Nintendo Confirms Wii Successor Will Be Launched In 2012; Preview In E3
As we reported earlier the rumor about the successor to Nintendos Wii Gaming Console has become true. Nintendo has confirmed its plan to introduce the successor to its gaming console next year. Also Nintendo will reveal this model in the upcoming E3 gaming expo to be held in Los Angeles on June 7th. Still there is no official details about the console and the controllers. But we can hope for a solid improvement in terms of graphics department allowing us to play games at HD. Also we can imagine that Nintendo will come with a improved controller for the new games. Earlier this month Nintendo has lowered the price of Wii by $30 and and started selling them for around $170.
The current Nintendo Wii has sold around 86 million from its launch to the end of the last month. So Nintendo will be happy if it simply matches the success of its current-gen home entertainer.
Bloomberg has provided the first official hint about Nintendo's next console with a quote from company President Satoru Iwata. Nintendo will "propose a new approach to home video game consoles," though it won't be a simple move to 3D, as Iwata notes "it's difficult to make 3-D images a key feature, because 3-D televisions haven't obtained wide acceptance yet." Given that motion gaming is no longer new and 3D is off the table until 3DTVs go mainstream, we can only say, Nintendo is planning on bringing genuine innovation to our living rooms. We suppose it also adds fuel to the rumor of a crazy next-gen controller to go with this next-gen console. Bring on E3, we say!
