New Nintendo Console to be Announced at E3, Says Multiple Sources



This was bound to happen. With recent reports that Nintendo was slowing down their software lineup, this happening was a no-brainer.

The successor to the Wii will be announced at this year's E3, according to multiple sources.

The story breaking first on gaming news website Game Informer, it has been reported that the new console will boast graphics more powerful than the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360, a far cry from the Wii, which has a graphical power that pales in comparison to its competitors.

But that's not all we're hearing about this new console. It will also be backwards compatible with the Wii, will boast a 1080p resolution, and will feature a completely new controller than that of the Wii. Also rumored is that it will feature a Blu-ray optical disc drive.

Rumors also say that this is Nintendo's way of recapturing the hardcore market. Also rumored is that there will be a pre-announcement about the system sometime this month, as was done in a similar fashion last year for the Nintendo 3DS. The system is said to have a full reveal at E3, and many are saying that it will launch in late 2012.

To help along this rumor, it's been said that Nintendo's been showcasing the new system to 3rd-party publishers, and that said 3rd-party publishers are already at work creating launch titles for the new system.

However, it must be noted that at time of writing, nothing is concrete and everything is up in the air. All of what has been said is strictly rumor, and must be taken as such.

The final word with Nintendo, questioned as to whether or not the speculation is true:

Nintendo does not comment on rumor or speculation. - Nintendo

Hopefully every word of this will prove to be true. Nintendo has certainly made enough money off the Wii and DS to produce one hell of a next-gen console. They say it'll be more powerful than the PS3 and 360, but what about the PS4 and 720? Those will ultimately be it's real competitors. Just a food for thought, though, since graphics don't really matter. And, traditionally, the most powerful console has never ended up in first place. However, watching how the first console to launch in a new gen peforms --and what advantages a head start gave them-- is always an interesting spectacle nonetheless.

speaking of Nintendo, I've heard that Nintendo's been making their own flat-screen TVs to get money for their business, and that they might drop out of the console market and focus its efforts on the handheld market.

Got any sources to back up that claim?

I'm thoroughly interested in your rumor.

Yeah, bad idea, kid. Never listen to a classmate without looking up the info yourself. A classmate when I was 12 told me Nintendo was going to start making software only and no consoles. Of course, this was a load of crap. I didn't believe him in the first place, but obviously, some people will believe anything.
