PSXE Poll Update: Nintendo Will Release Another Console

The Wii U isn't doing so hot and many are wondering what Nintendo's next move is...

Will they ditch the console business altogether and just stick with handhelds? Will they launch a new console that effectively competes with the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One? Will they go third-party? Will the Wii U stage a comeback?

According to our readers, it's Option B: Nintendo will release a new system. However, it's very interesting that a lot of people said Nintendo would bow out of the console business, and nearly as many said it's "time to go third-party." Right now, we have no idea what the company plans to do; all we know is that at last count, the Wii U had only sold around 4 million units worldwide. It's probably a little higher than that now, but don't forget that the PS4 is around 6.3 million already.

This week, it's simple: inFamous: Second Son or Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster? Both? Neither? Thing is, it's tough to say no to either, especially if you're a long-time PlayStation follower.

If only this were real Ninty would be toast:

Obviously I'm getting inFamous AND FFX, but those are gonna take all the starch out of my wallet for awhile so I'll hafta get cozy and save for Enemy Within, Xillia 2, and Persona 5.

Although I'm not sure if that's what the Dreamcast 2 will actually wind up looking like, I have no doubts that a new Dreamcast Will be coming out.

More.....(it starts off real slow, but the alleged evidence builds up about 1/3 through the vid)

BTW, I have one of those consoles pictured in this video, it's that "Zone 40" and I can tell you straight up that it's nothing like the DC(it's a super cheap $79 imitator that plays old retro-styled games using WII-copied remotes).

World, did you order the special edition of Final Fantasy? They had the same artbook packaging available that Tomb Raider had.

We only get a tiny artbook here in the UK - about the size of a normal PS3 case... Normally I'd be jealous but I already have something much better. Back when the games were released there were some lovely Square artbook released by Digi-Cube called 'The Visual Arts Collection' As far as I know there are 6 of them for FF9, FF10, FF10-2, Kingdom Hearts, The Bouncer & Unlimited Saga. I already own a few of these and have shown them on a forum I vist here:

http://www.playstationcollecting.com/forum/messageview.cfm?catid=68&threadid=113924

So I am content with the little artbook, besides I got this edition of the game for less than half the retail price of a normal PS3 release :)

I got whichever one you are upgraded to for pre-ordering at the normal cost.

@ Vivi_Gamer

That's the same one we get unless you order the Collector's Edition. I'm cool with the tiny one.

It's alright... but I never got back to look at these tiny A5 artbooks. A4 ones are the perfect size. We also don't get the Blu-ray soundtrack but from what I hear that might be a good thing. I listened to some samples online and the first few notes of 'Tidus' Theme' are out of tune breaking the rhythm completely.

I'm horrendously jealous about Lighting Returns special edition getting an artbook. I'm trying to get that online but it goes for such stupid prices...

I'm getting inFamous and Final Fantasy X HD. I wanted to pick up Metal Gear Solid 5 as well, but I didn't realize all three games were coming out this week. I'll get it next week or shortly thereafter.

Not owning a PS4 is a very good reason to get FFX/X-2 for me. Moreover, another inFamous title is still not enough to persuade me to step into next gen just yet. I'm sure, just like the first two, that I will enjoy it; but in due time. I am all for more next gen titles, but not even anything on the PS3 stacks up to the wealth of excellence that saw the PSone and 2 - at least not for me.

