Report: Nintendo to Announce New HD Console at E3
With the introduction of motion controls on 360 and PS3, all that makes the Wii unique, aside from first-party Nintendo games, is slipping away. Also, that stupid thing doesn’t output in HD. We’ve heard speculation that Nintendo is ready to start rolling out the red carpet for a new console at E3 this year, and now Game Informer has “multiple sources” who say they will, in fact, announce a new console at this year’s E3. The purported console will be HD, naturally, and the sources are conflicted over whether or not it will be as powerful as the 360 or PS3. Here’s a quote from one source: “[It's] not a gimmick like the Wii.”
That is 100% of the information coming from the GI sources. Don’t be impatient: E3 is less than two months away, so we’ll find out soon enough exactly what’s going on. And we’ll probably have a pretty good idea before that, even, as more insiders hype it up.
