Nintendo has confirmed development for the next iteration of the Wii. And as for what will be in store, true to most beginnings, silence is golden but is it always so? There are no cats let out of the bag just yet, but what can be guessed is the machine will have more than a high-definition upgrade.
“If asked if making the Wii compatible with high definition will get players throughout the world to buy it, I would of course say ‘do you think it would sell with just that? It needs something new,’” Nintendo boss Saturo Iwata said to investors, according to Computer & Videogames’ report.
US Chief Reggie Fils-Aimé made similar claims a month ago, and Iwata is finally echoing his US counterpart’s sentiment. Iwata knows high definition is in and it’s making roads into more markets.
Analysts predict built-in storage will more than likely be included and it will be backwards compatible. Even more far fetched is that the Wii 2 will not have a controller at all. A camera system will allow gamers to truly interface with the next generation of games. DDR and other motion capture arcade games will feel like something from last decade, and Star Trek enthusiasts couldn’t be more thrilled.
Holodeck technology here we come. Well, not yet, but there is a bright future to get gamers off the couch. Nintendo will be leading the way.
