Many rumors of a new Wii console going around these days. Expected to be announced at E3.

 

Supposed to be HD, more powerful than ps3 & 360, touch screen on controller as well as dual sticks, possible to stream games & blu-ray. Sounds good so far  :smitten:

Well it has to be more powerful than a PS3 or 360. They came out 6 years ago or whatever. By the time this comes out (2012) my phone will probably be more powerful than a 360. Hope they really go for it and blow the current gen out the water. Should get Microsoft and Sony to hurry up and release some new consoles.

The 360 had already been out a year before the current Wii came out and it's barely more powerful than the six years older PS2. :lol:

 

I just don't think Nintendo are arsed about raw power.

FYI Wii's much more powerful then PS2, even GameCube (which Wii was based on) was more powerful then PS2.

Out of interest, what's so hilarious?

Pay hundreds of dollars for a new console just so the controller can tell me how many stars/colored keys/pokemon/pieces of the triforce I have.

Many of you may have already heard on the rumor mill of extremely heavy stirrings, talking of a possible new Nintendo console. This thread exists in an effort to consolidate and compile as many of the possible rumored tech specs and information we have so far about the alleged new system. It is important to remember however, even with the sheer amount of sources citing all this, we still haven't got any sort of confirmation from Nintendo. So take all these rumors with a grain of salt (or an entire bottle). Until we get any sort of confirmation, ALL rumors about the system (and the system itself remain unconfirmed and are subject to change. I will attempt to keep this thread updated as new rumors are available. If and when the real thing is announced and solid information is confirmed first-hand, a new thread will be created by someone to formally announce the system. If the system and all rumors turn out to be untrue, an update will be posted here to confirm and the thread will be locked. Any, all, or none of these rumors could actually end up being true as far as we know. Some rumors may also contradict one another as different sources say different things. So, with that out of the way, here are the rumors we've heard so far in regards to Nintendo's new console (sources are in parenthesis)-

 

- Codenamed "Project Café", final name unknown (CVG)

- Formal announcement E3 2011 or before, with a targeted release in late 2012 (CVG)

- Developers such as Ubisoft, Activision, and EA have had the devkit for months (EDGE)

- Controller has 6-inch touch screen, front-facing camera, D-Pad, two bumpers, two triggers and "possibly more," functions as a Wii sensor bar (CVG)

- Conflicting reports on the controller screen resolution, some say it's HD, others say sub-HD (CVG and VG247)

- Controller allows streaming of full games to the device from the console "like a mini TV" (Jim Reilly's Twitter)

- Superior motion controls, better than Move (EDGE)

- First and third party Project Café games to be shown at E3. Not confirmed if there's any playable games (Jim Reilly's Twitter)

- Supports high definition resolution (Game Informer)

- On par with or more powerful than Xbox 360 and PS3 (CVG)

- Custom IBM Tri-core PowerPC CPU, ATI R700 family GPU shader version 4.1, at least 512Mb of RAM (CVG)

- Backwards compatible with both Wii and Gamecube games, along with all peripherals for said systems (CVG)

- Possibly uses Blu-ray discs as the primary media for games (VG247)

- An older comment by Satoru Iwata hints at possibly adding 3D support for future consoles, but not yet rumored by any sources for Project Café (EDGE)

 

So there are the current rumors stated for Nintendo's alleged "Project Café". We shall soon see whether these rumors and the system itself even exist. This post will be updated as new rumors become available. Just remember to take everything as unconfirmed speculation until an official press release is made by Nintendo.

Part of me would love to still be a Nintendo fanboy... so many good memories from my NES, Snes and N64. But nothing they've put out in ages has got me interested or excited.

 

FYI Wii's much more powerful then PS2, even GameCube (which Wii was based on) was more powerful then PS2.

 

Than.

I'd be more interested in this if there was anything that wasn't Mario, Metroid, Pokemon, Smash Bros, or Zelda coming.

 

They don't need a new system, they need some new goddamn franchises.

If they make more Mario games that are as good as Galaxy then it's fine by me.. unbelievable games.

It would be interesting if Nintendo did a Dreamcast on Sony and Microsoft by releasing a cutting-edge console before the other two are ready to start getting into the next cycle, given that they have twice screwed themselves in the past by releasing a slightly more powerful machine far too late after their rivals have already established themselves in the market.

 

If this is actually significantly more powerful than the X360 and the PS3, and Nintendo uses their leverage to bring in A-list titles from big-name third parties before the other two can react, this could be their big comeback to the "hardcore" video game market.

 

I'm not holding my breath though.

It would be spectacular, and I'd love some 'real' games but you just know it's gonna come out with a ridiculous Kinect x2 with added puppies and flower power.

 

I'm still a nintendo fanboy, I just wish I could justify it these days :(

tbf to Nintendo, they do some amazing things with games, and they do try to constantly innovate. But as soon as they come up with a good idea, they immediately ask "Now what can we make Mario do with this?"

 

If I never saw Mario or Link or any of them again, I would be fine with that.

Rumors going around that Rockstar are developing games for the Wii 2. Rumors also has it that they are making GTA 5 for Wii 2, based on release dates for both console and game.

 

I will drink my own piss if GTA 5 is being made for the Wii 2. (Not ported or anything, made for.) And I will love every drop.
