GR: Word on the interwebs suggests that the Big N is gearing up for some sort of hardware reveal at this year's Electronic Entertainment Expo.
Wii Me to follow the Wii U?
Me to U? Guess we'll know who will be promoting it http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-A... If by some unlikely chance that it is a new console (again highly unlikely) then I hope it's not called the "Wii". Could be a new model...hell they might give it a name change so it "seems" new.
Whenever they come out with their next system I hope they reboot the name back to NES, then do numerical sequels, NES 2, NES 3, etc.
I wouldn't mind that since it's basically like what Sony has done with the PS (PS1, PS2, PS3 etc) NES - Nintendo Entertainment System I don't see why they didn't keep that name, I mean it's basically what it is, it's their console, an Nintendo Entertainment System. Although I think it's too late now, they've gone a way where the majority of their consoles have featured a different names. NES SNES N64 Gamecube Wii Wii U Only exceptions being the SNES and Wii U now. Suppose it didn't matter much with the SNES though since back them the market was very different then what it is now. Long as the next console isn't called "the Wii..." I'll be fine.
It would be hilarious if they brought out a new system more powerful than the PS4/X1
@ foxtrot Try Nintendo "Fusion" a handheld/console device combination console. take a wild guess able to play 3ds/wii/wii U games.
No, it's the Wii We.
lmao! It's the Wii 2U aka the Wii double-U :)
Probably a peripheral. Most likely another variant on the 2DS or 3DS. If they were going console, I'd want at least another year of development BEFORE any announcement.
I've said it before but I'm gonna say it again. It's gonna be 2DSXL
Nope it's going to be called the Nintendo Us
Why does everyone insist its a new console? The patent they just filed was specifically for a handheld device. The Wii U is going nowhere. It could possibly be a handeheld Wii U, but its more than likely either a new Gamepad or a new handheld.
Wii the people? Anyone......
Lol.. Wii Too perhaps?
They need something big to compete with the next-gen consoles and all the software they'll have to show.
Indeed. Something tells me it will be a GamePad or 3DS redesign, tho.
agree with you. I think it's a gamepad redesign.
Without a press conference, I don't know if there will be one. But if it's true, I imagine the Wii We?
I bet it's the famicom U or F U for short
Probably a new peripheral or a 3DS with two circle pads + 2 extra buttons.
nope. Battery life will be 1-3 hours
An additional analog input would not reduce it's battery life.
my 3DS lasts forever, my Vita is the one with the shit battery.
http://m.ign.com/articles/2... @thehobbyist I dont say stuff just to say it do some research
New WiiU hopefully with brain melting speed so EA can stfu and every third party dev can NOT put their games on the Nintendo console for whatever reason tickles their fancy...I don't know, its not black enough. That being said, Id also like to see a 3DS redesign with second stick AND lots more horse power. Thats all. Oh and MORE GAMES!
I don't see how they could add "horsepower" to a new 3ds without alienating the millions of 3ds owners. And I hope you don't need me to explain why. Though the thought of a new model with a second stick has me intrigued. I've been saving up for a 3DS recently, I may just wait for E3 just to be on the safe side.
Just saw this on ebay, if I didnt own a 3DS already I would have bought it myself. http://www.ebay.com/itm/281...
I'm going to make a really weird guess here and say that Nintendo's about to release a new-generation handheld instead of a newly-designed 3DS. One that doesn't have crazy graphics hardware, but enough that the resolution on the main screen can run around the resolution of your average 2014 smartphone. Backwards-compatible with DS and 3DS games, uprezzed through some sort of software-based filters. With the resolution kicked up, suddenly you get the opportunity to make it an effective WiiU gamepad (possibly with interchangeable parts per the rumored patent), hence solving the problem of how expensive a gamepad is on its own, and the problem of playing higher-resolution games on a low-res handheld system. I'd say that's a good first step forward from the consolidated R&D departments - while it's a bit early for a new handheld from them, I think they know they need to do something drastic, and this would be a safer drastic action. This would be the first step in unifying N's console business with its handheld business, something they should have done a generation ago. Even safer would be a 3DS with a high-res screen and some sort of tech to up-res 3DS games, but why would they not take advantage of the screen with new (but not too new) hardware?
I doubt it.
Remodeled, updated Wii U & gamepad, launching with new game, possibly new Zelda. Version of new model with gamepad & cheaper one without gamepad.
I'm confused. I thought they were gonna appear on the show floor instead of a e3 show
It's going to be a new version of Wii U
