Well, I did read a rumor earlier that the new system will resemble a "Super Nintendo redesign."

I think it'd be neat if they just called it the Super Nintendo. A throwback to better, simpler times. Resurrect the name for their glorious return to the forefront of console gaming.

I'd expect Sega to do the same by naming their console "Dreamcast 2" and driving Microsoft out of the hardware biz entirely.

Plus they'll have 2 years to gain some nice headroom before MS and Sony release their consoles.

Either way i'm looking forward to this! Should be an interesting turn of events.
The power of the system means nothing as to who makes games for them. Think Saturn, Dreamcast, Jaguar, 3DO......

Killer Instinct 3 would be a nice start for the next Nintendo Console.

I'm not sure who owns the IP anymore, though Rare is stuck making Xbox 360 avatar accessories and Kinect games these days.

I was just stating that the improved power of the system will be a plus, not my main point.

He said the only games they make are mario themed or crappy, my point wasn't about the power of the system, my point was the fact that they are going to be attempting an about face to start being more open with third-party developers this time around, meaning there would be more games for it instead of leaving them in the dark and having it more likely to have games made for it making it more than just "mario themed or crappy".

Why was the PS2's enormous game library succesful? Sony was open with many third-party developers from the start.

Like I said, Nintendo acknowledged there mistake already:

Recently Nintendo president Saturo Iwata acknowledged the problem during a press conference and pledged to do a better job of supporting its partners going forward. "It is true that the third-party software sales ration on Nintendo are comparitively smaller," he said. "Wii's third-party software ratio is especially low"

"We need to decrease the concern that only Nintendo software can sell well on Nintendo platforms and third-party software cannot sell in the same volume. We will not make a trend similar to the one found for Wii in Japan now," he promised. "We feel a need to have closer ties with our third-party developers from the beginning."

Yep. I wish I was lying. They would then usually complain to me how ridiculous it was that Mario wasn't on PS2, and how much money Nintendo was losing because it wasn't...

Rare was far better when they were working with Nintendo and pumping out some of the best N64 titles ever made. They really went downhill when they jumped to Microsoft

Aye, unfortunately, Rare buggered off to Microsoft to make games that pale in comparison to their work with Nintendo (and before I get called a fanboy, yes, they do pale in comparison. Rare games on SNES/n64 were awwwwesome. Rare nowadays can't make anything to save their life.)

What I want is third party support that doesnt suck. First party Nintendo games are awesome, extremely high quality usually. There are only a handfull of third-party games on Wii that accomplish levels of awesomeness.

If Nintendo are courting Rockstar, then GTA V if it comes out on Wii 2 should be good. I wouldn't say Nintendo haven't come out with a new IP for ages, because they have, its just they've been more casual orientated. A new IP at launch would be great to be honest. Something that really showcases the technology. Maybe even a batallion wars/advance wars cross-over where you control army movements on touchscreen and the actual engagements as they occur like a 3rd person shooter on main screen. That'd be good.

If the pad does have a touchscreen, I can see possible uses, like inventory displays constantly acessible without pausing, or hotkeys - more buttons avaliable on touchpad without making a pad some kind of button coated plastic lump. FIFA, take a penalty without DAMN FRIENDS LOOKIN AT YOUR DAMN JOYSTICK MOVEMENT. Of course, like the rumours suggest, you could have Mario Kart split screen stream to each individual screen..to be honest, this could mean screenwatching is over.

My only problem is, Nintendo are saying this will change how we play consoles massively, so, If that is true, the things I have suggested seem more evolutionary rather than revolutionary. Elegantly circumventing problems like lack of buttons, or maintaining the flow of a game with no pausing to select items via a touchscreen. Perhaps that is revolutionary enough? I don't know.

Also, what about the wii backwards compatability rumours? How would that work with a touchpad controller?

Many questions, but only E3 has the answers.





EDIT: Interesting interview

http://www.computerandvideogames.com...s-wii-regrets/

Perhaps this signifies Nintendo moving towards more encouragement of 3rd party projects in addition to their own? Would make sense when you consider their rumoured courtship of R*.
