    The future - what's next?

    Anyone have any predictions when Nintendo will release another console and the Wii will just be another Gamecube? What do you think the next console will feature? I'd imagine they'd keep motion controls but enhance the power of the system to keep up with the current generation or something. It would have to feature something new to sell as well as the Wii did; and what about virtual console purchases?

    Any predictions welcome.

    well, i think their next system will keep up with the graphics of the current gen. as for when, ten 8-10 years sounds reasonable. as for Virtual Boy 2, eff that lol!

    theres no telling what they will incorporate into next gen systems. absolutely no way to predict what type of technology will be available or whats even going to happen with this gen of consoles, people might get totally bored of motion controls over the next five years and decide graphics IS teh way to go.

    im sad ill only be around for another 2-3 generations of gaming consoles. id like to see what gaming will be in 100 years.

    8 to 10 years for their next system?

    Try 4 or 5 years.

    I don't really know what to expect from Nintendo next, they always seemingly have something up their sleeve. I honestly don't think it will be another gamecube though. I just don't think it will happen.

    well im no expert on console life but i heard that teh ps3/360 will be around for that long, so i figured the Wii would be as well. i mean, you cant just have a system like the 360 around for 4 or 5 years, its already been out for around 2, are you telling me its life is half over?

    Pretty much. Consoles usually stay around between five and six years until a new one comes out.

    N64-1996
    Gamecube-2001
    Wii-2006

    Xbox-2001
    Xbox 360-2005

    Ps1-1995
    Ps2-2000
    Ps3-2006

    So it's a range from from 4-6 years. I mean, it's possible that the 360 or PS3 will still be up and running during their seventh and eighth year, it's quite possible looking at the hardware of both of those two. For the Wii though, it just doesn't seem like one of those systems that'll be around that long.
