Next Xbox And PlayStation 4 Will Be Shown At E3 To Steal Wii U Thunder

Respected UK games industry publication MCV is reporting that an extremely reliable source has told them that both Microsoft and Sony will be showing off their next generation consoles at this summers E3 event. It will mark the very first time in the show’s 17-year history that three fresh, rival console formats will be competing against each other.

“Obviously we can’t reveal our sources. But you have my personal word on this – the source is exemplary, 100 per cent concrete, ultra high level.”

      1. I disagree, Sony and microsoft should not show thier consoles this year. Thjey can wait a year. The WiiU will provide no comeptition to sony and microsoft as it’s graphics will remain with this generation graphics. This year should be the WiiU’s year. Sony and microsft will mess it all up with fanboys and idiots. I say the ps4 and xbox 720 should not come out until 2014. And be showcased 2013.

        1. it should be left till 1-2 years down the line, then they can cut the WIIu out the market with its outdated hardware and starve it of 3rd party. they won’t lose any 3rd party as most games are ported from 360 anyway. thats what a cut throat buisnessman would do

          1. i disagree completely here what makes you think the wiiu’s graphics will be outdated its already been said by the president himself that the console would be expensive and that real time bird tech demo besides the water looked amazing. if anything i think Microsoft would reveal their console while Sony would remain a little held back so they can market vita.

        2. Yeah, it should be the Wii U’s year. But remember, Sony and Microsoft are competition for them. Would they want sales for the Xbox 3 and the PS4 going to Nintendo? Of course not. They want sales, and if they reveal it at e3 this year, they will get the sales they need for the 2013 year.

      1. because thier fans demand it? yes ok lets have the next gen consoles come out oh man its only been 2 years since the consoles came out. fans demand another console. See that logic? no thats a terrible idea. I think they should showcase it next year, sell it in a couple of years.

        1. 6 years dumbass, and thats like saying the wii u shouldnt be released because it also came out around the same time as other consoles.

        1. Sony has àleady stated that they are taking the casual route, so if anything, itll be the cheapest of the 3. its the WiiU im a little worried about.

          1. I disagree. Just because WiiU is coming out they have to show thier consoles? *buzzer* wrong. Their nex gen consoles will have far superior graphics then the WiiU. They can Wait a year. The WiiU should be treated as a side console. The Wiiu Being the only console will boost sales this year while sony and microsoft can have the advantage next year.

            1. Looks like sony and microsoft has a plan to kill the wiiu. Hopefully nintendo will go for more hardcore gamers while maintaining their creativeness and originality. Im sick of nintendo getting dissed by so many gamers and thay includes me at sometimes because of crappy download content. But i hope they succeed this year

          2. lololololol, you think itll be cheaper then the WIIU? thing again, prices will of course be 600-700 dollars just like last time. same thing for 360 although they say ” oh we sales experts say the console is going to be cheaper this time”. No it wont. And because of this I’m not buying for a couple of years because the price needs to go down.

    1. SMH DUMBASSES THERES STILL A LONG WAY IN GRAPHICS ALL CONSOLE CANT MATCH A PC YET. PS4 AND XBOX R GOING TO KILL NINTENDO HAHA.

          3. Hey DUMBASS.

            Thanks for reinforcing that only Nintendo had the ingenuity and balls to put all that technology together.

            THATs why Wii kicked you’re other consoles in the balls with their sales.

            Troll = 0
            Nintendo = 1

            1. Thats why NINTENDO sold all their games at a loss and loss over a Billion dollars. Hell, IWATA HAD TO TAKE MONEY OUT HIS POCKET LOL WONDER HOW LONG THEY CAN KEEP SELLING AT A LOST 2 YA GOVERNMENT WELLFARE BUMS HAHA.

              BTW WII SOLD A LOT:TRUE BUT LIKE I SAID PPL. BUY GARBAGE BIN AT CHEAP THUS WII HAD TONS SHOVELWARE AND YA HAD TO CRY AND BEG 4 XENOBLADE.

THATS WHY WII ONLINE SUCKED AND DREAMCAST LOOK BETTER HELL WII LEFT SUCH A BITTER TASTE THAT FANS COULDN’T WAIT TO MOVE ON QUICKLY. IF UR PROUD NINTENDO CAN GET AWAY SELLING GARBAGE LIKE THAT WELL DONT COMPLAIN WHEN OTHER CONSOLES SHOW WHAT A LOW BUDGET PEACE OF SHIT WITH NO GAMES IT IS. REMEMBER: WHAAA NO XENOBLADE WHAAAA :( lol
              XBOX GAMER 1
              NINTENDO 0

              1. Go back to grade 3 so you can get schooled by your little kid classmates there, and maybe improve your spelling and grammar skills; Juuuuust might make a difference, and save you from looking like a nescient, prepubescent, live-in-your-mom’s-basement troll fanboy Wannabe gamer… :P

                and do some research so you can present some meaningful stats and info, instead of your trivial moronic rambling, and cursory wikipedia article excerpts XD

                I hereby deduct your Self-proclaimed point, XBOX GAMER == 0 (+you’re a dumbass)

                Better luck next time.

      1. Well for a hater at least you did a lot of research, (´・_・`) it even worries me. Do you hate Nintendo that much? I personally love Nintendo but I do enjoy games from Xbox 360 and PS3 but most of those games are the fighting ones (Tekken, MVC3, Soul Calibur) but I still prefer the Wii because its games are not only fun to play with friends but that kind of fun doesn’t need an internet connection to actually experience that feeling your craving for. Don’t worry I have a wireless internet connection and it works pretty damn fine :) so please stop hating and from what I have read you only look at games graphically not game-play wise.

      2. As much as it pains me to say, I have to side with the troll on one of these notes. Namely, the Wii U is going to be crushed.
        Let’s look at the scenario from the two sides of the casual-hardcore crowd. The casuals are going to see no reason to upgrade to Wii U because the Wii does all the things they need from their console. “Teh hardcorez” are the sort of people that would make posts akin to the above. All the games they care about are exclusives to Microsoft consoles (Halo), exclusives to PS3 consoles (…Uncharted?) and multiplatform titles that aren’t exclusive to Wii U (Absolutely everything else the XBOX users fawn over).
        So yeah, don’t expect Nintendo to do as well this time around.
        Now all the other stuff he said, that’s BULLSHIT.

