What's the next Nintendo system going to look like?

The Nintendo Wii is obviously incredibly successful. But that doesn't mean Nintendo is resting on its laurels and not planning for the future! Oh, no! Satoru Iwata, president of Nintendo, recently said that “The hardware team started work on the next thing as soon as they were done with their previous project, but what they think up doesn't necessarily become a product.” And of course, that set everyone into a frenzy.

What's the next Wii going to look like? We obviously have no idea, but I can say with some certainty that it won't look like the above concept rendering. As neat as it would be to have a game system that reads your brainwaves, Nintendo is about simplicity, and this is just not simple. Not to mention the fact that technology like this is still rudimentary at best and not cheap. Let's just wait and see what they come up with, OK?
