The vitality sensor is only the beginning. Reggie said something like "hooked to all kinds of sensors" in a recent interview. They would come up with new stuff. You didn't know they would release a balance board or a WM+ or a vitality sensor. And it might not be a peripheral. it might be new hits. Wii music Nintendo thought would sell better, the next idea might. That's what Nintendo does. And they will not release a new console (except perhaps a modified one with addons like HDD, but... I doubt it) before their competitors because they want the Wii to continue to dominate and not "lose" this generation. The truth is that the Wii hasn't lost any momentum. in fact , it only gained momentum which resulted in wii shortage again. Amazon keeps running out of wii's in stock and so do all the retail stores. Nintendo hasn't even began to exploit its franchises - it can announce huge pokemon, kirby, star fox titles... it can release NSMBW 2 and NSMBW 3 easily and then SMG3. It can announce huge new franchises as well... just look at how successful endless ocean is and that's not even a traditional game per se. Not to mention the wii fit phenonmeon, and this is before announcing wii relax and other new peripherals which i know they will announce. I can't see Nintendo releasing a new console before... maybe 2014. Business-wise there's actually no reason to do it. But remember this is only because of the competitors - if sony or microsoft or someone else decides to release a new console before then they will too... but they won't release a new console years before PS4, that will be illogical and self destructive.

As the sun sets over thefield of conflict the dinosaurs disperse, hoping never to set footin this place again.