        1. lets see do you think resident evil is rehashed? ALOT, call of duty is over done now, then you have rehashes like conkers bad fur day, goldeneye for the ps3, the mortal kombat arcade kollection is a rehash, god of war is button mashing and boring. im sorry but there are lots of people excited abou tthe Wii U and the only ones tha thate it is sony fanboys, microsoft fanboys and biased gaming magazines. ya know like game informer, EGM, etc etc. even G4 is biased and sony and microsoft pays them to say what they say. btw the Wii fanbase has been screaming for an HD console like the Wii U since HDTV’s became the norm.

          1. FUCK X PLAY! If a game has no blood, guts or online play. It gets no attention from those self righteous hacks.

            Guess which revolutionary title had none of those and got the silent treatment at their game of the year awards.

            1. what are you a fucking troll? or fucking retarded like every other person who speaks in caps because they think they are cool? Kingdom hearts is a shooter? are smoking pot? did u not graduate high school? Do i need to whoop ur ass? Wiiu will release nintendo games idiot. Even if they do rerelase xbox 360 and ps3 games ppl will buy the WiiU and they will buy those games because of nostalgia morooooooooooooooonnnnn. See this what happens when ur a fanboy and you think you know what your talking about.

          2. Do you actually have proof that G4 is being payed or are you just saying that because they don’t talk about Nintendo products?

            All companies have rehashed games on their systems and though Nintendo has been doing it for 25 years I would say they innovate enough on each iteration to make it a very different experience.

            1. Yeah! You tell that big meany bully! I never get tired of rescuing Peach or fighting giant Bowser because Nintendo knows how to innovate the story and add new experiences, like fighting Bowser in a castle, instead of lava filled stage. :)
              Or Zelda – another of Nintendo’s masterpieces. Although it could be sumed up as Zelda gets kidnapped, you collect shit, always save Zelda, find out you Zelda and Ganon hold Triforce, fight Ganon save Zelda, the end. I still like it because Nintendo knows how to change things up. For example different cell shading, or in one you could even play as Zelda! WHO’D HAVE THOUGHT?! GEEEEEENIIIIUSSSSS!!!

              1. Have you even played all the Zelda game, that description fits about half of them.
                But you could use your reductive example for every game: The world is ending you must save it so you adventure across a world, kill a boss and save the world, credits roll.
                It about the actual world, gameplay mechanics and overall experience that make them unique.

        2. really? hahaha u bet u! bet u! bet u they will out sell sony and microsoft agian! agian i say! because of thier nintendo exclusives.! espeically with the new gameply they have to offer that microsoft and sony doesnt! bam! try to say I’m wrong. If u think I’m wrong u need a serious slap upside the head with common sense.

      3. lol your comparations sucks. If we can call one company of being copying than we all now without needing to think about it, that it’s realy SONY.
        It’s not name playstation but it’s named COPYSTATION. If nintendo has it, sony will have it to 6month later.
        Last 2 function that have copied are:
        – wiiu controller by using the vita screen connected to the ps3. It’s strangs that it comes just 2 months after wiiu is announcement.
        Vitality sensor -> sony has a panten from november that does the same as what nintendo announcement 2years ago. This is just 2 little things that sony did. I can give you a timeline of more than 1000 things sony taked from nintendo. We all know sony works like that.

        1. STOP BULLSHITTING FAGGOT HELL 3DS STOLE AR, 2 CIRCLE PADS, SOCIAL APPS, WHICH NINTY REFUSE TO ADD, AND GYROSCOPE FROM PLAYSTATION.
          AND SO LETS SAY THEY DID COPY DOES THAT MAKE NINTENDO HOLY FUUUUCCCK NO THEY STILL SUCK THEY CANT EVEN DO ONLINE PROPERLY. SHIT THEY ALSO FAIL AT RELEASING THERE OWN GAMES ZELDA SS 4 EXAMPLE WAS TEASED AT 200 FUCKING 9 AND YA FINNALLY PLAY IT IN 2011 SHIIIIT. ALSO THEY HAVE SHOVELWARE. THEY COPIED THE IPAD THE VERY THING THEY AND U APPLE OWNERS ‘HATE’. AT LEAST SONY DOESN’T COPY THEIR SHITTY ONLINE POLICY. ALSO NINTY DONT GIVE A SHIT BOUT U LOL THEY KNEW WII HAD NO FUCKIBG GAMES AND THEY ONLY RELESING XENOBLADE AFTER U FANS CRY HARD LIKE DOGS HAHA 3DS=REGION LOCKED. NINTY SURE CARE BOUT YEAH. NEVER MIND AM TALKING TO IDIOT ZOMBIES WHO BOUGHT MARIO 25 ANNAVERSARY GAME 4 30 BUCKS WHEN ITS JUST AN SNES ROM THAT WAS ORIGINALLY FREE YA REAL FAN SERVICE THEIR THEY ALSO DELETE UNUSED NINTENDO FAN CLUB COIN CURRENCY AT THE END OF YEAR U KNOW CUZ THEY CARE$ and respect ya bout ya

          1. Ok You Win.

            Nintendo can make more money on the same games for 25 years than re other systems put together.

            Dude. That’s really sad. Nintendo can make more off an 8 bit game than the others can make off an HD game?

            Thanks for pointing out Nintendo Games are just that damn awesome.

            1. Yeah that is sad that u play the same rehased game for over 25 years. Meh ur life wasted not mine. Enjoy playing with the kids you pedofile. I’m sure that’s what keeps you refreshed.

              1. To all the people that are hating on Nintendo I disagree with what your saying! Now I kinda think the PS3 is better personally but you’ve obviously never played any of the following:
                1. Sin & Punishment
                2. Muramasa: The Demon Blade
                3. Red Steel 2 (Red Steel 1 is the worst game ever made)
                4. Monster Hunter Tri
                5. No More Heroes (I’m aware this game has N64 Graphics)
                6. No More Heroes 2
                7. Metroid Other M (A game that’s no rehased)
                8. The Metroid Prime tri
                9. Xenoblade Chronicles
                10. Disney Epic Mickey (This is only good if you don’t play Mario galaxy before hand)
                11. LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga (This is on PS3 to)
                12. Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles
                13. The Conduit 2 (One is good but you can use the classic controller with two)
                14. The House of the Dead
                15. MadWorld

                These are all the Wii games I own other than the Mario and Zelda games, I think the Wii is good it’s entertaining. The PS3 is good and it’s entertaining. So why all the hate?

