Nintendo Working On Wii Successor

Two weeks ago, Nintendo's global president Satoru Iwata was quoted saying that predetermining a console's lifespan is nonsense and that a new console should be introduced only when the older one can do nothing new.

Today, he admitted that Nintendo is already working on Wii's successor.

Speaking in an interview with the Wall Street Journal Iwata admitted that the hardware team had already begun work, although he wouldn't be drawn on details.

"The hardware team started work on the next thing as soon as they were done with their previous project", Iwata told the Wall Street Journal. "But what they think up doesn't necessarily become a product."

"We only turn something into a product after it's been thoroughly vetted inside the company. We're not at a point where we can give specifics, but of course we're working on it."
