Wii HD, more like Wii 3D
posted by Marley Silverbrand
It seems like it has been years that we have heard talks from Nintendo fans, and even the mainstream media that Nintendo will release a successor to Wii with High Definition capabilities. Nintendo has shot down all of those rumors, but now Nintendo is interested in making a successor to the Wii with 3D capabilities.
Nintendo's president Saturo Iwata informed the Japanese newspaper Nikkei that he is watching the 3D TV market very closely. He also said, “If you display a 3D image, the image quality becomes extremely bad, so we’d probably do it with the next system”, he said. “We’re thinking that the timing should be once the 3D television adoption rates crosses the 30% mark. We’re looking at the adoption trends.”
I really can't express anymore how much I hate 3D. It is such a gimmick. But if Nintendo can find away to make 3D work at home, then I might be a little sold on 3D. We will keep an eye on this story, as it continues to develop.
