GameTrailers editor in chief claims that third-parties will be making some big announcements for Nintendo's next console on Tuesday.
that is all cool but this console also needs to have some type of real online service
and a real controller
wii did it was the classic controller nintendo wasn't smart enough to bundle it though IMO
And real graphics And real people And real physics And real pokemons And real princesses And real plumbers And real Stars And real theft And real hookers And real pikmin And real STFU.
@sidar They will ALWAYS complain about something. lol Also to some of the comments above, the wii supported both classic controls and gamecube which most games utilized. So seriously get some facts right.
Nintendo's conference is going to be their best yet. Four systems, with a bunch of game announcements for each one. It can't get better than that.
From third part publishers Call of duty Modern Warfare 3 Assassins creed Revelations Battlefield 3 Madden NFL @plbelanger They can come out later for the new nintendo console. That is how it was for the PS3 when it came out after the xbox 360.
All claims say 2nd half of 2012 will be the release while all those games come out this year.
shane said this in the last episode of invisible walls.
I assume this was taken from invisible walls. It was also mentioned that big promises were made at the Wii launch and the banner of how many third party developers were going to develop for the Wii and ended up making games like sponge bob square pants (exception being red steel). This has been blown out of proportion. Watch invisible walls. He says he has heard rumours about big third party announcements. Rumours not some inside knowledge.
FYI Redsteel was crap. Game wasnt finshed. Enemies would just stop dead and stand there while you walked by. If you are going to bbring up good 3rd party support for Wii RedSteel is a very bad example
If it really comes half 2012, then i hope for nintendo, that they keep catering to their social fanbase. Because by half 2012 we will probably get the first details of the next gen ps and xbox, those will obliterate the specs of the cafe. Something similar happened to the dreamcast, that came out before the ps2 and xbox, and was fairly under performing compared to the ps2 and xbox, making a lot of people skip the dreamcast.
we all knew from launch Wii was weakest but that didnt stop 85 million from buying. The whole wait and see bit is just bitter fanboys living on false hope. You have no idea what MS or Sony are going to launch with. You dont know if 6 months from now that they will announce a suposedly far superior console. Tech doesnt advance that fast. You just arent being realistic with that load of BS and sound more like a bitter fanboy." Oh just wait til Sony announces a console thats 5 times as powerful as a console that comes out next year.' Yeah and wait for that console to have an extremely high price tag to boot while only being slightly superior if at all.
On top of that he can't afford tech in a console higher than wii spec. He would have to buy an alienware laptop to do better. Ms and Sony knows pc parts in a console mean no profit for years. Can they afford that or can fanboys really afford a $999 console I guess we will see.
Nintendo is only now putting their hat in the current gen ring with a system that's pretty much on par with 2 that came out 5-6 years ago. A few questions remain: They sold the most systems so far but are they going to continue to support the Wii and this new system? Will the casual audience that bought the Wii rush out and buy this more expensive console (odds are most expensive when compared to 360 and PS3)? Will the third party developers rush to the console after being bitten by the Wii? 85 million consoles sold, sure. But software sales were pretty dismal if you were a company not named Nintendo. I guess we'll see.
Cyclonus, If you want to talk about something at elast have facts. 3rd aprty sales for Wii were great. More 3rd party million sellers on Wii than 1st party. Monster Hunter Tri is the best selling console version to date. There are plenty of other examples. Are you the type of idiot that thinks selling 600k on Wii is a bomb while on PS3 its a success? Because that is the only way someone could come to your conclusiion. being completely clueless to sales. ALso we dont know what the Wii2 specs are as of yet. Again you are making false assumption based on ignorance
Third party sales are great? Only 1 (Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games) cracks the top ten. I'm saying that third parties make more money on PS3 and 360 than the Wii. The highest selling games on Wii are Nintendo's. Plain and simple. Need a third party example: Highest selling PS3 game: Black Ops 10 mil Highest selling 360 game: Black Ops 12.5 mil Highest selling Wii game? Wii Sports 76 mil (if you include a game that's bundled with the system) but where is Black Ops? Almost at 1 mil. An unfair example, sure; but how does a system with over 30 million more consoles sold do a 1/10th of the sales on a highly popular game? Nintendo's games sell extremely well and everyone else sells much less. Even fewer when it comes to multiplatform titles. To be considered a success on PS3 and 360, games generally need to sell at least a million. The bar should be even higher on Wii with its install base. Game budgets are getting bigger, not smaller and 600k in sales doesn't cut it. As for the specs on Nintendo's system, be ready for disappointment if you think third party games are going to look and play substantially better on it. The games will be on par with current consoles for the next 2 years and then when Sony and Microsoft release new systems, it will be obsolete. More than graphics and processing power, functionality is what's going to be important next gen. Nintendo wants to stay a generation behind for a while and they will do just that. That's their strategy and there's nothing wrong with that.
