“I do not believe that Wii 3D will be our next step. One reason Wii is indeed so successful is because most people do not have any HDTV equipment and know how to appreciate what the Wii offers.
“The Nintendo 3DS is possible because it is a portable console and it works without 3D glasses. For the living room, consumers would need a 3D TV and it will take some time before enough households have 3D TVs.”
“Many people still have a lot of fun with the Wii, there are still many good games out for it. But we think about a successor once a console is launched. We monitor the market closely. When the time comes, we will announce a successor. But that will not be anytime soon.”
