I think that Nintendo needs to ditch the idea that people want to keep buying the same games everytime a new console comes out. I shouldn't have to keep repurchasing Super Mario Bros. 3 with every new console iteration.

I would like to see them move to some sort of unified handheld/console that utilizes a "Steam-like" account system. One of the major benefits to PC gaming is that I don't have to buy a game more than once. I think if Nintendo did this with their next console, then everyone would be interested in buying it.

I would love to see their next console evolve the idea of the tablet controller. The whole console would be the tablet. It could come in various screen sizes (10", 8", and 6"). The hardware would be indentical across all of them. you would be able to use all of the controllers from the Wii and the Wii U.

Since all of the hardware would be in the tablet controller, you would be able to take it anywhere; this would satisfy the Nintendo fans that want a handheld. If you wanted to use it with your television you could either sync it wirelessly, or connect it directly via HDMI. For local multiplayer you could sync all of the controllers that you can sync with the Wii U and Wii. I think that controllers have reached a point where there isn't much more innovating that needs to be done, so I don't see the point in wasting resources in that area.

I definitely do not think that this idea is very feasible right now, as the hardware would be too expensive, and the battery life would suffer for the power required. I do think that by the time that Nintendo is ready to put out a new console this will be a very viable option, as the CPU power consumption to processing power ratio is advancing at a considerable rate. If you look at the newer Intel Atom processors, they are starting to become fairly powerful and they use very little power.

Sorry for the long post. I have been a Nintendo fan since the NES and would love to see them continue to put out excellent games for years to come.
