Wii 2?

May 19, 2008 at 9:16 pm (Video, Video Games)

In an article in the latest issue of Game Informer (which is a great issue by the way) Game Informer did a news clip talking about the next generation of consoles. The article basically said the next consoles from Nintendo and Microsoft would debut in 2010, however Sony’s new console would debut in 2012, giving not only Microsoft but Nintendo also a lead in the next console war. The Xbox 360 has been on the market for 3 years, while the Wii and PS3 are a year younger at only 2 years. It’s more likely the article meant they’d be revealed in 2010 at E3, but that’s still enough to get any gamer like myself excited. The Xbox had a 4 year run, the PS2 is still running after 8 years of service, while the Gamecube had a good 6 year run. I think it’s highly possible for a new Nintendo and Microsoft consoles to be shown off at E3 in 2010, giving them a good year possibly in 2011/2012 to launch it. I remember first seeing the “Revolution” at E3 2005 I think. I was so excited. I grew up in my pre-teen/later teen years watching video game journalism.

Below is a teaser for the “Revolution” back in the days of 2005.

    Wonder what the new Nintendo system will be called. Two in Japaneses is pronounced “Ne” maybe it will be called the “Wii Ne” (sry, but I had to go there!)

    James, jokes about the Wii’s name resembling male anatomy stopped being funny.

    We don’t know about that Jake.

    They’re not that funny. Making fun of the PS3’s inferiority is way funnier.

  7. The James said,

    well…yes ps3 jokes are better.

    But I think the wii ne joke was pretty funny.

    “Its funny because it is true”

    There is nothing wrong with the PS3. XBox360, on the other hand, is the worst of all the consoles.Wii is a gay name by the way.

    I seriously disagree. The PS3 still hasn’t launched home, has lost it’s American CEO, etc. There’s something wrong with all the consoles, but the 360 is definitely not the worst.

    Nor is the PS3.
