In 5-6 years, it could be affordable. Although i still think it's BS. Still, one can hope.

#11 Edited by silversix_ (14331 posts) -

That would be the first good Nintendo news since the rumors of Revolution back in 03 or whatever

#12 Posted by l34052 (3169 posts) -

Maybe internally they're working on the next console but they certainly wouldnt be releasing info like this just yet while the current console is only a year or so old .

#13 Edited by FoxbatAlpha (6898 posts) -

This seems like a hype feeler they put out to see how much response they could drum up if it actually would come to be.

I think we would still be faced with the same Nintendo problems with devs scared to put a game out on it.

What do you think Peach?

Interesting specs, but with lots of holes in it. Nintendo is not capable of releasing a console this powerfull, not until 2020 at least. This is BS.

A powerfull GPU that needs a 500W+ powersupply is not gonna happen in a Nintendo console.

DDR4 as unified memory on a GPU that powerfull sounds weird, and only 4GB. Should be GDDR5 or 6 if available. The 2 GB DDR3 is for the WiiU I assume.

WiiU hardware for BC is just wasted costs.

PowerPC CPU does'nt sound smart if your goal is low power consumption. A complete APU solution from AMD would be smarter.

Dude those specs kinda feel unreal, especially for Nintendo... of course you never know how much progress technology will make in like 4-5 years... but yea... those news are bullsh1t

#20 Posted by DarkGamer007 (6029 posts) -

Fake, though I must admit that controller concept is pretty damn awesome, and I can imagine that Nintendo's next generation system will likely feature a similarly designed controlled.

@Martin_G_N: WHAT WHAT PLANET ARE YOU ON , IF SONY AND CAN MAKE A CONSOLE THIS POWERFUL TODAY WHY CANT NINTENDO CARE TO EXPLAIN , THIS IS COMING 3 YRS FROM NOW THE USUAL 5 YR LIFE SPAN OF NINTENDO CONSOLES MIND YOU , SO WHY NOT? WHAT DOES IT SCARE YOU KNOWING YOUR BELOVED PS4 X1 HAVE 8 YRS ON THE MARKET LEAVING NINTENDO 5 more yrs and still theywill have a console out when the next ones come , is that what scares you to know what i said is actually about to happen ?

i ve been saying ms took to long w 360 along time ago , , now its gonna bite both them and sony in the long run , , , ,

this sounds about right 2-3 yes time wii 3 comes out , -wiiu will be 5 yrs by then , if ms and sony decide 8 yrs again to come up with ps5 and what ever , its their doing not nintendos , and frankly im all for it , i could use another console would be a nice substitute for ps4 if they just keep wiiu out and sell this for people who like the better visuals and such sell wiiu to those who dont care , and want games, either way , nintendos a step ahead now, thanks to the decision making on sony and ms last gen

Yeah, it would seem like it :S

Ah well...regardless it's too soon for us to even think about next-gen consoles. This gen has barely started.

Unfortunately, assuming this news is accurate, Nintendo won't be able to release this for at least another 4 years, unless they intend to screw over all those who bought a Wii U. And if that were the case, it would be very entertaining indeed

#27 Posted by FireEmblem_Man (8715 posts) -

It is full of salts, but I kind of like where the next handheld will be. Then again, they need it to be cheap, efficient, and fun so I'm expecting PSVita like specs for under $200 for the next handheld and dropped 3D all together.

#28 Posted by PhazonBlazer (11732 posts) -

I thought this was something about Metroid Fusion HD or something. Now that would have been awesome.

#29 Edited by Ghost120x (3815 posts) -

I think the next handheld specs will be close to what the vita is offering now, which isn't a bad thing.

#30 Edited by Epak_ (6779 posts) -

I hope Nintendo would do something radical, like release a beastly console to compete with PS4 and Xbone.

#31 Posted by emgesp (2125 posts) -

6GB's of ram in a console coming out in 3 yrs time? Yeah, that totally makes sense. LOL, only an idiot would believe this rumor.

#32 Edited by _Matt_ (8908 posts) -

At least put some effort into thinking up the codenames to make it seem more legit.

Could not stop laughing at the dodgy codenames. And the specs are amusing too.

Good for the TC for linking Shokio's site, and not that fraud site that plagiarized the article from them.

You do realize that Sony has already said that the PS4 is not going to last as long as the PS3 and they arent going to wait 7 years to announce PS5 right?

#34 Posted by sailor232 (4612 posts) -

Remember Nintendo never learn from their mistakes, look forward to another under powered system with a different controller that only suites Nintendo's first party. I'm expecting something similar to the Xbox One for Nintendo's next gen device but with maybe less ram, 6gigs ddr3, still no hard drive.

sheep still alive ?

#36 Posted by remiks00 (1827 posts) -

Preorder Canceled

#37 Edited by no-scope-AK47 (2780 posts) -

How much is the real question here and will it have 3rd party support??

How about the online part ??

How about the hard drive ??

Will is have a wild control setup ??

These are the questions that nintendo has gotten wrong in the past. Unless the leadership is changed I doubt the right choices will be made on these important issues.

#38 Edited by DocSanchez (1590 posts) -

The same rumours about how Wii U was going to be all powerful etc etc etc?

I've heard them all before. It's not going to happen.

#39 Posted by AtariKidX (6254 posts) -

It's not going to happen.........because this it will be the end of the WiiU.

Okey!!? First of, Nintendo's priorities will have to change if this will in fact be the next Nintendo console within a few years. Secondly, looking at the previous Nintendo consoles, they're tech department is a joke. Nintendo had no problems this gen to make a console as powerfull as the PS4 and X1, since they are not as technically advanced for it's time like the X360 and PS3 was. But no way is Nintendo capable, or willing to make a console 3 times as powerfull within the next 3-5 years.

TBH, I saw it posted first in Neogaf, maybe TC stole the story? Anyways, lulzy story.

Btw, I think mariokart64fan needs a SW hug, lets give him some! =)

#43 Edited by hanman9 (371 posts) -

@Giancar: Actually....... The original specs report came from Gaminrealm.com, then submitted to N4G.com by Shokio. Nintendonews.com then blantantly plagiarised the article claiming the material came from their own sources.... Claiming the credit and the clicks.

Here's Shokio's proof...
