But Nintendo has lost alot of ground since then in the Console business due to the release of Sony PlayStation Move and Microsoft XBOX Kinect Devices and other mobile platforms.

Wii was the first and only Console of the current generation that provided motion controlled gameplay that was the major reason which made it a household Gaming console in the recent past.

Nintendo’s chief executive, Satoru Iwata suggested that his company was preparing a fresh innovation and said:

“It will offer a new way of playing games within the home.”