                1. thank you,thank you,thank you.
                  You just stated what I wanted to say to this LONG AS FUCK comment thread. All three systems have their ups and downs. PS3=Little Big Planet Series,Uncharted and free online, Xbox 360= Halo, better online and many Indie games (my favorite type of games), Wii/WiiU= unique games, familiar gameplay that always feels new in a way, and party games for everyone. As an added bonus to the rehashed game talk, the WiiU will most likely use both controller AND touchscreen for a new gameplay feel, so SHUT UP ABOUT IT ALREADY!

      4. LOL, YOU USE WIKIPEDIA AS A SOURCE!! xD and YES, IT DOESN’T COUNT.
        Thank you so much for all the time you take for your researchs, you must really care a lot of what “Ninty” does or doesn’t. BTW you note so much on what “Ninty” has “copied” well, I don’t want to be the one who wakes you up, but PS and XBOX ALSO use, will use, or has used: Analog Sticks, online system, motion controls, touch/multitouch screens, memory cards, etc etc…

      5. I know that this is the same troll whos been flaming this site for like 3 months now, but that was actually a funny post.

    2. Nintendo is really trying to Step-Up and the other guys see that. The last thing Sony or Microsoft want to do is go the way of Atari.

  1. “It will mark the very first time in the show’s 17-year history that three fresh, rival console formats will be competing against each other.”

    Had Nintendo revealed any games and/or the controller for the then mysterious Revolution, this would probably be the second time.

      1. This is not going to be rivalry. Nintendo is going to LAUNCH while Sony and Microsoft are going to ANNOUNCE their prototypes. If they were to sell almost at the same time, it will be a competition IMO. It will be cool if they show this kind of stuffs =D I can’t wait for E3 now

  2. If its true, I hope Wii-U still has the power to blow them away. Nintendo now has time to catch up and fix hardware now before final unveil.

    1. Nintendo is out of time bro. It time to play ball or go home.

      Whatever WiiU is, it is. Maybe they can make some tweaks to some of the units, but they’ve given Micro and Sony a head start by showing what N can do with THEIR hardware.

      If Nintendo has any tricks up their sleeve, they best play them at E3.

      I’m pulling for Nintendo, but frankly, I’m nervious. I know the other systems will be well equipped with what people want… Graphics, social media, online connectivity… Nintendo AT LEAST needs to give us N – Fanboys (and girls) a consistent, reliable way to hookup online and game or share RPG experiences… As well as expand games with quality (and free?) DLC. Like a Zelda RPG where additional quests are updated into the world of Hyrule. (or something like that)

  3. Remember when Sony said the Playstation 3 would be a sound investment, because it would last at least 8 years?

    Yeah, I called “bull” back then too.

    1. The PS2 was/is still supported, even though the PS3 was released.

      The PS3 will most likely be supported after the PS4 is released

      1. anyone can correctly me if im wrong but i think 2011 was the last years the Ps2 was being supported, but yes your correct about the Ps3, itll most likely still be supported till 2016.

    2. I REMEMBER WHEN NINTY SAY THEY WOULDNT DO DLC OR CHEAPEN THEMSELVES WITH APPS=FAIL. GUESS NINTY COPY APPS AND IPAD. FAGGOT WII HAD SHOVELWARE IT WAS GARBAGE. SKYWARD LOST TO SKYRIM. PPL GOT MAD AT NES ZELDA 2 YET LIKE SJYWARD PIXALETED REHASED WINDWAKER GRAPHICS ADDED SO THAT NEXT ZELDA GRAPHICS WILL ‘APPEAR’ GREATER. NINTENDO SELL CUZ IT CHEAP TRASH. ALL IT MEANS IS PPL. RATHER BUY CHEAP GARBAGE

        1. Angry about vita sales ? To bad. Sony stops already with hd tv’s, the sales of vita are just in scale of 1:5 with 3ds and ps3 is just selling well. What happens with ps4? ps4 will be casual and cheap. Sony has lost allot of money and can’t win from MS.
          Nobody will pay 1000 dollars to beat wiiu graphics. Enjoy while you still can.

          1. ONLY REASON 3DSHIT SOLD WAS CUZ ITS CHEAP GARBAGE HELL WHEN NINTY PRICED IT AS VITA U BUMS COULDNT AFFORD IT, THATS WHY PPL. CALL YA CASUAL PLAYERS YA ONLY PLAY LOW END TECH. YA can afford. IF VITA WAS PRICED AT 100 DOLLARS IT WOULD KILK 3DS=TRUTH. 3DS IT A DISGRACE TAKE IT APART AND IT REVEALS THE TOUCHSCREENS IS THE SAME OLD TECH WHEN DS CAME OUT. TRUE INNOVATION COMES AT PRICE. 3DS STOLE GYROSCOPE 2 ANALOG DESIGN AND ITS QUALITY IS SO POOR THAT IT GETS FINGER SMUDGES. TRUE DIDCATED GAMERS/PC PLAYERS ENJOY HIGH END TECH AND KNOW IT COMES WITH A PRICE. ITS NOT QUANTITY ITS QUALITY UNLIKE 3DS WHICH IF U CLOSE IT SCREEN SCRATCHES AND HAS GAMECUBE PIXALATED MARIO GALAXY SUNSHINE REHASED SINCE MARIO 64 4 LAND 3D LOL.

            1. You’re a FAIL. They didn’t say they wouldn’t do ANY DLC, they didn’t say they wouldn’t use apps. Wii and 3DS had apps, Netflix is an app. Trolling = fail.
              Get your shit straight, it doesn’t matter how its done, selling is selling. Fact 3DS sold better than Vita. Stop crying like a school girl and just get over it.

      1. i remember when sony said the ps3 was gonna last ten year. i remember when sony said they would win this generation. i remember when sony and microsoft both said motion control gaming was a FAD. i remember when games were good and not boring remakes of previous games like COD, uncharted, halo, twisted metal etc.

