Re: Wii's Successor System

Nintendo Co., Ltd. has decided to launch in 2012 a system to succeed Wii, which the company has sold 86.01 million units on a consolidated shipment basis between its launch in 2006 and the end of March 2011.

We will show a playable model of the new system and announce more specifications at the E3 Expo, which will be held June 7-9, 2011, in Los Angeles.

Sales of this new system have not been included in the financial forecasts announced today for the fiscal term ending March 2012.

If this thing is using an RV770 / Radeon 4870, it'll be a graphical beast compared to the current 360/PS3 systems, even if MS/Sony surpass it in 2013/2014.

Even if it doesn't use the RV770 chipset it still better surpass the current consoles since they are 6 years old...

Yeah pretty much. 360/PS3 are 2004-20005 technology. Even if they only use a RV740 which is weaker than the RV770, it'll still surpass current HD consoles.

If these specs are to be believed than N did this purly for one simple reason, to keep the console as cheap as possible to reflect the current state of the economy...

The higher end R7xx GPUs are very powerful and if Nintendo picks a mid-high end part it'll be more powerful than 360/PS3 as I've said in my other posts.

Current economy has nothing to do with it, Nintendo has been doing cheap consoles for ages. (especially in handhelds and later with Wii.)
Modified R7xx and proper CPU would be nice for developers and should be certainly nice for users when compared to ps360.

After said that I should clarify that next generations will spank wiihd in every possible way, but for those we need to wait at least 2 years.

Sticking with 512MB VRAM will keep them well behind the next gen from MS and Sony, 1GB would allow them to at least look like they are in the same generation. RV770 should be enough, but when the next gen consoles are all using high res textures and Wii2 is stuck with current gen console textures the difference in graphics will be immediately noticeable to everyone.
