Nintendo Wants "New Approach" With Wii Successor

With the Wii successor, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata said, "We would like to propose a new approach to home video game consoles."


However, don't count on a 3D home console like Nintendo's newly released 3D-glasses free portable, the Nintendo 3DS. According to Bloomberg, Iwata said, "It's difficult to make 3-D images a key feature, because 3-D televisions haven't obtained wide acceptance yet."

It doesn't sound like Iwata is making a dig at 3D (and in turn, the 3DS), but just point out the facts: most people still don't own 3D televisions.
