    Nintendo's next console will debut at E3 in June, moving the maker of Mario and Zelda into the HD era. The news, first reported by Game Informer today, confirms rumors that have been swirling for months in the wake of slowing game releases from Nintendo.

    Furthermore, we've heard that the machine will be more powerful than current-gen systems, meaning Nintendo, currently backing a Wii that is weaker in horsepower than the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, will be showing a new console that is more powerful than those current competitors.

    We've asked Nintendo for comment and will let you know if they shock us and spill the beans. Update: Nintendo responded to our inquiry with a standard "Nintendo does not comment on rumor or speculation".

    E3 kicks off on June 7, though Nintendo's E3 press conference may occur the day before, if tradition holds.[/p]

    PLEASE NOTE that this is something that Game Informer said. It can COMPLETELY be false. NO FLAMING. [​IMG]

    3DS has just been released, Nintendo would be shooting themselves in the foot if they did this. Not likely at all.

    Well, they are kind of saying it will release in 2012, but you're right. This could be false, but multiple sources confirm it, which is weird.

    The 3DS is a handheld, it's pretty much a different market to consoles.

    It was actually smart for Nintendo that they decided to make the Wii non-HD. Back then, the majority of people didn't have HD televisions. Now fast forward a few years later and now the cost for HD televisions are cheaper and thus a lot more people own one. This kept the cost of the Wii low appealing to a lot of people.

    And it probably isn't a Wii HD, probably something entirely different. And i'm expecting a major graphical leap from the Wii right now.

    As for announcing a new system now... why not?

    Awesome hopefully it will have a few 3d games for it and not the red and blue glasses 3d, but the good 3d like Crysis 2 and other 360/ps3 games.

    Reggie already stated that the next Nintendo console won't have 3D unless the 3D TV market picks up in a big way fast.

    I'd like it if they actually went back, talked it over, and stuck the good ol' name "Nintendo Revolution" to it....

    Btw, inb4Wii60... You know... Wii... 360... Wii60... [​IMG]

    (I know it was dryyyyyyy as hell lmao)
     
  16. I don't have much faith in this rumour.

    I'll wait for a more reliable source to confirm the Wii 2 (e.g, Nikkei).

    No they wouldn't. Everybody want's a WiiHD or something like that. It doesn't even have to be the next gen Wii, just an upgrade.
