Everyone knew it was coming.
From rumors to a very short, albeit, short press release… The next Nintendo Wii is coming! What will the future hold?
Let the speculations begin!
The curent round up points to a HUGE controller with a screen (think like a DS in your hand), HD (of course), and all sorts of other goodness. No unicorns yet. Those rumors will take a few more days to vent.
And, in a short while, many many pictures and hands on will be coming of the device as it is shown to the world at this year’s E3 convention held in Los Angeles, CA, June 7-9.
(I love the “To whom it may concern” in the press release. To whom it may concern.. Oh, say, like the whole world of Wii lovers?)
Press Release :
To whom it may concern: Re: Wii’s successor system
Nintendo Co., Ltd. has decided to launch in 2012 a system to succeed Wii, which the company has sold 86.01 million units on a consolidated shipment basis between its launch in 2006 and the end of March 2011.
We will show a playable model of the new system and announce more specifications at the E3 Expo, which will be held June 7-9, 2011, in Los Angeles.
Sales of this new system have not been included in the financial forecasts announced today for the fiscal term ending March 2012.
