    Confirmed: Wii 2 to be announced and playable at E3 2011, probably not released until after next March

    Nintendo has sent out a press release confirming that the successor to the Wii will be announced and playable at E3 2011

    "Nintendo Co. Ltd. has decided to launch in 2012 a system to succeed Wii, which the company has sold 86.01 million units on a consolidated shipment basis between its launch in 2006 and the end of March 2011.

    We will show a playable model of the new system and announce more specifications at the E3 Expo, which will be held June 7-9, 2011 in Los Angeles.

    Sales of the new system have not been included in the financial forecasts announced today for the fiscal term ending March 2012."

    ...Wasn't there only one E3 where the 3DS was there?

    Don't forget the abysmal year with... *shutters*... WiiMusic...

    I'd also like to point out that this is still a rumor. I mean, look at the name of the source. And if it was confirmed, Kotaku, Joystiq, IGN would be jumping all over this.

    So its finally time for the next gen console to start coming in....Though I don't expect for Sony/Microsoft to put anything out anytime soon (like few years soon)

    Nintendo is known for their immense level of innovation so Im quite interested to see what new innovation this console will bring to gaming that Sony/Microsoft will soon try to copy.

    EDIT - I think the source is a fake....The twitter they linked to doesn't even exist

    Well, Kotaku just published the article. I suppose this is somewhat true.

    I cant remember what year it was exactly but Nintendo did absolutely horrible and showed off no worthy first party titles and boasted a crap ton of numbers at a crowd who didn't give a damn. I think how bad Nintendo did made Sony's press conference really good that year.

    And so, the era of free Nintendo games shall finally be ended...

    But that's okay. I'm actually looking forward to whatever Nintendo has in store. I'm getting a job soon so hopefully I can afford the new crop of games.

    Hope this ends up like last years E3, Microsoft did decent until Kinect showed up and make everyone laugh thier butts off, Sony was basically showing TV Commercials for all thier games, and Nintendo completely blew everyones pants off.

    This should be the year of the 3DS ;o, im tired of people asking "Omg, why'd you buy a 3DS"
