I don't know how abreast you all are of this particular development, but I'll summarize:

Nintendo plans on revealing some sort of new hardware sometime around E3 (AROUND E3... yeah, right). Supposedly this hardware will coexist with both the GCN and the GBA successors. No other details have been released.

However, some new tidbits jsut popped up...

"A recent interview with Nintendo head Satoru Iwata published by a Japanese newspaper has revealed more information on the company's 2004 mystery machine, which was first hinted at in November of last year.

Iwata said that the product will "enable fun and movement not seen before." He added: "I expect it to become a third pillar, next to GameCube and Game Boy."
The Nintendo leader confirmed that the product would be unveiled at the Electronics Entertainment Expo 2004, which begins this May in Los Angeles.

Nintendo has remained very hush-hush regarding the specifics of the device, but company representatives have previously confirmed that it would not be a full-blown to successor to any existing hardware."

Maybe it's a hand-held GCN player.

I doubt it. It's supposed to be some revolutionary thing, something that will become as important to Nintendo as their consoles and handhelds... if Iwata is to be belieed, at least.

A handheld GCN player is hardly that amazing.

Plus, whatever it is, it is suposed to coexist wit the successors of the GCN and the GBA< not the GCN and the GBA themselves.

Well... after nintendo got burned majorly with the virtual boy... it would take real guts to try to do anything along those lines again.. even with the better technology...

Yeah, its probably either something like that, or some other sort of thing that plays differently than either a console or handheld. If you look at his quote, it almost sounds like some sort of thing you play physically:

"enable fun and movement not seen before"

So maybe its a better developed vr system. After all, they should have the technology now to make it pretty decent (i.e. full color).

maybe it's a giant, purple dildo with a picture of mario on it.


I'm interested to see what Nintendo comes up with.

Hmm...yeah, I'm thinking of the 'movement' phrase as well. Maybe it's like those video cams that you hook onto the TV, so you are on screen, and you can interact with the stuff coming toward the center screen.

The TV Cams.

Those just came out a little while ago, and I hope Nintendo does something like that. That'd be so cool: Virtual Reality without hurting your eyes!

Actually, PS2 has something like that.

:dpsilly:

Would be interesting, nonetheless.

I am fairly sure that they already have a few of those circulating in Japan. ;)

Hoo ha ha, I'd say that there's an overwhelming indication that this'll be R.O.B 2!  The incredible sequel!

I mean, obviously R.O.B was awesomely revolutionary, so all Nintendo has to do is top their original design and come out with a game slightly better than Gyromite!  Maybe they'll give R.O.B a third arm or something...

Yeah, but it was such a lovable little guy...I mean, it had such zest and moved back and forth with such glee, and...hmmm, yeah, actually R.O.B did kind of suck...bwa ha ha.
