For Nintendo, Wii 2′s A Long Way Off

Just in case your hopes were still high for a Wii 2 showing in the near future, Nintendo’s Fils-Aime wants you to forget about the idea altogether because they’re just “not there yet”.

“When the software developer comes forward with an idea that can’t be executed on the current platform, that’s when we start thinking seriously about the next system.

We’re not there yet, from a Wii perspective,” Fils told Forbes.

The Nintendo exec also made clear that they had no plans to reveal a Wii HD either, stating “that [WiiHD] by itself will not create a brand new experience.”

“So when people talk about high definition for the Wii console our feedback is that that by itself will not create a brand new experience.

Therefore, we’re not interested. What we have to push for are groundbreaking new experiences. Technology has to enable it, not to be a means all by itself.”

You read that? Good, now let it rest.
