Wii to be replaced!

Allegedly Among Handful of Third Parties with New Tech

The website Gameolosophy, which claims a pretty good track record of late with breaking Nintendo news, is citing several reliable sources in claiming that Sega, among other key third party developers, already have their hands on the developer kit for the next Nintendo console.

The other third parties cited in the story are Sega, Square Enix, Capcom, EA, Take Two, and Namco, among others. The article claims all mentioned have at least one game in development for the next system.

But before you get excited about seeing Sonic Generations or anything like that on the yet to be revealed console, the article also states Nintendo will focus on the 3DS both at E3 in a month and a half, and in the coming Holiday season…making any sort of system launch in 2011 less likely.

We’ll keep this as rumor for now, though with multiple reports at least affirming the existence of a new Nintendo console, it may not be a matter of if the above is confirmed, but when.
They will Also be using the Amiga System!

There are tons of pics floating around of possible designs. THe controller is the special thing.

Take a classic controller and add a 6" LCD touchscreen to the middle of it. The controllers will be both Bluetooth and 2.4GHz wifi. So when playing the game you can stream things to the touchpad. So for every game the controllers screen will be different. Might just do mini games for some, might be an intricate part to controlling for others games.

Super excited about this. XD SUPER

Not really shocking, the Wii is pretty old now and not being HDMI capable is really getting annoying.

Last rumor I saw was that it will probably be ANNOUNCED at E3 but likely not ship for quite a while. (sony and MS both plan to go through 2014 with their current consoles)

Since we got our Wii mostly for the streaming of Netflix, the only thing that might make me excited about a new one is if it actually upgrades to BluRay, so that it takes care of several needs in my A/V cabinet, and saves me some space. Otherwise, *shrug* eh.

Finally we can get some decent first person shooters on a Nintendo. Heck, with the screens on the controllers you could turn off the big TV and eliminate the cries of "hey, you were looking at my screen".
