Possibly HD, but then they would be hypocritical.   Though what company ISNT!?

In what way would that be hypocritical?

"When asked about display technology like HD and 3-D, Fils-Aime downplayed them as a necessity. “When people talk about high definition for the Wii console, our feedback is that that by itself will not create a brand new experience. Therefore, we're not interested. What we have to push for are groundbreaking new experiences. Technology has to enable it, not to be a means all by itself.”"http://www.industrygamers.com/news/nintendo-not-interested-in-wii-hd-says-reggie/

There is definitely more to list that I want, but that's my main focus there.

No new Wii, period. It will be a new system. Super Famicom/NES fell into the "same, but better" trap that put them in the red ocean.

Well, if SNES was a mistake, then I sure hope they haven't learned anything. 

But in the end it's about the games anyway. I often wonder why gamers cry for a new system... all it means is they get to shell out 300€ again. Nintendo could make exactly the games we want for Wii, there's no new console needed. Granted, HD will become obligatory eventually. 

 



Currently playing: NSMB (Wii) 

Waiting for: Super Mario Galaxy 2 (Wii), The Last Story (Wii), Golden Sun (DS), Portal 2 (Wii? or OSX), Metroid: Other M (Wii), 
... and of course Zelda (Wii)

All he's saying in that interview and every other one of the 5,000 Wii HD interviews is that HD is not enough of a reason on its own to release a new console. He's not saying they aren't interested in HD.

This is pretty obvious, isn´t it? Unlike they did with the N64, Nintendo offers a new channel to download more system memory, processor speed and on top of that you may download a hard drive. The result of that is the Power Wii or what is often refered to as Wii HD. Nintendo introduced the analog stick, the rumble feature, motion control and now they are introducing downloadable hardware to consoles.

Read the entire quote rather than cherry-picking four words... If you don't get it then, then all I have for you is pity.

Isn't a "Power Wii" the #1 equivalent to a "Power Dump"?

I was thinking along those same lines.

it seems to be rather a silly name.

maybe it will made more sense when more is known about it. hopefully.

I've already read it, I know what I read. It still says they're not interested in it, regardless of how you read it.  They need a reason to go HD and they haven't got the reason yet.  Which still means they're not interested.
