Forums - Nintendo Discussion - IGN: Nintendo is absolutely going to show new hardware this year

Wii U portable!

“It appeared that there had even been demonstrations to thank Big Brother for raising the chocolate ration to twenty grams a week. And only yesterday, he reflected, it had been announced that the ration was to be reduced to twenty grams a week. Was it possible that they could swallow that, after only twenty-four hours? Yes, they swallowed it.”

Still expecting a Nintendo tablet with the ability to stream to a tv. There is a market for that i think.

Haha i don't think they are ever going to touch that name again haha. Mayne Wii portable but i think a whole new name would be better.

They could maybe make some add-on that slots into the expansion port at the bottom of the Upad, incorporating a synced SD card / internal storage medium, to make it act like a portable gaming system. That could be some sort of fightback against all the "OH MAN THE PSVITA COULD DO ALL THIS" stuff, but since only a dozen people would even appreciate it, the end result would actually be a stalemate; a "0-0" score in the game of apathy.

I guess someone has to throw this one up there.

Vitality sensor? :D

On the front page news: Nintendo denies any hardware beeing unveiled.

Sounds like IGN showed their colors there. :x

I knew Nintendopie was on to something when these "contacts" were third parties.

If they were showing new hardware, it would be ON STAGE at E3. No way they would release a new console in a Direct.

so are you going on the record as "no new hardware"?


Wait as in brand new console Or both with a new revision? Cuz they can show off a new revision and thats new hardware (meaning you dont need to be on a stage)

Since Wii U and 3DS are underperforming, any revision would have to be a mass market appeal attempt too (e.g. DS Lite/PS3 Slim), and require a stage.

Could still be some sort of HW revision or peripheral.
In the IGN podcast they considered those possibilities and said that they didn`t trust the rumours to begin with. Only Peer was a firm believer that something HW related was going to be shown.

100th reply.
