Nintendo Wii U

While Sony and Microsoft are announcing Titles for their systems, Nintendo is Introducing a Brand New Console. Bragging that You don’t need a TV to play, It uses Wii Controllers, Motion, Video Chat, Stylus, Touch Screen Contoller and many more features. Is this just another Gimmick like the Wii before it? or was the Wii put out as a treat of what is to come?

You Decide.

With all the rumors of an upcoming Wii console, what do you think it will be like?
Do you really think there will be HD touch-screens in the controllers? Do you really think the graphics will be more advanced than the PS3 and 360? And do you really think the console will be for $400? And do you really think the console will come out in 2013?

I’m really interested in what you all have to say. Personally, I don’t think this ‘Project Cafe’ is real, though. Of course, they are developing a new console, but just because the price dropped for the Wii doesn’t mean that a Wii 2 is coming any time soon. I would suspect a revealing of a Wii HD or a Wii 1.5 versus a full successor. What are your thoughts?

So the folks at Gamrfeed have published a few nice charts showing the sales numbers from ‘07-’10 for the Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and Wii. More interesting than those numbers, perhaps, are the market share numbers.

Truthfully, the Playstation 3 is beginning to see better days. We already know that Sony expects the Playstation 3 to be a 10-year console, but I’m not too sure even Sony is convinced of that after giving these charts a once-over. Very interesting stuff!

Since the charts aren’t the best when uploaded to Wordpress, make sure to click the source link if you’re interested in seeing theirs.

For Mario’s 25th birthday, it looks like Nintendo is selling a special edition Nintendo Wii and DSi/DSi XL. The Wii will be coming out with the new Wii Motion Plus controller that we’ve posted about earlier, but it will also come pre-installed with a special edition of the original Super Mario Brothers game! It’ll be jam packed with custom sprites like new bricks.

It will be out on November 11th for ¥20,000 ($241). However, there is no release date or price stated for the DSi/DSi XL, yet, but it appears to be the same date as the custom edition Wii.
