Nintendo announces next-generation console coming in 2012

While we generally leave the gaming news for our sister site Gamertell, there are some items that come with a special place in our hearts. That being said, we love Nintendo and the Wii and what truthfully speaking, is a better console for the non-gamer? Especially the non-gamer that likes to play all of those old school virtual console games. Anyway, the good news here and the reason we have decided to break our unofficial no-game-console-news rule is that Nintendo announced that the successor to the Wii was coming next year. Well, they also stated that the Wii originally launched in 2006 and from then until the end of March 2011 they managed to sell 86.01 million units. But getting back to the upcoming console, that is going to be announced during E3 which runs from June 7-9 2011. And rest assured, because Gamertell will be on-site for the event which means you will get proper gaming news.

Re: Wii’s successor system

Nintendo Co., Ltd. has decided to launch in 2012 a system to succeed Wii, which the company has sold 86.01 million units on a consolidated shipment basis between its launch in 2006 and the end of March 2011.

We will show a playable model of the new system and announce more specifications at the E3 Expo, which will be held June 7-9, 2011, in Los Angeles.

Sales of this new system have not been included in the financial forecasts announced today for the fiscal term ending March 2012.

    Haha, I never thought of that XD

    Maybe they're trying to appeal to "former gamers" ? ^^
