page not found looks amazing can't wait day 1 buy

crxss3751d ago

I'm really looking forward to what Nintendo can bring to the table. All i really want are the amazing Nintendo released faster. 5 years in between Twilight Princess and Skyward Sword releases is not acceptable.

PRHB HYBRiiD3751d ago

soo...just by a picture its a day 1 buy? o.o

n4f3751d ago

i never saw a picture of leak being real for nintendo

DeadlyFire3751d ago

Image looks creditable, but why leave Project Cafe on the image. If it was real wouldn't a real name exist on the console. This is the 2nd image I have seen on the net of this same console design though. So its possible. I wouldn't bet my life on it.

Key words "easy portability from PC, 360"

--------3751d ago (Edited 3751d ago )

-
Or a really big router.

RedDead3751d ago

Bringing handheld and home console together it seems.

jaosobno3751d ago

Easy portability from PC/360 is a feature? So, Wii2 = 360 in power?

Classic nintendo, last gen hardware, new gen price.

AAACE53751d ago

And there you have it!

But I wonder... Why did they feel the need to point out that its easy to port PC and XBOX 360 games?

Something fishy going on here... and hopefully it is what i've been hoping for...

blumatt3751d ago

Man, all I know is, either those screens on those controllers are really low resolution screens (240x160 or so), or those controllers are going to cost around $75 a piece. haha But I like what I'm seeing so far. The next important thing will be the cost of the new console. They really can't go any higher than $350-$400 for the console, or people will simply just pick up a PS3 or Xbox 360. Another key selling point for the new Nintendo would be a bluray drive, hopefully used for the games, but at least as a movie player. Can't wait for E3 2011!!

silvacrest3751d ago

the same could be said for the ngp and we already no that exists

Blad3star3751d ago (Edited 3751d ago )

Go Nintedo!!!!!!!!!

Day one purchase for me - Cant wait to play my beloved Zelda,Metriod and Mario in HD.

Nintendo please buy back the Killer Instinct IP from Microsoft and bring onto the Wii HD as a launch title.

ilikecookies3751d ago

He pointed out "easy portability between PC, Xbox 360" for 1 of two reasons. Reason 1 being that its fake because it doesn't mention any other system and acts like the others don't exist. Reason 2 he could be trolling saying its impossible to port from the PS3 because its so good but that's not important. I think this is fake. Take this with a grain of salt.

BattleAxe3751d ago

Its says "Easy portability from PC and Xbox 360". I wonder if its going to have a similar architecture to the 360 then?

Millah3751d ago

@deadlyfire because Nntendo probably hasn't named it yet. They used the "revolution" name publicly for a long time until finally settling on "Wii"

malamdra3751d ago

it seems contradictory that they write that it's next gen technology at current gen price but they also say that it's easilt portable from 360, which is current gen

so which one is it then?

Dee_913751d ago

damn it looks sexy to me

dedicatedtogamers3751d ago

*sigh*

There is no Wii HD, at least not for the next few years.

Wii HD would be a worse mistake for the Nintendo than the Virtua Boy.

Theyellowflash303751d ago

I disagree, The Wii HD makes perfect sense. The Wii is going to sell over 100 million units in the next few years. Its at 80 plus million now. Nintendo can use all the money they made off of the Wii and DS to really to court more core gamers and use this system with modern features to get 3rd parties back on nintendo really for the first time since the SNES.

dedicatedtogamers3751d ago

Why would they WANT to court core gamers? Not a single "core" game has sold anywhere close to the Wii's best sellers. Even the Wii's lower-selling AAA games like Smash Bros Brawl sell far more than most "core" games? When Nintendo DID "court more gamers" it resulted in their decline on the N64 and Gamecube.

Also, the "core" market is shrinking.

Yeah, just because it sound like it'd be a fun system doesn't mean it's a good idea. I hope that Nintendo does not make the Wii 2 a powerhouse.

RememberThe3573751d ago (Edited 3751d ago )

Wow... You actually wrote those comments... So as a gamers you don't want fun games? Am I missing something?

I don't think you actually know what "core gamer" means. The core game is one that is not a casual game. Popular titles like COD, AC, BF, GTA, and GT are core titles. Wii Sprots sold with the console and even if you want to count successful shovleware theres only a handful. Their may be some hugely successful casual games but there aren't many.

Where are you getting this "the core market is shrinking"? The core market is the most stable section of the market. If the core market is shrinking so badly than why are both the PS3 and 360 seeing continued growth while the Wii is seeing a drop in sales? Core games are still moving in mass, and at a sustainable rate. I'm talking about many games moving millions instead of one game moving millions.

