Nintendo To Introduce A New Console At E3 2014

Nintendo To Introduce A New Console At E3 2014

IGN Editors are saying that they’ve heard from “multiple sources” that Nintendo will be unveiling a new console at E3 this year.

“We’ve heard rumors that Nintendo might be showing hardware at E3,” IGN editor Jose Otero said on the latest episode of Nintendo Voice Chat.

“They’re absolutely going to show new hardware this year,” the outlet’s co-founder, Peer Schneider added. “No doubt in my mind that something… ‘Cause I’ve heard from multiple people now. I’ve heard from someone who used to be at Nintendo, I’ve heard it from somebody on the third-party front.”

I absolutely think that Nintendo should introduce new hardware at E3 while continue to softly support Wii U, because the console as performed abysmally for the company, with sales of PS4, a console that was launched over a full year later, already outpacing Wii U in sales.

But that’s me… What about you?

Thanks, GamerRevolution.

    Whatever they unveil, I seriously hope it won’t hit shelves for at least 2 or 3 more years. I bought a WiiU last Christmas, partly because it had/will have some great games in its library, and also partly to just help out the Big N. If they release a console just to match the hardware of the PS4/XboxOne in 2015, I will definitely NOT invest in it. The WiiU has enough potential as it is, Nintendo just needs to market it better and make games that people won’t brush off as being meant only for “little kids”.

    I agree with you to a certain extent, bro. I think the Wii U is a great machine, but NIntendo’s foresight was weak, and because of it, did not imagine a PS4 and new Xbox that’d be more powerful than Wii U, or did not think that developers would see a problem with the weaker hardware. The console also has a messaging problem, in that consumers can’t properly discern it from the Wii. You’re right, if there’s new hardware, it needs to be backward compatible and boast other unique and great features, not just being more powerful than PS4 and Xbox One. If Nintendo can nail all these things, we may be in for a treat.
