    Iwata: Wii Is Not Next Gen

    Talking to Japanese business publication (Nikkei Business), Iwata distances the Wii console from the rest of the pack, stating the Wii is not an extension of a previous incanation and therefore it cannot be classed as 'next-gen'.

    "Nintendo is not working on a next-generation console. ‘Next-generation' implies that the console is an extension of previous installments. We believe that extending our current line will not lead to larger markets and could possibly even lead to smaller markets."

    Sounds like semantics. In fact, the Nintendo is the next gen and 360/PS3 are current gen with better graphics.

    Yea you're probably right, just i think a lot of people see the term 'Next-Gen' as being the latest processing power, the most advanced graphics etc, and maybe Nintendo are wanting to distance themselves a little from this.

    Well, if they were able to enchance a gameCube to play like the Wii, then I wouldnt say its next gen anyway.

    The Nintendo Dolphin is still known as a rumor for another Nintendo console. Iwonder if this rumor will be reality.

    The Wii doesn't seem to be much more advanced than an Xbox, so he's kind of right that it's not really a next gen console. It hasn't deterred me from buying one though.

    Hmmm, yeah, "next-gen" isn't really right for the Wii, it's not an upgrade, but technically it's "Next generation" if that makes sense to you. It adds a new concept to gaming, getting the gamer more physically involved with the game, but in the sense of next-gen technology, that's not REALLY right. I know what I mean if you don't.
    Play nice or die.
