[up][up]Yes, I admit that people may very well think of that, but why did you mention a hobo, and why was he peeing in his pants specifically?

[up]Try thinking of "Wii Stream" as "A stream of wee". That's the entirety of the toilet humor here.

Lurks too much
Also, Sabbo's pic on the last page made me giggle, because it reminded me of the strange launch ads for Infiniti back in 1989 or so.
Taking suggestions for a new sig. PM me or something!
This is apparently what it looks like.

Rumors posted by Kotaku Joystiq state:

  • Codename is ‘Project Cafe‘
  • Controller will include a touch screen (latest rumors today measured it at 6.2inches)
  • Hardware is similar to the Xbox360
  • Controller has a built-in front-facing camera
  • Features backwards Wii game compatibility
  • 8 buttons and 2 analog sticks

^I can't decide my opinion on the project name.(if that is true)
Time to change the style, for now

I love poorly fabricated rumors <3
A guy called dvorak is tired. Tired of humanity not wanting to change to improve itself. Quite the sad tale.

[up][up]Seriously, IGN is acting like 2/3 of this is confirmed.

They also have an anonymous source (to us, not to them) giving them information. While they're almost certainly not right about most of it, they're probably not too far off.
...for this night and all the nights to come.
Fart. My Wii is having problems reading dual-layered discs, I'm trying to replace my PS2, I haven't any money for the 3DS, and NOW they're announcing a better Wii console? The timing couldn't have been worse for me. (> m <)

New console at e3 pretty much confirmed by Nintendo themselves.

Anyway, think about all the stuff we've heard so far, assuming that it is indeed true - it's a mixture of Nintendo's efforts starting from Four Swords Adventures, and stealing the thunder of one of the NGP's features. The idea of being able to have portable screens for each player would be rather clever, and for single-player, there's still the option to play your games in front of a big screen. You can play Cafe games anywhere in the house (including bathroom breaks), and if you can be bothered to take the console with you, anywhere with a power source - HD gaming while negating the need for a HD TV. Brilliant.
That sounds a bit redundant to the 3DS, especially if the controllers are available as their own SKU, and act like a really cheesy mobile console.

Eric,

Not really. Sure, it's more portable just on the very notion that you won't need a TV, but if the console is as large as the 360 as the rumors claim, you obviously wouldn't be using it on car trips.

Anyway, official information about the new console from Nintendo:

  • Tentative release date of June 2012.
  • Controller screen resolution of 800x500.
  • Can play games, watch movies, and more without turning on the TV by just streaming them to the controllers. Can stream to multiple controllers at once.
  • Each controller acts a terminal, with the console doing all of the calculations to reduce latency, controller cost, and bandwidth requirements.

Wow, that source doesn't look easy to fake at all.
People say I have a problem with authority. I say that authority has a problem with me.
This tiny forest is where all the action is!
Are you sarcastic?

It's Nintendo of Japan's website. A direct link to a file on it. Note the address.

[up]That page is real, but everything in Cronosonic's following post is completely sourceless. All the press release does say is:
  • Sometime in 2012, after the end of this fiscal year (March 2012), Nintendo will release a successor to the Wii.
  • There will be a playable demo of it at E3 this year.

Confirmed via press release. In English. To gaming journalists here in NA.

Yeah, that was bugging me as well, I managed to get the source. Turns out it was from GAF, though info from GAF is pretty hard to beat...

Though, the guy I got the source from says he's pretty sure the resolution was announced by Nintendo, he's just not sure when or where.

TSC is best palette. But monochrome's fine too.
Stream, eh? When I first read it I misread it as Steam and worried about the possible confusion. It does sound interesting. If true, this could be the next step towards the gamification of household electronics.

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