      2. Dude ur making no sense, if anything this shows that Micro and Sony fear what Ninten is doing. Last time I checked all the system r being sold at a reasonable price tag, and Ninten is still moving hardware eventhough the other Two or within the same price range. I own all three systems and still receive more enjoyment form Nintendo first party then the others, and the whole playing the rehashed game argument is alittle strange, uncharted 1,2,3 the same game pretty much especially 2 to 3. CODMW same game different number. G.O.W 1.2.3 same game better graphics. Infamous 1,2 same game. Move( r should I say wiimote for Sony) copying… U have no aurgement or legit stance.. U just hating because u fear just like Sony does that there quickly become 3 string! Yep I know ur a Sony fan cause only Sony fan spend time hating on the Nintendo just like a disrespectful son to his father. Smh

    3. They promised 10 years of support for the PS3 just as they did with the PS2, so I think they will deliver on that, even though the games that have come out for the PS2 in the last 5 years have been pretty bad.

  4. Microsoft maybe, but why on earth would Sony reveal a Playstation 4? It’s still the most powerful console out there and most of it’s potential is still yet to be used. There is no need whatsoever for Sony to release a new console at this point.
    Microsoft, however, has an ageing console that is due to be replaced sometime soon. Still, I don’t believe soon is this year. Maybe next year, but there is no reason they’d bring console development forward solely because of the WiiU.

    Sources so far have indicated that the WiiU will only be catching up to the 360 and PS3 in terms of processing and graphical power. Thus, unless Nintendo has something big they haven’t revealed yet, I doubt in any way that Sony and Microsoft feel to threatened by it.

    1. if you look at all the exclusives games coming out in the next year for each system….there’s barely any. theyre all on the new gen systems.

      1. nintendo has somthing at their minds i meen wii u migh be a litlle more powerfull than the previous time at e3 and with special features but 1 thing annoys me and its when wiiu will be reveald sony will steal them their ideas and copy them to their ps4 and this is geting a litlle stupid

      2. actually for PS3:

        twisted metal
        the last guardian
        starhawk
        Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time
        the last of us
        agent
        Final Fantasy XIV Online (also PC)
        dust 514
        journey
        sorcery
        Dead or Alive 5
        Yakuza: Dead Souls
        MLB 12: The Show

        its not as good as the exclusives the ps3 got this year but its still a pretty big list if sony’s gonna bring a new console to the market. now i dont know much about the xbox list though.

    2. Whether I was naive for it back the or not, I kinda remember having similar thoughts about the 360’s jump back then. ‘Where else are they gonna take the graphics?’ They showed me as did the PS3 about a year later. Still I think the industry may have noticed with the wii that there’s only so far you can go with graphics & the next step is the way you interact with games rather then just how they look on screen. The advances that we see could come in a crazy new controller, the way we perceive a game or something else crazy we never thought of. First thing that came to mind with me for Sony was True 3D with 3D glasses on a system where you NEVER had to do splits-screen again. They already figured a way to do that on their own moniter, maybe they found a way to do that for every 3D TV by powering the tech through the system. I’m looking to see hightend ways of connectivity & smother multimedia integration from this new generation & a stronger commitment to 3D with these new systems.

      All I know is I’m excited for all three…and that te Wii U better be able to support 4 of those controllers lol!

  5. what’s the point of releasing a PS4 or Xbox720? arnt the graphics and everything almost at their best now? whose gonna play $500 for slightly better graphics and processor? the ps3 and 360’s graphics and processor are decent now. the WiiU is a huge step from Wii though. not only is everything better powerhouse wise, but now there is a second screen, w/ gyroscope, camera, and more features to come. im interested in what Sony and Microsoft have to offer. 720 will probably be all Kinect, while ps4 gets a screen on it’s controller.

    1. You know who will pay $500 more to get better graphics? The same people that buy games like Call of Duty, Battlefield, ect. Because if people didn’t care about graphics then why would those companies care about graphics when all they want is to sell their stuff? Microsoft and Sony are going to do the exact same thing again, wait to see what nintendo is going to show off and then try to take it a step further, because with companies like that, they don’t like to take risks, and they want to be the ones getting money, they don’t care if people think that they’re the unoriginal ones. Its the money that they’re after, it’s the money that they care about.

      1. This ^^, But that’s why I still use my 8-bit NES. The graphics were great for back then, horrible now, but graphics don’t make the game. The storyline and actual events in the game do. People who buy CoD just want graphics.

    2. YEAH WII HAD SHITLOAD OF SHOVELWARE AND IF XBOX/PS3 HAS ONLY SHOOTERS THAN WHY YAH GEETING HAPPY ABOUT WII U, ALL WII U IS A BETTER PS3 THATS GOING TO STEAL OLD RECYCLED PS3 TITLES. BTW COD ON WII WAS NUMBER ONE SELLING GAME AT ONE POINT MEANING YA LOSER SECRETLY PLAY IT THATS WHY NINTENDO STOLE IT FROM XBOX.

      1. Um if you actually look that up, COD sells HORRIBLY on Wii. It didn’t hit 1 million. COD was never a hot title on Wii.

        1. He’s the stupidest troll yet. I don’t web read his posts anymore.

          The troll is probably a bored, mentally ill, lonely son of a bitch that craves attention. Probably cones from a broken home, is mildly suicidal, and even has violent thoughts about others.

          Still, I’m ignoring the bastard. Maybe someday it will learn to communicate with others of it’s species.

          1. Wow. Poor Steve, RIP, butthe “auto correct” on my iPod totally botched my last post…

            Thank God it’s jailbroken… *turns autocorrect “off”*

  6. I’m a the only person who thinks this is a really stupid idea! Let me make this clear

    The Wii U is not an eight generation console!

    The Wii U is Nintendo’s true seventh generation HDMI 1080p controller, what POSSIBLE positive thing could come out of Microsft and Sony to announcing new consoles. The Kinect and Move are barely 2 years old, whats the point of releasing them at all if u were just going to switch focus to a new console. What about stores, hell we still ahve stores that sell PS2 games, how much frustration is there gonna be when we have a 10 consoles to deal with. Theres no need for a good 3-4 years for Sony and Microsoft to release new consoles.

    All i can see is this blowing up in Sony and Microsoft’s faces

    1. ya. what new feature(s) can they possibley add to make people pay $500+ for slightly better graphics and processor. the ps3 and 360 are as almost at it’s best now. watch 720 be all Kinect and ps4 have a screen on controller

      1. Actually, I’m certain Sony is counting on the Vita for that. Sure it’s a super-expensive controller/portable, but at the same time they love selling their stuff in separate pieces.

        Meanwhile, I think Microsoft is pretty dead set on proving Kinect’s potential. They could introduce a screen, but they probably want as little in the way of Kinect as possible.

