    Hi, are you glad for the Nintendo 3DS?

    Well, this device has the potential to move the game industry far beyond. But, what is next?

    Do you expect the next Nintendo home console by 2011-2013?

    A recent japanese report show that Nintendo plans to transforrm the 3DS to a home console. What that means?

    No new Nintendo home console anymore!!

    The 3DS will be the ONLY (fully integrated) portable/home console from Nintendo in the next 5 years. They plan to launch some accessories that complement the 3DS, such a wireless HDMI/VGA connector to play your 3DS games on your HDTVs. Off course without the 3D effect until the stereoscopic HDTVs appear. Also a pointer device that allows using the Wiimote/nunchuck to play your 3DS games instead the 3DS controls.
    This strategy is made to compete against Apple (the next fierce Nintendo competitor) iphone new strategy to play games, and some cellphone developers will follow this way like in these pics.
    In addition, the 3DS will make an extensive use of 3G network for its online strategy.

    I don't think that the 3DS is powerful enough to be a single handheld/console device. The graphics may look near 360/PS3 quality on the small screen, it may even be around Gamecube performance level, but when you blow them up on a big screen it'd look worse than the Wii. As graphics have been a big area of contention for Nintendo this gen I doubt that they'd want to be even further behind next gen.

    It wouldn't suprise me if there was a 3DS adaptor that allowed you to play it on your TV but I don't think it would replace a new console. The Wii has just been too successful for Nintendo to abandon the console market, so I still expect to see a 'Wii2' unveiled by 2013.

    Exactly how is it? Unless the rumoured specs are all fake it isn't even as powerful as the Wii, so how can a less powerful console replace a more powerful one?

    If Nintendo's plan is to reduce their consoles power each gen then their success won't continue. They got away with it this gen because the Wii was cheap and different but people won't be as happy to settle for less next gen; especially if it is even weaker than their current console and even less powerful than the 360/PS3.

    To me, in order for them to succeed with that, they would need to expand the Game Cartridges to 8GBs to match the Wii's 9.4GBs of intial Game Data. To challenge XBOX 360 would be to add a 16GB-32GB size Game Cartridge which exists. Because an XBOX 360 Game = 15GBs Single Layer/30GBs Dual-Layer.

    A little advice for people that don't know him
    stickmode pretends to know what hes talking about, but he don't.

    Arent 360 games on DVDs?
    They go up to 4.something gig single layer.

    But from what I have been reading on some of my techy sites there is soon to be a 100gig disc coming out. Not for a while though as no players support it

    Dprinny, XBOX 360 games use HD-DVD Discs which hold 15GBs SL/30GBs DL. If they're not then why would they compete with Sony's BD 25GBs SL/50GBs DL? And if XBOX 360 did only use standard DVDs then what keeps Nintendo from adding Open World Games? PS2 & XBOX did.

    Where did you hear Xbox 360 uses HD-DVD disks? If they did, why would they have released an external HD-DVD drive (and then discontinue it)? PS3 may release some games on BluRay, but I don't think they use the full capacity.

    Well I have called all companies through their 1-800 numbers. A Microsoft Represenative stated they use HD-DVD discs. Although, I may be wrong. But however, Wii is compatible with DVD-Roms, but cannot play DVD movies, because of the way it was programmed. So even if the XBOX did [or does] they programmed it differently. I'm assuming they sold a seperate drive to accommodate everyone with a DVD player upgrade without making a built-in HD-DVD console upgrade (Market Strategy).

    They gave you wrong information, it's just a plain DVD drive. Or perhaps they meant that they use a DVD drive and that the console can do HD resolution and just explained it poorly.

    Whatever the case is, they should make a Blu-Ray USB Drive. That way they can take advantage of Blu-Ray Media such as BD Games & BD Movies.

    BD = lu-Ray [D]isc

    its a normal DVD drive.
    HD-DVDs where only usable via that HD-DVD drive


    Theres some legal thing with Sony about Blu-Ray that stops Microsoft from making a BluRay drive im sure theres something about it on the wiki

    Maybe you misundertood it. That is about there not being a 'Wii HD', not about there not being a new console to follow the Wii. He is right about the next console not just being a Wii with better graphics though, it has already been said by some Japanese developers that they think the next console will have something new that will 'blow people's minds'.

    The 360 uses normal DVDs, either 4.5GB or 9GB for dual layer, exactly the same as the Wii. The Wii does not have DVD movie playback because Nintendo didn't want to pay for the license, so it wasn't so much a technical reason as a financial one.

    Dprinny, I don't see anything like that on Wikipedia, plus I think that would be a legal issue.

    Raisinghelen, Wii can easily be turned into a DVD play with a bit of reprogramming (Ask those that have pirated their systems to make it play DVDs. Some of them didn't even need anything extra like a MOD Chip). Original XBOX could play DVDs, but with the way Microsoft programmed the system, it required a Playback kit which was a Controller Socket IR and Remote.

    Sony doesn't own Blu-Ray. They're part of the group of companies that helped develop it, but it's not technically a Sony product. There's no legal reason that would prevent Microsoft from releasing a Blu-Ray add-on. And I wouldn't be surprised to see the next XBox use a BD drive. And the next Nintendo console too for that matter.
