Wii 2 announcement June 7,

23 May

I have read kajillions of stories about the wii 2 and its rumours so I will cut it down and tell you what you want to know. Firstly the wii 2 has been announced that it will be announced (so far the date being June 7). It has been given the name “project cafe” as a codename so if you see people calling it that you know why. there are a few names hovering around, the most popular being stream and breeze (and a few wii HD’s in there too) I have no idea where breeze came from but stream is because of the controller which I will tell you about in a moment…

The controller is a huge part of the console and I think that there has been more rumours about the controller than the console. One huge thing about the controller will be a supposed 6 inch hd touchscreen as part of the controller, they will still include buttons as thy are still more responsive and easier to use. I also have a weird feeling that the screen on the controller instead of being touchscreen may even be 3D. This is where the stream name comes in, apparently the controller will “steam” information from the console and may even be like a handheld in itself. New reports are saying that it will also have a camera inbuilt which means that there is going to be much more possibility.

The console itself is said to be comparable to the xbox 360 and PS3, HD and a super powerful processor is said to make Nintendos next big console a hardcore aswell as casual console (hardcore :COD casual: mariokart) this means a whole new generation of games. its even been said that Nintendo is having talks with rockstar to make a new game for their next console. Ubisoft has seen the console and has said that its amazing.

the link below is a so-called leaked video of the new console, whether its true or not is for you to decide, to me it just doesn’t seem to real. Lacking that Nintendo feel but then again I could be mistaken (and for some reason there isnt any sound so thats meant to be like that)

    Can’t wait 🙂 That concept controller looks a bit strange though.
