    Why would they start working on another console after wiiu has been out for not even 2 years?

    definitely fake

    Nintendo should make a Pokemon game for the Wii U.
    It'll boost sales for sure then.
    Not only that but Ninty should hurry up and release some good AAA titles.

    Would destroy people's faith in Nintendo if true, so common sense says not true.

    Well actually it would make sense to start on development early, but i still wouldn't put much faith in a rumor.

    They did start on Wii U development a year after the Wii was released

    Development =\= Release and Announcement.

    The next gen systems were too in development from around 2008. These things do take time.

    That's exactly my point. There's that possibility they're working on the next system already.

    Right, just to dispel any and all confusion, Nintendo is working on a next generation platform - every company is almost immediately after releasing their current generation one. Satoru Iwata himself mentioned that after merging the handheld and home console hardware divisions, their primary objective will be to work on a new ecosystem with two platforms based on more-or-less common hardware in order to allow for quick and easy cross-platform development.

    This is likely where the rumour sprang from, especially judging by the imaginary specs of the "fusion" that I've read earlier today (meaning ARM CPU etc.) which do sound ideal for something that could be used in a portable and in a home console, but that may not be the case in 5-6 years. This is an on-going project, no details are certain, but if there is certainty in one regard then it's the fact that Nintendo is not releasing any new system anytime soon.

    Console development takes years. Ps4 & Xbox one were in development from 2008.

    Yes.
    While consoles from Nintendo with specs like these would surely be a wet dream, this whole project is probably just fake.

    Still, I hope the next Ninty's console won't be a Dreamcast3

    Basically on the same subject, and basically the same conclusion that Foxi made here. This is more open-and-shut than something that typically opens and shuts, like a hardcover book or a treasure chest.

    My similes are weak like something that isn't strong.

    Fake, of course.
    It wouldn't surprise me if Nintendo were already brainstorming what new features ("gimmick" for the rest of you) they're going to base their new console/handheld around but these rumors popping up have it backwards. Nintendo wouldn't decide on the specs at all until much later in the development process (which will probably take the next ~6 years) because it's impossible to know at this point what technology will surface in the next 5 years and how pricing will change, etc.

    I would no think they would make another handheld as the 3ds is doing fine (tho the numbers were less then expected thy still profited), as for a home console, I suppose it is possible, but i doubt it. And they prob would have discontinued the wii u by now if they had it planned. Also I would be shocked if they were not working on the next home and handheld console, it takes years before they actually go into production you know.
