Chris Buffa (Modojo): You may already own a piece of Nintendo's upcoming console, Project Cafe, or plan to buy one in the future, perhaps when The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D hits shelves June 19.
$250 controller is a terrible idea. Would be very cool though.
Well it's not that it's just a controller though. It's more of a complimentary feature in case you want to play a game but not everyone owns Project Cafe or the controller.
Agree but it would cripple any sales for the Console. Buying at least 2 3DS is ridiculously expensive. It will not happen. Nintendo are not dumb. The console would have to be no more than £50
as that should have dual analogues. But I thnk they mean for it to have all kinds of connectivity features with the wii2. Maybe be able to play some VC wii2 games on the go with the 3ds? who knows what they may have planned. Id actually be really surprised is nintendo DIDN'T do something like this.
I can see the next controller having this ability as you can save your mii to the wii controller now but I can also see them bring in the 3ds as another option as well like the psp and ps3 if they do then this would help sell more Nintendo consoles being able to use both devices. But I still don't see Nintendo selling the next console for over £250 as people will be able to look at the ps3 with move and 360 with kinect as the better option. I can't wait to see what they show us at e3 but no matter what is said now it will offer somthing the other two don't and will be an amazing console as Nintendo have never given us a bad console.
I'm sure someone already threw this out there... coincidence that there is the NGP, that in my opinion can be used as a optional controller. So if there is truth behind this touch controller for Nintendo's next system, we might see multi console releases for games usually needing a particular hardware feature. Although I don't see this working too well from Sony's side due to 'needing' to buy NGP to play a particular game on your PS3. Just a random thought.