C'mon, you're talking to a guy that used "Eyes On Me" (FFVIII) as his wedding processional. (And yes, my wife even agreed.) ((More because Nobuo Uematsu is amazing and less because she actually liked the game itself.))

of course ninty will bring out a new console, the wii made them a freaking shipload of cash so they will be giving this at least 1 more shot.
some people tend to forget this is the FIRST time ninty has turned a FY loss in the companies HISTORY!
most companies see profit, they see loss, they see disasters, they see highs.
ninty hasnt, they have been profitable all the way up to the wiiu, so its pretty ignorant and short sighted to run around like a headless chook oh no there going to leave the industry.
if $ony can sustain FY losses ever since the ps3 released practically, and having their credit rating decreased to JUNK, and still continue, than i think a company who literally created our industry, and has been since the dark ages, can sustain one tiny little blip in the big picture!

as for infamous or a HD remake, thats not really a fair contest here now is it?
im going with neither though, always HATED turn based gameplay it just feels so cheap and coincidental, and im playing a game which means i want to be in control!
not tell the thing what to do and watch it play it out for me.
and second son, well, let me put it this way.
i have already watched 3 of my most favorite new IPs of last gen be dragged through the mud, humiliated and barely recognisable!
and i had to do a 4th with infamous 2, so i think im going to sit this one out and save myself the frustration and heartache!
after all id like to have at least one new IP from last gen still in my heart, no matter how much damage 2 did to it!

though, it would be nice, just for once, when a publisher wants to try a new idea, they actually create a new IP and not slap the name of a well known famous one onto it just because they know it will sell much better!
imagine how much better, and how much different more things, imagine how much assassins creed could of evolved and improved, innovated, if all the time was not wasted on that pirates crap!?
last time i checked the names ASSASSINS creed, not PIRATES creed!

I own a Wii-U... I have to admit I have not being playing it much as of late due to being to busy with my PS3. However, as soon as the 2nd Xenoblade game comes out... it will all be worthwhile.

In 2012 we had a serious gaming drought on the PS3, so I resorted in getting a Wii & in doing so I got to play some wonderful games but Xenoblade: Chronicles was just something else. It was simply everything I could ever hope for in a JRPG. A vast world to explore, a story which you can progress at your own pace, engaging characters and a thrilling battle system - It was just a joy from start to finish and my greatest gaming experience this gen by far.

So I am still hopeful for the Wii-U. However, if Xenoblade 2 was suddenly announced for the PS4... Yes I would sell the console in a heartbeat and go back to my old Wii for games like The Last Story & Pandora's Tower. The problem is Nintendo's recent marketing strategy is just appalling, these seasonal update videos simply aren't efficient in an online market - one that is always active. Other than Xenoblade there is not much that the Wii-U has to grip me, Though I did enjoy Zelda Wind Waker in HD.

As for the choice between InFamous and Final Fantasy X/X-2 - No contest! I have Final Fantasy pre-ordered and intend to tuck into it straight after Ground Zeroes.

Nintendo is desperate, so OF COURSE they will release another console. It will be underpowered compared to the competition and only have Nintendo-made games, but unless they are near bankruptcy, they won't give up the ghost.

"It will be underpowered compared to the competition"

Releasing a weaker system would defeat the purpose of releasing a new console.

If anything, the new console has to be on equal footing in terms of power with the other next gen consoles. As to guarantee multiplatform games appearing on the system.

I thought the Wii U was over 5 million. Regardless, I also think they'll give it one more shot. They are making bank with the DS line, so they should be able to afford to. Their paycuts showed dedication to continue in the business, so I doubt they will fold easily.

If they are ever to release another system, it better be on Par with PS4 and Xbone, otherwise, there wouldn't be a point. It would also have to be smartly priced. Well.... it doesn't look good and it's too late at this point now that I think about it. The PS4/Xbone momentum is too hot to interrupt right now.

The Wii U has sold over 5 million units. But Ben is probably basing his numbers on how many units Nintendo sold up to September 2013. Which is were the under 4 million units number comes from.

The Wii U sold at least a million units between Sept. 2013 and the X-mas season. So they're over the 5 million mark by now.

I bought a Wii U this month. I've been wanting one since launch, but my economic situation never let me press start to begin playing. Now that i have it, I am very happy! I suspect more will sell gradually... And then the next Zelda, or the next Xenoblade will come out, and the console will look FAR PRETTIER!
