So he said it right there that the Wii peaked in 2008 and basically it has been in gradual decline since then.
Do you think that Nintendo really does have a lot more Wii games left to show besides Zelda or Kirby? In my opinion this interview is just lip service for everyone to continue with the perception that the Wii is fine and not going anywhere. All sales seem to indicate that the Wii is falling fast, so fast in fact that Nintendo will need to do something very soon to either re-ignite sales or at least announce a completely new system this year at E3.
The Wii has served it's purpose for almost 5 years and it is time for a fresh take on the console side of things again. Third Party developers have next to nothing for the Wii in development for the second half of this year, so what are people going to buy for the Wii his holiday season? There has been advances in the CPU/GPU technology in the last few years and as we've been seeing with the 3DS great graphics are possible for a fraction of the cost of what they used to be. If Nintendo is smart (which I know they are) they already have the next Nintendo home console up and running and are just waiting to unleash it on the unsuspecting public to really shock and awe everyone.
At GDC, Iwata talked about how "making the impossible, possible" was key for making not only games from Nintendo but also hardware. Are they going to make the impossible happen by making a 3D viewing experience possible without glasses and without a 3DTV? This might seem impossible but I wouldn't be surprised if Nintendo found a way just for the fact that they always do in the end.
What is your take on Nintendo's console situation?
