Nintendo has been rumoring a new console recently and the rumor has become fact. Project Café will become a reality sometime in 2012, but Nintendo will be showcasing a playable unit at E3 this June.
The new console according to IGN (which was told by other sources) will be “significantly” more powerful than the current powerhouse consoles the Xbox 360 and the Playstation 3. The also rumored “tablet” controller is apparently real as well and will be on showcase alongside the console at E3. Also Project Cafe will be backwards compatible with all current Wii software so kudos to the Big N for that.
This is very exciting news for Nintendo and the gaming community because we will now see what Nintendo can do with HD gaming. The Wii served its purpose with introducing a new way to play games and opened up several creative avenues for developers; but with that being said it also slammed the door on others because of hardware limitations. Project Café is brewing, but until we see it at E3 this June we can only speculate as to what it can do and will offer. Stay tuned for more Project Café news and as always follow me on Twitter @GamersAbstract and on Facebook.
