Nintendo confirms new console for 2012

Written by


To be showcased at E3 in June
Nintendo has officially confirmed that it will introduce a new gaming console in 2012 to replace the venerable Wii.

The company plans to showcase the new console at E3 in Los Angeles in June, but no precise launch date has been set. Punters believe the launch should take place sometime in the first half of the year.

The console, dubbed Stream, Project Café or just Wii 2, is said to feature a faster IBM PowerPC processor, AMD HD 4770-derived graphics and an innovative controllers with built in touchscreens.

At this point it is unclear what Nintendo plans to do with its best selling Wii once the successor is introduced. The Wii has already seen a small price cut last week and if Nintendo chooses to keep it on sale next year it might end up the biggest bargain in the gaming industry.

If the new Wii doesn't have any direct compettion from a new Xbox or Playstation console, it will clean up during 2012, lots of Xbox 360 and PS3 gamers are ready for an upgrade now, this new Wii will sell extremely well unless they counter it with a new Xbox 720 or PS4 imo..

PS2 and Gamecube @ $99 were bigger bargains.

As an owner of all three of those consoles and one of the few gamers who has never once regretted buying a Wii at full price near launch, I disagree. Even at $99, Wii can't top that bargain.

EDIT: Wait, I just realized how stupid that last sentence was. lol

They should make Wii and Stream co-existant

Wii > mass market
Stream > Hardcore

Problem solved , nintendo ... was always the best!

They refer to it as a successor. Also, while that may work at first, it would be stupid to do that for the long-term. They won't be able to compete directly with Microsoft and Sony with major changes, but even then, the "hardcore" gamers might not care about a Nintendo console.

+1 except the Nintendo was always best bit, Snes was best for a while then Playstation 1 and Playstation 2, Sony dropped the ball a bit with the Playstation 3 overpricing it at lauch and underpowering its hardware, The Xbox 360 is king now..

If there is no new consoles except the New Wii in 2012, the new Wii will sell like hotcakes..

So, let me get this straight, they are creating the future console next year with 5 year old tech? Wow, that's something to look forward to.
Consoles are really helping to push tech fwd aren't they.
Stop buying this stuff people.
