PostSubject: Nintendo CEO: NX Won't Be 'Next Version of Wii or Wii U'   Thu Dec 03, 2015 6:40 pm

Nintendo isn't looking to create "the next version of Wii or Wii U" with NX, according to president and CEO Tatsumi Kimishima. Instead, the company wants its next platform to offer something completely new.

"As far as NX goes, I’ve said it’s different and obviously a new experience," Kimishima told TIME.

The Nintendo exec then spoke to the company's troublesome transition between Wii and Wii U, noting "how difficult it is to explain to the consumer base what is different and new about the new hardware. It’s difficult to convince them to switch from their current platform to the next platform."

Bearing that in mind, the company is taking a completely new approach with NX, aiming to offer something that is entirely different from its prior hardware. "I can assure you we’re not building the next version of Wii or Wii U," Kimishima added. "It’s something unique and different. It’s something where we have to move away from those platforms in order to make it something that will appeal to our consumer base."

Earlier this year, Nintendo said it aims to surprise players with NX and "change each person's video gaming life."

While Nintendo's new platform remains shrouded in mystery, it doesn't look like we have much longer to wait to learn more, as reports suggest the company plans to ship 20 million NX units by the end of 2016.

It was "difficult to explain" because a wide range of people who bought the Wii were only casual gamers anyway. So when Nintendo released the Wii U, those people didn't have a damn clue if it was some sort of extension of the Wii or a new thing entirely, so the moment that casual market had to think and/or research what it was, they left it behind entirely.

They should have called is Wii 2. Not saying that suddenly would make it sell way better, but it would have stopped that initial confusion.

But I hope the new NX isn't something radical and revolutionary for the sake of it. I honestly don't think the Wii U has had a long enough cycle, either. I know they need sales, but next year already? Neutral

Well they're missing out on Call of Duty and all the other games people buy now. They gotta do something different.
