I'm actually kind of annoyed to hear rumors of a new system coming out. I guess it's not much of a surprise, since consoles generally last about 5 or so years, but every time some new system gets announced, I never look forward to the idea of having to shell out hundreds of dollars just to be able to keep up with the most modern games. And since Nintendo's trend lately is to make each console more expensive than the last, I wouldn't be surprised if this new console cost more than US $300.
I don't understand why they're even doing this (if they are). The Wii seems immensely successful, more so than the NES (which was previously Nintendo's most successful system), so why would they pull the plug now? Unless if there are lots of awesome games for this new system, I'll pass on it for a while.
Also, as an aside, the graphics aren't important to me. I care about the gameplay more. I don't even get impressed by graphics much anymore in any case, partly because games in general don't really take full advantage of it these days, using solid, overly shiny colors for everything, and just lacking detail overall.
Oh well, I guess I should hope for the best.
