Nintendo's new controller has been revealed, a touchscreen-based device that works with all-new, high-definition hardware. This is our first official look at Wii U.
I played Nintendo's Wii U earlier this week, the exciting successor to the Wii that not only plays a lot like the Wii—now with a new, unique twist—but a console that plays nicely with the Wii controllers and accessories you already have.
And to go along with the new controller, the first look at Nintendo's new console hardware. More details soon!
Here it is, folks. Your first look at Nintendo's new controller. Tons more detail to come. (And here's the Wii U console.)
With Nintendo showing off their latest and greatest console during their E3 2011 press conference this morning, this is a ridiculously long line that pretty much everyone wants to be in.
Well, we're pretty damn sure that Nintendo's next console isn't called "Beem," but what if Nintendo were crazy enough to not give it a name at all and just call it simply "Nintendo"?
We've heard that the touch-screen controllers used in Nintendo's next home console will have a camera. It appears that California-based OmniVision, who among others works with Apple on its iPhones, may be supplying those cameras.
E3 is the biggest event the video game business. Every company lays their cards on the table, and every AAA game for the next year is on display. Failure is not an option.
Mario does not approve. Sketch comedy group 20 Second Power-Up created this clip as a sort of "bizarre Marvel Comics 'What If?' scenario" celebrating the impending unveiling of the next Nintendo console. Here's hoping they're way off the mark.
Fans eager for latest news on the next Nintendo console and the games coming out for it can tune into Nintendo's E3 website starting June 7, where the company will be streaming its 2011 media event live at 9AM Pacific.
For those who checked the internet when the Xbox 360, PS3 or Wii launched, you'll remember the fake "secret presentation" photos. They were typically either bad photoshops or bad photos showing new hardware presentations.
According to the French publisher's CEO, not only is Nintendo's Wii successor—currently known as Project Cafe—a "fantastic platform," it's also bound to be home to many a port from the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
As the wheels of Nintendo's next console slowly begin to spin, commenter Wrackune suggests the Wii is the greatest Nintendo console gifted to man thus far in today's Speak-Up on Kotaku.
The successor to the Wii will not include a traditional hard-drive but will bear some of the traits of competing high-definition game consoles, according to sources familiar with Nintendo's planned 2012 gaming machine.
Nintendo is making a new video game console. Rumors state that the console has a touch screen—something Kotaku has confirmed with its own industry sources.
For a console with an impressive install base of more 86 million, you might think that Nintendo wouldn't have any regrets about the Wii. But Nintendo's CEO says he does have one regret, one that he intends to address in the future.
You've seen our buddy Sam Spratt give us his take on the next Nintendo console's controllers and appearance, but what about you, dear reader? What about our more talented reader's takes?
Well, besides the fact that Wii sales are on a downward slide, Wii games don't look good on HD televisions and the console is starting to show its age. Besides all that, there must be a reason.
There may be no clear winner in this generation's console wars, but there is definitely a clear loser, at least according to the people that broke into my apartment this weekend and stole every piece of electronic equipment they could get their hands on.
And if it is a Photoshop, it's starting to seem like the phonies are copying images that could very well be phony. Fantasy feeding fantasy! [Thanks everyone who sent this in!] [Update: Added a second image. Then fixed my post, because I screwed it up. –Joel]
