Nintendo Wii 2 Will not be 3D

We are hearing reports today that the next generation Nintendo Wii console will not offer 3D gaming like previously thought.

The reason for this is that not enough people have 3D TV’s in their home which makes it a less viable idea. Also we hear that a successor to the Wii is not coming any time soon which could indicate we wont see it for at least another couple of years. We also have yet to hear of a PS4 or next gen Xbox 360 2 (or 720 as some refer to it as).

Although Nintendo do say it will be some time before a Wii 2 arrives, they said that it will arrive eventually at some point.

Back last month Nintendo, or someone at Nintendo had made a comment that the Wii would not get an update to 3D but the Wii 2 could be 3D although at the time they specifically mentioned they would look for a 30% adoption rate for 3D TV’s before it became viable. Perhaps today’s statement is just echoing what has been said already in some ways.

“If you display a 3D image, the image quality becomes extremely bad, so we’d probably do it with the next system…We’re thinking that the timing should be once the 3D television adoption rates crosses the 30% mark. We’re looking at the adoption trends.”
