    I got this message, i don’t do gaming or stuff on the iphone, i am over 70,

    do like movies, tv, also my children are grown and I’m strictly an apple, mac person, late in life.

    So i don’t know what your idea is, perhaps to copy apples idea, and make a set top box, Yes I may be interested in that. not real happy with comcast. apple is taking for ever.

    I like sports like nfl, tennis, basketball nascar, but can’t affort or won’t pay the high prices. I live in a 320 unit condo we are married to comcast. i don’t like that
    paying for to much junk.

    With Nintendo announcing Nintendo TVii, the Wii U is no longer just for gaming. It can now act as a “hub” for pretty much anything you want to watch on live TV, Netflix, Hulu Plus or Amazon. Plus, if you’ve got grandkids they might like to come over to play games on the Wii U ;)

    Although the Wii U was announced, it has yet to be rleaesed. Anyways, to answer your question: Yes, there will be Wii games made post console release.There is no definite answer as to how long it will continue, but production of past generation consoles usually continues for a few years after the next console is rleaesed. The Nintendo Gamecube, the last generation home console from Nintendo, continued to have games developed for it until 2008, which was 2 years after the Wii’s release. The Wii could continue being a secondary console, as Sony has done with their PlayStation 2 and PlayStation 3 consoles, however it’s up to Nintendo. If you would like a speculated answer, then i would guess that game production would end in 2015 at the latest for Wii games. It may be sooner considering the lack of good titles rleaesed for the system, however, this is just a guess. I could be right, wrong or be completely wrong though. Nonetheless, i hope this answers your question,~Barolb
