We have some pretty major news to bring to gaming fans now, especially if you are a Nintendo Wii owner. Nintendo America president Reggie Fils-Aime has just said that the next Nintendo Wii console, aka the Wii HD won’t have support for 3D visuals, unlike the recently released Nintendo 3DS handheld.
“Glasses-free is a big deal. 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 3D, likely, that won’t be it.”
It’s quite a bold statement to make, one perhaps which could have been made at this years E3 event instead. However, it’s also pretty exciting that Nintendo are even teasing about the next Nintendo home console, especially since those rumors on a Wii HD seemed to have died down dramatically.
We have mentioned that the highlight of E3 2011 could be the suprise announcement of the Xbox 720 console, but how amazing would it be if Nintendo stepped up to the plate as well and announced their next console. I’m not sure about you, but Reggie’s latest intervew has got us excited about the upcoming few months.
Firstly, what are your thoughts on the fact that the next Nintendo console is unlikely to have 3D – Is this a problem for you? Secondly, do you think we’ll see the Wii HD announced at E3 2011 or not?
