Nintendo to exhibit at 2011 CES after lengthy absence

The Consumer Electronics Association has announced that Nintendo will be among the gaming exhibitors at the 2011 International CES. As noted by Engadget, the company will be making its first appearance at the event in 16 years, and will likely be showing off its upcoming 3DS handheld gaming console. Nintendo has been facing increasing competition in the handheld gaming market from smartphone platforms such as Apple’s iOS and Google’s Android, and last month posted its first interim net loss in seven years. Due to the iPod touch and iPhone, the company has noted that Apple is its biggest competitor now, surpassing even Microsoft, with which it has done battle in the television-dependent console game market since the release of the original Xbox.

Nice they are coming out with a new DS unit (the “3DS”).  However, wonder if it is high-time they refresh the Wii, such as giving it true HD capabilities, along with HDMI output.  For all intent and purposes, it is basically an overclocked GameCube with the motion controllers as the only really new innovation.  Would love to see a more powerful Wii 2.
