More new rumors from IGN:

-Pricing between $350 to $400.
-Could be released this year between mid-October and early November.
-Additionally, IGN has learned that the system will be based on a revamped version of AMD's R700 GPU architecture, not AMD's Fusion technology as previously believed, which will, as previously reported, out perform the PlayStation 3's NVIDIA 7800GTX-based processor. Like the Xbox 360, the system's CPU will be a custom-built triple-core IBM PowerPC chipset, but the clocking speeds will be faster. The system will support 1080p output with the potential for stereoscopic 3D as well, though it has not been determined whether that will be a staple feature.
-Console design comparable to that of the original Xbox 360 and the system is likely to resemble a modernized version of the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES).
-Possible name : Nintendo Stream.

I would not be surprised to see something along with social gaming for the online features. From the rumors, Nintendo is mixing Facebook and iPad. But then again all codes names don't have anything to do with the final name.

Project Reality = N64
Project Dolphin = GameCube
Project Nitro = Nintendo DS
Project Atlantis = GameBoy Advance
Project Revolution = Wii

[QUOTE="chris3116"]

I think it's real just the fact Retro Studios is a 1st party developer.

Nintendo_Ownes7

Don't you mean 2nd party developer, 1st party would be Nintendo themselves.

I wouldn't be surprised if all developers under Nintendo are working on somthing for the next console.

They are 1st Party as they are wholly owned by Nintendo.

It is 2nd Party if Nintendo owns more then 51% but less then 100% of a company or if they were under contract with Nintendo.

2nd party is more like a 3rd party developer that mostly developes on 1 console like Monster games with Excite games (Excite Truck, Excitebots) and Pilotwings on 3DS. They're not owned by Nintendo but they develop on mostly Nintendo consoles.

And yes, Retro Studios is fully owned by Nintendo.

More rumors :

Retro Studio is coming with something on Cafe and it's a title that everyone wants them to do (Star Fox, F-Zero?) : http://paulgalenetwork.com/home/2011/04/18/retro-studios-working-on-a-project-everyone-wants-us-to-do-on-wii-2/

To boost this rumor, Retro is proceding to hire some people : http://www.nintendoworldreport.com/news/26104.

Others rumors:

  • Square Enix, Capcom, Sega, Konami, Activision, Rockstar/Take Two, Electronic Arts, Namcoand Ubisoft all have development kits.
  • They each have at least one game in development for the Wii 2.
  • Expect games to be coming to this system that you would never expect on a Nintendo console.
  • Nintendois kissing third party ****s with this console.
  • The new Nintendo controller sounds more ridiculous on paper. When you actually see the thing, it makes a lot more sense from a design standard.
  • Expect Nintendo to roll out the red carpet for third parties so their games don't get overshadowed. Nintendo has been preaching to third parties that third parties won't get screwed this time around, so if you're expecting a ton of amazing first party games at launch…well…think again. Nintendo wants a launch that creates confidence in third parties again so expect very few first party games at launch similar to the 3DS.
  • Star Fox is coming. I can't say when. Very good chance that it WONT be at E3. I am hearing Star Fox is coming for the new Nintendo system, but it is very early in development.
  • Nintendo solvedevery storage issue a third party could possibly have with the new console. I don't know if it's a harddrive or a different, cheaper way to store data.
  • Nintendo revamping their WiiWare and virtual consoleservices. I don't think it will be called WiiWare anymore.
  • Almost positive that we'll be seeing Pikmin in some shape or form.
  • A first person shooter that people love will be ported to the 3DS. I can't say what game, but it's popular among FPS gamers.
  • Expect a crapload of 3DS love at this E3. The show will be wayyy more 3DS than Wii 2 (Project Cafe). 3DS stuff will be at least 60 percent of the E3 pre-show.
  • Don't listen to anyone who says new Nintendo console will launch by end of 2011. They are idiots. This holiday season is all about the 3DS and Nintendo's E3 show will focus on that.
  • Don't expect many games to be shown at E3 for new Nintendo console, but expect all of the key features to be revealed.
  • Nintendo is thinking about launching Zelda: Skyward Sword around the same time as Wii 2 since Wii 2 is backwards compatible with Wii 1 games. They want to follow the same strategy when they launched Pokemon Black/White when 3DS was coming out.
  • I am 90 percent sure you will not see a Zelda: Skyward Sword port to the Wii 2. It will remain a Wii 1 game.
  • Nintendo approached Hideo Kojima about the new Nintendo console. Nintendo and Hideo Kojimahave a good relationship with each other.
  • A Resident Evil game is in development for the new Nintendo system. I don't know if Capcom is developing an RE spinoff or something part of the "main" Resident Evil series.
  • Retrostudios started working on a Wii 2 game. It is NOT Metroid. Retro is done with Metroid.

