Nintendo of Japan has, not only confirmed the existence of the new console, but it will be playable at this year’s E3 (as we predicted)
“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,”
While no other information was given by nintendo of Japan, multiple sources have confirmed that the new system is in full effect and will be more powerful then the PS3 and 360, and will have a touch screen controller with a camera that may (or may not be) used as a sensor bar for the wiimote (or maybe even something similar to kinect).
Only time will tell, but the good news is, we know what time we will know. See you at E3
