Re: BREAKING NEWS - New Nintendo Console Announced

Not to nit pick or anything, but it does go with a new console, no maybes. From what I gathered, the controller streams from the new console to either a TV screen, or the controller (or both), and you don't need to use the stupid iPad rip-off, any current accessories will be workable.

The Wii U is the console, the controller is just the controller :P

Re: BREAKING NEWS - New Nintendo Console Announced

Where are you getting this info that there is a new console? Nobody said that in the entire event.

Re: BREAKING NEWS - New Nintendo Console Announced

just watched an interview with Nintendo, and they wouldn't disclose nothing about actual system specs, whats betting it will just be on par with current consoles?

also the information is everywhere. has been for past couple of days

Re: BREAKING NEWS - New Nintendo Console Announced

It's bottom right of the tv screen in the trailer.

That is just the controller, Nikkei have confirmed it, they confirmed the controllers details 2 days ago.

Re: BREAKING NEWS - New Nintendo Console Announced

I posted that, it could have possibly been the new console underneath the T.V. but do you really think Nintendo would be stupid enough to send that photo out with their final console design in it aswell, whilst noting nothing about it in the keynote?

Re: BREAKING NEWS - New Nintendo Controller Announced

yeah, cus they are not actually speaking about, its all about the controller again. Which makes me think the actual console itself is nothing special. just on par with 360 and ps3

Re: BREAKING NEWS - New Nintendo Controller Announced

I know the image was from Nintendo, that's what I said lol. The photos from Engaget mean nothing. Again, why would they show-off that console quite blatantly and not say anything about it if it's the final build?

Re: BREAKING NEWS - New Nintendo Controller Announced

We're going to have to agree to disagree. It's in every promotional trailer, every hands-on video, and everywhere is reporting it as the new console, thus, I believe it is the new console.

Re: BREAKING NEWS - New Nintendo Controller Announced

Bloody hell, Ginge. It's basically common knowledge already. Skip to 4 minutes in, quite blatant when she says "the new console and new controller."

Re: BREAKING NEWS - New Nintendo Controller Announced

OK, I'm not disputing that there isn't going to be a new console or that there is any build of that console, I'm disputing that what is under that T.V. ISN'T the final build!

Why would they show off the controller and not the console when it's the final build that they will be releasing next year!?

because its **** all special and nothing different from whats already on the market. Youd look really stupid getting up on stage at E3 and saying look our console is on par with other consoles that have been on the market for 5 years. so they are focusing attention on the controller instead.
