What do you guys and gals think about Nintendo trying to join the rest of the gaming world?

http://kotaku.com/#!5792165/new-nintendo-console-debuting-at-e3-launching-in-2012-more-powerful-than-xbox-360-and-ps3
EDIT: I can't make that URL work right, so it is what it is, but here's the whole story.

Nintendo's next console will debut at E3 in June, moving the maker of Mario and Zelda into the HD era. The news, first reported by Game Informer today, confirms rumors that have been swirling for months in the wake of slowing game releases from Nintendo.

Furthermore, we've heard that the machine will be more powerful than current-gen systems, meaning Nintendo, currently backing a Wii that is weaker in horsepower than the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, will be showing a new console that is more powerful than those current competitors.

We've asked Nintendo for comment and will let you know if they shock us and spill the beans. Update: Nintendo responded to our inquiry with a standard "Nintendo does not comment on rumor or speculation".

E3 kicks off on June 7, though Nintendo's E3 press conference may occur the day before, if tradition holds.

Just pack the whole link between [url] and [/url]. That'll do the trick.

Also, eh.

Not sure how I feel about that controller screen.

http://wii.ign.com/articles/116/1162045p1.html

New details have surfaced from yesterday's reports that Nintendo is set to unveil its newest console, codenamed "Project Cafe."

According to our sources, the new Nintendo controller will feature dual analog sticks in addition to standard d-pad and trigger buttons. It'll mirror a Gamecube controller in general function but not in specific form.

French website 01.net has published additional details (via Develop), that say the touch capable screen on the controller is 6 inches in size, but we were unable to confirm the accuracy of the report. Additional details about the console's hardware specs could also not be confirmed.

Players will actually be able to stream game content to the controller screen from the console. It's unclear at this time what type of content it will be, whether it's full games you can take with you on the go, mini-games or applications.

At E3 in June, our sources also said Nintendo will show first and third party titles at the event, but it's unsure if they'll be playable or only in video form.

Update: Sources now confirm to IGN the new Nintendo controller allows players to stream entire games to the device from the console, saying it's like a miniature television. The screen size on the controller is also confirmed to be six inches in size.

@ The mini T.V. thing: It already sounds like it has more practical use than the double screen on any DS, plus, a Nintendo console better than a 360/PS3 is always worth a look.

So they're dropping the motion controls?

Bah, they should seriously consider making DS's/3DS's into compatible controllers for the new console.

I mean, think about that. Brilliant, isn't it?

Probably would be if they'd seriously consider keeping the control scheme the same way... and if they're already going as far as slapping a fuggin' T.V. on it, why stop there? Though I doubt it'll be any more different than the move from the Gamecube pad to the Classic pad (which was sort of a step backwards anyway).

They'll probably have the whole motion controls thing in there for people who wanna play Wii games on the new system. Who knows, it might be slightly improved, too. Not really counting on that last part though.

While we're on the subject of Nintendo: http://gear.ign.com/articles/116/1161572p1.html

Handheld SNES Announced

Third party gaming accessory manufacturer Hyperkin has just announced the upcoming SupaBoy, a handheld console that plays original SNES cartidges.



I like the idea because I no longer have a working SNES but still have some games lying around, and it's portable.

Also, this:



Seems pretty cool to me, but maybe I'm just tired.
