so after the "siginificantly more powerful than the PS3" we're back to "only slightly above 360"? This is going to be a repeat of this gen all over with Nintendo being once again wayunderpowered. And they want to recapture the hardcore by doing the same thing again?

Also If it is indeed comparable to the 360/PS3 then why the hell wait till late 2012? They should release it as soon as possible like Holidays 2011. The new console could launch with big multiplatform games like BF3, Skyrim...etc + a big Nintendo exclusive. If it's the former, chances are both Sony and Microsoft might show something about their next console during E3 2012 which could hurt the hype for the Wii2.

If it's quite a bit more powerful than both consoles then no problem with a late 2012 release, but if it is indeed comparable, releasing it this year would be ideal.

The thing is both Sony and Microsoft are not in position to release something in short time. Sony just began to make profits on PS3. Revealing a new console could be a disaster for the shareholders and Sony would lose again more money. Microsoft just released the Kinect which resurects the console and from what I read if it's true they just began to make research on the next console.Don't forget the 8 billions lost on the RROD fiasco.

Nintendo is not fighting against Microsoft and Sony. It's Apple the threat.

Yes I remember this. Nintendo partly owns the technology. I have a feeling it will be the storage of Project Cafe.

I can't see that happens. The GameCube and Wii games are not emulated very well yet.

I can see VC/Wiiware games to be on Shop Channel / eShop on the next console like the DSiWare games on 3DS.

I don't know if it was posted but it seems Pikmin 3 is now a Project Cafe title and Nintendo courting Rockstar : http://gonintendo.com/viewstory.php?id=155973

Of course it's a rumour.

Yes, Yes. I know. Rumors. Heck, FRENCH rumors!

But it's fun to speculate. I know a lot of people don't see how a touch screen would help console gaming. I see endless possiblities. This is friggin' Nintendo we're talking about. They will surprise us. I'm confident enough to just say "Go With It Ninty" because I know, if nothing else, they are already 100% sure this will open up new crazy ways to play games on home consoles. If there is a screen at all in the controller, they wouldn't put it in the final product if they weren't sure they had some awesome ideas.

I think it would be cool for swapping through Menu's on the fly, or aiming in some games, moving puzzle pieces, etc. Also, the motion controls are built into the controller and are said to not need the sensor bar. Costs are described as "modest". Yea, this is Nintendo.

Guys, a screen in a controller, if done by Nintendo, wouldn't cost more than, I dunno $50ish at retail per controller, so it is feasible.

Here is the rumor round up here

The controller itself is said to include a 6" single touch screen, d-pad, "L and R," two triggers, and "others." The functionality of the Wii's sensor bar has now been integrated into the controller, which would mean that you'd just use your controller as a sensor bar for Wiimote gameplay. It would a sport a front facing camera.

Here is the original postinghttp://www.destructoid.com/more-nintendo-console-rumors-about-hardware-touchscreen-198922.phtml

Thoughts?

Personally, I'm hyped. I don't want to wait until Fall 2012, but I know I must. Zelda for Wii this fall, maybe Pikmin in the Spring 2012, and then new consoles time! Though, I'm hopeful for a 3DS-esque March/April release.

EDIT: By the way, this comes from the sources who leaked the NGP, and got it right. It's looking legit guys, sorry if it isn't what you wanted to hear. Things could change of course. Also, it states it's pretty much going to be a slightly more powerful 360 in terms of hardware power on the console itself.

Basically, it's what I said on the other thread about the controller with the screen. It's supposed to be like the iOS (iPad, iPhone) touch screen. Since Iwata said that he loves Apple on many times, he probably thinks we're going to copy the product.Basically, Nintendo wants to battle Apple now not Sony or Microsoft.

Why use the term ipad, why not tablet. After all Apple did not invent the tablet.Crystal-Rush

True but it's probably the most popular tablet in the market.

Basically if it's true, Nintendo wants to compete against the touch screen of the iOS platforms. How would it work? I have no idea. I heard that some iOS games are a pain to control. I still hope it has buttons.

BTW, the next console has the ability to play Wii games so the Wiimote and Nunchuk is about to return.

I said this many times. Talk this year and release it next year. In November, Wii will have 5 years. Nintendo has the same cycle about talking or releasing new hardware after 5 years. I'm not surprised.

Most Wii games from Nintendo are already at 60 FPS like Super Mario Galaxy 1 & 2. The resolution means nothing.

With the June 13 launch of Wii Play: Motion, Wii owners will be twisting, turning and enjoying themselves like never before, whether they're newcomers to the console or have already discovered the fun of the popular Wii Play game. From catching a gust of wind by tilting an umbrella to fending off garden pests by swinging a mallet, each of the 12 included games will have players smiling wide as they use their Wii Remote Plus controller (or Wii Remote with Wii MotionPlus™ accessory) in a variety of interesting, sometimes unexpected ways. Wii Play: Motion comes packaged with a Wii Remote Plus controller – which combines the original Wii Remote controller with the precision of Wii MotionPlus – to deliver great value, precise motion control and immersive social fun that anyone in the household can pick up and instantly enjoy.

About the other new Wii game : Mystery Case Files: Dust to Dust

Mystery Case Files: Dust to Dust brings the intrigue and sleuthing of Big Fish Games' Mystery Case Files series to the Wii system for the first time. The game transports players to the enigmatic Malgrave Island, where they must hunt for hidden objects and solve puzzles to collect a magically powerful dust scattered across the island. Anyone can delve quickly and easily into the game's rich seek-and-solve action, using the Wii Remote controller to examine multi-layered hidden-object scenes, locate cleverly concealed items and obtain inventory items that will help to overcome brain-teasing obstacles. Multiplayer features allow players to team up and crack the case together or face off in a competitive hunt for hidden objects. (Additional controllers are required for multiplayer features and are sold separately.) No matter who's playing, it'll take sharp eyes and a keen mind to get to the bottom of Mystery Case Files: Dust to Dust.

My predictions on the next console:

1-Will be in HD maybe 3D.
2-Motion controls will stay. The vitality sensor will be part on the next controller.
3-Transferable VC/Wiiware games to the next console will happen like DSiWare games on 3DS.
4-Friend codes to stay but it will be universal like the 3DS.
5-Holographic storage (since Nintendo partly ownsthe technology)
6-Unless there's no Broadway and no Hollywood chips, it will be backwards compatible to Wii games but not on GameCube games.
