Whee!: Details On HD Wii Dropping Next Year

April 25, 2011


Note: Actual console will probably NOT look like an old slide-projector.

So apparently Nintendo has opened up a bit (JUST LIKE I SAID THEY SHOULD) and released some info on the upcoming gaming console set to drop next year. Next year being 2012. 2012 being the year the world ends but not before I take out the biggest bank loan I can without fear of having to pay it back. *tapping side of head* Always thinkin'.

According to Nintendo's official press release, the new console will be shown in playable form at this year's E3 Expo in Los Angeles from June 7-9.

Previous rumors suggest "Project Café/Stream" (code-name/rumor name) will be more powerful than the PS3 and Xbox 360, output 1080p, possibly work with 3D, and be similar in size to the original Xbox.

Project Café/Stream will reportedly come with updated motion controllers with even more accurate tracking, a controller with a large 6-6.2-inch touchscreen with eight buttons and dual analog sticks, store games on a Blu-ray disc and cost anywhere between $350-400.

Holy cramps, it looks like somebody's trying to get back into the "non-casual" gamer market. Get it?! It's me! WIN THIS ROUND OR I'LL F***ING KILL YOU.

Thanks to Carmen, who agrees the Zelda after Skward Sword better be the hot shit with extra flies.
