    According to Major Nelson, there will definitely not be new hardware announced at E3. Could be a ruse of course.

    To all who have been speculating that the next-gen Xbox will be announced this year at E3… stop. Major Nelson has said via Twitter: “FYI: We don’t plan on discussing new #Xbox hardware at #E3 this year”.

    That’s not to say that there won’t be a new console in 2013, it’s just that Microsoft plans to focus on the Xbox 360 this year – publicly at least.

    In an article on Bloomsberg (referred to by Major Nelson in his tweet), David Dennis – a company spokesman – said via an email statement:

    “There will be no talk of new Xbox hardware at E3 or anytime soon. For us, 2012 is all about Xbox 360.”

    I honestly do not believe that the Wii U will be as big a success as Nintendo believes it will.
    I bet not a single member of this community plans on buying one.

    I for one see absolutely no reason to get one. Why would I buy a console which is less (or even equal if it is) powerful than the 2 consoles I already have? Because of the console exclusives? You mean Mario or Zelda cause that’s how far Nintendo’s exclusives go.

    If I am playing a game at home I want to play it on my 46” TV, not some small tablet with a screen that’s probably going to be lower res than the new iPad’s Retina Display screen?

    I do own a Wii and it had more appeal to me than this Wii U has.

    Again, MS and Sony do not consider the Wii U a threat. If they did, then they would have announced their next gen consoles already.
    Nintendo has no choice but to release a new console. I remember when my bro was still at Musica. Their Wii console sales dropped to almost nothing once Kinnect came out.

    If I want to play games on a tablet I will use my iPad thank you very much.

    My prediction is: No announcements by either Sony or MS at this year’s E3 about anything next gen at all.

    What I am really curious about going into the next gen is, will the PS4 and Xbox 720 again be quite evenly matched hardware wise, or will we see one being a lot more powerful than the other?
    The Wii was also less powerful than the Ps360 and we all know that it destroyed both in sales.



    Look they don't have to say "Here's your ps4 and 720". But what would be nice is if they show some sort of tech demo that would give us an idea what the next gen consoles would be capable of.

    Yeah, I want to see what future tech can do. That's why I really want to see what the Wii U can do, especially Nintendo 1st party games.

    It won't happen. The last thing either of them would want would be to play their cards too early, thus giving their competition a massive advantage.

    I think they will do an announcement, but it will be like the Kinect announcement. No gameplay but rather a teaser of what to expect.

    Well maybe I'm wrong.

    We forgot about Apple. Apple is hurting Nintendo (and Sony) badly in the handheld market...which is largely the same as the Wii market.
