RUMOR - Multiple sources confirm new Nintendo console, HD visuals with a late 2012 launch, devs already at work, E3 reveal

GN Version 3.1

The following information comes from Game Informer…

- new system is capable of running games at HD resolutions
- system may either fall short of or surpass 360/PS3 in graphics, but it will be competitive
- Nintendo is already showing publishers the system
- late 2012 launch
- no word on backwards compatibility
- no word on ‘Wii’ being in the name
- when Nintendo was approached with this information, they were told that Nintendo won’t comment on their E3 plans, but “stay tuned”

“Nintendo is doing this one right. [It’s] not a gimmick like the Wii.” - anonymous source

We’re also hearing the same sort of information from another source. The only major difference between the two articles is discussion of another new controller. Thanks to Alexandre for the heads up!

Update - Now we’re hearing the system will indeed be more powerful than 360/PS3
