Post IGN Speculates on Nintendo’s Wii 2



IGN postulates about the next generation Nintendo console (sometimes speculated to be the Wii 2). The original Wii launched in the United States in Nov. 2006, which means a new console might be just around the corner.

“Wii 2″ is the name we’re using to refer to Nintendo’s next home video gaming console, the system that will serve as a successor to the wildly successful current Wii machine. We don’t yet know for sure what the system’s official name will be, or if it will even continue using the brand “Wii” at all – Nintendo’s had a lot of diversity in its system names over the years, from the straightforward “Nintendo Entertainment System” to titles that have highlighted form factor (“GameCube”).

Wii 2 has not been officially announced by Nintendo yet, other than being confirmed to be in development by key executives with the company in various interviews.

“We are always preparing for the next hardware,” Nintendo President Iwata said in July 2008. “We are under development.”

Nintendo consoles have traditionally only lasted for about five years before the Big N has introduced a successor.

A handful of vocal analysts and journalists like Wedbush Morgan’s Michael Pachter have done their best to popularize the idea of the “Wii HD” in recent years, suggesting that Nintendo is falling behind its competitors by not upgrading its current console to support high-definition visuals. Nintendo remains unconvinced of that, and continually dismisses the idea that Wii’s follow-up simply needs to add HD support and be done with it. Rather, Big N execs have repeatedly offered the opinion that Wii 2 won’t be revealed until it can truly set itself apart from its predecessor in a surprising way.

Nintendo’s other new piece of hardware – the handheld Nintendo 3DS system – may well be a precursor to the path that the company’s next home console will take. In an interview we conducted with 3DS project lead Hideki Konno at the most recent E3 show, the developer revealed that Nintendo has been trying to make a stereoscopic 3D display happen for a long time.

Again, it’s a total guess to suggest that stereoscopic 3D might also feature into Wii 2 in addition to the 3DS. But if Nintendo were able to make 3D happen without glasses on family’s living room televisions in addition to on their new handhelds, it would certainly be surprising enough to warrant a new piece of hardware.

Hopefully the games on the 'Wii 2' will be much better than the Wii. It might make me almost as excited as the 3DS.

The only way that Wii can improve, is virtual reality. Nuff' said.

Or maybe that can just put out better games. You know, like the ones they barely ever release.

There are good games if you know where to find them.

I hope they make the Wii HD! D: I'm getting really sick of everyone talking about the Wii's 'graphical limitations' and all that and I would like super pretty graphics. There are good graphics on the Wii, though- like, say, Rune Factory Frontier and A Boy and His Blob.