NINTENDO DOWNLOAD: MEGA MAN X MARKS THE SPOT FOR NINTENDO'S LATEST DOWNLOADABLE GAME LINEUP

April 18, 2011

Originally released in 1994 for the Super NES™ console, Mega Man™ X is widely recognized as a ****c of the 16-bit gaming era. Starting this week, Wii™ owners can discover – or rediscover – the game's timeless platforming fun via the Virtual Console™ service. For a different brand of retro-**** action with a contemporary twist, players can also try out a demo version of BIT.TRIP CORE, now available for download on the WiiWare™ service for zero Wii Points™. Meanwhile, new hand-held game offerings for the Nintendo DSiWare™ service include GO Series Captain Sub, a treasure-seeking underwater adventure that can be enjoyed anytime, anywhere on the portable Nintendo DSi™ system.

Description: The future of Mega Man has arrived. Hundreds of years after his death, Dr. Light's final creation is discovered. Released from his capsule by Dr. Cain, X is born into a future world where robot rebellions are a thing of the past. But when Dr. Cain tries to implement Dr. Light's designs into a new series of Reploids, something goes horribly wrong. Now the future lies on the brink of destruction, and X must use all of his newfound powers and abilities to hunt down the maverick Reploids and their leader, Sigma, before the human race is wiped from the planet.

WiiWare

Players: 1
ESRB Rating: E (Everyone)
Price: 600 Wii Points
Description: Have you always dreamed of having a cute little baby to lovingly care for? Now is your chance. Your little bundle of joy smiles at you gleefully, and you have to do everything you can to make sure it develops and grows in a healthy manner. Changing, bathing and feeding are as much a part of your duties as shopping, preparing meals, rocking your baby to sleep, playtime, dressing and teaching it to crawl and walk. But above all, what your little angel needs is your love and attention. All this, plus an enormous selection of toys, clothes and other objects, will make your little one the happiest baby in the whole wide world.

BIT.TRIP CORE (demo version)
Publisher:
Aksys Games
Players: 1-2
ESRB Rating: E (Everyone)

Description: BIT.TRIP CORE continues the BIT.TRIP saga in this retro-arcade-****game. BIT.TRIP COREis an exciting action/rhythm game that's best played while zoning out on the tunes and letting the visuals swallow you whole. The experience is inspired by games from the '80s, but with a modern twist. The game play is entirely new to the series, leaving the single-axis controls of BIT.TRIP BEAT behind in favor of the ability to control two axes. If the difficulty gets you down, grab a friend and play cooperatively in two-player multiplayer mode. (Additional controllers are required for multiplayer features and are sold separately.)

Note: Some demo versions do not support all game features, and players cannot save their in-game progress in demo versions.

With all these crazy rumors, Nintendo will have to talk with its investors.

BTW, E3 is on June 7-9 this year.

[QUOTE="chris3116"]

Could the 3DS be used as a controller? Ono speculates that Street Fighter IV would have some connectivity with a new Home console and being portable at the same time.

http://gonintendo.com/viewstory.php?id=154340

If so, could we see a huge connectivity to see eShop from the 3DS being at the same time on Project Cafe? Maybe that's why the eShop is not avaible right now on 3DS.

sonic_spark

Sounds interesting. I think it's a given one way or another that the 3DS will have connectivity with the "Wii2".

It could be NGP/PS3 connectivity. The only portable Super Street Fighter IV is the 3DS game. But I'll say it's a rumor to be considered for Project Cafe.

However, the eShop cross-platform is my speculation.
