It has recently trembled across the Internet, the news of no 3D Wii coming anytime soon, or ever. This spoken by Nintendo’s ‘Godfather’ Shigeru Miyamoto as he believes that too few consumers will have the hardware setups necessary for 3D gaming. This sounds a lot like the reasoning for not going HD with their current Wii as they assumed most consumers would not purchase a new TV, it seems they were a little wrong that time. Maybe they have some inside information into this one, and I personally do think it unlikely that 3D sets will take off a well as the HDTV era. Nevertheless Nintendo is staying back and waiting for the future come to them before they bring it to us.
Now whether this means they have no plans for a new console at all or just for one that is 3D enabled should be something to consider. I have had my fingers crossed for the Wii HD since it was whispered around the gaming forums quite some time ago. 480p just doesn’t cut it for me anymore.
On the flip side Majesco has announced a 3D shooter for the Wii and it is to be the first of its kind for the console. It was planned to be released this summer, but there was no word of it at E3, so this is yet to be seen. Attack of the Movies 3D is to come with 4 pairs of 3D glasses which could likely be the red-blue seteroscopic ones.
