    The Hot Topic : Whats Next For Nintendo?

    I guess by now we can finally say that Nintendo have turned it around since the small degrees of success that they had with the Gamecube. The Wii and DS have sold millions worldwide and they still have a few more years in them yet but what is next for Nintendo? Do they stop all this innovating lark and just make the DS 2 or WII (Thats two in roman numerals) or would you like to see even more innovation on the part of the Nintendo? Really you canít deny the success of both systems. The handheld market was ready to be rocked with the release of Sonyís Playstation Portable and it seemed that Sony where on course to dominate another market until the Nintendo DS hit the scene with its quirky controls and quick pick-up-and-play game aesthetic. Meanwhile Microsoftís Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 where to busy focusing on each other to even think about the Wiiís success.

    Obviously we have to go through, Nintendoís patented iteration-colour-cash-in period yet where we see hardware reproduced in every colour under sun, before we actually hear anything about a new system. Once weíve seen those we can move on to the next really big announcement by Ninty. Lets be honest they are going to ride on the success of these systems before moving forward but thats nothing new and it makes perfect sense.

    In the handheld department could you possibly see another Game Boy type system where you only have one screen and buttons. It would feel like a big step backwards. We all know the only reason its called the Nintendo DS and not the Game Boy DS is because they didnít know how successful it would be but now the DS has overcome that and maybe even surpassed the Game Boy name. Do we see a DS 2. I predict that we will actually see a second DS with flasher graphics and with Wii-esque motion sensing built in. The possibility for a camera, built in internet support and upgradeable firmware all seem probable. But this is a few years away and Iíd expect another slimed down version before another generation. Iíd also add that they would wait for Sony to make a move with a PSP2 but at the moment Nintendo seem to be in a world of their own by just focusing on their own products and systems.

    The Wii is only a year and a half old so to be talking about another version seems weird and far off. Expect multiple coloured Wiiís before a Wii 2 although is a Wii 2 the next step. People have been talking about the Wii as a constant platform. It can be updated, its key demographic doesnít care about graphics therefore why do Nintendo need to invest in another platform? The Wii has the install base it needs to just make new controller shells every few months or two to gather interest and to keep momentum until the next shell comes along. This might not please the hardcore Nintendo fanís but they have games like Smash Bros. to keep them happy.

    I'm not really sure where Ninty can go from here game-wise.

    Their two biggest releases (SSBB and MKW) are both being released extremely close to each other. Most of the world has SSBB and Mario Kart Wii is released in Europe in less than a month.

    The DS I picture something like an Iphone in the future one large screen with touchscreen capabilities controlling the whole thing. In the event of an old school game you would have touchscreen display of the old school button setup. Improved graphics of course. Motion sensing big NO people do not need to be jerking around a handheld..lol That would end up in more deaths then there are broken t.v's do to wii-motes. All Nintendo could do for safety on that end is give you a bottle of super glue and say "apply to hands, place game unit in hands, have fun removing when done" lol won't happen

    For the Wii who knows whats next, graphics improived as HDTV picks up market share for sure, but beyond that who knows. Improved controll skeme's? player recognition "eye toy style camera."
    The Wii will not last forever!
    Like Frummage said they already released the big Titles and unless Nintendo comes up with some new really big hits they need a new generation to bring out the Big guns again. Nintendo doesn't do sequals like everyone else. They come out with an improved version with an improved console everytime. Sequals on would end up killing the very long lasting franchise success Nintendo has had.

    Interesting read.

    For Nintendos next console I'd love to see a proper hardcore gamer one, no fancy motion controls. No stupid friend codes.

    Hell, I just want Nintendos version of the 360.

    For sure the days of button mashing are over. Anyone who comes out with an old school controller next gen is just commiting console suicide.

    It's not if motion controll will be included the question is to what extent and what else will they think of to add to it.
    It's not just Nintendo but all of them. The other 2 have to also have some crazy concepts in the works after getting their butt handed to them this bad so far by the underdog.
    With Nintendo's Motion Controll, Sonys Camera recognition, And Microsoft probably already putting the patent on Mind Controll ha ha, It's pretty safe to say gaming will never be the same again.

    Do calloused thumbs go to heaven when they die?

    Well, if they could take a big step from what they got now then sure that would be great. I was sorta just thinking about what they got now, and that I wouldn't want it to be exactly the same. But yeah, if they did take it up a big notch then that would be cool =]

    ^ i dont think ms and sony are stupid they no that the old control scheme isnt as popular but they wont go to motion controls.

    like nintendo will do with there next console (hopefully, something new and exciting) and i dont see ms and sony just going for motion sensors.

    wezeles----i dont think so, having looked at nintendo's best games, does brawl use much motion controls, i seen on ign that they would rather use a game cube controler than the wii wheel, this shows that nintendo the people that made the console arent using the motion controls that much so i cant see the other 2 just ditching there controls as i no theres people out there who laugh a the wii controls