        Meanwhile, the Wii U will not only appeal to developers with the toolset it offers but also to those who want to develop and play super-traditional experiences (while still satsfying both audiences, mind you).

        1. Keep in mind that most systems actually launch 2-3 years after their initial announcement-Espically with Microsoft & Sony-and that those systems once their out take a year for their games to catch up to the Industy standard. By then Kinect/Move will be 2 years older & the PS3 will be two years closer to the “8 year plan” all their systems go through.
          Still this E3 is gonna be madness. Can’t wait.

        2. That was because of Blu Ray. As long as Blu Ray isn’t replaced by something else, we shouldn’t see another super-expensive PStation.

    2. May the video game crash of 2013 begin with Nintendo once again leading the gaming industry out of the Ashes. Nintendo Wii U should becalled the Nintendo Phoenix…

    3. STFU U LAME FAGGOT. WII IS TRASH ITS FULL OF SHOVELWARE AND WII U IS AN UPDATED XBOX 360 THATS GOING TO HAVE ‘NEW’ OLD XBOX360 TITLES WITH STOLEN IPAD/APPSTORE SHIT. U OLD FAGS ENJOY ANIMAL SAME SHIT CROSSING LOL DIE NINTENDO. EVER NIGHT I PRAY TO JESUS THAT THAT RETARD MIYAMOTO WHO GOT AWAY WITH PLAGIRIZING KING KONG MOVIE AND GOT OFF ON A TECHNI. YES HIM I PRAY HE DIE OF HEART ATTACK SOON. JNCE HE DIES THE REST FOLLOWS AND NINTENDO WILL BE HISTORY LEAVING ALL THE ANIMAL CROSSING POKESAMESHIT MANCHILDS CRYING.

  7. Wii-U
    PS4
    Microcock Xbox- Windows ME edition

    I doubt Microsoft is going to get many good exclusives as usual. Also, the PS3 hasn’t been fully utilized.. there are still 2 un-used cores. Why would they make a new console when the previous one can do far more than It does now?

  8. Pingback: Next-Gen-Konsolen auf der E3 2012 : SP1ELBAR

    1. I’m fairly certain Sony is attempting to fill that void with the Vita, though that puts them at a disadvantage because of the price.

  9. And here I though Sony was serious about their 10 year plan because it looked like they just weren’t gonna make the PS4 already. Ah oh well.

    1. Just because they release a new console doesn’t mean they will stop supporting the old one. The PS2 has had games released for it for ten years, last year being the last year of support.

  10. Putting a little perspective on these “graphics won’t get better” comments, sure we won’t be seeing a great graphical leap in games in the near future. However, visual developments are in the works that should be ready for the market entering the following decade, so there’s still places to go.

    The important thing now, of course, is that the next generation will, instead of a leap, be the fullest utilization of what is available. Other than energy efficiency and the like, that’s about it. What generation 8 will come down to is interfaces, whether they be controlwise, system OS or the online network, whoever has the best of these should see success over the coming years. If Nintendo’s outside help on the Wii U’s online has a great outcome, combined with their wealth of experience in traditional and experimental controls, they should do just fine going forward.

  11. all 3 new consoles being shown? (wii U is supposed to be shown in final form) E3 2012 is going to be one heck of an event.

  12. I hope people will be able to see through Sony and Microsoft’s lame consoles. They’re nothing but graphics and I hope gamers understands that soon. Wii U for the win!

    1. 3 things wrong with your comment.

      1: I’m sure it was just an expression.

      2: Seriously, what else do you expect them to do? Do you seriously think Sony and Microsoft would think about new consoles if nintendo hadn’t announced the wii u? Do you think Sony would have to make a whole new console to compete with the tiny little Wii?

      3: It’s his site. He can be a fanboy or say whatever the heck he wants. You don’t like it, go somewhere else.

    2. You’re on a site called my nintendo news… what did you expect? Did you expect him to say “oh, the new xbox and Playstation will be so much better than the Wii U?”

  13. There is plenty of room for improvement graphics wise. People seem to have this idea we are playing 1080p games at 60 fps and we arnt even close to that on consoles. Most games we are playing are barely above standard def and are just upscaled. The next gen could alow for true 1080p games at 60 fps aswell as DX11 improvements and various other upgrades.

    Also the people saying about the PS4 costing stupid ammounts are not engaging their brains. The PS3 only cost so much because it was pushing blue ray as a new media and the blu ray drive cost a fortune at the time. Blu ray is now dirt cheap and easy to make . I would be shocked if the PS4 cost the same or more than the release PS3 ,it will more likely be going for 450 dollars or so.

    1. ^^True to your first paragraph, but not sure I fully agree with the second. While I don’t see the PS4 costing $999, a new Sony system has never come that cheap. The PS2 starting price was 699 was it not? There will be some kind of tech advancement (maybe some crazy processer that enables true 1080p) that’s gonna jack the cost up at least $200. A $699-$799 price tag wouldn’t shock me at all.

    2. I agree with you completely.
      The PS4 will be $599 max, as Sony learned this generation what launching a console for a high price means, it took them quite a while to finally recover from that mistake, they won’t make it again even if it means losing money right after launch.

  14. That a bad move cause Nintendo E3 2011 showed nothing about Wii except Zelda. This is also a bad move for Sony since they got to show PS3, PSP, PS4, and Vita all at once. Why should I care Sony sucks I hate em and Microsoft I don’t even care about what they do as long as Nintendo and Microsoft kick Sony out the competition. If that happens let see where their fans go.

    1. Microsoft could do that. There are rumors that the new xbox is a lot easier to make and cheaper to make as well so the price may be lower than the original 360 when it launched. So if the price is good and Sony is too high, then microsoft could beat sony. I just want a wii u already

  15. This can’t be true. Nintendo didn’t show much last E3. Microsoft and Sony need at least one more year hands-on with the Wii-U before being able to copy it. E3 2013 maybe, but 2012 sounds too soon.

  16. Pingback: Next Xbox And PlayStation 4 Will Be Shown At E3 - Nintendo 3DS Forums

  17. It makes sense that Sony and Microsoft are shitting themselves after seeing the potential of the Wii U, but until I hear it from the Sony and MS I won’t believe it, especially not Sony.

    I hear on the feed that the next Xbox will double as a DVR.

