While the PS3 is raving upon their new 3D enabled equipment and technology, Nintendo Wii to stay silent for this update even for the upcoming years. The reason is because Nintendo want to ‘Sync-up’ with the market, because there is a study saying that the percentage of 3D TV users will reach 30% in the next 4 years. So probably Nintendo will wait for another 3 or 4 years to release their 3D-enabled console before they see this market as viable market to jump in.
“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.”
However, the next update of Nintendo Wii 2 might have already supported HD and 3D. 3D might become an optional firmware update but HD 1080p support is a must have feature for the next-gen Wii 2 console. For now, Nintendo Wii will stay close to their first Wii and keep adding more exclusive game titles to leverage their sales.
