The lights are on
Sounds like the only big hardware release from Nintendo that we'll have to look forward to is the 3DS. Because the current Wii has been a success holiday after holiday, and with huge releases this year with Mario Galaxy 2, Kirby's Epic Yarn, and DK Country Returns, there's a chance we won't see a replacement anytime soon. According to Nintendo's Reggie Fils-Aime, the company is still looking to sell more Wii's before moving on to something next-gen.
"As we sit here today we're saying the Wii has many, many more units to sell," he told Kotaku. "After we've reached an installed base of 45 million here in the U.S., we can have a conversation about the next generation."
Fils-Aime says Wii sales peaked in its third year with more than 30 million Wii's in homes. When asked if we could be seeing a successor come holiday 2011, Fils-Aime replied: "No."
Do you think the Wii is about due for an upgrade? Or are you happy with what you've got?
I'm sorta happy with my Wii right now, the same goes for my 360 and PS3 as well, besides the 3DS, I'm not spending another penny on new hardware.
The Wii is going to need an upgrade if Nintendo wants to keep up with Sony and Microsoft. I wouldn't be surprised if Nintendo announces a new console next year and then release it a few years later.
An upgrade would be NICE. Nintendo needs something new, cuz I am getting tired of having to swing my hand EVERY TIME I want to slice a dude in pieces with my chainsaw arm on MadWorld.
well i think tha the wii we have now is oka but i would liket to see some new changes not saying a total new makeover or anything im saying like a impovement
I personally would like to see nintendo make a gaming platform that can compete with the PS3 and 360, and I dont mean in sales, but with hardcore gaming. THAT would be awesome.
Don't have a Wii. Never will
I agree, I don't want to plunk down another $500+ for a graphical upgrade.
Because you know if Nintendo does it, by rule Sony and Microsoft must copy.
Duh, who else is tired of having a Gamecube 1.5?
I think like a lot of people here I wouldn't mind a new gen of wii if it weren't for the fact that MS and Sony would HAVE to upgrade as well. But as much fun as I have/had with my wii it is very difficult for me to switch from watching anything in HD (Pc@1920*1200, Ps3, 360, movies or even tv) to playing the wii. The graphics just look horrible on some games (No More Heroes) when you're used to everything at a 720p minimum
yes we need better graphics and performance
