    New Nintendo console coming next year

    Should make for an interesting E3.

    Nintendo Co. (7974), the Japanese video-game company struggling to win over consumers with its latest generation of consoles, plans to expand in emerging markets with new devices starting next year.

    The Kyoto-based company will develop completely new game machines for emerging markets rather than sell cheaper versions of existing devices such as the Wii U, President Satoru Iwata said in an interview today. Nintendo is also planning to boost the use of characters such as Mario by offering figurines that will allow the transfer of game information between devices through near field communications.

    Nintendo has resisted making its games available on smartphones because it doesn’t see a sustainable way to make money in a business with such boom-and-bust cycles, said Iwata, who has been president since 2002. Making products specifically for emerging markets is a change for the company, which until now has sold the same products globally.

    “We want to make new things, with new thinking rather than a cheaper version of what we currently have,” Iwata said in Tokyo today. “The product and price balance must be made from scratch.”

    China recently lifted a 13-year ban on selling video-game consoles, and Microsoft Corp. said it will introduce the Xbox One there in September. China’s video-game industry will generate about $10 billion in sales next year, according to PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP. Nintendo is studying regulations regarding entry into China, Iwata said yesterday.

    Who knows what Iwata is talking about. I don't think he does.

    I wait for the day Nintendo makes a home console as good as their handhelds.

    I hope this is some sort of misunderstanding or confusion, otherwise Nintendo really has gone full retard.

    Nintendo already confirmed that they aren't revealing new hardware at E3.

    I wouldn't put money on any new hardware being announced this year; though next year is a whole different story

    This.

    If anything it'll be a Wii U price drop or bigger HDD version.

    They aren't due a new handheld for another 2 years at least either.

    I got a story. I remember some one here pointing at the same thing. I was recommending some one from the UK to get a Wii U...she told me she has it. Apparently, it was the Wii. Not the Wii U.

    Second, I can't believe they're not having software presentations for E3. If they're going to release Zelda U. This is the right time to splash it.

    The Wii U is dead and buried and with it their mainstream console business. Get out of the big boys arena and start licensing the Ninty franchise games for the PlayStation and Xbox consoles! They would make a killing.

    If HD DVD won the format war I could see some people making a similar mistake.

    yup. they just can't make a good console anymore. and by that, i mean something that their games deserve. their games could do a lot better multiplat. not like they are resource heavy.

    They need to use NFC or RFID in a new machine which is a new DS system or at least a new handheld that clicks into a home dock.
    Their on the go library should merge into their home library as just one in the same.

    Let all of their lifestyle devices for health and fitness talk to the same dock.

    If they want to release a cheap ChiiU go ahead and do that too.
    But, since they do mobile best, they should leverage that side.

    Never going to happen as the loses are already above their heads on the Wii U. I truly believe this will be the last home console for Nintendo, and their primary focus will be on the handheld industry which they dominate. Also if they licensed their games for the PS brand they would make a fortune.

    9 years and counting!

    I await the day when they inevitably go third party developer, be it next year or a decade from now.

    That was more 20 years ago. It's unfortunate how the public can be so blind with today's social networks and internet news. How hard could it be to get people's attention.

    Changes are different.
    UWii would have created less confusion than WiiU
    NESS would have created more confusion than SNES.

    They should just release another console, but this time let it compete with the PS4 and Xbox One. Make it have competitive graphic power, have plenty of 3rd party support, and come up with some new 1st party franchises. If Nintendo did that, they'd make profit.

    With the amount of money, time, and energy already placed into the Wii U I highly doubt that would be a viable option. Nintendo does not have as deep of pockets as their main competitors.

    Wasn't everyone on the internet predicting Wii u will be house of Mario hd, Zelda hd and Kirby hd? They didn't suprised us there. They didn't delivered what gamers wanted, hence they are so full of themselves or they don't know what the west want from a console. Either way I don't think they changed their view for the market so I don't expect them to make the right calls.

    just sit back and wait too see what actually happens. A new console would be a welcome... But with new mario games coming out on the Wii U and a new Zelda game..

    I believe they will hold off until sells pick up... If not then they have to rethink the market percentage

    A new Zelda game maximizing the abilities of the Wii U would move some serious numbers for Nintendo. However, I am sure they won't listen to what the fans want and release yet another overly "cartoonish" version of Link.
