    Its official, Nintendo has announced a new system one to be more powerful than the Ps3. Gonna go HD finally and cost significantly more than the Wii at 350-400 US dollars. To be released next year however it will be playable at this years E3 in June. Since I grew up with Nintendo I am always excited about a new console, even though I have not given my Wii much play time. Here is the article:

    Now time to get ready to wait on line for a day just like I did for the Ps3 and Wii icon_smile.gif (Why do I find that fun?). What you guys think about the up and coming console?

    Apparently it can't come too soon. Nintendo just reported horrible financials with sales falling overall by nearly 30%:

    Sorry but until Nintendo starts offering better titles no way in hell I'd even consider buying it.

    Only so many times I can play Mario/Zelda/Metroid/etc.

    Of course the sales are gonna go down when everybody already has a Wii whose gonna be left to buy it? I don't think it's a bad thing they're sales have gone down, they've already won over and saturated the market, the total sales from the Wii are probably massive, it has to stop eventually.

    First party games are always going to be the same- but seeing as how this one is "more powerful than the ps3" we should see real (good) 3rd party (nonparty) games.

    Oh- and the whole "more powerful than the ps3" bit... that's nothing to brag about- the PS3 was launched in 2006 for fuck's sake!!! The wii2 would be a joke if it isn't.

    Can't wait for E3 though- more NGP news and wii2 stuff...

    Wii has sold 86.1 million units world wide which is almost equivalent to PS3 and 360 sales combined, the market is saturated and a lot of consumers who are buying PS3 or XBOX right now already own a Wii.

    Its about time for an upgrade since Wii doesnt directly compete with XBox and PS3, it started with a much lower price tag and a different approach to gaming altogether which makes people more likely to own a Wii and another console. Now that Microsoft and Sony realized the potential of motion sensor technology and are fighting back with Kinect and Move the only difference among these systems comes down to game titles. I just hope the new wii has all the graphics power wii never had.

    Yes! Finally someone else who liked quest 64! icon_smile.gif

    I'm interested in where they'll take this new console as long as there are better games available than PetzDoctor HD and all that crap. =/

    A new Super Mario RPG would be amazing.

    Yeah wii te-wo uh not gonna happen.

    Reason 1: The X-box connecy used all the Nintendo ideas that was suppose to be for the wii 2 that was suppose to be release in 2010 1 year ago.

    Reason 2: With current law suit claims if Nintendo really release the wii 2 they might get sued by Microsoft by 98% chance.

    But, a issue arises Microsoft hasn't tried to sue why?

    Reason for no sue on nintendo: Nintendo started the idea before 2010, and had it patiend before Microsoft did. So I Microsoft did sue Nintendo would win.

    But with the release of the 3-ds why bother to buy another wii? 3-ds can connect to Youtube, i-tunes, and net-flix all in you're hand with wi-fi street pass option.

    So In my opinion wii 2 bad Idea compaired to 3-ds. why?

    The 3-ds actually has more hard drive memory than wii 2, goes 3-ds, and has new features coming like actuall movies like how to train you're dragon for younger kids. So wii 2 is just a repeat of wii 1 just no remotes a constant head gear.

    So If you think i'm wrong saying 3-ds is better than wii look up the facts on offical nintendo sites.
