    Or why not "Nintendo's next home console"? It's the less dumb name we can give it until an official name is announced.
    I don't see "64" in the Gamecube's name, nor "Gamecube" on the Wii's name.


    However, it's not noise worthy that it won't have 3D. Launching a console that needs 3D glasses right after one which's gimmick is glasses-free 3D would be a stupid move.
    And Nintendo doesn't want to force users to buy hardware besides the system. That's why it won't be glasses free either.

    I got a bad feeling about the Wii 2, it will most likely be just a revision with new features like the DSi.

    I don't think so. Based on what we've seen from Nintendo, they only make revisions to their handhelds (GB, GB Pocket, GBC, GBA, GBA SP, GBA Micro, etc). The only "revisions" they've made with their consoles is having a special edition version that only has a different color (25th Mario Anniversary Wii for instance, was just a red Wii).

    Either way though, I just hope it has a better software lineup than what the Wii had. Let's face it, the Wii lost this round in the console wars. My opinion, anyway.

    Guys, the only reason why people call it the Wii 2, or Xbox 720 or PSP2 or DS2 or anything like, is because they just take the current name, and just add whatever to differentiate it.

    It's easier to go Wii 2 instead of going Nintendo [insert console number here]. It's not going to be called Wii 2 just like the Xbox 360 wasn't called the YBox.

    Panasonic Q needs an introduction

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Panasonic_Q

    Made by both Nintendo and Panasonic and is a hybrid revision of the GC that has a DVD player, very rare, if you want to know more about it check out the Youtuber Gamester81, he has a video about it and owns one.

    No because companies usually start planning for their next console about a year after the launch of their latest one.

    It can still happen regardless, Doki Doki Suikoden was an ecchi filled April Fools attempt and it's a full game with a May 12 release.

    It won't be "Wii 2", but I hope they don't go with "Wii Too"

    Not just that, but why make an April Fools announcement over something so trivial as "we're not putting 3D on our next console"?

    maybe they will bring the revolution back, its a nice name. They said they wanted to put something new which would be innovative. i hope its something to improve gameplay than focus on motion controls... a new controller is not bad but not motion controller

    Are you an idiot? HERE is the source article: http://www.maxconsole.net/content.php?4533...-out-3D-support
    Taken directly from the FIRST POST. It has EVERYTHING TO DO WITH THE WII2.

    By the way, this isn't 4chan.

    How does this quote confirm that the Wii 2 exists?
    He merely said that Nintendo didn't publicly say what the next home console will be and that it probably won't have 3D functions.

    When will 3D die off?!
    Its just a gimmick (Although 3DS has done it right)

    You might want to point that accusation at yourself.

    You didn't even bother to check their source. Max Console is taking their information out of context. And so close to April fools...

    Here's the direct link to Max Console's "source"

    http://edition.cnn.com/2011/TECH/gaming.ga...o.3ds/?hpt=Sbin

    Wow, my faith in the intelligence of humanity has been severely diminished.

    Actually it DOESNT confirm that the Wii 2 exists. Merely that they've learned from the 3DS that they're not going to put 3d in their next console. We all know Nintendo is working on new hardware. To think otherwise would be stupid. But to see this quote as a "confirmation" would be even more stupid.

    Check your sources next time kids. The text on the Max Console page is taken completely out of context.

    Perhaps you ought to notice the reflection and study what the definition of the "Wii2" would be, it would be the console coming after the current wii, why because as of yet it is TO BE NAMED BY NINTENDO AND THUS PICKS UP NICKNAMES LIKE THE NEXT XBOX'S NICKNAME IS 720 FOR RIGHT NOW. ANY MENTION OF A CONSOLE BEING IN THE HOME CONSOLE SPACE BY NINTENDO WOULD BE ENOUGH TO WARRANT IT TALKING ABOUT A "Wii2".
    Quote from the CNN article "We've not said publicly what the next thing for us will be in the home console space, but based on what we've learned on 3-D, likely, that won't be it."
    In bold just for you. It's relevant to the "Wii2" perhaps you ought to read the ENTIRE article next time.
