Nintendo game designer Shigeru Miyamoto has promised that Wii will become "a more comfortable machine" for users over the next few years, seemingly hinting at new channels. The comments originate from a lengthy Q&A session which followed the latest Corporate Management Policy Briefing at the end of October.
Don’t misunderstand that we are contented with the status quo. As you may be aware, there is still much room for improvement. We will make efforts, for example, to improve the Wii Channels so people can use them with more comfort. Wii will be a more comfortable machine to use in 5 years or so, so please stay tuned.
Miyamoto´s comments are unlikely to be related to the elusive last secret, which NOA president Fils-Aime promised for September. But it is interesting to note that Nintendo is thinking ahead.
With the Wii continuing to be a phenomenal success, the only criticism that is often heard is that Wii might not be able to hold its own against its competitors in a few years from now, when the disparity in graphical output is set to increase significantly. I am intrigued to find out what Miyamoto is hinting at here.
EDIT As far as my brief note about an upcoming multiplatform title is concerned, I am afraid that my original source may have been misinformed. That is why I have withdrawn the paragraph until I can make sure my information is accurate.
