Nintendo’s new HD Game Console is on it’s way, according to Gameinformer.com Ninetndo are set to announce the successor to the Wii at E3 this year, what will the Wii2 do, how powerful will it be? Will it be faster and better than the Xbox360 or the PS3, what “gimmick” will Nintendo innovate?
“we have confirmed with multiple sources that this new home system is capable of running games at HD resolutions. There are conflicting reports, however, as to whether its graphics will be comparable to those on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 – meaning it could surpass or fall short of those systems. Either way it will offer competitive specifications. Moving to HD should greatly help Nintendo and its new console in getting more multi-platform triple-A titles like Portal 2 or Mortal Kombat. This, in turn, will strengthen Nintendo’s historically poor relationship with third-party publishers/developers.”
“”Nintendo is doing this one right,” said an anonymous source. “[It’s] not a gimmick like the Wii.” What else, beyond graphics, this may imply about the system is unknown. What kind of controls the system will support (we imagine a need for both classic analog configurations and motion controllers) or what level of software and infrastructure Nintendo will provide for online gaming is also unknown. However, it’s a positive sign that the system might be more than just an HD Wii.” – gameinformer.com
