*UPDATE* Even more rumours are going around now with details that it may launch in October with a price point of $350 to $400 and will also include custom built AMD graphics that will outperform the PS3. It will also have the potential to produce stereoscopic 3D images! I’m not sure about these and I would take some seawater around with this one. You can read more about it here. More Wii 2 rumours are currently swirling the net with a new image that has recently leaked that appears to feature the new Nintendo console. The image is below, and on it you can see the new features that Nintendo is boasting. It is important to note, however, that this image is probably not meant for the general public to see (ie. we will not see this at E3) and is for developers instead. That console pictured could also be the SDK (development) unit, but considering the fact that Nintendo’s dev units in the past have not differed greatly from the retail version, what we could be seeing might be a real indication of what we might see in June. Back to the picture in question: the title Innovation Reinvented is definitely one that I can see Nintendo using. Innovation is a word that Nintendo like to use often with their products including the Wii Remote when it was announced. Nintendo appear to be touting cheap development costs too with unparalleled gaming performance which is very interesting from a gamers’ standpoint. As everyone knows, the Wii is nowhere near the Xbox 360 and PS3 in terms on graphics which is the very reason why many developers have ceased porting their multiplatform games to the system. This could bring them crawling back, though. Other interesting points on the image include easy porting between PC and Xbox 360 which I assume basically means that it will be using the same CPU/GPU architecture as PC’s and 360?s, not the CELL and other complicated things that Sony used in the PS3. Developers will be very happy to hear that. Also they have noted anytime live update which is something that the Wii is sorely missing and some Live Framework that I am unsure of what it is but it shouldn’t concern us consumers. As for the console itself, we can see 3 lights on the unit and what I presume is an eject button just left of these. There is also a Nintendo logo on the side of the console. It appears to be using the same “suck-in” DVD drive that the Wii used too. And that’s about everything that we get from this simple image. It’s certainly interesting, but if it’s real or not is another question. The console pictured could be absolutely anything from an external HDD to a freeview box with a built in DVD player, so it should be taken with a few grains of salt. No mention of this new revolutionary controller either, so we’ll just have to eagerly await the Nintendo conference at E3 this June. Here’s the image:[/p] Source It's certainly interesting but there are so many conflicting sources. Some say it won't launch in October and be very expensive, others say it will be. I just don't know what to believe anymore. If I'm honest, I'm not completely sure if their next console will be a PS3 beater. But we'll see.
