Default New Nintendo Console Confirmed

http://uk.wii.ign.com/articles/116/1163764p1.html

Opinions?

I have my personal doubts about it being "significantly more power full" than the 360 or PS3, but time will tell.

Very interesting- so long as it's more mature than the Wii, and less nauseating than the 3DS.

The controller sounds... Awesome... Providing that it succeeds.

What? Isn't it just a Gamecube-esque controller, or is there something I missed in my skim-read?

The console will also utilize a new, tablet-shaped controller. Sources say it will have a 6-inch touch screen display, dual analog sticks, and has the ability to stream content directly from the console.
dOESN'T sound like a Gamecube controler to me the only thing it has from the gamcube are the two analoge sticks.

All Nintendo will likely do is pump out a bunch of generic games with 'Mario' slapped somewhere like they always do. Either way, I'm unsure how well this console will perform. The BBC reported their profits are down 66% this year, which is an astronomical loss.

I'd like to see Nintendo make a proper comeback to the 'big three' consoles, but their developers seem less than inspired to work on fresh IP's that can compete with more action packed titles on the PS3/360. Their hardware is always interested but they need to keep on top of their game to survive.

Agreed. Nintendo has in my opinion only been successful with handhelds in the more recent years, and those are starting to fade as well imo. The Wii has for me just been one of those consoles that are lagging behind.

Doelago... I can say, without doubt, that tech to surpass both the 360 AND the ps3 exist.

the ps3's tech is already outdated, but it is a HD system.

the 360.... IS NOT EVEN TRUE HD, it runs on multiple Raedon 1600 series cards, which were outdated before the 360 released, let alone now, how many years later?

if nintendo puts the money into this new console, it will, easily be far stronger then the 360. the ps3 is harder to judge, as its internal specs are stronger then that of the 360.

Nintendo can and will make a comeback. Yet I believe that the Wii brand has tarnished the reputation of some genuinely good games that were released on the console. Where Nintendo struggle is getting good 3rd party support but if they have a more powerful console then they can get round this. The newfangledness of XBOX Kinect is already starting to struggle thanks to crap party games like Carnival games that once inhabited the Wii are making their way over.


I have recently started a new Blog. I would really appreciate it if you would LOOK AT IT

Of course there is tech that surpass the PS3 and 360 tech. I never said there isn`t, and I never said that Nintendo would not be capable of surpassing them, but I have my doubts. I haven`t seen one impressive game on the Wii. Not one. That shit has the worst graphics of any 7th generation console.

I mean, they have to fuwken do something drastic to surprise me. I have not seen anything great from Nintendo in a god damn long time. I mean, I have two DS consoles. Haven`t touched them in a year with a purpose for gaming. I have used them as a clock if we are to say the truth. They also work well as a alarm clocks.

But the Wii? Its crap imho.
