Nintendo Wii: Miyamoto Talks About High Definition Gaming


Whilst many people were disappointed with Nintendo’s decision to opt out of high definition for the Wii, Miyamoto it seems hasn’t ruled it out for future iterations of Nintendo’s home consoles.

“I don’t think there’s anything wrong with pretty graphics, and if I’m a consumer that has an HDTV, I’d want to be able to play my games with nice graphics too. And I think as we’ve seen the penetration rates for HDTV increase, we’re going to see video games and Nintendo’s games move along in step with the progression of technology,” said Miyamoto.

“But what I don’t think is necessarily true is that the graphics itself is something that’s going to make the gameplay experience better. So we’re still going to focus on the gameplay, but we’ll take advantage of the technology as it comes out.”



  1. I agree that graphics ain’t the most important thing in video games. It is the gameplay that counts. I’ll definately get a HD Nintendo console though.

  2. I don’t care if the next Nintendo system will have HD graphics….still never really liked the games they put out, and the lack of 3rd party support.

    I’ll stick with my PS Triple and XBox 360.

  3. I agree with everything Miyamoto said but were are the games with the good gameplay on Nintendo? Up till now at the end of 2009 I still have nothing to play except Brawl. If they could fix the online and make it lag free or at least playable I would really appreciate that very much.

  4. Let me correct my self. I only meant Nintendo Wii has no games and nothing else. Everything Nintendo put out has games for it except Nintendo Wii. I would like to see a Donkey Kong 64 sequel for Wii and a Pokemon game with full 3D roam and a story as high production as a Final Fantasy game. I think Pokemon need a new face lift right about now because its becoming like the never ending
    Madden series. I’m just explaining why I never by Pokemon games anymore.
