Next Wii Coming 2012- Official Announcement!
Nintendo has just announced news about the next Wii, due for next year. A playable version of this new gaming console will be available this summer at the E3 gaming expo in Los Angeles. The E3 expo is of course on June 7th, so mark your calendars! President Satoru Iwata from Nintendo stated that the company will “propose a new approach to home video game consoles.”
Iwata went on to say that “it’s difficult to make 3D images a key feature, because 3D televisions haven’t obtained wide acceptance yet.” While no specifics have been mentioned about the next wii, we do know that Nintendo will have at least 3 years to make their mark with console sales before Microsoft and Sony follow with their new Xbox and PlayStation devices.
What we can expect with Nintendo, however, is to be brought true innovation into our living rooms. Although the Nintendo Wii had sub-standard graphics, the Wii was the first to bring motion gaming to our homes, long before the Xbox Kinect or the PlayStation Move arrived. Of course, the new Wii might just be a re-hash of the current generation with a few upgrades but if the company hopes to remain a player in the gaming industry, it must stay innovative.
