So, what do you think about it? I know backwards with the Wii U will be lost in case the new console use the x86 architecture, but what about future consoles?With x86 is not like its a closed PC console? With PC's you don't have problems with backwards compatibility, so,the consoles can't follow the pattern? I'm really curious about, so if anyone here knows an answer , it will be good. Thanks
x86 and Backwards compatibility (Next Nintendo console)

I think we just had this argument. That being said, I do believe Nintendo will stick with their PPC fork for the indefinite future. Nintendo does not acknowledge any limitations compared to a pure x86 system, and I believe they will simply refine the Wii U's PPC setup and base all future consoles on it. Nintendo really does their own thing, so being more compatible with the other systems is meaningless to them (and may be considered a detriment as it simplifies emulation and running pirated ROMs on other consoles and PCs).
