Now would be an appropriate time to use the expression, “megaton”. According to a number of major gaming news websites, the successor to the Wii is going to be announced at or before E3. The internet as a whole is abuzz at what could be the kick-off of the next generation. If you haven’t already heard the rumblings read through to the rest of this post!
Supposedly, this new Nintendo console is going to be notably more powerful than the XBOX 360 or PS3. In other words, yes, your games will run in HD. It will also have a brand new controller that has a screen in it, though there’s been no word on whether or not it’ll be a touch screen. My guess is yes, it will be a touch screen, but don’t quote me on that. Even though it’ll have a new controller, this new system is rumored to be backwards compatible with current Wii games. IGN also reports that this new Nintendo console is going to make a run at winning back the hardcore gamers that have abandoned them over the years.
Come 2012, when this system is supposedly going to be released, will you be in line for one? Are you excited by the prospects of a system with more horsepower and a screen in your controller? What do you think Microsoft or Sony have up their sleeves to counter? Let’s talk about it in the comments!
