Next Nintendo Console Packs Greater Graphical Power than PS3 and Xbox 360, Debuts at E3 this JuneBy Rothtana Ouch
Multiple sources have confirmed the existence of the Wii‘s successor and the next Nintendo cash cow pegged for an announcement to hit this June at E3.
Sources close to the situation have confirmed that the new console will be more powerful than the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360. A more powerful unit makes sense at this time and would mean strong sales for the new console. By outperforming the PS3 and the Xbox 360, Nintendo can immediate leap frog to next-generation graphics and could be the go-to-console by default.
The unit itself will not be gimmick based but appeal to core gamers.
Nintendo will also seek to improve third party relationships and ensure third party publishers be successful on their new console as opposed to the Wii’s sticky relationship with current-gen publishers. Third-party publishers often found their games to not achieve Nintendo-like success in their published games.
No word yet, if backwards compatibility will be supported on the new platform or if the Wii brand will carry over. Thanks, Gameinformer.
