    Looking on Gonintendo's Frontpage we get the motherload of rumors this time around
    link: http://www.qj.net/wii/news/massive-project...ils-leaked.html

    My opinion this a what someone wants Project Cafe (Wii 2) to have built in seems way to powerful to have a triple core @ 3.6 GHz, if thats true they better have a good coolant system cuz that thing is going to get hot, I do like the photo of what the Wii 2 will look like, looks sexy

    pokemon online seems reasonable to definitely show off online we shall see in a couple of days though at what Nintendo is going to show off speculate away

    I'll be honest, the only thing that scares me at this point is the price. I'm hoping it's sub $400.

    If it sounds too good to be true, then it probably is.

    Also "Nintendo have sourced an external company to develop their online network, which the developer has commented, surpasses both the PS3 and 360 in terms of speed and functionality."

    I find it hard to believe that they can come out right away with a network better then Xbox Live.

    Why not, they need to and it's wise if they have.

    OP: You are assuming the IBM PowerPC Xenon processor is based exactly like the one in the 360 just with 400Mhz faster clock speed, yet seeing as how the 45nm model has been out for around a year now has less cooling problems then it's original 90nm brother, as well as the 65nm one, I'd say it's a safe bet that Nintendo is getting IBM to bring it down to a 30nm processor if they can, if not 45nm would not be a very hot processor compared to the original.

    Two years time to develop games is a lot though, if that is true then we should expect to see some great games at release time that have had good teams working on them. Also, I am concerned about a storage medium. Ideally I would prefer it to use a slim hard drive like the PS3 does and it should be able to use whatever hard drive we buy, something I really dislike about the 360 is the limited options.

    Shit man so many rumors, I'd love to see the Pokemon RPG become a reality and the idea of a Mii as main character, only if it has VA [​IMG]

    Well when you think Xbox Live has been going for nearly 10 years I just think it would be hard to make something as good or better in such a short space of time, but I would love to be proved wrong.

    Even if you don't want it to be, like the 3DS? Fuck Nintendo. After all the crap they put in the 3DS EULA, I wouldn't take one for free (well, I would, but I would just sell it). If the next console is going to be even worse, Nintendo is dead to me. No amount of Zelda and Mario games can overcome their evil.

    The original Live system was lousy. I think it doesn't take a genius to realize that there are ways of making online systems more user friendly, one of the things I have never enjoyed about any of the online networks is how annoying it is to play online. I like how PC games you literally press a couple of buttons and can instantly be in a game. I want that on my consoles as well.

    The Wii is technically connected to the internet 24 hours a day unless you have it unplugged or disable the online.

    I found a pic of the PS3 from when rumors about it were still floating around. Guess what? It's the same has the black wii2/project cafe, only it's white and has a Blue PS3 logo slapped on it. This is proof the Wii 2 pics are completely fake garbage.

    People that keep saying it sounds too good to be true, think about it critically.

    Nintendo is going to release a system thats at least as powerful if not more so than the PS3, they have to, the whole point of this console is to be able to compete with the other systems and be able host as impressive of 3rd party libraries. Having said that, Nintendo also must know that while they'll be fresh and new, Micrsosoft and Sony can't be much than 2 years behind with their own next consoles, meaning that Nintendo should want to be at least a little more powerful than the PS3 and 360 so it will be able to continue to compete with the competition and continue to have as strong of a 3rd party library.

    In fact, reading this report as opposed to most of the latest specs. I find this the most believable. I'm just interested in what this theoretical console would do about memory storage.

    Damage control with 3rd parties but releasing a Mario game at launch? Seems kinda contradictory. Fake. Next.

    This will be Ninty's attempt for a serious console again.
    After "trying" the Wii.

    Now it's "their" time to be "modern". Can't wait for what hey have in store for us!
