Nintendo’s Wii 2 – 3D or not 3D?

The 3DS smashed day one sales figures for a portable console, but Nintendo isn’t stopping there

With the hubbub of the 3DS launch behind it, Nintendo has only to sit back, tot up the sales figures from its new 3D handheld and count the cash. Right? Wrong – from the sounds of things, Ninty’s next-gen Wii won’t get the 3D treatment.

In an interview with CNN, Hideki Konno, one of the company’s head console boffins, said Nintendo wasn’t interested in big-screen 3D until it glasses-free 3DTVs became the norm. So, what will we see? HD? Will Nintendo stay with motion control? Or will it invent the next big thing in gaming? Again?
