I'm guessing they're going for really low cost here.

If those specs are true I'll gladly wait for the next round of offerings from sony and microsoft.

This is Nintendo we're talking about.  The 3DS's specs aren't significantly above the 6 year old PSP.

Is anyone else worried about how much one of these fancy controllers is going to cost?

It's the current gen all over again, the machine will once again lack third party support because the tech will be in a completely different league and too much of a downgrade compared to the other systems. Mario to the rescue!

http://www.siliconera.com/2011/04/25/nintendos-wii-successor-will-be-revealed-at-e3-launching-in-2012/

Apparently it's gonna be released at 2012.
I could say that was fast, but I always forget that the Wii was released in 2006. Almost 5 years ago.
And it's gonna be capable of displaying HD graphic.

One of the guys there left a comment about the small Japanese companies that don't really have enough budget for releasing games in HD and now that every console has gone to be pretty powerful, what's really gonna happen to them? I hope that doesn't mean the end of niche titles.

The Wii is the worst thing ever to happen to games. It proved that you don't have to have state of the art graphics, sound, and storage to be a huge hit. As a result it's successor is reportedly a slight improvement over the current gen. And now we have microsoft saying they want to turn big profits from day one on a new console, leading us to believe it will not have a leap in technology seen in previous hardware releases.


I'm not all about graphics, and I know they want to make money being a business and all, but getting pumped over what the next gen can do above and beyond visually has been fascinating to me ever since I saw the Super Mario World preview commercial on Home Improvement on TGIF

Woops. Sorry. I didn't know we can discuss about new consoles in the General Discussion. I was sure the thread is supposed to be here.

Digital Foundry takes a look at the rumoured specs:

"If you can't achieve a true generational leap in graphical fidelity that would be noticeable and immediately appealing to a mainstream audience, targeting a new controller concept makes a lot more sense."

He has a point. Specs seem to be similar to the 360's based on what we have so far. I'm very curious about ram though, will they stick with 512mb even knowing that it's the bigges bottleneck in the PS360?

I just posted an interesting article in the other thread. Details are still scarce though.

I really don't want a "gimmick" console, I like controllers.

Well, I think it's safe to assume Nintendo will keep targeting casual gamers and younger gamers. Do these people really like gimmick controllers?
I know I hate the wiimote and don't want to move anything else other than my fingers when playing a game.

When I heard about this new console I started thinking to myself, a new console already? But the Wii hasn't even been out that long! Then I realized the Wii came out in 2006. I felt like it never even hit a high point. Or maybe I just missed out on it? I'm still rocking my PS2 after all these years.

So I guess Nintendo confirmed it, and it'll be PLAYABLE at E3?

Two-hour long Nintendo booth lineup, here I come. Gonna need extra Starbuck's that day...

Haha this made me laugh.  To me, the console hit the steep high at Brawl, and declined after it as well.  There's nothing sadder looking than the Wii section at a video game store.  I can't say I've every wanted to play the 'Nerf' game.
