We've been playing the same old Wii since 2006, which makes the calls for Nintendo to create a new Wii—Wii HD! Wii 2? Wii-As-Powerful-As-The-Xbox-360!?!—about... four years old. As recently as last November, Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime was telling Kotaku that it wasn't time to talk about a new Wii…
Stephen Totilo takes you on a whirlwind tour of Nintendo's latest play for the living room, the touchscreen-and-motion-control Wii U.
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.)
We're here down front at Nintendo's 2011 E3 press conference. This is the last of the big press conferences of this E3. And with Nintendo's next big console expected to be unveiled and detailed, perhaps it will be the best as well.
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 don't know the official name for Nintendo's next console yet, but consider "Beem" to be an unlikely candidate. Internet sleuths have been piecing together web registration details, and they thought, for a moment, that "Beem" is it.
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.
According to an "insider", a report on Develop is claiming that Nintendo's next home console will ship with a controller that features a front-facing camera. Just like the DSi and 3DS.
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.
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.
