"Multiple Sources" Confirm Impending Nintendo HD Console
Nintendo might be the first of the Big Three to announce a new console following the step into next generation gameplay, according to multiple reports, which claim high-profile sources have divulged sensitive information on the company's next project.
Game Informer kicked off the proceedings, revealing that the Wii successor will run games at high-definition resolutions, though several technical comparisons to the PS3 and Xbox 360 are floating around--so we don't know how graphics will look compared with current HD consoles. Nintendo has already begun showing the console to publishers to gather interest, a key move which could help bring multi-platform triple-A titles to the new system.
Game Informer's source said, "Nintendo is doing this one right. [It's] not a gimmick like the Wii."
CVG reports that "well-placed international industry sources" revealed the console will in fact be more powerful than the PS3 and Xbox 360. Information on an all-new controller has also surfaced, and it will reportedly feature a HD screen. That's a high-definition screen ... on a controller.
Both reports have common ground regarding the system's debut: this year's E3 in June. Game Informer's source suggested that it may even be revealed before then, so Nintendo fans have a lot to be excited about.
