While younger gamers have flocked to the brand, more mature consumers remain reluctant to jump on board. Skylanders move forward with trappable enemies, though I doubt it’ll turn stubborn heads.

Wii U Is 3D Capable, But Not a Focus for Nintendo

Posted on Wednesday, July 6 @ 10:42:09 Eastern by

Long before the Wii U was announced and rumors of the touchscreen-equipped controller surfaced, there was speculation that Nintendo's next home console would be primarily focused around 3D, much like the 3DS. However, E3 came and went without even a mere mention of 3D for the new console.

Nintendo is now saying that the Wii U is "technologically" capable of 3D, but it won't be a main focal point of the console due to the slow adoption rate of 3DTVs.

If you are going to connect Wii U with a home TV capable of displaying 3D images, technologically, yes, it is going to be possible, but that's not the area we are focusing on...


Said Satoru Iwata, President of Nintendo.


... When it comes to the home console, it depends upon the availability of 3D TV sets at home, which, unfortunately, is not expanding enough. And rather than pouring a lot of energy into that kind of area, with the Wii U we'd like to focus more on each Wii U owner being able to have an equal opportunity to enjoy it.


Maybe we'll see a glasses-free Wii U controller in the future to go with the 3DTV?

While we're on the topic, how about a show of hands comments from those of you who have or plan to purchase a 3DTV before the end of the year.
