View Poll Results: Will they announce a new Xbox?
- 21. You may not vote on this poll
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.
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.
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.