  18. honestly, i don’t actually see this happening. the wii is running out of steam fast. whilst the PS3 and 360 have plenty left. there really isn’t a need for the new systems, yet. they should wait till after the wii u releases and see how it does.

    1. if the wii is running out of steam fast then why did it sell over 5 million units between black friday and xmas?? nice try even the ps3 didnt sell that many

  19. At this rate Kingdom Hearts 3 will be on PlayStation 4. What in the hell, Square? Though I am interested in a PS4 since the PS3 was my favorite system of the currents. Sorry, Wii, I love you and all, but…PS3 has you beaten and bloody.

      1. Maybe not, but the PS3 has a lot more games. The Wii’s 3rd party support is a damn joke. Why is that? Because they based the entire system around motion control gimmicks. If it was just something on the side and we could use traditional controls, the Wii would have many more games. Sales numbers are nice, but it hardly defines a winner if developers don’t want to touch it with a 10-foot pole. Most of the big name Wii games are 1st party games, with very few offerings from others that can’t be played on other systems. Only good non-Nintendo Wii exclusive that comes to mind is MadWorld. Which is a nice title and no one pays it much attention. Nintendo lost this round.

          1. Just as Blu ray was a gimmick. For you PS3 was the best and that’s fine but for me I still played the games I like. I get what people are saying about third party support and I believe people weren’t looking hard enough. The same as when people say no “mature” titles on the Wii. I also find it funny when I’m playing Scarface and the Godfather on my Wii instead of the XBox or PS3 people are surprised that it is on that console. Research show “Mature” games that are third party support. It is all about what you like. I don’t play FPS so none of those games appeal to me but that is not all that the XBox and PS3 is about. It is call research for a reason.

            1. But at least the bluray “gimick” is useful :P A nice add on that you dont pay extra for. Back when those blu ray players were coming out PS3 was one of the cheapest.

              Honestly Skyward Sword will probaly be the last game I buy for my Wii. I only have like 5 games for the damn thing. I have more xbox games then it and I just bought it last week. And well for PS3 I have a bit of a collection of games for it.

              Im agreeing with the OP, PS3 is deffiently my favourite for this gen just because of the games.

        1. Actually, Nintendo lost out on the 3rd party support this time around because of no HD. If a company wanted to make a PS3, 360 and Wii game, they had to design the Wii one differently, which means it cost more to make the game. Most companies didn’t want to do that. It was easy for companies to make PS3 and 360 games because they were on or near the same level graphically.

          If Nintendo wants this to not happen again, they need to have the Wii U on par or near with what the other next gen consoles will be like.

          1. Not possible.
            The WiiU will be on par with the current generation. It won’t even be truly “next gen” because it’s about as good as the current generation. I mean, they managed to get HD only now… It’s not even “now”, they’ll have it in only a few months…
            Sony and Microsoft will beat Nintendo again, power-wise. They’ll be far ahead, again. We can’t know about the sales though. Anyway, I guess it will just be the same as with Wii, Xbox360 and PS3: The last two won (again, power-wise) and it will probably happen again. It will take years for Sony and Microsoft to release their new consoles, whereas Nintendo is about to release theirs. There is no chance the WiiU can beat the other two power-wise.

            1. That’s where you are completely wrong, troll. The Wii U is truly the next generation console. What you’ve failed to realize is the graphics processing power as well playing games online, video chat (there’s camera inside the uPad), surf the web, streaming movies and TV shows on Netflix, and using apps. And it’s also 3 to 5 times more powerful than the current gen platforms that you’ve already known. Power-wise, the Wii U will beat Microsoft and Sony’s current platform to a bloody pulp. Count on it. Get N or GTFO!!!!!!!!

              1. Everything you listed can be done on my wonderful Android :) and PS3 if you have a web camera for it.

                But the dude dose have a point, because sony and microsoft wait they will have acsess to better technology then the Wii U and hence have the option to make thier systems better. That is why they want to wait to make their next gen consoles so they can use the future technology.

                  1. Lol, why doesn’t it count?
                    Looks like you simply can’t accept that even smartphones can already give people all the things you stated as something special only the WiiU will be able to offer, and even more things you didn’t mention.

              2. What you failed to realize is that the other two already offer all those things you just stated, maybe in a slightly different way, but they do offer it (btw, streaming movies/shows on Netflix is even possible on the Wii).
                And even IF the WiiU would beat Microsoft and Sony’s current platforms to a bloody pulp, that wouldn’t be anything special. That’s what Nintendo was supposed to do with its current platform, not with the “next generation”. It’s like you’re comparing the Wii with the Gamecube: It’s obvious that the Wii is better and it’s nothing special for a next gen to be better than the previous gen. Because a company would fail badly if they couldn’t even manage to be a whole lot better than the last gen. But unfortunately, Nintendo only manages to release things the others are offering already just now. And they’re doing it 6 years later than the other companies, so it’s the least for the audience to expect Nintendo to be better than the others’ current platforms now. But in my opinion, the WiiU is not enough to be called “next gen”. Because as I already said multiple times, the WiiU will mainly offer things the others are already offering for years. Of course there will be a few different things, but it’s still not enough in my opinion.
                The WiiU is the next generation of Nintendo, but it’s not the next generation in general. I love Nintendo, always did, but that’s the way I see it. You gotta face the truth and the facts instead of being led by your “feelings” for a certain company.
                And I don’t see a reason why I should be the person to gtfo. I mean if you don’t even seem to be able to accept other people’s opinions… Well, then you are the one who should leave.

                1. I’ve been a fan of Nintendo since 1988. It seems to me that you’re a Sony fanboy who goes to a Nintendo site like this and create BS. I’m not leaving. No… The Wii U is the 8th generation console. U mad because the U has the power and have already getting the fullest support by publishers and developers. It doesn’t matter if they create something that’s already available on iPhones, etc., etc. They innovate things that no other systems can match. Does the PS3 (or 4) has a built-in camera on the controller? NO! Does the PS3 has a CPU processor from IBM? No… just an inferior Cell processor.

                  Nintendo have already learned their lesson about not having enough hardcore games since the Wii was released. That is until the big N introduces the Wii U. And when the Wii U is released after the announced release date from their E3 press conference… and just like the Nintendo 64 preview VHS tape says… “The system is about to change.”

