    no but they could make the wii2 as powerfull as they want.

    and can some1 explain the logic that sony lose money when a ps3 sells?

    It costs more to make it than it does to sell it because it costs so much for processors, blu-ray components and the rest
    If something isn't working try turning it off and on again

    Casual and good games with alright visuals can only take you so far.

    I definately agree with this.

    And I don't know who said it but, Nintendo does have more gaming experience.

    Oh and at Apple_Guy, I think that is his name. The PS3 takes money to make, yes, it does, but they charge more. Because then what is the point?

    The NES cost $199 at launch in the late 80's. The SNES cost $199 at launch in the early 90's. The Virtual Boy cost $180 at launch in the mid-90's. The Nintendo 64 was launched at $199 in the mid-90's. The Gamecube was launched at $199 in the early 2000's. The Wii was launched at $250 in 2006. Does anyone see a pattern here? The next Nintendo console will pack in all the horsepower they can get from an at most $300 (but more likely $250) console while still making a reasonable profit and that's it.

    also the more they produce the cheaper the production becomes. so eventually they will make a profit on each console sold. the also assume that you aren't just going to buy the system, but you're also going to get an extra controller or 2, some games, other accessories, and maybe some blu-ray dvds. all of which they do make money on. they were losing $250 per console at first, but that amount is recovered pretty quickly with games costing $50 per(and not many people only buy 1 or 2 most get 10-20 at least) and a controller for $50, blu-ray dvd remote for $20, PS3 Eye for $40, etc. as you can see they get that lost money back relatively quickly, plus since the price of the components they use went down as did other manufacturing costs they are pretty close to making a profit per console by now if they aren't yet.

    Nintendo always starts work on their next console right after they launch the prior. They aren't a big company like Sony, they can't afford to wait. Remember Nintendo is the only true game company making consoles. The other two pull in more money off DVD players, TVs, and Windows (Operating Systems).

    Anyways the new console will probably have some shocking new technology. At GDC 06 they had a helmet that allowed you to play a game mentally. Maybe that will be the new technology? It won't be a focus on graphics, although they will increase them a lot.
