Project cafe

Post  Gasman40 on Mon Apr 25, 2011 3:12 pm

Nintendo has a new console coming out going by "project cafe" for the time being. It's been officially announced by nintendo (ign has article) and is supposed to be even more powerful than xbox and ps3. Will be interesting to see how it pulls up. Going to keep an eye on how it goes.

This could be big if they start producing mature games rather than just kids games. I presume that's what they're going for considering they're upping it's performance rate.

Any article containing "sources" is all bullshit, to me anyway. I won't believe it til I see it.

If it is true, I don't really care. Sony for me.

That would be good. Maybe a shooter or something. Something that just isn't for ten year olds. lol

This is interesting. I didn't expect Nintendo to be first through the door, but they have been running out of steam for quite some time so I understand. They just have to make sure that their hardware competes with the other 2 and I don't just mean PS3/360, but sony and Microsoft's next gaming machines. Yes, Nintendo have to move away from their "kiddie" image and embrace adult gamers as well. I will be interested in seeing the playable console at E3.

Yeah exactly. I just want new games, not just repeats of Mario and shit.

Its called the Wii U.

Crap name. lol.

It features a controller that looks like an ipad in that it houses screen that you receive gameplay from the console (cant use it outside your home). The console itself is full HD and apparently more powerful than this gen HD consoles. Games like Batman AC, Aliens Colonial Marines etc have been announced for it. Its backward compatible with the wii and comes out in 2012.

I don't know what to make of it. Using this ipad controller looks too large and cumbersome for games. What does everyone think?

Im not too sure what to make of it.

I like the idea of the controller displaying inventory (in the Zelda clip) so you have an uninterrupted full screen but the rest was just a bit too gimicky for my liking.

And WTF is with them showing their Mii games. It looks shit and makes their system look like a joke. The preview of the Wii U was not thought out very well.

I wont be buying one.

Flash memory? Optical disk? WTF!

If they want to handle this gen. and next gen. games they had better make sure there "proprietary high-density optical discs" are impressive.

lol, apparnently L.A. Noire on the 360 needs 3 discs!
