It’s Time To Put Your Wii Away

Well, it looks as though Nintendo is going to be the only major gaming company to release a new system next year. And quite frankly, given the Playstation 3 fiasco, they couldn't have picked a better time to go unchallenged. My only hope is that a photo-realistic Legend of Zelda game will be in the works.

Re: Wii’s successor system

Nintendo Co., Ltd. has decided to launch in 2012 a system to succeed Wii, which the company has sold 86.01 million units on a consolidated shipment basis between its launch in 2006 and the end of March 2011.

We will show a playable model of the new system and announce more specifications at the E3 Expo, which will be held June 7-9, 2011, in Los Angeles.

Sales of this new system have not been included in the financial forecasts announced today for the fiscal term ending March 2012.
