New Nintendo console in 2017

New broken by Game Informer earlier today, though it's been rumored for a few months.

Initial reports is that it will be more powerful than the PS3/current gen 360s. It's doubtful it'll be more powerful than the next Microsoft/Sony consoles, but those aren't expected until 2013 at the earliest, possibly as late as 2014/15. So for at least a year, the new Nintendo will be the most powerful console on the market.

The console will make it's debut at this summer's E3, and will, as I said in the title, be on sale in 2012. Nintendo hasn't confirmed anything yet, but as I said, there's been a lot of smoke for a few months now; too much for there not to be a fire.

    Re: New Nintendo console in 2012

    From a business standpoint, I think this is pretty brilliant from Nintendo. The Wii, just from third-party titles, has another 5 years or so in it's lifespan. It's been a casual gaming console for awhile now, so Nintendo is putting itself in a position to have the best-selling casual gamer console and a competitive hardcore gaming console on the market at the same time.

    Re: New Nintendo console in 2012

    Both Microsoft and Sony have job listings for new console development, so both are definitely getting started, but nothing to make us think that they're too far along. So like I said, I'd be shocked to see either of them get anything going before Summer/Fall 2013. Especially since Microsoft rolled out their new (S) models last year, and are putting in a lot of work on the 360 from the software side right now.

    That and the Mario franchise (and occasionally Metroid) are all Nintendo has to offer in my eyes.

    The rest of the games that are released on their systems are [disclaimer: generally] kiddie crap.

    Which is why this is so interesting: they're not stupid over there, they know what sells. I mean hell, Black Ops was on the Wii, and if the Wii didn't suck graphically and have terrible handling and online play, Black Ops probably would've been bigger on the Wii. But that's the console's fault.

    And, again, they're not stupid: they know that the Wii has a good life ahead of it. All of the casual gamers that play those "kiddie" games you mentioned will not be rushing out to upgrade from the Wii. So, like I said, we'll have to wait and see, but Nintendo has already shown they're fine letting M rated games on if they're making money, so there's a chance the Wii will continue as what it is, and this will be an "adult" console, they're first in forever.

    The Wii isn't a "gamers" system. It's an "everyone else"s system tho. Which is why it does and will do well.

    Oh yeah, I'm not knocking their business plan or marketing strategy at all. It's worked wonders for them!

    Playstation 1 had the best games of that generation of consoles...

    Metal Gear Solid
    Final Fantasy (7, 8, 9, Tactics)
    Silent Hill
    Madden 2000
    Tekken 3
    Castlevania: Symphony of the Night
    Resident Evil 2
    Twisted Metal
    Gran Turismo
    Tony Hawk
    etc

    SNES was Nintendo's best system.

    I FAR preferred N64 to PS1, even though PS1 had the far better game assortment. But Conker's Bad Fur Day is the best game I've ever played on any console.

    Hahaha yes!

    I lived for the:
    Mariokart
    Mario 64
    Super Smash Bros
    Starfox
    Donkey Kong 64 (this was actually too hard, never beat it)
    Banjo-Kazooie
    Goldeneye


    I wish Nintendo would go back to these games.

    The best games on Nintendo are always the best games for any system. The problem is Nintendo only gets 2-3 "best" games per console life cycle. Everything else is just better on other systems.

    Sounds like it will include Blu-ray support as well.
