Nintendo Wii 2 Console Unlikely to Support 3D Technology

by Gustavo on March 30, 2011 · 4 comments · Gaming, News

June will be a big month for Nintendo and Reggie Fils-Aime, CEO of Nintendo of America, has confirmed that they are working on a new home console, the Wii 2. Unfortunately, the new Wii 2 it’s unlikely to support 3D graphics like many had expected. This new announcement will really upset some gamers, specially after the recent release of the Nintendo 3DS and all the 3D televisions hype that has been going on since the end of last year.

Nintendo Wii 2 3D Unlikely
At the moment, and against what other manufacturers think, Reggie Fils-Aime said they still don’t have any plans of a 3D home console.

The reason for this is that people don’t want to wear 3D glasses to play. So until they develop appropriate screens, expect nothing. Also, they will not be putting the system display as they did with their smaller console (3DS). But you never know if Nintendo is saying the truth or perhaps they are only saying it to create confusion between their rivals.

After all, don’t we expect something big every time Nintendo releases a new console?

Great post Gustavo. It is a shame that 3D is now an unlikely feature, you’d expect Nintendo to find some way around this though given the amount of new things they have done in recent years. You should check out this Wii 2 Console site, it has regular news updates about the new console.

Although they said they will “unlikely” do it, I still have my doubts. They may be trying to make it so that its going to be a surprise for everyone. They must have to have something really good to keep customers interested in their console.

You’ve got a point there, that doesn’t actually confirm anything. We can still dream! :D

Satoru Iwata said in reference to 3D: “If you are going to connect Wii U with a home TV capable of displaying 3-D images, technologically, yes, it is going to be possible, but that’s not the area we are focusing on…”. So, it could still be a feature that is added after the launch, just like Sony did with the PS3.
