Nintendo's Wii Successor to Dominate E3 Expo

Almost six years ago at the annual Electronic Entertainment Expo, Nintendo unveiled what would eventually become known as the Wii. But the Japanese gaming giant didn't show off the new console's distinctive motion-sensing capabilities until later that year at the Tokyo Game Show. Nintendo won't be such a tease at this year's E3.

After two years of shrinking Wii sales, the gamemaker will fully raise the curtain on the Wii's successor at the gaming industry's annual convention in downtown Los Angeles this week. Nintendo Co. has remained silent about just what the doodad will do, but gamers are anticipating features like high-definition graphics and touchscreen controllers. (E3, Project Cafe, PS3, Wii, Xbox 360)

The NPC has BC with Wii games, does this mean that the NPC will come with sensor bar and stuff? You know, to play the Wii games on NPC with the Wii-mote.

Slutface Has a Slight Point
Nintendo DOES need to come out with some new IPs instead of the same rehashed Mario and Zelda games over and over again. Sure MS and Sony do it too, but they ALSO give us NEW IPs too. Nintendo is by FAR the worst at re-selling us essentially the same game year after year on different consoles/handhelds.

I'm very excited for this new Nintendo console, but I just want to see them give us some new IPs as well as a new console.

I want to see Nintendo pull a Sony and take some chances with some games like Heavy Rain or The Last Guardian. Taking chances is what allows the industry to grow and mature and allows these consoles to be more unique and not just different boxes with the SAME games as the other ones.

"lol sorry nintendo but im a serious gamer not some casualite u can dazzle with ur latest gimmick bwahahaha"

And yet if the rumor is correct about this new Wii system, it will be far superior and "hardcore" then the PS3 and the Xbox360. It will actually be able to play games in 1080p using real Anti-Aliasing...Something the other consoles will never do :P

Yes cause gaming is all about being serious.
I'm trying to laugh, but comments like yours are getting sad.

Honestly, Nintendo should name this system the 'STFU'. It seems like Nintendo is going out of their way to eliminate all the excuses people have whined and complained about for the past 15 years.

Even if this system only does half the stuff it is rumored to it is still a huge leap for Nintendo. If that still isn't enough for some people, well they basically have a bias towards Nintendo and the company should really care less about them. Those people are cheating themselves.

Specs don't make good games. How stoked are you for a bunch of nice looking shovelware crap? Sorry Nintendo but your performance with the Wii has left a bitter taste in many peoples mouth. You have alot of catching up to do.

And can we maybe get some new IPs or good third party games and not rehashes of tired old same old, same old?

"Specs don't make good games. "

But they sure set the constraints for developers.
