combining this information from AMD, it seems wii U2 comes in 2 years and at 2015 E3, we may have a glimpse
message from AMD
The design wins are interesting because the funding, the R&D dollars for customizing the parts for the products to our customers is precisely pre-funded by the customer and like I said the workload is started and we are spending the money and the resources and the work to go ahead and design the parts to be introduced sometime in 2016.
We didn’t say at which space it is in. I’m not going to give too much detail. I’ll say that one is x86 and one is ARM, and atleast one will be on gaming, right. But that’s about as much as you going to get out me today, because the customers from the standpoint to be fair to them. It is their product. They launch it. They announce it and then just like the game console or the parts you find out that its AMD’s APU that’s been used in those products.
2 + years have pass and wii U is 8m its not because of the game quality wii U have, its because 3rd devs conspired against wii U from the start. Thats what I believe. What nitenendo can do in solo mode? The other ones, even with so much rant from real users, sold 10-15m in a year because devs making games for them. So if we consider the above statement as a nintendo console, its 4 years exact from wii U release date and 4 years is the minimum for nintendo to bring a new console. I do believe that wii U will not stop having support from Nitnendo, because wii U is the last console with backwards features. And they will keep that up also, along with their new product.
but am not happy with amd cpus... lol I would preffer nintendo to stick with IBM. Allready crackers made/working for xbox 1 emmulators lol.... while they still trying for the 360 which is IBM.
edit: I made a search to check if there is any emulator for x1 (emulates the x1 games in any INTEL PC) and there is 1 actually working! So you dont have to buy x1 if you know u can emulate its games in a cheap I3 PC (even if the x1 cpu is amd, the emulator runs in INTEL pc). My point is, choosing x86 platform will totally kill consoles.
