Posted in Video Gaming with tags , , on April 15, 2011 by Citifiable

Multiple sources have now reported that Nintendo will reveal a new console at or before E3 this coming June. Code named Project Cafe, reliable reports are saying the system will run games in HD finally, which is something that has plagued the Wii since release.  You can see the translated link to the original french story here.  Some other rumors being reported state the system is more powerful than the Xbox 360 or Playstation 3 and will be backwards compatible with the current Wii software. Supposedly it will also feature an all new controller with a touch screen. The system is rumored to launch at the end of 2012. Stay tuned to our coverage of E3 coming up in June for more details.

Nintendo 3DS

Nintendo has officially launched the site for their upcoming 3DS and confirmed a release date of March 27.  I got to see this thing at E3 last year and it was very impressive, delivering a surprisingly solid 3D experience with no glasses.  They have a nice slate of launch titles and a bunch more coming by Christmas.  Only downside is the estimated 3-5 hours of battery life.  $250 is definitely a lot more than Nintendo handheld gamers are used to paying, but these will be very hard to get a hold of throughout 2011 nonetheless.  Get your pre-orders in now if you want to get your hands on one!
