    Ding ding – Round 1 – I now prounounce E3 officially open!!!

    For all I’m not a Nintendo Fan and dont think this system will bring what it needs to make me a mainstream gamer a fan and purchases it – I still love a good hardware reveal (GEEK!)

    So still looking forward to seeing it although I think my next gaming hadware will NGP.

  2. SplatteredHouse

    I thought they might let speculation continue, but to come right out and just confirm it like this. There may be something big on the way, from Nintendo!
    All this talk of touchscreen controllers causes my memory to head back to Dreamcast’s VMU. From a financial standpoint, is it viable to have a touchscreen of that sort of scale on every controller? I don’t think there will be a wimote like control scheme, primarily at least to control whatever they do show at E3.

    #2 4 years ago
  3. Dimaco

    From the pic (if it’s to be thought anywhere near truth), they look like traditional controllers.. touchscreen you say?
    Wondering how much they will be, then… Wiimote itself wasn’ t exactly cheap, and it had no screen!
    I believe Nintendo has a whole lot to lose in next-gen hardware: it might be a hard task to match Wii’s success… just like 3DS vs DS… interesting times these are!

    … just thinking about it… it makes little sense having a touchscreen controller in a home console, or does it? I mean, I’d rather watch the action on my big LED display, instead!

    I hope they use some imaginations when it comes to naming their new console, unlike the previous ones.
    Otherwise, we will either end up with “Wii Wii” or “Super Wii” for the name.

    I prefered the Wii when it was known as Revolution. I guess you get used to it – I mean the Wii doesnt sound as stupid as it did when it was announced.

    So yeah, just like with Twilight Princess, you can bet Skyward Swords going to have a launch port.

    I honestly dont think i’ll bother with it this time, not unless some really awesome games get announced at E3, and Nintendos usual fanfare of rehashed stuff isnt ‘awesome’ in my book.

    #8 4 years ago
  9. kingofscotland

    Is it because its bank holiday or are people just not that bothered – I mean here we have official confirmation of a *ahem* ‘Next Generation Console’ getting a reveal in 2 months and no one seems to be biting????

    As I’ve said before I’m not a big Nintedo fan (I bought my wife and daughter a DS and sometimes play mario, but thats it)

    But none the less its still a console launch – how good/or not will really determine when Sony And Microsoft will launch their new console.

    If it succeeds and sells the numbers that Wii did at launch then Sony & M$ would be forced to reveal next year before losing too much ground – thats the bit I’m excited about, right now its a game of poker – so will Sony And M$ be forced to show their hands earlier???? Hmmmm – only time will tell.

    i’ve learned my lesson from the wii at least (and psp actually aswell). Never buy a system based on potential… it can seriously backfire on you. The wii for me only has a couple good games nothing worth owning a console over so i did seriously regret buying one. This is why i am taking a more hands off approach with wanting a 3DS, NGP and now probably this console. The last couple of years my game purchasing habits have changed dramatically (thanks lovefilm and steam =D)

    Stating the obvious? Yes but i just felt like sharing :P

    This is great news two new hardwares on this e3 will means that it will be a great show, now lets see if the rumour about GTAV on this new nintendo platform holds true, i hope, and if it is an easy to develope console like it is rumour also, will be meaning great things for nintendo with is next console, that and the capacity to run 1080p for real.
    P.S if sony and microsoft now jump with their consoles will make the best e3 ever…

    #17 4 years ago
  18. SOMI

    I doubt wether this will be in HD or 1080, it will be still outdated come 2012, they will have only caught up with 2006 tech. I imagine it will be 1.5 times more powerful than Wii.

    Doesnt this mean that sony and MS will have to show their hands early on their new consoles when they obviously don’t want any right now?

    #18 you just have to take a look at the tech specs that had been leaked, i think is pretty capable of handling true 1080p, and other key information that will entice third party developers like rockstar, is that is easy and with lower costs to develop for.

    Hoping it’ll be more GameCube than Wii like, love the Cube controller, the Wiimote… not so much. They did say they wanted to recapture the ‘hardcore’ (I think) so I guess that’s a good sign. Cautiously optimistic…

  31. hitnrun

    @27: I don’t think Rockstar really cares about fanboy nonsense. Nintendo has a kiddie/casual reputation because its consoles have been underpowered for 10 or 15 years. If their new console is the spec leader, obviously they’ll port their game to it.

    And I think it will be, for at least a year. Even Nintendo can’t fail to beat the specs of 6 and 7 year old competitors…I think.

    Can you people please ignore SOMI? They’re trolling on purpose, and they’ll keep up as long as people respond to them. Ignore it, and they’ll go alway pretty fast.

    As for this console… well, at the end of the day, all that matters is whether it has good games or not. As with any gaming hardware, I’ll pick one up once there’s a solid collection of quality titles on the forma. It’ll probably be cheaper by then too.

    According to the leaked specs, the cpu & gpu are both approximately 50% more powerful than the 360′s.
    I wouldn’t be totally surprised if Sony or Microsoft were to end up using AMD’s next-gen APUs because of it’s overall efficiency rather than PowerPC cpus with separate Nvidia or AMD gpus.

    #34 4 years ago
  35. Erthazus

    @34, i’m not sure about that. That is a neat idea and really cheap. But there is a problem. You will never make a Next generation console with them. The best use for them is for people who want a console experience on their PC’s.

    AMD’s next chip will be always behind new technology. I still need to see how this thing will do in the market.

