New Nintendo console system confirmed with release date window. Wii 2?
That second statement, put into laymenís terms means that the system wonít be releasing until after March 2012. Nintendo wouldnít just shrug its shoulders about how much money it thinks the new system would make because it needs to state real numbers to investors. So, the new system definitely wonít be released before March 2012.
The best news: the system will be playable at this yearís E3, June 7-9. This means some games must be partially ready and there will be plenty of impressions on how the new controller works and the systemís current level of performance. Iím looking forward to finding out if the system really does house more power than a PS3 or Xbox 360, and if that means anything for the games right now.
Nintendo started off the note by updating us that over 86 million Wiiís have been sold world wide. Thatís an amount that causes me to take a deep breath. Despite the lackluster system that it is, those numbers are a testament to just how large the gaming market is and how many people want affordable gaming.
The Wii is still the cheapest home system, and provides different levels of gameplay appealing to broader audiences. While the second part is no longer exclusive to Nintendo (as in Motion Controllers are everywhere), perhaps if Xbox 360 and PS3 can get their prices down to $200 by this holiday, they might catch up before the Nintendo makes their next move.
