Nintendo working on a new home console, may include 3D tech

We recently got a chance to sit down with Nintendo UK’s Head of Communications, Rob Saunders, and we talked about a lot of things. In our interview, he told us that Nintendo have been working on a home console for a long time now, and that it may include 3D technology.

When we asked Rob if after the positive reactions the 3DS’ 3D technology has gotten, they will be including 3D in their future consoles, he replied with a chuckle, “It’s a good question. The honest answer is that if I told you I’d have to kill you.”

“We’ve had 3D running on past consoles for a number of years and we have had 3D running on the original DS, the Gamecube and the Wii. That’s no secret, we said that at E3 last year, but now it feels like the right time to bring 3D to the market,” he continued. “So “never say never”; we’re always working on new consoles and new applications, things like that.”

But it was after this when he told us that Nintendo had started work on their new home console already-

“We’re always very keen at Nintendo, we always start work on the next home console as soon as the previous one’s released. So we are working on something and we’re always looking at new ideas and new developments, so that work is underway.”

Hoewever, he could not give us any details. “As to what it pertains to and what it is… Even I don’t know!”

Here’s the full interview.

    sounds good. as long as they include some beefed up hardware and an actual decent sized hard drive….oh and have some hardcore games, instead of kiddy / mini games, i might be in for one

      Well the Wii always had some hardcore games. I am interested in observing the impact of Wii 2 (or whatever it will be called) on the gaming market. Will the next console have the same effect on the market? That will be interesting to see.

      it had very few hardcore games and there was always something better on the ps3 or 360 to buy. the only time my wii is turned on (ha) is when the family is over or for wii fit/ea sports active.

    my predictions is its going to be a wii 2 maybe not that title but based off it.. and just having 3d doesnt make a system good i rather not play in 3D .. But 3D is the best thing today to sell lol i dnt get it .. hopefully its more HD to this worthy of a purchase bc i did love nintendo at one point..

    Everybody and their grandmothers know that their next console WILL include 3D, lol. It may not have all bells and whistles like current consoles but it’s going to need more than just what it offers now besides the price point to continue dominating the way its been doing. NOTE: I had no idea that the gamecube had 3d capabilities???? and the DS??? Aqua Out!!!

    • dh4645

      any game or console can be 3D if you use the red and blue cardboard glasses. hah

      DH OUTIFIED!

    this whole 3d tech in not important now. all 3d tv’s are out of reach and too expensive, maybe in the next 3-4 years but not now.
