Sources Confirm New Nintendo Console For E3

Sources confirm the E3 announcement of a new Nintendo Console that supports HD.

Earlier this week, we reported on how trusted sources confirmed the Nintendo Wii was getting a price drop to $150 in mid-May, just weeks before the Entertainment and Electronics Expo (E3) in June. This was strange news, as companies like Nintendo tend to reserve announcements like this for the kind of large conferences and trade shows (like, you know, E3), so why would they do something like that? In the article linked above, I hypothesized that they must be planning on releasing a new system- and I was right!

Game Informer reported today that multiple sources have confirmed the impending E3 announcement of a new Nintendo Console. Very little is known about the system outside of gross speculation, but the same sources confirmed that this console will be HD compatible, a great move for Nintendo in strengthening its historically-poor relations with third-party developers. In the Game Informer article, one source was said to have described the system as "not gimmicky, like the Wii". I for one love the Wii, and any gimmicky aspects were overshadowed by how accessible, entertaining, and esthetically pleasing the interface and gameplay was for the majority of the games, but I kinda get where they're coming from.

 

Evidently Nintendo is already demonstrating the new system to possible publishers in an effort to get them prepared for its reported late 2012 launch- hopefully we see the "Nintendo HD" before the world goes tits up in December. Either way, E3 just got a bit more exciting.
