Considering Nintendo churning out a portable 3D console, one would expect Nintendo to bring the 3D functionality to Wii too. Good thing is they’re already contemplating it, according to Nintendo’s CEO Satoru Iwata.
In an interview with Nihon Keizai Shimbun, Iwata dropped hints that the next-gen Wii could support 3D provided 3D television market sees a steady rise.
“If you display a 3D image, the image quality becomes extremely bad, so we’d probably do it with the next system. We’re thinking that the timing should be once the 3D television adoption rates crosses the 30% mark. We’re looking at the adoption trends.”
Sony is already propagating PS3’s 3D capabilities while Microsoft’s Xbox 360 is capable of supporting 3D but is wary like Nintendo about adoption rates.
