My bet is that, almost no1 here has even played on a Wii before, rofl.

I agree 100% with Restatement3dOfTed. I think that Sony and MS are using the old model getting the penny change out of Nintendo's "other possible market they once had".

Like it or not, Nintendo could do "hardcore games" (or whatever you wanna call them), but doesn't want to because the big bucks are on the other side of the road and they wanna keep it that way.

My other bet is that Sony and MS are going to that side of the road now with other offerings and Nintendo is gonna give hardcore (or eye candy lovers, actually) gamers out there a bone with it's next gen.

Cheers!

Really looking forward to Wii HD or whatever it ends up being called as I can't bring myself to play games like RE5 on the old control methods employed by PS3/Xbox360.

Oh and hardcore gamers own PC's.

Wannabee hardcore gamers own PS3/Xbox360.

Just my 2 cent as a PC and Wii fanboi :)

wish list??
a wii HD, so at least pretty graphics can distract us from the fact that we are just playing the same game over and over.

also, it's only game should be a high quality full 3D Pokemon MMO.

and all games can support keyboard and mouse as well as the controller, and there is NO "INNOVATIVE NEW" CONTROL MECHANISM! JUST GOOD GAMES!

and it's backwards compatible with all previous nintendo games, which can be upressed or flawlessly emulated to the way they were meant to be played, and it can make images of all of your old carts (so it has all the card sockets).

and it should also be a hand-held (so it can have a tv and controllers plugged into it). much like the DS, except with more side trigger buttons and two high res touch screens. of course this should also be backwards compatible with all hand-held Nintendo games the same as I mentioned for the console ones.

and it can support up to a million controllers. and patches are ILLEGAL, so every game has to be just perfect before it comes out, like the good ole days.

and it should be region free.

and all games are stored internally on the internal harddrive, which has a simple mirrored raid and can be easily backed up, upgraded ect like the PS3, games can still be bought on disks but are installed in entirety to the internal drives, and this process can be done in the background so you can do anything else while you're waiting, then there would be no loading screens because everything would be loaded off of a mirrored raid. of course games could also be bought via Digital distro, however it works like steam so you can just easily copy the files to another console and still have it work seamlessly.

and Nintendo should share their secrets with 3rd party developers so it's not just NINTENDO having success on their platforms.

and it should have a home-brew community, Nintendo takes 30% and approves games that go up. but otherwise free reign! free SDK! (just maybe a fee for submitting a game), Quality games only, they should keep it respectable, and devs keep IP!

this is good. we have two sources that there won't be a new console any time soon [iwata and reggie]. so we can see that the person who posted this article is dumb. however, we can also consider that they were paid by marketers to downplay their competitors.

Time will tell what they release.

Wii HD with DVD playback would be nice. They can keep the simple gfx, but maybe at least bump the gfx ability to better than PS2/XBox (original) yet under PS3/XBox360. More memory built in would be nice too, as well as a few more freebies in the Wii Channels built in. Wishful thinking perhaps.

1.I wish next wii would have better graphics,
2.LED based projector with hologram capabilities. Haha I know that's probably stretching it.
3.Better motion control.
4.Optional rom based plug in accesory for USB port so you can play your old Nintendo games such as NES,SNES & N64 without having to download them.
5.More memory
6Ability to download more plugins for better internet experience.
7.Backward compatibility with wii&GC games.

Perhaps the idea of liking older tech gfx is a cheap price point.

Also a possibility that Nintendo may have something in the works to go up against the rumored/not released yet
