Whatever Nintendo does has to be revolutionary. Whether it’s the Super Nintendo of old, or its latest console, the Wii – it has to be different. In fact, although you may not like the Wii that much, (I don’t) the console’s changed the game forever, forcing Sony and Microsoft down a route they thought was futile, but now, both Kinect and PS Move are selling millions – thanks to Nintendo.
But the Wii’s lost steam, and analysts have been calling for a new console from the legendary gaming company for months. Will it happen? It’s basically confirmed for an E3 2011 reveal, and as news surface, we’re learning more about the console. We already know it’ll be more powerful than PS3 and Xbox 360, but what we didn’t know is how excited developers who’ve seen it are about the system. I mean, who wouldn’t? The hardware’s spotting an HD screen on its controller. What Nintendo’s forging is “unreal” says one source.
“Publishers are already planning launch titles and it’s all very exciting,” said another source to CVG. “The hardware is even more powerful than current HD consoles and backwards compatible with Wii. The controller will be all-new and has a HD screen on it.”
Nintendo’s commented, saying it doesn’t comment on “rumor and speculation”.
