Nintendo announcing new console at E3?
« on: April 14, 2011, 06:06:11 PM »
Well, according to this article they are.

http://techland.time.com/2011/04/14/nintendo-confirms-they-will-debut-a-new-console-at-e3/

Actually, this article sucks. At the bottom they comment saying Nintendo has not confirmed this. Sorry!

Smells like a Dreamcast, minus Sega's ineptitude.

Sort of.

Oh for fucks sake.... I'm broke!!!!

Unless *everyone* (developers) hops to the console -- I couldn't care less even if it offered me fine dining with my gaming.

I'm mostly hoping they return to a simple style with a basic controller, which seems to be the case according to this article. No gimmicks? We'll see about that, Nintendo.

I've only planned to buy a Wii this year;basically at the end of its life cycle. I don't see myself buying many games for it either.

I always wondered if their next console is going to be backwards compatible with the Wii catalog. You know, because of the funny controls that are not optional as the Move and all that. Either way, no matter how exciting this turns out to be I'm more interested in handhelds than consoles for the next generation, not to mention, that I'm happy with my PS3 and I still have to buy some PS2 games.

So yeah, is too soon for me to even plan in putting money and time in a new big system yet.

...I might get one console at least in the future though, it all depends in the games that are shown for the system really.

There is no way Nintendo is going to make a new console without motion controls.  That's ridiculous.  Motion controls have made them dump trucks of money.  In the eyes of the general public that's their 'thing' now.

I haven't had a home console by N since N64, and while I loved the crap out of the 5 or so games I played on that it left me w/ a sour enough taste to avoid getting another one since.

If this new thing is more of a return to traditional gaming and looks worthy then maybe i'll get it.


I can almost see them doing a HD Wii and a new console at the same time, but trying to support both would probably be suicide.


Well I can't wait to see what this is

I haven't even had a Wii for a bloody year yet.
I avoid online multiplayer because my brain still works.

Has a Wii title that wasn't "Carnival Games 4" or some shit even come out?

I think motion controls are dick otherwise.  It kinda limits what you can play, to me.  Most actions games would get duped for one, because it'd make you look like an asshat.  If anything that fact that it was not only (a) a weaker console, but (b) heavily limited by its motion control that only sparked so much creativity (which resulted all too often in baking games or jumbles of minigames).  Stop me if I'm wrong, but I thought the wii was avoided because the hardcore gamers had enough of gimmick games.

What I want in the next round of xboxes/PSes is the same fucking controller. We don't need more buttons. We don't need more sticks.

Let us use the same $60 controllers and battery packs and chargers we bought.

And my achievements better fucking carry over

Haha I hate how the PS1, 2, and 3's controllers were voided on each other...despite the exact same design.  You win this time, Sony...!!

Anyways.  Motion control sucks ass.

Goldeneye was surprisingly good (and let you play with a GC controller), and I just picked up Dead Space Extraction, which I also like.

Actually, looking at my list, all of my Wii games are third party except for Mario Galaxy 1 (which was given to me) and Kirby. The third party lineup is decent, it just seems that Nintendo fans just want the same three or four franchises again. (Where the fuck was Starfox this gen?)

You're getting a current-3DS-gen one... a remake.

It's not the same thing! And I'm not getting a 3DS any time soon, so technically I'm not. :(
