No one really knows. It's specs are said to be much more powerful than PS3, full 1080p graphics, dual analog controllers with 4 inch screens on them, Blu-ray capable, etc.

I'm guessing there will be an optional "motion" element to it... like PlayStation Move. Rather than that be the only way to play, like the Wii... which is a great call.

The possibilities with the screens on the controllers are pretty endless. From selecting plays in Madden privately, to displaying all your ammo and such that would otherwise clutter up the TV screen. Those are just basics, I'm sure there will be much more innovative ideas that come from the controller screens. I've also heard that they might be able to stream your "section" of the TV screen, so you could potentially play Mario Kart from another room, or something like that.

so basically it sounds like their glorified answer to the XBOX 360/PS3 instead of the lead off system for the next generation of consoles

how is it not a lead-off system? it's more powerful than the PS3. What else do you want added to it?

i highly doubt the graphics will be comparably better to the PS3/XBOX 360 like those systems were to the original XBOX/PS2.

Well, Mario isn't going to look like a real human man, he's still going to look like Mario.

But as far as realistic titles go, this should beat out PS3 and XBOX, based on the specs.

Nintendo is the frontrunner of video games. I mean, the NES started it all as far as highly successful home consoles go.

N64 perfected the analog control stick that is so prevalent in gaming today.

Wii started the motion gaming trend that PS3 and XBOX just got to. Now, I'm not saying the Wii is perfect, but it was a frontrunner.

How? This will have better graphics than the PS3 and XBOX, at least it should.

maybe frontrunner was a poor word choice, they may have been first for all that shit but Sony an XBOX (mainly Sony) has done all that much better.

COD, GTA, etc aren't made by Sony, nor Microsoft.... they are 3rd party developers. The Wii doesn't have strong 3rd party support, because of it's specs. This should.

Graphics are going to hit a plateau for a while. It's not going to get much better for a while. I mean, it will... but not as noticeably as that jump was.

so you're saying Nintendo with these new specs is going to completely abandon their family friendly reputation and get into the mature games business? i don't see it happening.

not that i necessarily think they should, from a business standpoint it's beneficial to them that they continue to be the console for children and family's. it's just not necessarily for me.

i don't disagree with this, but let's not act like this new system is really going to be revolutionary on graphics alone.

Black Ops is on the Wii
Modern Warfare is on the Wii
World at War is on the Wii
Resident Evil 4 is on the Wii
Grand Theft Auto is on the Nintendo DS

... there are violent games on Nintendo consoles... however, people who play those games don't play them on the Wii, because the controls are shitty, and the graphics don't compare to PS3 or XBOX.

The Wii was definitely touted as a family friendly console, and it worked for them. However, many people don't like it for that reason. It appears they won't be focusing on the family friendly aspect with this new console.

I expect the Wii to still last for many years and cater to those "casual" players that still love it.

The fact that this console has actual controllers bodes well for the types of games you are talking about Spence.