Diversity is key to a healthy industry and Nintendo probably sees this. They don't want to just make more casual titles, they want to make title for both the core and casual so that they have a strong foundation. This is what Sony and MS are doing with Move and Kinect. It's about diversifying and having a business model that can adapt to a changing market. If the core market shrinks they can make it up in the casual market and vice versa.

It makes sense when you think about it.

N4g_null3751d ago

When nintendo courted gamers during the n64 up to the GC there games where not really as good as they are now.

First they just didn't look as good. Then they just had awkward frame rate and control issues that made nintendo whimp out on difficulty.

Nintendo is ready for hd now. I really didn't want to get sequels on the wii and so far we have not seem that yet.

Now after playing say battle field maybe you can chill out by playing some Mario? This balance makes it ok to try different types of games

Damn page on load! I want to see it :p lol

gamerzBEreal173751d ago

does that say easy portability from PC-Xbox360? WTF?

kneon3751d ago

Probably means a newer variant of the Xbox CPU and direct X support.

theEnemy3751d ago

Wii 2?

More like an Xbox 720 lol.

Cyorg3751d ago

It's an SDK (Software Developement Kit).
"easy portability from PC, 360"

It's not the Wii-HD.

duplissi3751d ago (Edited 3751d ago )

woo, not too bright eh?

yeah its an sdk/dev kit, but! its an sdk for the project cafe aka wii 2/hd... so yes its an sdk and yes its the wii 2/hd... jeez

just look at the ps3, wii and xbox sdks/dev kits:

http://multiplayerblog.mtv....

http://www.psnathome.com/wp...

http://www.maxconsole.net/c...

gee, they look a lot like an xbox, wii and ps3!!!!

granted that doesnt mean that next gen dev kits will look like their retail cousins but its a good assumption.

Cyorg3751d ago

Yeah... Nevermind. I had misread the picture.

JLeVRT3751d ago

I would like Nintendo if it kept up in graphics to the curreny gen, wasnt too gimmicky, and had MUCH better games than just Mario.

I admit, this console looks good, and Nintendo is a good company, but im afraid that when Sony and MS release their new consoles, Nintendo will lose Dev support again. Thats why im not a big fan of Nintendo...

trancefreak3750d ago (Edited 3750d ago )

English your 2nd language?

Are you saying you want Nintendo to have the graphical capabilities in likes of the ps3/360 or close to what a mid ranged PC could offer?

I don't think Nintendo will offer much more than the current gen consoles in all honesty!

I believe Nintendo knows that the ps3 and 360 will hang around awhile longer and wants to be on a equal a playing field. They want to capture perhaps some of the hd gaming market which seems to be the obvious.

If the PS4/Next Box comes along they Nintendo would just have to release a couple years after that generation cycle IMO.

eagle213751d ago (Edited 3751d ago )

the Nintendo logo on the bottom right makes me believe most...and the fact the lines match those "white" blueprint designs we saw a day ago. OMG IT DOES!! It looks good...wouldn't mind a silver or a white too. The image is shot from under, i bet it's sleek. Even wii can look bigger shot from under...

Day 1...forget da haters. Go play yo FPS....lol

TheMrMadzen3751d ago

"Easy portability from PC, Xbox 360"
Wait what?
Seems like the PlayStation 3 isn't mentioned.
A Wii could not handle it's games anyways :)

jony_dols3751d ago

If you want a Wii HD equivalent, with a better library of games and proper multimedia functions then just buy a PS3 and a Move controller (which will be cheap as chips by the end of 2012)

Zashule3751d ago

PS3 is PPC architecture.
X360 is x86 architecture.
PC is x86/x64 architecture.

Which would be the easiest to make multiplat? I take this to mean that Cafe will be x86/x64 architecture.

duplissi3751d ago

actually the xbox is also ppc.... it uses a triple core ibm ppc based processor called the xenon.

zeddy3751d ago

Easy portability from PC, Xbox 360? would nintendo really say that? i dont think so. its fake and as soon as the rumours started this was inevitable.

Aloren3751d ago

@jaosobno

Why does this make you conclude that this wii2 will be equal in power to the 360 ? it just means that it will have a similar architecture, just like a 360 is close to a PC (architecturally). So that means really easy port from PC/360, and obviously, more "hardcore" games since most multiplat games are likely to relase on this new console (at least until the PS4 and next xbox are released).

GUYwhoPLAYSvideoGAME3751d ago (Edited 3751d ago )

yep, works... those are going to be butt expensive controllers

Dart893751d ago

Hmm very intrigued guess we'll find out during E3.

BeastlyRig3751d ago (Edited 3751d ago )

It says it easily ports from pc & 360 but no ps3.. hmmm maybe it uses direct 3d then.

Pandamobile3751d ago

Most likely means that it just uses a conventional CPU/GPU combo rather than some crazy hybrid approach.
