    If anyone thinks this is a "confirmation" they are completley stupid. Seriously what part of "We've not said publically" do you not understand?

    And for the record, Nintendo's Reggie Fils-Aime has also said there will be no talk of "Wii 2" until after the current Wii passes 45 million in sales. (In the US)

    Seriously this topic... [​IMG]

    I feel like this is very old news based off what I've heard for years.

    This is basing off opinions of hearing what Nintendo has wanted to do since 2005. My friend and I have agreed that the Wii was a prototype. It's not what Nintendo really wanted to do. That said, I don't think Nintendo is a risk-taking company. That's been frequently shown with poor third party support and turning with the 3D tide. Not saying motion control wasn't a risk, but it's not the step they probably should've made.

    Now for years, Nintendo has played around with the idea of holograms, (bring on the "holograms? You're an idiot) and for those who don't believe it's possible, do your research. I don't think it's financially smart right now, but it's the only way for Nintendo to not be seen as a follower. Nintendo has ran against the pack for a while now, it's strictly Microsoft vs. Sony, with Nintendo really competing against Apple right now. Nothing wrong with that. But if my suspicions about what Nintendo really wants come true, they would own E3. There's no way to come back to that kind of news. Sony and Microsoft would be stuck in their shitty little motion controller quagmire, and Nintendo would stand tall again. I WANT that to happen. But it won't. Because Nintendo isn't a risk-taking company.

    One thing they ought to do is fire Reggie Fils-Aime. The man clearly has no idea what he's doing. I'd do his job for free and do a much better job than that joke. He's a poor promoter.

    Regardless of what has been said, Wii2 is a codename. Like Revolution. They have never put a number after their name, it's always been something new. But I'm losing faith in the company that I've stuck behind for 22 years.

    It's not a confirmation, who said that? The only mention of a confirmation (me and you only) would be you. Confirmation requires them to say the name (my definition) of the product. Oddly enough you changed the subject (most likely sub-consciously though) the topic mentions the wii2, you said there was no mention,obviously it is relevant to the wii2, as MaxConsole was only using that part of the article by CNN.

    And you're the reason why the intelligence in humanity is so low.

    Actually the Wii mote was originally designed for the Nintendo GameCube. Sometime towards the end of that consoles lifespan Yamauchi said something like "were working on a new peripheral that will dramatically extend the lifespan of the GCN." However since the GCN was a dog and because it was limited by its tiny discs they decided to build an entirely new console around their new peripheral (aka the Wii mote.)

    tl:dr = You're half right.

    As for the rest of your post... 22 years? That's a long time to be a Nintendo fan. I guess this makes you in your early 30s?

    Can't wait till I'm 120 and finally realize the truth behind the pure stupidity that has been each of your posts (except maybe the second one).

    And with that, I bid you adieu, perhaps next time you'll make legitimate statements eh?

    Next time please point out exactly what troubles you in my posts. *slash*

    Don't be mad. Just check your sources next time, don't read things out of context, don't accept anything at face value, and please do your own thinking. It's not that hard.

    Peace be with you.

    Wouldn't YOU like to know?
    The original title of this topic, "Nintendo confirms Wii 2" is based on this article from MaxConsole.

    MaxConsole got its information from this CNN article.

    In the CNN article, Reggie said that their next home console will not have 3D support. That's all he said. No official announcements have been made.

    Bad journalism on MaxConsole's part. Honest mistake on the OP's part. Let's all be friends [​IMG]

    I'm glad we won't see 3D in the next console. It really doesn't make sense for gaming IMO.

    Sorry D9K (posted it before all the other posts were trashed).

    Also, I agree. 3D does not belong in gaming. It's bad enough that developers already focus more on graphics and multiplayer than actual gameplay.

    Gambia, The
    glass free tv could just be used by one person, at least if they use the same tech Nintendo used in the 3ds. The only other possibility would be holographic displays which, you guess it, are far from being ready. What we should also not forget is, that Nintendo just use a thing, if its ready for mass market. HD was, in their opinion not wide spread enough in 2006, so be sure, 3D TVs wont in 2013.

    Im sure that the Wii 2 will be released latest in 2012.
    Sales go bad in japan since last year and I'm sure they won't go up anymore, PS3 and PSP win a lot of ground, maybe with game like Zelda it will be better again.
    In Europe sales are not bad, but xbox360 owns the wii since some month.
    Its getting time Nintendo.
