    No New Console Until Needed, Nintendo Says

    At Nintendo's recent financial results conference, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata stated that there was no need to follow the current industry trend of releasing a new console every four to five years. According to Iwata, "as we continue our research and study for new hardware, when we will be able to launch a new kind of hardware will actually depend on when we can change entertainment completely, and so have a strong impact on people around the world."

    In response to the current trend, Iwata said that "scheduling for a rather fixed launch date 4 years from today, regardless of future changes in the industry and the market, appears to be too inflexible an approach to us,"

    "Also, since Nintendo's hardware engineers and software creators are always communicating closely, only when both teams agree that it is time to challenge the market with new hardware that we will launch it. So, it is not a correct observation that we are having any trouble deciding on the launch timing of the next hardware."

    Iwata also denied rumors of a new DS. "We are not suffering from the shortage of new ideas for DS. I heard that some of the attendees to our October 10th conference were expecting to hear about a new portable machine announcement, but we never had that kind of notion in the first place,"

    Old topic

    But somehow I saw this coming. If you think about it: The current consoles are a bit different than the last one's with there online communitys.

    So they can "live" longer if the company handles the online part good
    Tip of the day:
    A big mistake a lot of you make is that wiiware games will be free.

    Wiiware is just the same like the virtual console. Its different in that it offers new games instead of old console games.

    I can think of some easy games ( Like tetris and some other in that direction ) that can be free but the majority will cost money.

    I think this is a bluff. There are too many reasons to move the gaming system to the next level whatever that may be.

    What do people want out of their console?

    1. good games
    2. social elements both in person and online
    3. some measure of convergence with other media devices to save space and combine features
    4. full compatibility with modern TV's, i.e. 1080p or better
    5. portability

    Elements like data storage are relative. The next console will undoubtedly have much more storage so hopefully hard drive expansions will not ever be necessary accessories.