    @42 It’s a matter of necessity, not choice. Most companies are already adapting themselves for 64 bit processors, Windows included. 32 bit hardware is already being phased out. 64 bit PCs are already becoming the norm.

    The software we’re creating now, games especially, *cannot* be sustained on 32 bit systems. Video games are the worst hit by this, the memory limitations are holding back a lot of the horse power that already exists in top range graphics cards, which will be bog standard technology in 4 or 5 years anyway.

    @43: And i totally agree with that, they are a necessity. I just expect something else to be the future. As you said, it’s becoming the norm.

If they expect me to spend my money on a new console in one or two years again, they better deliver something that’s worth it.

    With a rational pricetag.

    Don’t mean to be a downer but even if the next Nintendo system does have better processing power and graphics card, guess what developers will do? Give you a hint its what they have been doing for this entire generation (Make it work for the lowest common denominator) Only games that will possibly shine is their first party titles which Nintendo always had that so they would just be playing the same beat.

    No developer is going to make an exclusive, they simply will not, you can earn a lot more money on going Multiplat. Epic Mickey anyone? That game bombed so hard that they had to lay off half the staff. Just being a realist here.

    #47 4 years ago
  48. ManuOtaku

    #47 i think nintendo does not need of exclusives titles from second and third party developers, they need is multiplatform games like GTA, Red dead, Assassins creed and the like, and i think is that what they are aiming for, bring back the strong third party support, like with the ps3 and 360, and i think they are right about it.

    Well epic mickey and little king story sold quite well, for wii games standard of course.

    “i think nintendo does not need of exclusives titles from second and third party developers, they need is multiplatform games like GTA, Red dead, Assassins creed and the like, and i think is that what they are aiming for”

    I get that but if people are expecting better graphics and technology with Nintendo next system games you have too high expectations and thats where I was getting at. I already have a 360 and PS3, no need for me to pick up a new Nintendo system no matter how much better it is to the competitors. The games will look the same through out all the systems except possibly the first party games.

    “Well epic mickey and little king story sold quite well, for wii games standard of course.”

    Well that standard is not very good for 3rd party developers as I said they shit canned half of junction point and laid off half of the employees of Disney Interactive.

    Yes is true, but i think the best looking games on wii are nintendo made, of course with a few exception like muramasa, epic mickey and red steel 2, but mario galaxy 1&2 are the best wii looking games, both are close with the things done in banjo nuts and bolts on the 360, therefore i think the only ones that will exploit the power of a nintendo console for an exclusive, is non other than nintendo, and thats why so many gamers buy nintendo consoles all alone, for their games, but if you add a strong third party support that is the same vein as sony and microsoft, maybe will entice some new gamers to purchase their console, and then will entice more third party support, that will translate in some exclusives for the new nintendo console, i dont know but maybe they will and that is what nintendo is betting on, IMHO.

    Anything is possible, I personally not a fan of Nintendo first party games except Zelda which I am not going to buy a system for one game. SO I will personally will be waiting to see the third party support for this system and what new features Nintendo will put on this new system.

    I wonder it’ll be a “multimedia hub” like the ps3/360, or a dedicated games console with online capabilities? I’m also wondering If their multiplayer will still rely on friend codes…. how does that work anyway?

    Well, even if the big 3rd parties do what they always do and develop for the weakest system, it’s still a pretty big deal for Nintendo to have the frontrunner, since they will be developing to the system’s potential. I mean, I happen to think Mario peaked 15 years ago and Zelda even earlier, but many people still rabidly follow these franchises.

    Plus you throw in Wii functionality (by reputation, obviously; PS3 and 360 have since caught up) and the cutting-edge 3rd parties willing to service the hot new sexiness, and you could have a recipe for success.

    The two uncertain elements are the sluggish economy (any reasonable price for a next-gen system is going to be much higher than Americans will want to spend) and the 6 Billion Dollar Question: how many of those Wii buyers that suddenly swamped our hobby in 2006 will be interested in, or even conscious of, a new Nintendo console? Will they even consider buying the new system, or was the Wii really just an expensive George Foreman Grill?

    Is the news about it being more powerful than 360 and PS3 confirmed? Not that it would be surprising, cause it should. Actually it should be MUCH more powerful than that, but oh well.

    I just hope Nintendo realizes now that there are still lots of hardcore gamers. Sure…gives us the awesome as usual Mario games and Donkey Kong too. And please give us a new Zelda and not with that cartoony Skyward Sword look, but also give us some other great games that have nothing to do with those dancing games or fitness games. Great games…like SNES had loads of.

    I expect it to be at least on par with the Xbox 360.

    This could also put a Hamper on the NGP! Pretty smart of Nintendo to compete with the dollars, even if it is Hand-Held Dollars.

    The NGP better get established quick, and have quite a few more then 4-5 titles at launch!

    Because if the NGP is close to the Price of Next Gen Wii…most families will buy the Wii 2 instead of the NGP.

    It is easier to share a New Wii 2 with the Whole Family then it is for the Entire Family to share 1 Hand-Held. And you sure are not going to buy 3-4 NGP’s for one family when 1 Wii 2 will cover the whole family!

    Would have liked to see the NGP come out this March and have a good year on the Wii 2, but alas, this is not to be.

    The NGP could suffer the same fate as the PSP 1 if they don’t have a HUGE STRONG LIBRARY!!! in which the PSP 1 suffered from greatly!!

    Pretty smart of Nintendo to release the Wii 2 around the same time as the NGP!
