    What do you think it will be?

    PS: i also mean even a different version of the wii. Sony made the slim PS3, so whats preventing nintendo from doing the same?

    WAY too early to think about this..
    Ninty should come out with a new console in 2015 since $ony and Micro$oft want to expand the 360 and PS3 untill 2015/16

    It'll probably have something to do with life, and how using the console makes you live it.

    I don't think we'll see a full-on, next-gen system from Nintendo for a while. My guess is they'll do with their home console what they've been doing with Gameboy and DS -- create an upgraded Wii, call it something like Wii Plus, it will have HD functionality, but many games for the system will likely still be playable on older model Wiis, sans the special features. It will probably feature a hard drive, as well as other minor features that are now common with next-gen systems. My guess is, they will just do whatever they have to do to get the system capable of playing next-gen games, but whatever it is, I think they will certainly carry the "Wii" name with them for at least one more system. The name is too hot and too huge worldwide. They will milk it 'til its utters bleed.

    Nintendo Entertainment System (nothing original there)
    Super Nintendo Entertainment System (they just added Super)
    Virtual Boy (took game out, added Virtual)
    Gameboy Color (they added Color)
    Gameboy Advance (they added Advance)
    Nintendo 64 (its a 64 bit Nintendo)

    It will be something with Wii in it, that name is as well recognised as iPod, Playstation & Hoover. It would be stupid of them not to use that name.

    I do reckon that Nintendo will be the next out of the three to release an all new console though.

    featuring a DVD player that plays DVD movies (sorry - had to jab at ya)

    have to keep backwards compatibility - some people have a huge investment in it
    Up the graphics - a lot more tv's have component and hdmi connectors now - just plop in a dual core GPU
    It would be cool if they opened up their 8bit library as free downloads - instead of using Wii points on them, but this wont happen. That would be something the other guys could not do - 8 bit market is closed (no profit) and they own all the licenses for that huge library of 8 bit games. I dont think any company is that generous though
    Build in mic and camera for video chats with friends - not an option to buy, just a standard feature

    At least give away these games as incentive to buy retail games. Say if you bought Metroid - Other M, you got Super Metroid or something for free.
