Finally Broke My Crowdfunding Rule

I've had a long-standing rule to avoid getting involved in any sort of crowdfunded activities.  I didn't donate to Shadowrun or Wasteland, but I did buy and enjoy both of them (I'm plugging both of those games right now, just so you know they're good).  I haven't...

DAILY MANIFESTO

Nintendo Working on New Home Console, Could Be 3D

Posted on Thursday, February 17 @ 08:18:54 Eastern by

The Nintendo Wii was always difficult to consider a true "next gen" console. The Wii was built on Gamecube-era tech and is easily trumped by the Xbox 360 and PS3's capabilities in both graphics and processing power. Instead, the Wii's big selling point was its unique motion controller -- and we all know how that turned out.

Despite mopping the floor with more powerful consoles sales-wise, the Nintendo Wii is showing signs of aging long before other consoles. Especially now that both the PS3 and the Xbox 360 have their own motion-controlled experiences that go above and beyond what the Wiimote is capable of.

And even though Nintendo's current focus is the 3DS, they're already hard at work on a successor to the Wii and it's possible it could be compatible with 3DTVs.

Speaking in a recent interview, Rob Saunders, Nintendo's UK Head of Communications, spilled the beans that Nintendo was indeed working on a new console, one that they have been developing since the Wii released:

We’ve had 3D running on past consoles for a number of years and we have had 3D running on the original DS, the Gamecube and the Wii. That’s no secret, we said that at E3 last year, but now it feels like the right time to bring 3D to the market...

He continued:

We’re always very keen at Nintendo, we always start work on the next home console as soon as the previous one’s released. So we are working on something and we’re always looking at new ideas and new developments, so that work is underway.
