I hope/think they'll put a new console out or at least talk about it during e3. the 3ds just dropped though, So i think they could wait another year before announcing.
the wii is in kind of a dry spell, no new games that are worth buying during spring? I ordered other M, not sure who tweeted the sale but thanks.
Nice, glad you grabbed Other M. I had to spread the love when I saw it was 15 dollars. Like I said, it's not the best Metroid game, but it's certainly a very good game regardless.
Word on the street is that Nintendo is going to make a soft announcement of the new console next week on the 25th (which would be the 26th in Japan at the time of the business briefing or whatever it is they're having). It makes sense, they did the same exact thing when 3DS rumors broke out right before they announced it.
Wii 2(HD) whatever you want to call it is probably very far along in development. Looking at the big picture, it makes sense. Internally, Nintendo hasn't put out a Wii game since New SMBW, and the only other one we know of is Zelda. It is pretty clear they've moved on from Wii and have to be working on Wii 2 software for a long time.
It's crazy, I honestly thought E3 would just tease the new console (like they teased Revolution before its big show the following year) and focus on 3DS again, but it looks like this new console is going to be their big thing.
Though I don't care about graphics too much (of course i love great ones) I do hope that this machine is above what 360 and PS3 can do. I'm positive it'll be of equal power, but it needs to be more than it. It needs to be able to compete with whatever they do next to some capacity if they really want third party games on there.
