Gamers are ready for the next generation of consoles, says Iwata

Reggie presents the Wii U

Iwata thinks that gamers are ready for the next generation of home consoles to start. He sees the declining sales of all three current systems as a sign that the market is ready for something new.

However, not just the Wii, but the overall performance of home consoles in December was lower than the previous year, and I think that the market is now waiting for a new proposal for home consoles.

And I think he’s right. With Microsoft and Sony both keeping their focus on milking every last dollar out of the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, Nintendo have the chance to gain a huge competitive advantage in the next generation by being the ones to kick it off.

    I am sure most people have no idea of the 8th generation home consoles potential, and shamelessly underestimate the technical (and hence graphical) leap.
    I honestly already see the Xbox360 and PS3 as consoles of the past.
