Iwata finds no "significant reason" to make a Wii HD
http://img.qj.net/uploads/articles_m...nth.jpg?118945Satoru Iwata sat down with Venture Beat for a very exhaustive interview post-E3, and tackling the hard-hitting issues brought about by the new revelations from the industry's conferences. From the new motion-controls race to the iPhone "competition", to cutting prices, Iwata answers them all. What rose above as intriguing, however, is his belief that there is no "significant reason" to make a Wii HD.
If we have an opportunity to make a new console, it will probably support HD because it is now common throughout the world. However, as far as the Wii is concerned, we have not found a significant reason to make it HD-compatible at this time. What is the significant meaning to users? I don't think we should do it unless we find that reason. If we decide for other reasons to make new hardware, then HD is one of the things we would naturally add.