                  1. Rofl. Why the hell should I be mad about a system I love getting better ? I don’t see any logics behind that statement of yours. And yeah, it rather seems like you are the fanboy here. Plus, I’m not here just for Nintendo. I love Video Games and I want to read the newest infos about them, that’s why I’m here. I’m not taking any sides, because that’s not what defines loving video games. Loving video games means enjoying them, regardless of which system of which company they are made for. Being a fanboy of some company just shows me that someone doesn’t enjoy video games but taking sides.
                    Anyway.
                    Once again, I love Nintendo. I’m always happy to see them having big successes, but it is the truth that they did wrong back then with the Wii and that they are behind the other companies now because of that. Of course it did sell very well, but yeah, that doesn’t change the fact that they are behind the other companies power-wise right now.
                    Oh, and I never said that the PS3 has a built-in camera on the controller. I said that other consoles already have the features you’ve stated before, even if in a Slighty Different way. Other consoles had a camera add-on, which is better in my opinion, because an add-on makes the feature optional. The built-in camera will make the controller of the WiiU even more expensive than it probably would have been anyway, it’s basically a tablet after all.
                    I also didn’t say that the PS3 has a CPU processor from IBM. But I did say that the WiiU is slightly better on some points, which is the least to be expected since it’s been almost 6 years since the release of PS3 and Xbox 360 (it’s been more than 6 years since the release of Xbox360, actually).
                    And yes, it does matter if it has something which is avalaible on other devices already. They have to do it better than the devices of today, not as good as them.
                    Stop being such a fanboy and try to see that no company is perfect.
                    Just because I say some things about Nintendo you might not like it doesn’t mean I’m a fangirl or/and a troll. It just means I know how to gauge something without taking sides but trying to be impartial and stating my true opinion about something. I love Nintendo, but I also know how to face the facts.
                    And uh, I don’t even understand how you made up the idea of me being a Sony-fangirl. I wasn’t aware of making it look like that. Plus, I wasn’t talking only about Sony anyway. I was also talking about Microsoft.
                    You don’t have to agree with me but you should be able to accept opinions that are different from yours instead of insulting people.

  20. “To Seal Wii U Thunder”

    I’m assuming you mean “To Try Sealing Wii U Thunder”.

    ps3 and 360 had 1 main HUGE advantage over wii: graphics. That’s obviously why they’ve been getting all the great exclusives.
    Wii U will have awesome graphics and innovative gameplay as well as everything Wii had and more.
    So unless sony and microsoft come up with some mind-control console I don’t see the point in even trying, as they will fail.

    1. my point exactly all the ps4 and xbox720 will be either carbon copies of what nintendo is doing or just an graphic upgrade from the previous console. with the same boring controls as usual.

    1. True, lets see:
      – nds wins from psp, 3ds wins from vita again.
      – wii wins from ps3, wiiu wins again from? ps4
      Anyway sony told us that they don’t want to release a ps4 before 2015. Because otherwise the step between now and next gen gfx will be to small.

      If you check gameranking.com you can see which gen did had the best game of this generation. Yes nintendo.

  21. If videogame press or Sony & Microsoft actually think this is big news for them, they have no brain at all. The only company which will take an advantage of this is Nintendo itself, as they’re gonna show a true new option that will be available this year and which is what most gamers demanded: HD great graphics, even more ways to play, interaction with Wii features and controllers…

    I mean,as some people have said here before, Microsoft has been doin its best to advertise Kinect and thus make 360’s life longer, and Sony has nothing to offer at all, as PS3 is, in their own words, “the best thing a console has to offer”. And of course, 90% of us Nintendo fans don’t give a damn about new more-of-the-same consoles.

    So, the main question is… Who the f*ck cares about PS4/720 projects shown on the E3? The biggest thing they can afford to achieve is… 2 show slightly better graphics?

    What I said: BIG BIG BIG NEWS. Pfff

  22. Not gonna lie that will be cool if they announce the new systems but I wont be getting them until I know what exclusive games they will announce. I hope to own all 3 like I do for this generation ^_^

    1. same here!

      I’m exited to think this time, WiiU will get multiplatform games that Wii missed.
      games from platinum games, bethesda, Bioware, 2K, Rocksteady, and more.
      With Nintendo exclusives, WiiU can be the best system.

  23. I wonder which technology the PS4 and XBOX360 will use… I mean “graphically”.
    There’s nothing better than HDTV yet, I’ve read something about UHDTV and others technology for next TVs but they are experimental only and not yet on market. So, starting at the point the NeXtbox and PS4 will use HD, even if they work with the latest graphic cards on market, It will not be SO far from WiiU (Legend of Zelda HD exp. I NEVER seen something so smooth and bright on my PS3 or 360).

    Maybe they will use streaming, (as Onlive does) have the game running on a server make the graphics running better than anything, but it would require an expensive broadband conection.

    1. I don’t imagine anything above 1080p. It would be possible to go higher, but no one would be able to use it because of how expensive the TVs would be. I Imagine a PSX > PS2 jump rather than a PS2 > PS3 jump. You’re right, the PS4 NeXtbox may mean graphically superior, but it won’t be by much.

  24. I love Nintendo, I have a Wii and a 3DS, but if it’s true and we are gonna see a new generation consoles war this E3, I’ll see which one I like the most, of course Nintendo is kinda must have for me because of Mario, Metroid and Zelda.

  25. lol XD I BET IF NINTENDO DIDNT MAKE DS APPLE WOULD NEVER OF MADE I PHONE AND THE WII U PAD THING IS JUST A DIFFERENT CONTROLLER U CAN STILL USE WII REMOTE (HOPE YOU CAN USE GAMECUBE PADS). BUT I STILL STUGGLE TO SEE HOW WII U IS NEXT GEN THE GRAPHIC DONT LOOK BETTER. IM GUESSING PS3 AND XBOX WILL WILL BE MORE POWERFULL THEN WII U NINTENDO CAN JUST ABOUT GET 2 WIIU CONTROLLERS TO WORK. BUT THEY HAVE SMASH BROS SO TO ME THEY WIN

    1. Wow, another post full of fanboy ignorance. There were already touchscreen phones out since before DS or even the GBA were out. Why is it that ALL CAPS POST are always the most idiotic. SMH. I bet you must be like 5 yrs old: “THEY HAZ SUPA SMASH BROTHAZ THERE4 NINTENDO OWNZ MAH USELESS PATHETIC SOUL!”

