenstra I think has the right idea and I don't think I'll be extraordinarily impressed. But who knows, Nintendo could have something cooking.
Well they ahd a very good run on the Wii so why not just keep it rolling.
Idk there's alot of rumors about some pretty awesome things Nintendo could come out with their next console, particularly the screen (High resolution, maybe capacitive?) embedded into the next controller, or having the 3DS integrate, but then again their just concepts and theories and could turn out to be vaporware.
I think Nintendo knows the Wii is lacking when compared to the capabilities of the Xbox 360 and PS3, especially with them biting into the Wii's niche market of being the "Virtual Reality, Life Like, Motion" conosole with the release of Microsofts Kinect and Sony's move, so if Nintendo is going to release a console it wouldn't make sense for them to put something out that's going to lag behind in the long run once more or compared to competitors current consoles so the next thing is undoubtedly going to be innovative and break some barriers
I wonder how powerful it will be in the end, it should be easy to trump PS3 and xbox even at competitive price points with today's tech but I kinda miss the old Nintendo that pushed boundaries, but the Wii was so successful and even the hardware itself was profitable from day one...which probably means they'll do just enough to get by with again.
The real question is will they convince mainstream America to buy into their gimmick once again. I'll go ahead and say probably so (gotta keep up with the Joneses) even though most Wii's started collecting dust about a month after purchase.
It not that hard to be successful selling the similar product twice to 'mainstream' in reasonably short amount of time
the real $$$ is likely to be found with the possibility of a "Golden Third Time's the Charm! " [Apple anyone?]
I can't possibly be the only one that thinks the brainwashing continues
just speculating here
"Don't Panic ! 'cause HH got's your back!"
