There are a lot of rumors going around the internet that Nintendo is planning on unveiling a new console at this year’s E3 in June. This is great news as I feel the Wii has run it’s course, I haven’t touched mine in at least a year. The new system is rumored to be going by the codename “Project Cafe”, and will be significantly more powerful than the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360. It is also rumored to have a new controller that features a 6″ touch screen, with dual analog sticks, triggers and of course buttons. Players will be able to stream games and content from the console to the controller, which should make for some really interesting games and gameplay. If any of you played Legend of Zelda 4: Swords or Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles on the Gamecube which made use of Gamecube-Gameboy connectivity you can imagine how this new controller will function. If all this is true Nintendo just might recapture some of the hardcore market who left them for other more powerful systems. Now let’s just pray that they get rid of the Friend Code and have an actual online gaming community set up like Xbox Live or Playstation home.
Wii 2 “Project Cafe” !?!
