Nintendo Wants "New Approach" With Wii Successor

Illustration for article titled 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.

"We want to have a new approach with the Wii 2... we want to actually make good games."

-Satoru Iwata

ooooooo BURN! No but seriously, there haven't been many Wii games that I actually like as games. They've been more like distractions that last for a while and then become boring.