E3 2011=Nintendo win!! I think new N console awesome! Big announcements? Maybe RE6 exlusive,and new Zelda,Mario,FF and more....maybe...
I hope it has a regular controller, then it would make sense that it would get alot of 360/ps3/PC ports. I hope its alot better than the ps3/360 because that may make the next xbox and PS even better maybe, or have them launch sooner. Id really like to see something way more powerful than 360/PS3. That wouldnt be too hard but nintendo have been pretty conservative with their hardware recently. It will be interesting to see comparisons where the new nintendo console has multiplats that stomp on ps3 360, ohh noooooo. wee will have wii2 fanboys
Why do people still think that we're going to get Consoles hands and feet above the current gen? THIS GEN hardware is too expensive and risky for developers. They don't want to make games on hardware that is going to be more difficult and/or more expensive to develop for. They don't want more Polygons. They want smoothness, ease to work with and better fill rate. Only EA, Activision and the like can afford this huge jump that some of you hope for, and they're too cheap. I'd suggest that you lower your expectations. This next gen will be about slightly better graphics (but universally comparable) and more solid 'gimmicks' from each respective company. NO ONE CAN AFFORD TO DEVELOP GAMES ON A CONSOLE THAT IS VASTLY MORE POWERFUL THAN A PS3. Even if the console hardware were cheap to make due to affordable parts, Developers can't afford to develop more technically advanced games on it. Expect great graphics and physics with neat little upscaling tricks at best.
Especially SquareEnix... As such, I expect ports. As a Nintendo fan, that excites me anyway.
I just hope they (3rd parties) don't drop the ball, like they did with the 3DS' launch titles. Who else rushed out and bought Battle of the Giants 3D?!...a game thats on the DS >_> anyway, they should do good, they (nintendo) should do great this year, with he 3ds & Cafe, plus we can see the dying DS & Wii games, like Kirby & Zelda.
Yeah I think that third party developers would announce games for it but I doubt that they would demo them or show the controller or the console on Tuesday, before the Nintendo press conference.
I just hope there is no more Remakes gone wrong like Golden axe..... shiver shiver
sweet!! dont hate, dont hate.
Grand Theft Auto 5 announcement is emanate. I also think Beyond Good and Evil 2, Tomb Raider, Hitman 5, and etc will be announce for CAFE. It will have third party support, but in 3 years thats 2014, Xbox Next and PS4 will be more powerful with more RAM and etc. It like a Dreamcast, which was a generation in the middle.
Maybe more ram but more power? Maybe not. Maybe mire antialiasing but that's about it. There is another wall coming and it's called heat.
we don't know but Nintendo always have something up its sleeve.
Will to bet money Sony and MS release a new console way sooner than 3 years
No don't count on it they see no threat with this new system. Their only advantage right now is that 360 and PS3 are cheaper.
let me ask you this. if you were about to fight a small child for some reason would you feel threatened? No. because you assume that child is weak and can't hurt you. Now what if that child revealed himself as a Shaolin Monk and started causing you physical pain and kickng your butt? I bet you'd pull out a weapon! Same here. They aren't threatened cause they assume Nintendo is small and weak, but IF (keyword: IF) Nintendo comes out with something that threatens them, they are going to pull out their weapon, which is a new Console!
OK you made your point,but if these rumor spec are true well it would be good, but not to far from the 512 RAM on 360 and PS3, and its just a bit more powerful than a 360 and pretty close to PS3 according to the rumor . That is not a threat. Its just a system that should of been release during the launch of 360 and PS3. I expect the Xbox Next and PS4 to double the RAM, and the Graphics in 3 years time(2014).
I'm loving the fact that fanboys on BOTH sides are starting to become a little scared of what Nintendo has up their sleeves...I love it!
I love how everyone down plays Nintendo's new console when they were wishing for WIIHD for years!