    2. Um, please try not to use constant caps… it is one of the most annoying ways to read anything on the internet, and I feel the need to correct you on one point. Wii U graphics are much stronger than that of the Wii. If you saw the bird demo or the Zelda demo shown at last E3, you would see that these graphics are utterly superb.

  26. Unless they have a new console ready, they won’t show it this year, since announcing a new console will damage current console sale, they can’t improvise on that. If it shown, it must on sale in 2013, not after…

    They surely do it, since they was overwhelmed by the Wii at first, they will take the WiiU seriously.

  27. I doubt that Sony and Microsoft are going to do that.
    There is still a lot of potential in both PS3 and Xbox 360, especially in PS3. Even if they should happen to reveal some infos, I believe it will be just reaaally few things that could be changed in the end anyway.
    Oh, and I guess there is no chance for the WiiU to be better than PS4 and Xbox 720 anyway. I mean, it won’t be even new generation, it will be in the current generation. The only way the WiiU could stand a chance to be just slightly better than the other two would be if Sony and Microsoft would decide to release PS3 and Xbox 360 once again, the exact same consoles, just with different numbers behind their names. I’m not hating on Nintendo, not at all. I love Nintendo, but the things I said are what the facts say.

  28. So excited for E3 I love Nintendo the most but I use all my systems almost everyday. And for all who want so say there isn’t going to be much improvement in graphics coming is pretty true. I mean look how amazing BF3 looked on pc. Yes there is a little ways to go that’s true but not far. I believe that soon its all going to be processing power to get that 1080 and 60 FPS.

  29. I wonder about that. Showing off a system is one thing, proving that it’s more than one box is another. If they show it off this year and release it late 2012 or early 2013, then it won’t be as powerful as the fanboys claimed it to be. Then again, if Nintendo releases the Wii U before the competition at a good price, then the other two might get screwed over. Remember, Nintendo only showed a concept of Wii U at E3, so they didn’t set anything on fire.

    The GTA 5 trailer should tell us that the next gen is ready to kick off, and I have a feeling Nintendo will steal the thunder from the other two with games and functionality.

  30. I love Nintendo , i am defiantly am getting a Wii U at Launch and considering getting the next Xbox. I am not a Graphic whore like these PC, Microsoft , and Sony Fan boys. I personally like a balance between Graphics and Game play. I say Nintendo won’t get its Thunder stolen. Sony won’t reveal there next gen. console because they said it won’t release until 2014, it would be stupid of Sony to unveil it now. Microsoft on the other hand have rumors that say they will show there next gen console next E3. I support Nintendo mainly, but i also support Microsoft.

  31. One thing none of us can deny though…Nintendo leads the market in any direction it wants to. If it wasn’t for Nintendo, Microsoft and Sony would never have bothered with the whole motion control thing, and they would never prematurely announce their own next-gen consoles in spite of their current consoles supposedly going for ten years. Nintendo might not have the greatest graphical power or the greatest third-party offerings right now (neither of which really mean much anyway), but they sure got the competition by the balls.

  32. Look! I look forward to Sony and MS new systems, just not until 2014. With all the support that both these systems have gotten within the past 2 years, it would not only seem like a money grab, but desparate as well. The only one that needs a new system now is Nintendo. With the Wii-U offering HD and more power, they will now be able to take full advantage of multiplatform games. This, in addition to their own triple AAA titles, plus all the other features (ex. backwards compatiblity), are a BIG win for Nintendo. Regardless of income, or how big your house is, I think people will get tired of having so many different gadgets. With the Wii-U around the corner, I hope this to be the only console that I need/want to own (@ least till 2014).

  33. Ugh. Fan-boys of every stripe make me sick of gaming. Way too much stupid speculation going on. Way too many trolls.

  34. I personally think this is hillarious. Consoles being shown just to compete with Nintendo? This seems to be a recurring thing. PSMove anyone? I hope the other consoles fail as hard as that did. This just reinforces the idea that I shouldn’t bother buying another 360, seeing as my old one broke a year ago. At least if I buy the Wii, you can use the consoles and things on the WiiU.

    Nintendo – 1
    Microsony – 0

  35. Well this is not a surprise. I’m interested to see what they come up with. However I don’t see the PS4 and the new Xbox being more graphically powerful than the Wii U but obviously more powerful than their predecessors. I don’t think it will be like this generation was with the Wii vs. PS3 and 360. Even if the PS4 and new Xbox are more powerful than the Wii U it won’t be by much and most likely hardly noticeable, like comparing the Gamecube to PS2. It’s going to be pretty much an even match up with all 3 when it comes to their graphical output. I’m not really someone who cares about graphics but this is my take on it. I’m a huge fan of Nintendo and from those Wii U tech demos I think I’ll be happy with the visuals. Aside from all that I’m excited for the thing that matters most and that is the games and when it comes down to the Wii U I have high hopes.

  37. In my opinion ithink tht the ps3 and the wii are the best consoles in the seventh generation(dont get me wrong xbox is pretty good too) to tell u the truth it isnt just graphics tht the ps 3 and xbox improved but it also improved online unlike nintendo .

  38. Nintendo Rules. Sony with their Pussystation and Microdick with their ShitBox arent gonna harm the awesome WII U!

  40. Lol i remember a youtube video showing what these consoles may look like. THEIR FAKE… the 720 looked like a Spaceship and the PS4 looks that it came from 2100. here it is if you want to see. I could not find origional youtube vid but i found the video that is the same with the X Spaceship thing!!! LOL

  42. I would laugh so hard if Microsoft/Sony make there controllers have touch screens on them, or somewhere integrated. Nintendo really do lead the way. By the way, I’m not a fan boy of Nintendo, I enjoy all three company’s just I like Nintendo better.

  43. OMFG that’s it since you people don’t think I guess i have to do it for you.

    The PS4 and 720 graphics will NOT be better than the Wii-U’s graphics, atleast not by that much. Even if it is what do you think will happen? Wii vs 360 vs PS3 what happened?

    PS3, and 360 had better graphics BUT they cost an ARM and A LEG to make them so the were OUTRAGEOUSLY priced. Wii had the perfect price appeal and games so they won?

    Just think HOW MUCH WOULD IT TAKE NOW TO MAKE BREAKTHROUGH GRAPHICS HIGHER THAN 1080p AND STILL BE AFFORDABLE SO REPEAT OF LAST GEN DOESN’T HAPPEN?

  44. sony and microsoft will show tech demos, nintendo will show tonnes of real games :D were gonna win this one as well
