    Well if it's next gen it would want to be more powerful than the PS3 and 360. Hopefully more games besides Mario Kart and Smash Brothers apeal to me this time.

    Lets be honest, graphics are not that important, i just want great gameplay. The SNES still boasts some of the greatest games ever.

    Having said that I love Nintendo and would buy it.

    Wonder how this goes, Wii has turned Nintendo into a shovelware company. Hope they go back to their roots.

    The 360 is very outdated technology

    most laptops can achieve higher graphical power than the 360 now.

    Nintendo might pull a Sega here and blow their load too early.

    Can't wait. Although it might be a little early.

    New console time is always good. :D

    Article mentioned they want to recapture the hardcore market.

    Interested to see if they give up their stranglehold on the casual gamer to do so.

    I think that's what the 3DS is for. Hopefully this is a mixture between the 2.

    Definitely has to be backwards compatable. Wii games still sell like hotcakes.

    If that is the case though, I wonder how motion-based the controller will be?

    Re: New HD Nintendo Console

    Maybe the Wii mote will be able to connect to the new console. I'd be a bit worried swinging around some sort of controller with a HD screen in built. :p

    As the owner of both consoles, I can say that neither console is more impressive "graphically" than the other. Let the fanboi war begin

    Controller with a built in screen? The big three are still scrambling to keep up with the mighty Dreamcast ;)

    Seeing though 360 have sold so much more it obviously isn't a big deal anyway.

    I don't want to incite a war here but the 360 has had a 1 year headstart.

    Not that pumped for this but I will still buy it eventually. There's no way I'm missing out on first party developed Nintendo games even if there's only Mario and Zelda.

    Re: New HD Nintendo Console


    I agree. They got it right with Donkey Kong Country Returns...that game on the Wii was fantastic, and hard.
    Today I was playing FF6 for the SNES (via Wii download), and it is brilliant. Most games these days, excluding Mario, Metroid, Pokemon, Zelda, dont really do it.

    WHAT!!!! you want a war lol.

    True, but really I just went with what most of my friends had so we could play against each other. Can't go wrong with either console.
