FEATURED VOXPOP samsmith614 Since game design is a business, I decided to see what's really selling well for the PS4. I did this search a week ago, and at the time, out of the top 20 bestsellers on Amazon 10 had not even been released yet. By now some have been released. But others still have not. And yet others...

Nintendo Needs Wii HD or Will "Continue to Fade"

Posted on Monday, November 8 @ 14:34:27 Eastern by
Industry analyst Michael Pachter says the Wii can't hang with the PS3 or 360 now that they have motion-control options.



The outspoken analyst Pach attacks Nintendo, citing their need to release a Wii HD if they want to keep up with the competition.

“You know frankly, the box isn’t as powerful and anybody who has an HDTV has to think twice about buying a Wii when they can get a 360 or PS3 for not much more.”

Pachter explains that the Wii sold an unprecedented number of consoles since it launched, and the market saturation is just "catching up on them". This comes shortly after the launch of both the PlayStation Move and Kinect for the Xbox 360, both of which pose stiff competition to the current leader in the console wars, the Nintendo Wii.

“I think Nintendo is kind of going to continue to fade unless they decide to refresh the box, and as we all know that Wii HD should be coming out next month…”

You don't need to be an industry analyst to see that unless Nintendo does indeed release new hardware, the momentum of Move and Kinect is going to bowl right over the Wii, especially since all 3 consoles are somewhat comparably priced.

Is the Wii's weak tech offering showing its age? Is the PlayStation Move and the 360's Kinect enough to steal the Wii's motion-controlled thunder? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
